A Very Big Miracle

Chapter 15, Speak Truth is one of my very favorite chapters in my book because of the VERY BIG MIRACLE that happened in my life through the act of speaking truth in my life. I cannot wait for you to read about this miracle in my book!

(Excerpt Worthy of a Miracle pg. 195-196)
“Going through cancer and the coma, I learned the power of my thoughts and words. When I woke up in the hospital and could not speak, my thoughts quickly turned from defeat to determination. Backed by the power of the prayers of my family and friends, I
insisted that I was going to breathe on my own, get out of the bed, and walk again. I believed that God had not brought me this far to quit. No one was going to stop me. My thoughts became my words, which became my reality. 

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Rom. 12:2)

This was the Scripture I clung to while undergoing chemotherapy. Little did I know how it would impact the rest of my healing. Words are powerful. All of creation came to be simply through the power of God’s word. “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was
light” (Gen. 1:3). God’s word spoke creation into existence.

Our words are like the air we breathe. Our words give us life. It’s time to believe in the power of our words and the positive impact they can have on us. Speaking the truth out loud has changed my life, my faith, and my relationships with my family and friends. It has helped me let go of all the times in my childhood when I had no voice and learned to think my only real value was in how I looked or how I performed. Now I know that when I speak, Jesus is listening, even if no one else hears. I know this because of my personal relationship with him. Today, I know that when we speak God’s word, we have supernatural power and authority through Christ. And when we speak God’s words to ourselves, we do a better job of encouraging and uplifting with positive self-talk as we face life’s challenges.”

Today I want to encourage you to examine the words you are speaking to others and to yourself. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve had any experience with speaking God’s word out loud and what it has done for you.

Can we really Expect Miracles?

Do I have to keep training? The marathon is just around the corner, it is soooo close. But some days it’s hard to keep on keeping on. Every day I have to make an intentional decision: train or slack off.

Today I chose to persevere and stay strong.

Tuesday I talked with you about Expect Miracles from the JESUS acronym in my book: Just Live Today, Expect Miracles, Speak Truth, Use Your Gifts, Start Now!

When we think about Expecting Miracles, it really goes back to our mindset. For example, when you wake up each day do you automatically think how can I get through the day and try to find something to be positive about or do you wake up with an expectant mindset … expecting to notice the miracles in your life?

What would it be like if you went through an entire 24 hours expecting miracles all around you?

Let’s take a minute and look around at the miracles right now in front of us. It is a miracle we are alive and breathing! It is a miracle that it is raining! It is a miracle that we have a beautiful world that surrounds us!

When will we shift our perspective from just getting through the day to looking at life expectantly? I know from personal experience that when I live life expectantly my day turns out completely different, full of hope … full of excitement … full of miracles!

Leave a comment and let me know what miracles are you expecting in your life?

I know that six years ago today I was asleep in a coma and my family and friends were believing and expecting God for a miracle. And through their faith and prayers God delivered a miracle! What miracle are you expecting from God today?

What it Takes to Get Back Up

This week I had a chance to see my hero, Brene Brown! If you don’t know who she is you MUST check out her work (here). Her new book Rising Strong is rocking my world. Her subtitle alone is enough to stop you in your tracks. “If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a book about what it takes to get back up.”

Honestly, when we go after our goals it is all about learning how to get back up after we fall. When we embrace the truth, that we are not going to do it perfectly and that we will make mistakes along the way, half the battle is won.

For example, one of my goals for the 12 weeks of coaching series was to post a blog every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday … well I am falling. I am not going to be able to post every Saturday moving forward due to my upcoming book release. Part of my fall was over committing to a very full schedule. However, that’s not going to stop me from moving forward in my goals. I will continue to blog twice a week, train for my half marathon and work on my book release.

Let me know where you’ve fallen down in your goal and will you continue to pick yourself back up and keep moving forward?

When You Are Struggling

I feel like I want to quit so bad this week! Do you ever feel this way?

After running my longest run of the season I’ve been struggling with my mindset. It is totally crazy because I actually did very well on my 8 mile run.

For some reason I’m wrestling with a negative mindset and keep questioning myself … Can I really do this? Am I really strong enough?

And then I go to a long list of “what ifs” …. What if I get an injury? What if I don’t finish the half marathon?

Have you ever done this? Worrying about the future and not living in the present moment?

Earlier this week I shared with you about Chapter 13 in my book Just Live Today. Honestly some days I can live in the moment and embrace what’s right here in front of me and then there are other days, like today, when I struggle feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and insecure about all kinds of things worrying about the future.

As much as I would like to tell you I’ve got it all figured out and I Just Live Today perfectly that simply is not true. Life is a balancing act. When you think about balancing, it does not mean that you are perfectly steady but that you are still slightly juggling things to keep the balance. I like to tell my clients, “Life is about progress, not perfection”.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you are struggling to Just Live Today and live in the moment? If not tell me what you are doing to stay live in the present.

