The simplest of things motivate and carry me through my day! I tell myself all the time fitness is a faith walk. Its walking out  everything you believe in, living it out every single day!

One of my coworkers at the gym is currently doing a personal Bible study. What’s beautiful is that  each morning over the past several days, when I’m dragging my exhausted body in the gym to work out at the whee hours of the morning before my day gets hectic, I’m met by the following inspirational verses on our break room message board! I just started noticing them at random one day! Thanks Austin! So sweet of you to share the faith so openly, let’s me know I truly have angels among me in this process!

I am a firm believer that God always sends a messenger when you’re on the path to your destiny,  not saying the journey will be perfect or easy, but He always sends protection and encouragement to carry you through! Think about the context of #FootPrints poem!

Footprints in the Sand - The Journey

These message board posts are God’s footprints carrying me through, giving me strength to keep pushing forward! Blessed to be a Blessing!  Read and Be Encouraged!  I will be adding more as he continues to share each day, so stay tuned!
