One of the hardest things to do is to truly trust God. Trust is so hard because fear ferociously screams into every part of your being the very opposite of what you are trying to do. So when does this process of trust really happen for someone? After being on top of life personally and professionally, everything slid downhill when I injured my neck and over the course of several years, underwent four cervical surgeries. A life of healthy freedom transmuted into a life of chronic pain and its significant limitations. During these somewhat darkened times, I could no longer pretend to be complacently religious, or to conveniently feel spiritual or to fake having immeasurable faith. I needed something beyond my own strength just to survive the basic challenges of each day. This is when I began to truly trust God.
I felt like an empty bottle, helpless and insignificant, afloat on drifting water in the deep blue, boundless ocean. Seemingly, there was no place to go nor was there any reason to move forward. Over many miles of what had seemed like unpredictable wandering, I, like the bottle, ventured from the wide open waters of chronic suffering to a narrower, more defined, stream of learning, before eventually finding myself safely ashore in a new place. It is a place of redemption where my soul no longer yearns for the charms of my former ways of living. In order to gain trust in God, I had been emptied from self-sufficiency, all the while unaware that I was actually being guided from nowhere to a shoreline of designed purpose.
By faith, this is why I construct this website and begin my calling. It is a distinct, but unique calling – one that is committed to a shared journey with others. As a walking biography about the grace of God, I openly share the chapters of my life and assist others to live more fully and effectively, specifically in the areas of weight loss motivation, living with chronic pain and overcoming obstacles. Regardless of how you have ended up where you are, you have to trust God that your painful experiences are not your final expressions of life. Pain and adversity cause us to seek the real truth behind the deeper meaning of nearly everything. As a result, we tend to place our trust in something that will fuel our human capacity to see more clearly, to change for the better, and to become more whole in our entire being. Just as you are right now let me help guide you to the source of complete reconciliation. Why not put your trust in something that does not bow down to fear and offers your spirit a guarantee of eternal life? This is when the process of regenerative transformation actually begins…
