February 2019: Social Share Recap
1 Corinthians 6:19: Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?
What area of our life are we talking about when it comes to fitness?
For this specific event, we focused on the BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT. For me personally, my strengths are mind and spirit but I struggle often with keeping my body fit. In our social share conversations, it became apparent that every single person in the room struggled with one of the areas.
We are a combination of different areas of life. What we find is that often we may be good or have mastered a specific area but struggle in others. This is very common for all individuals. I personally don’t believe anyone has it all figured out. And, if you believe you do, please share that news with the world. haha!
The other realization is that we have to know how to invest in all of these areas. Not to try to reach perfection in each one, as that is clearly impossible. But aim to make ourselves just a little better than we were yesterday.
In addition, we also need to learn the importance of community which includes sharing with a friend your struggles and/or finding an expert who can take you in that area to the next level.
That’s why this group is so important to me. This isn’t about one person having all of the answers but about coming together to support, pray, educate, and empower one another.
1 John 4:4 says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” NIV.
This means, that not only has God created other individuals to come alongside to support us, but more importantly, He has put His breath into our lungs giving us strength and power to overcome adversity and challenges in life.
Everything ties together because our mind and heart lead every decision we make. And even in the decisions that just happen in our life, like a hardship, unexpected illness, changes in our daily routine, it will affect the way we proceed with our purpose as leaders and children of God. Therefore, focus on investing your time and energy wisely, and aim to grow spiritually so you can maneuver through life content with God’s plan.
What’s most important in the end for you to remember:
- You have to be real with yourself and admit your weaknesses. That’s when you can begin working on yourself. But don’t forget to remind yourself of your strengths and be sure others know about them. We often can be our worst enemies because we speak words of failure simply because we are not reminding ourselves of the things we do very well.
- You have to be willing to ask for help and receive the coaching. Also, show up! You can’t grow without coming to our events and networking with other women who can pour wisdom and guidance into you. This is where “grit” comes into place: courage to resolve.
- Surrender everything to God. Allow God to lead you in every area. Download our free e-book “Lead by God – Living a Life with Purpose” for more information.
