My apologies…this BB post will be a little backwards…I just gotta jump right into my devo and share some things on my heart today.
So it’s been 1 year since I stepped into the Circle of Trust and let me tell you I can’t wait to celebrate even more FiAversaries with these wonderful ladies! They truly inspire & motivate me to be better in all aspects of my life! I love starting mornings with you all!
A year ago-my very first bootcamp was titled Superheros for Jacob. I know you remember the story…(link below)
Here we are a year later mourning again…those who lost their lives in yet another senseless act. I pray for those families of lost loved ones in Las Vegas. I pray for the wounded fighting for their lives. I pray for the responders working tireless hours to tend to the injured and find clues to answer everyone’s question today…WHY? We may never know WHY. One thing we can rest on is that God will bring Good out of this Evil. He always does. Matthew 6:13 He tells us to pray “…do not lead us to temptation, but deliver us from evil”.
In light of all the pain and suffering in this world…think Nazi/WWII concentration camps with the Jews, Sept 11th, Sandy Hook, little Jacob Hall from SC, the Vegas shootings…I could go on and on. Finding answers, rest, & peace in these circumstances doesn’t always surface immediately. In fact we may hear “If God is so powerful then why doesn’t he do something about it? Why doesn’t he stop the evil?”
2 things we need to remember: God gets the blame for a lot of mans evil & God has given man a free will. The more that people are victimized by man’s evil, the more God gets the Blame. Everyone can make a choice…to do evil or to do good. And that is the world we live in.
The Good News though…God will ALWAYS bring GOOD out of evil. He promises that in the verse above! We are delivered from it! And guess what…he uses US (you, me, FiA, family, friends) to help bring that goodness out when tragedy hits. He showed his LOVE & GOODNESS when mankind murdered His innocent Son, and He will do it again even after this horrific act in Las Vegas.
So now…back to the workout. 16 PAX showed up and Pushed themselves like the WONDER WOMEN THEY TRULY ARE!
