Before and After….

We look upon those two words sometimes as the past and the present. The once was, now isn’t or the bad and now the good. BUT before and after can represent a lot of things BUT holding true to those two words there is usually some TRANSFORMATION.
Transformation by webster means: To change the form or outward appearance of, to change the condition, nature of function of , to CHANGE. IT relates to something NEW.
Transformation by God’s word : “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let GOD transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. THEN you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2
Have you ever had a before and after moment in your life? Many hearts have been broken with before and after moments. Many hearts have REJOICED in before and after moments.
We are all DOING LIFE… Sometimes when you ask people how they are, their simple response is “oh, i’m doing life”.
We have been given one life, one breath, one opportunity to CHOOSE our destination. Physically, emotionally, and eternally. Each day is a new opportunity to TRANSFORM anything we aren’t happy about.
I choice this picture to share with you today simple because it was a “FUNNY” on YOGA. Yoga is transformational. Not in some weird way but in the way that you care for yourself. Yoga is the exercise of the mind, body and the spirit.
Over the weekend I’ve run into many who have said, “Oh kathy I want to come to yoga but I don’t think I can do that.” I hope that in talking to many of you that the one thing you hear me say is that YOGA isn’t about DOING something . It’s NOT about a headstand, a crow pose, a backbend. Can it involve those poses …. of course but more than that it’s about transformation. Learning to be still, to rest in the LORD, to find the things in your body that you can do. SIMPLE steps…
I use YOGA as a means of transformation in my own life. IT helps me to stay healthy, to worship GOD on my mat every day and to learn to be quiet and STILL. Something that is hard for me.
IF you haven’t tried YOGA yet … your still on the fence. Please give me a call, let’s talk . Let’s transform together.
