What you expect to look like after a day of squatting versus reality 😂 - Ladies; change happens at a different pace for everyone. When I began to workout I used to discourage myself because I would compare my results to others. I would be upset about not being lean, about not gaining enough muscle, and so on. Then I realized that this was MY BODY, and that no matter how much I wanted to have someone else's this was the body I was given. I accepted that and I began to focus on myself, on my body type, what worked for me and what did not. I realized that all of the disappointment I felt when I looked at myself came from the comparisons I made with other women's bodies, and had I not compared myself I would've been pretty happy with every little bit of progress I made, because I would have been comparing the old me to the new me. - We all are unique, our genetics and other factors determine the pace at which our bodies can transform. HOWEVER I guarantee you that you will see changes, and that if you begin to focus on yourself you will LOVE THEM. Do not let social media and how some people appear discourage your from your own journey. Focus on being the best version of yourself every day 💗💗#fit#snapchat#funny#selflove#booty#bossgirls#girlswholift#women#encouragement#wednesday#fit#fitspo#meme#fitness#weightgain#musclegain
THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST. ✔Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ✔ 1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
SURPRISE! Really made our day finding a #KindnessRock in Oak Ridge while walking in to lunch! 😃👭 ____________ This cute rock was hand painted by a student in the area. Thank you random person for making our day & inspiring my mom & I to want to paint rocks & hide them around LA to bring happiness to others!
It's a beautiful morning here on The West Coast! When I opened up my bible app to study a devotional, this jumped out at me. It says "Get rid of ALL the filth and evil in your lives". What it does NOT say is get rid of everything you're not comfortable with. . . . Sometimes, WE (Me included) don't realize the filth and evil that is transparent to others because we are sooooo sure we're doing the right things. This is where we SHOULD invite the Holy Spirit in to convict and correct. Key words: Convict AND correct! We are often times so caught up in what we see in the flesh, that we are blinded to what the spirit is showing us. So, let me encourage you today to ask God to remove the scales, to uproot and pull OUT anything that is IN you that is keeping you from seeing what he is revealing! It is time for us to rid ourselves of what displeases God. Be serious with God, honest with yourself and open your heart to receive his rebuke/correction! It's a beautiful thing, but it is also a DAILY process! . . . #thursdaymotivation#scriptureoftheday#BibleTalk#MinistryMoment#TheBookOfJames#RidFilth#Encouragement#TeachMoment#SetApart#Holiness#Righteousness#SeekYeFirst
As Americans we are all grieving for our country in our own way. As Christians the best thing we can do is go to the Lord in prayer. Check out these four prayers that we found on Crosswalk.com or go over to our Facebook page

I’ve spent my life trying to fit in. I’ve always wanted to please people, to make my parents proud, and to receive approval from anyone and everyone—my family, friends, partners, bosses, and teachers. To find true happiness we must be true to ourselves, live our own dreams, and be proud of what makes us unique instead of feeling the pressure to follow the crowd.
Keeping my thoughts light as a feather today! We can either choose to ALLOW things to change our demeanor or to CONTROL the way we respond.
