The hardest part about being willing to open up your heart and trust someone when you have been hurt so badly by someone else is realizing that you may get hurt again. That feelings hurt, that loving someone isn't always easy, and that God is your greatest ally in this war of guarding yet opening your heart.

Psalm 139 Meditation

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalms 139:23-24 NKJV)

I have been meditating on this verse this morning and am thinking about how serious these verses are. If I ask God to search me he will and he will point out everything that he needs to change in my life. I have been crying this out to the Lord today asking him to show me what needs changed. Where have I become stagnate? Show me, change me, and lead me to were I need to be my blessed Savior!

Sometimes, I really struggle with loneliness, especially this time of year with Valentine's Day being tomorrow. It has been in one of those kind of weeks. Lots of prayer and quiet wondering on my part. It is nice to know that even though I feel lonely at times. I am never truly alone. My God sticks closer to me than a brother and I always have Him to comfort me. I want to encourage you. If you are feeling lonely this Valentine's day season turn to pursuing a deeper more intimate walk with the Savior. Wear out the carpet with your knees, pace a hole in the floor and wear out the binding in your bible. Get real with God. It is never a waste to spend time in the word or in prayer. #pondering #prayer #Christian #walk #God #heart #singleness

Smoothie Recipe

Here is a protein shake I make as a recovery drink when I am done working out. It's it's quite tasty and doesn't have any soy or whey protein.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Smoothie

2 Tbsp. Of Peanut Butter
1 cup of Almond Milk
1 tsp of Cocoa
2 ripe frozen Bananas
2 tsp. of Honey

Blend it up all of the above ingredients after letting the bananas get slightly soft. 

Then add a half cup of Ice and then slowly add another half a cup of ice if it's not thick enough for you. 

There you go. A super healthy recovery drink. 

The peanut butter and almond milk give you the protein. The cocoa raises your Seratonin levels. The honey gives you a great energy burst and doesn't cause your sugar levels to spike and the ice helps rehydrate you.
