My Love Project!
"To reflect on my love project, I need to go back to the beginning. I left the Leadership seminar in Toronto very agitated. In our first week home, my agitated state was brought to my attention several times by those closest to me. Something was off, and I needed to figure it out. Bottom line, I had been a physical slug for about 3 years after a bout with Lyme disease, and I knew in the bottom of my heart God was calling me out. So the transformation of my physical state of being while staying close to God began. I didn’t want to just power through out of newfound determination and discipline, I wanted to experience transformation in relationship with Jesus. The beauty of Jesus is: even though I will never be just like him, I can be WITH him. I can invite him to be with me at anytime. This makes all the difference.
How has this played out so far? If I were to use a few words to describe the greatest transformation that has occurred, they would be OVERWHELMING PEACE! It is hard to describe, but it is this feeling in my core that God is working everything out for good. I think of Jesus in the boat when the storm came. Even though panicking disciples, rough waters and howling winds surrounded him, he was perfect peace. From his inner peace he spoke with authority and calmed the sea. I am getting glimpses of his peace this summer as storms come and I move through them. It is so amazing. Storms that would have taken me out in the past barely alter my course now. Thank-you Jesus.
As I write this, I am 10 pounds lighter and on my way to my goal, but I am so much closer to LOVE than I ever could have imagined. I am excited for CAMP to see what God has in store and I am thankful for Warrior and the life-saving training."
