We can always use a little more HOPE–for our spiritual health and our physical health. Hope always applies.

Now typically on Wednesday’s I do a weekly mid-week tips email highlighting one tip for Fitness, Faith and Food. But this week, I felt sending you a direct message about HOPE was more important.

Hope is an essential part our lives and our psyche that is critical to our basic function.

It is the lack of hope that causes the trauma, abuse, neglect, fear and depression we see in our world today. This simple four-letter word of ‘hope’ can reverse and prevent catastrophic events in our lives and in those around us.

As Christians, we put our hope in an all-knowing, ever-loving, abundant and caring God. Creator of the Universe who knows and loves you before you were even born.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19

And when we struggle with our weight, our self-image, our commitments, our resolve, our perseverance…it is HOPE that we cling to pull us through. The hope of a new outcome, a new reality, a brighter future, and different path, a new beginning, a beautiful ending…none of it would exist if it weren’t for hope.

>> Final thought: When life gets you down, or you’re disappointed in yourself, or you can’t see a way out…put your hope in Christ Jesus, who has already won the ultimate battle.You can be sure He will not fail you. It is impossible for him to do so. God has your victory already in hand. Trust that He will see it through. Keep the faith.

Place your hope in God’s mighty and capable hands.

“And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.” Psalm 39:7

Your sister in Christ,

P.S. I encourage you today that if you’ve lost hope that you can never achieve a weight loss goal because you’ve tried and failed so many times before, or if you’ve felt like the road to better health is hard and too difficult to navigate–take heart! There is still hope that it can be done. I see it every day. I work with women who achieve it every.single.day.

And you can be a part of it.

Tomorrow is the final day to join me–and other motivated Christian ladies–before we launch into July 1st armed with the tools, resources, accountability and support to achieve new heights in our health, our weight and our vitality.

You will not want to miss out.

Hope lives on to give us a bright and beautiful future!