Bad Habits to New Habits

I’m inviting you to pray this today: “Search the inner depths of my heart and expose anything that is not of You so I can be set free of it.” Excerpt from Stormie Omartian’s book The Power of Prayer to Change Your Marriage.

What do you need to be set free from?

In my quiet time I was reading Psalm 5:11-12 and part of it reads “Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You.” All of a sudden my eyes were opened to a “bad” habit I have. I have a habit of not being joyful, instead I have a habit of anxious thoughts and worrying.

I’ve decided I want to create a new habit of gratitude, thankful and joy filled thoughts to replace my bad habit of anxious and worried thoughts.

Let me know what “bad” habit you have and what new habit you can replace it with?

Whether you’re going through a difficult time or are simply looking for inspiration and a new perspective, Worthy of a Miracle will meet you where you are and help you see what could be. – Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author of You’re Already Amazing

I knew Linda’s story would be inspiring, but had no idea how much her book would touch my heart as a woman, a wife, a parent and a believer. Seeing how God orchestrated small and life changing miracles in her life literally moved me to tears as I witnessed the tangible proof of the power of God at work. Her story is a beautiful reminder of God’s sovereignty, packed with scriptural promises and practical steps for growing our relationship with God, while reminding us all that we are worthy of His miracles too. – Tracie Miles, Christian Speaker & Writer, and Author of two best-selling books, Your Life Still Counts: How God Turns Your Past Into A Beautiful Future and Stressed-Less Living: Finding God’s Peace In Your Chaotic World.

A Simple Tip to Overcome Stress

When you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your schedule what can you do to get rid of that tension?

One trick I’ve shared with my coaching clients over the past few years is an acronym I created called S.L.O.W.

Stop … stop what you are doing.
Listen … listen to your surroundings, to your heart, to God. What is it telling you?
Obey … be obedient in what you just heard.
Walk … put it into action, do it now.

Today when I was feeling overwhelmed I asked myself what can I do to stop feeling this way? Immediately I knew I needed to S.L.O.W. down.

Leave me a comment and let me know if there is anything you are feeling overwhelmed with today & be entered to win a copy of The Mended Heart by Suzanne Eller.

Living in God’s presence will shift you from being stressed to stressed-less. Check out Tracie Mile’s Stressed-less Living bible study here!

War Room

Have you seen War Room? Confession: I went twice this weekend!

This movie literally has changed my life. If you have not seen the movie, please go see it.

Will you take the challenge with me to step up and be more disciplined in your prayer life? I know when I sincerely meet with God, I leave a changed woman every single time. I’m not saying it will be easy, but I promise it is worth it.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

While discipline is so important for us to achieve our goals, it is even more important in our time with God. Our prayer lives must be top priority.

Let me know how disciplined you are in your prayer life or do you need to step it up with me? How might that impact the goals you are trying to achieve? Everyone who comments will be entered to WIN The Mended Heart by Suzanne Eller.

My Prayer Before 1st Chemo

This park is my special place. Before my first chemo treatment I sat here and prayed to God 5 simple words, “May your will be done“. At that point I did not know what was going to happen or what the journey was going to look like, but I released it to him that day.

I invite you to pray this simple prayer with me. God, may your will be done in my life.

Whatever goals you’re working on or the dreams you have I encourage you to hand them over to God and ask him to guide and lead you.

Romans 12:2 tells us that the renewing of our mind will literally transform us. To accomplish our goals we must have the mindset of Christ, which is positive. I firmly believe I would not be where I am today if I would have given up and had a negative mindset when I was learning to walk again after my illness.

How are you doing with your mindset? What is your mind focused on?

Lets say our affirmation together: I am worthy.

Whatever your goal is I want you to know YOU CAN DO IT!!! We can do this together.

Redefining Your Goal

I’m really embarrassed to show you the training video clip at the end … but I think it’s important to let you see me struggling because achieving our goals is not always pretty.

Today’s coaching tip is about redefining our goals.

A few weeks ago we set our goals. My goal is to run a half marathon on Nov. 8, just two days before my book release! But in the back of my mind I had another goal that was kind of blurry. It was to run the half marathon at a certain pace … a pace that is way to fast for me. I’m a pretty SLOW runner and the goal is unrealistic. Honestly, most people walk faster than I run!

So every time I go out for a run I keep putting extra pressure on myself because I’m comparing myself to whether or not I can achieve a faster pace. It’s really silly because my goal is to complete the half marathon period. It doesn’t matter how fast I run it. Just like selling my book, it does not matter how many books are sold, the only thing that matters is that I was obedient to what God called me to do, which was to write the book.

Today I want to encourage you to take a little time and really think about your goal. Do you need to redefine it?

Or are you someone who set a goal but then got off track and said maybe I’ll start later? 

What is God speaking to your heart today about your goals? Everyone who comments will be entered to WIN!

This months give away is this awesome book by Suzanne Eller, The Mended Heart.
