You've heard the saying, "If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you." Often, we fear the word Challenge, but we should embrace it! I spoke with a middle school girl today about how hard it was for her in Jefferson City schools. I told her that what is hard now will be easier later. Her teachers are preparing her for the things to come. We need to remember that in our training. Our Father in heaven wants us prepared! We must embrace the hardships we are going through because the joy of freedom is always better when we have had to endure the challenge. I know that when I am working out and my muscles are burning bad, I want to quit but I have to do it in order to get a change in my strength. Understanding where you want to go or what you want will help you get the breakthrough. I have had a recent dream where I was at the top of a huge water slide in the middle of the ocean. I climbed to the top, looked over the edge at the top and I froze. Why is it that we get so excited at the start of a great adventure but freeze? Is that faith? Absolutely not! So I've decided that in order to experience the slide into the refreshing cleansing ocean of God's creation, I'm going to have to push my faith to the next level. Doing hard things is not easy, but with God it can be the most rewarding breakthrough of my life! I can't wait to hear the next chapter of C5 Fitness and the lives of people that tell a great testimony of our faithful God!
