I’ve been thinking a lot of thoughts lately…do I sound like POOH bear?

Anyhoo…Thoughts about my mission, my current existance, my goals, my frustrations, etc…  Overall this October has been filled with un-rest…stress…contemplation…and SICKNESSES!  ICKY!  I know the mental really affects my physical. I also know that the definition of INSANITY is to continue to do the same thing over and over expecting different results.  Thus…my blog about CHANGE on Tuesday.

I am sick of the unrest and sick of the lack of peace…So where do I start?  I KNOW where to start…with GOD!  He is the start of it all and my #1 priority, my first love.  I’ve been neglecting HIM for too long, taking HIM for granted and separated from HIM due to my own stupidity. 

The past 3 days I’ve been pouring into who I love the most~ God, Travis and my family and guess what…I feel better both emotionally and physically.  I’ve listened to several amazing messages from pastors I HIGHLY respect to fill my heart and mind with wonderful thoughts about my Jesus, my KING, my Father, my Love!  And that love has spilled over to my DH…I had a GREAT date with Travis yesterday~ The first in a long time!   Because God is LOVE, I need HIM and HIS love in order to have love to give to others.  He holds a stockpile of Love and gives it to us when we give HIM LOVE.  It’s so wonderful!!  God is GOOD!!

I plan to keep going after God; Keeping HIM my #1 priority in life above ALL else…and YES even above my husband and above my children.  HE has to be FIRST!  Becuase I know from horrible past experiences that when HE is not #1, everything else falls apart!!  I want HIS love so I can GIVE MORE LOVE and have more passion for the all those looking for true LOVE!  I want to really make an impact on this world and there is no way I can do that if I don’t have massive amounts of LOVE! 

Thanks for reading this!  I love that I have friends who love me~ I LOVE YOU too!!

God Bless us all!!

  1. You are SO right. I am only starting to make my own strides in fitness and body image issue due to FINALLY putting HIM first. And what do you know… family life got even sweeter too! He is SO good!

  2. Michelle,
    It is sooo great to hear that you keep God first in your life! I have been on/off your site for the past two weeks getting ideas for my new weight lifting/eatting schedule that I started last week and tonight is the first time I read your blog. I am a christian also and Love the Lord with all my heart. God is SO Good!

    I have had three children in the past 5 years and lost my last child in childbirth this past January. That was one of the hardest times of my life and I know that God kept me strong and he is the only way I was able to get through that experience. I have had a very hard time since January with my body because of the pregnancy/placenta issues that occurred. This is the first time in five years and three pregnancys that I am able (both mentally and physically) to focus on my body again. I wanted to write all this to let you know that you are truely an inspiration to me to get fit.
    I see where you are and it is my goal to accomplish the same feat. I set a goal of four months to see where I am at that time.

    Its so great to see someone that will openly put God first and is not ashamed of him. I do not know you but from what I read I feel as if you are just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. That is truely amazing in todays world! And I want you to know I applaud you for being so honest.

    God Bless.
