Like, can you believe this is happening? I am feeling so pumped up about Reshape your mind and lose 'weight'. My 90 days challenge starting on the 7th September 2020.....to put it more precisely on Monday. Yep, this Monday!
The surprising thing about it is, I am doing this in front of everyone to watch and see what happens in 90 days. Holy Spirit I trust You and I say yes.
Yes, to surrendering to God and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead me in all things. (Romans 12:1)
Yes, to letting go of rubbish food and negative emotions, voices, education, people and memories which cause damage to my body which could cause it to grow weak and become sick.
Yes, to facing the lies other people have told me and I have told myself over the years about myself and my body.
Yes, to no longer hiding behind insecurities and excuses - from God and myself. Instead, I choose to love my neighbour as I love myself for His Glory. (Mark 12:30-31)
Yes, to living free indeed. (John 8:36)
Yes, to being 'weightless' so I can live easy and light in the presence of God. (Matthew 11: 28-30)
Yes, to letting go of every 'weight' so I can focus on the race set before me.
There are so many things and areas to say yes to.
YES! YES! YES! 90 days challenge, let's do this.
How did this come about?
I won't go into too much detail but I when to a mother & daughter retreat and spoke some of past experiences. While sharing I began to talk about my weight and how I had asked God why I never seem to be able to win in this area. His response was unexpected.
"Michelle, you haven't given your stomach over to me". I was shocked.
I could not believe I was sharing this in front of everyone, but I had. It came out of my mouth before I could stop it or take it back. Ah, this my mouth! But I would soon discover the love of God toward me from this seemingly impulsive utterance. An invitation to release and receive #love, #healing and #freedom on another level.
Everything seemed normal as I went to bed that night. Until I was woken up around 3am with His response on my mind. I thought I had given everything over to You Father. "My stomach?" I felt, how do I put this.....sad! I didn't feel condemnation, I felt convinced in my heart - my stomach had become my idol. I worshipped my stomach by feeding it any and everything it wanted without any self-control. It seemed simple enough, but it was not and I was being prompted to this by Holy Spirit.
Now I know many of you reading this will probably exit at this point and that's okay but this is what I discerned regarding me. His truth brought revelation to set me free, and I knew it was time to embark on a NEW adventure with the Holy Spirit.
All I had to do, was go live at 7pm that day (Sunday) and share my experience by owning my stuff. But before that, I was given a template of sorts, a blueprint shall we say, the pieces to a journey puzzle:
RESHAPE YOUR MIND & LOSE 'WEIGHT' WITH HOLY SPIRIT - 90 days challenge.
I spent hours that morning taking notes about RESHAPE with Holy. I asked for one thing, "please Lord, give me a few people to do this with. I prefer not to do this alone."
What I have done since that Sunday is to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit and here I am doing just that again.
So, as you can see this is a personal journey for me which is being shared with anyone who feels it is TIME. People have asked me different questions about the challenge which I will answer in another post.
Time is running out. We must overcome now. It is time to die to everything which isn't of God in our lives. (Rev 12:11) I wanted to do this hidden but I am not allowed because time is of the essence. The time to BE who He says we are is around the corner, therefore we must overcome to become, that that which has been given is part of us now.
God wants to uncover how you were, so you can see and be who He says you are.
He is revealing Himself to you in a NEW way.
The only cost other than buying your own food is participating, being open and honest with yourself and applying yourself to the process.
There are somethings you have always known and always done but they are untrue. There are other things you carry that don't belong to you and they are slowing you down.
What has been said or spoken over you that has planted a lie which you have not been able to strip off? There are behaviours, habits and misconceptions which have delayed your progress. You know what to do but find it hard to get it done, why?
There are emotions and thoughts you have buried so deep within, only your body gives the indication something is still present. You know enough is enough, it is time to face the hidden and covered areas of your soul/mind - IT IS TIME TO RESHAPE.
RESHAPE is building a community of #women tired of doing the same thing while expecting a different result in their body and soul. It is time to transform your #mind and your body. Let’s do this together.
This is not for the faint-hearted.
The renewing of the mind is a journey of transformation and re-education
It is going to take work, being vulnerable, open and dedicated. No judgements, just encouragement to achieve results.
If like me you are ready to lay down your weight issues to God and confront your issue with lack of self-control and discipline, this is for you.
You know what you need to eat and you know you need to exercise but you always fall off the wagon. This is for you.
You have tried to do it alone but with limited success and results, then you have to start all over again, this is for you.
You are confident of who you are and what you are capable of achieving but you want to look like you, this is for you.
You are knowledgeable but struggle with willpower and consistency, this is for you.
You know it’s a new day, a new beginning and you know your life depends on your body being healed, #healthy and whole, this is for you.
You can relate to the expression, “mind over matter”, this is for you.
