You get to this point. I get to this point. We all need to get to this point. It is now that the self-teaching moment of the day, instead of the self-medicating moment, has arrived.
But am I helpless?
The food cravings roaring within: sugar, crunch, salt, carbs, caffeine…my body is saying, you’re bored, you’re distracted, you’ve stalled out, you’re looking left and right while My perfect will for you is straight ahead.
Truth be told, my feels a little faint today from the exhaustion of four nights of back-to-back baby-interrupted rest. I toil on. I lean into Christ and the pillars which uphold my days: faith, fitness and food.
I am not helpless.
I tell myself that getting kitchen-bound right about now to heal emotions and feelings isn’t going to help me reach the goal. It’s not. It will in fact distract and detract. I must toil on and keep my eyes on the prize if I am to help myself.
My goal is actually, literally to sit here and write to you…and you…and you, all you beautiful souls who read this needing to know there is a still more excellent way for us as mothers. And it’s not just my life that holds those keys.
We are not helpless.
I toil on staying on task and my spirit lifts because I am within what I am to do. I align with my ideal, stay the course, finish the race and keep the faith. Then I have not fallen prey to the acedia which tries in desperation to strangle me.
I further have no reason for a mental or emotional self-flogging. I am the victor over self by Christ in me. I toil on! About that cross today that I carry, that you carry…it gets lighter with every YES and oneness of our will with His. What are you avoiding?
My fingers are speeding across the keyboard now with zest to also bring you passion and purpose for this life, this fight, your plight.
You are not helpless.
His holy will is often well hidden beneath that which on the surface is kids that won’t quit fighting, the schedule with never an opening, and the hum drum of keeping your life together…just barely.
Let’s get you finding your forward everyday through mercy and a proven method to make you the mother you always wanted to be and the wife you knew you could be.
You were made for this. Be not afraid.
Book a chat with me. I take time to speak with each woman for an hour or more and light the fire of conviction and commitment. What are you waiting for? Find this hour of time FIRST, and then find the rest of the fit and faithful life!
Looking forward to powerfully encouraging YOU,
"The WISE Gals program is truly life changing. For over a year I kept telling myself I would start exercising someday, but someday never came until I made the commitment to begin. With 10 children, 7 of whom I’m still homeschooling, I would never have found the time to exercise on my own. But Rebecca gave me a treasure chest of exercises, and methods to fit it in joyfully and purposefully. She is an amazing coach and knows just when to push and when to praise. My whole family is grateful that I completed the program and I am still as enthusiastic about it. I’m more flexible and stronger than I thought I ever could be and now have energy to be the happy and productive mom and wife that I always wished I could be." - Michelle M.
