Join Karen on the blog as she shares how God's been using the gym to help her confront past fears and disappointments - reminding her that sometimes we have to face and go through things that took us out in the past before we are able to re-focus and press on towards the goal.

​I joined a Gym for the first time this February - I’d always believed I wasn’t good enough to attend one before! But this year God has been speaking to me about my goals and focus;

WHEN I MET GRACE Can I just tell you - I used to think that I was good, I mean really good. So good that even though I loved Jesus, the cross was a stumbling block to me. That was until God allowed a broken and hurting little boy to enter my home and my heart, to show me just how broken - how far from good - I really was.

It usually gets messy before the new direction emerges. This is the precise time that we must stand firm. When we must keep our eyes on the prize of what God is calling us to - seeing our lives and circumstances as God does.  Be encouraged from the life of Nehemiah that the tide can and will turn in your life with this week's blog...
