2018 is all about Gather....Gathering together...Gathering up...
Gather, Gather, Gather
One day I was wandering around a huge Decor store and I saw this large piece. Immediately I grabbed it I was taking that baby HOME! Then I realized my poor family has no clue what I want for Christmas....well I want this! So I took photos (thanks iphone) and sent... Deeply relieved, I do believe they found a solution to the large problem of "what to get Mom."
I immediately KNEW that I knew...this would be the word and direction for 2018...It was a deeply inspired "God-moment"...as I call the spiritual winds that blow across my path. My inner spirit is the radar and when things resonate and cross it they simply leave a PING...I stop and look deeply at them. It's how Find Your Food originated. A vision and direction came into my life! I followed it.
Now it's not a NEW word, I've actually been gathering for a while now. It's not new nonetheless. Here is where people often miss it, when they are familiar with a word or direction they easily keep moving on looking for the next thing... For me the message is clear, "focus more intentionally here"
Gather: To bring together in one group, collection or place
I know to build upon with more intention what I've already been doing. Knowing there is even more purpose in this action to be revealed.
Since then, I've seen the word in multiple places...In my favorite speaker I've stumbled upon an entire message full of "gather" and in a book I just purchased I am told "gather" is a main topic.
It's like I just caught up with my future that's been carefully laid out ahead of time...As I realize THAT...my faith simply stirs with comfort.
WHO AM I SEEKING TO GATHER?
Over 3 years ago I changed my food and it's changed my entire life. I went from controlling carbs and sugars that were totally in control. I was obese, full of shame and disengaged with my life! As the story goes, I linked arms with my cousin and we dieted together. I complied for her, not myself. That aspect of community literally got me to my weight loss goal of over 80lbs l founded Find Your Food in Jan 2016 because people wanted my help. With coaching and community I've seen people really turn their lives around. There is HOPE and HELP and small groups and content to help you make the journey. SO I gather those people together...Those in need of help and those who have it to give!
