Happy Labor Day Weekend, ever'body!!!
In one of my devotional studies this year, God revealed to me that our true "labor" should be laboring to enter into His rest. The rest that He provided through the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. And did you know that before Jesus went to the Cross, He bequeathed to you and I who follow and believe Him, HIS Shalom?
Shalom in Hebrew is not just a greeting like Ciao, or Aloha...its meaning goes deeper.
It means Welfare/Well-being, Health, Prosperity, and yes, Peace!
So He said, in effect, I am leaving you all of THAT. That is your inheritance upon my death...so do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid!
(Hebrews 4:11, John 14:27)
So maybe this holiday weekend, I invite you to take a moment or 10 and reflect on that...we can only receive an inheritance when someone passes away. God set up a very powerful inheritance for us which includes well-being, health, prosperity and peace---Jesus' own Shalom! And Jesus voluntarily died for us to receive it.
He loves you THAT MUCH. Can you receive that today?
Beloved, I pray that you would "labor unto that rest" this weekend...resting in your heart, mind, and sure, even your body if you like!

It's not just a workout. You know that. It's about God's power at work within us. and He is POWERFUL!
(plus, the more people we have in class, the higher the energy and good vibes! And it is insurance that we will be able to continue having these classes together!)

We had a beautiful practice with 17 of us (plus me), and it was full of JOY, STRENGTH, SWEAT, and WORSHIP!!!
I'm telling you, I hope that all I ever do shows people JESUS. And I saw His Light reflected in smiles all around me...WHAT A BLESSING!!!!
Thank you to everyone who came out and practiced as well as everyone who has prayed in advance for this event--
It was a beautiful day to meet with our peers in the yoga world as well, and just have a good time taking care of our temples and meeting with friends!
