Push It!

Go ahead. Admit it.

As soon as you saw this title (if you're a child of the 80s - 90s) you automatically started humming a little ditty by S-S-S-Salt N Pepa! ;-)

Well... I'm certainly not going THERE, but I thought it was a great title.

I'm learning how to PUSH myself.

Push through pain.

Push through exhaustion.

Push through depression.

Push through hurt and bitterness.

I could go on and on.

The point is, you'll never get anywhere in life by sitting around crying about it.

You gotta get UP.  Get GOING. Move FORWARD.

Even if it starts out as baby steps.

Do whatever it takes to take the FIRST STEP toward health and fitness.  Not just physical, either... I'm talking about TOTAL FITNESS...

Mind.  Body.  Soul.

Several months ago, I was in my "pit" having one whale of a pity party.  (Pun intended.)

"I'm so sick of this."
"I'm tired of feeling this way."
"I hate my life."

Then I heard my Daddy's voice in my head...

"The only one that can change you is YOU."

I started off walking.

Now I'm running.

Only small sprints right now, but I know if I keep PUSHING myself, it won't be long until I can run the whole mile.  Then 2.. Then 3.

With the Lord on my side there's NOTHING I can't do!

Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 3:13-14)

What do you need to PUSH through today?

Get up, Girl.

Dust yourself off and...
