Operating as usual


Just as a confident man doesn’t wonder if he’s confident, a happy man does not wonder if he’s happy. He simply is.⠀

And while pleasure is great, it’s not the same as happiness. Pleasure is correlated with happiness but does not cause it. Ask any drug addict how their pursuit of pleasure turned out. Ask an adulterer who shattered her family and lost her children whether pleasure ultimately made her happy. Ask a man who almost ate himself to death how happy pursuing pleasure made him feel.⠀

Pleasure is a false god. Research shows that people who focus their energy on materialistic and superficial pleasures end up more anxious, more emotionally unstable and less happy in the long-run. Pleasure is the most superficial form of life satisfaction and therefore the easiest. Pleasure is what’s marketed to us. It’s what we fixate on. It’s what we use to numb and distract ourselves. But pleasure, while necessary, isn’t sufficient.

We have a daily war with ourselves in our minds about who we are, what we do, and how we should be. Our insecurities, fears, and sadness are choices that we make in our minds—we are fighting this war daily.
We all have the strength to pull ourselves from this room in mind to bring it to another door, but it is also our choice whether or not we want to open the door to happiness and love.
We all have the choice and strength to determine our lives—we always had this.
Let’s choose to HAVE A STRONG DAY...always.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig opens up on coronavirus recovery: 'I kept pushing back'

Craig believes that faith, exercise and healthy eating combined helped him heal — though faith was most important, he stressed.

"First and foremost, prayer was the dominant reason for my surviving. Without prayer, I could not have done the other things ... I could not have gotten out of bed, or regained my appetite, or started exercise."

Detroit Police Chief James Craig opens up on coronavirus recovery: 'I kept pushing back' Detroit Police Chief James Craig says he beat COVID-19 with exercise, vitamins, liquids and healthy food. "People need to hear from the survivors."

Fear is the greatest rival of love. - Lisa Bevere

“There is no fear in love, for perfect love drives out fear...” 1 John 4:18
There is so much freedom in this when you experience pure love in your heart. Freedom in every relationship to give and receive love unconditionally, freedom to love yourself and treat yourself well, freedom to go after your dreams with all your heart assured that God wants to bless you and not punish you 🙌

I pray today that you experience this freedom and live your life in love, not fear 🙏❤️

One of the hardest parts of joining any type of challenge is the commitment to be consistent and see it through to the finish.
Today is day 8 of our 100 days of movement challenge! 🕺
Some of you haven’t started yet, some started and stopped, and some have been consistent every day. This isn’t a judgement or condemnation, just a chance to take a look at “what is my excuse, obstacle, challenge or fear?”

It could be lack of information (you didn’t know about the challenge or the $100 raffle involved), or it could be a time excuse or a fear of failure 🤷‍♀️.
Whatever your reason is, I want you to take a different perspective......
This challenge isn’t just about movement, it’s also about the mental and emotional transformation that takes place when you commit and then act on that commitment every day for 100 days. It’s about the process, not the outcome 😀

So what obstacles are getting in your way?

January is human trafficking awareness month.
O.U.R. is an organization I’ve been supporting for a couple years, and they have great educational materials to help you recognize the signs of trafficking. Always be aware of your surroundings because you never know when you might be someone’s hero 🙏
Praise God this girl was rescued 🙌

After learning the signs of human trafficking through O.U.R.’s online training and other resources, this woman courageously helped a young girl on an airplane get help. You can read her experience in her words below. (Check out our free training at⁠


Today was a good day & pretty earth shattering at the same time. I went way beyond out of my comfort zone but I pushed through and I’m so happy I did. I was on a flight going to Salt Lake City when I noticed a young girl and an older man sitting together. There were so many signs of them being involved with s*x trafficking. I’ve read articles and charity movements on what to look out for and cases on how they’ve been caught. She wouldn’t talk or look at me when I tried to talk to her. She was scared and fragile. He was sitting in the middle seat taking up a lot of space from her seat to stop her from moving around. I switched seats behind me to be able to get word to her. I wasn’t sure at first how to do it without him noticing, so I wrote a note and when she looked out the plane window I flashed it quickly so she could see. “Are you okay?” was my first note. She shook her head no. I wrote the second note “do you need help?” She looked behind and I barely got a glimpse of her eyes but it will be a look I will never forget. She needed help and I was the only person on this plane that knew what she was involved in. I informed the flight attendants who are trained to handle s*x trafficking situations and the rest was handled. I wish I could hug her. I wish I could hold her hand as she goes on to the next step of her life. I don’t know what her future holds but I do know it’s not with him.⁠

ETA: is a great site to gain more knowledge on this issue.
