Living Life As An Adventure !!

Living Life As An Adventure !!

Warrior Dash 2017

 

Yes this happened on a gorgeous Florida Saturday on February 11, 2017!  I share these pictures and this post with you because believe it or not I once was so depressed that I could not even dream of doing something like this!! I was afraid of everything and this would have certainly heightened my anxiety level to the max!!  BUT…

BUT thank God that He has healed me of my debilitating depression and now I LOVE life and am a healthy active, adventure seeking strong daughter of the KING.  Yup, my baby was just around 3 years old and my oldest was around 8 and I was suffering from such severe depression that going to the mall was a mountain I could not climb.  Going to Disney, the happiest place on earth, caused me severe anxiety.

Nowadays, when I go do all these “crazy adventures” the Lord will remind me, “remember when this was a daunting thing for you to even consider? ”  I love it when He reminds me from where He has rescued me from!! It is a healthy reminder that makes me appreciate my life EVERYDAY!  Never forget!! This is why I LOVE my LORD and SAVIOR so much.  Sometimes when I close my eyes, I can see Him reaching down from Heaven and lifting me up from a  garbage filled pit that was my life before I truly understood who HE was and then HE taught me who I was in HIM!  Brothers and Sisters, the love our Father has for us is beyond what we can think, I know I can’t even wrap my mind around it sometimes.  And that’s OK because the love I experience with my Lord here in this life overwhelms me all the time.

If you suffer from anxiety, depression, OCD, or any other type of mental illness, take heart, HE who created you loves you and wishes to heal your mind and restore your life!  Many don’t like to talk about or even admit they have wrestled with this disease, but If we don’t talk about it how can you have HOPE?!  Believe me when I tell you that God wants you to live a free and abundant life.  Free from the strongholds that keep us bond.  Here are some books you can read to start you on your healing journey.

  1. The Bible (all lives questions are answered in the bible!)
  2. Loved Like Never Before Discovering the Father Heart of God by Ken Symington
  3. Healing Through Deliverance by Peter Horrobin

I leave you with these beautiful words from scripture – Psalm 139:13-16

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  Amen!

You are Loved Beloved !

Life is Good in more ways than one!

I always think and say this out loud, “We are very fortunate to live where we do and to have what we have. Many people would consider our  life style that of royalty. ”  My children just roll their eyes at me because they don’t understand what I’m trying to convey to them, yet.  They are shielded from all the horrors of the world, the sadness, sickness and devastation that comes from living in conditions unfit for any human being.  Recent events in our banking and real estate industries have forced us, Americans to be plagued with poverty, homelessness and sickness as well.

Our family members, friends, neighbors and fellow citizens are loosing their jobs, their homes, their health insurance and life savings because of the condition of our economy!  This scares me and motivates me to help, in a small way, but help none the less.   So when I read an article in the local newspaper that stated how one of our local community events was going to help local families struggling to survive, I was thrilled!

The event was called “The Pumpkin Fest” and the event was being coordinated by a company called Life is Good .  The festival had many activities and games but what mattered to me was simple.  Every time someone tossed a disc, they would be helping a disadvantaged family in Tampa toss their problems away.  Every time someone carved a pumpkin they would be helping a single mom or dad start a new life.  How exciting that you could go out and enjoy a nice family evening playing games with your children and carving pumpkins, knowing that in your enjoyment, you were bringing a new hope to families in need, a mom and dad struggling to provide for their children.  That is Sweet to me!

So, when I saw these beautiful rows of  Carved Pumpkins I was overwhelmed with joy for all the families that these pumpkins represented! What a night!  A wonderful time was had by all while contributing to a great cause!  And I really did appreciate all the talent that was on display that night!

Have you been visited by  Life is Good lately?? Contributing made my family feel good, even if it was in a small way.  Share your contributions with me, I’m excited to hear what everyone is doing to help in their own way!
