I feel so passionate about the saying "I AM ENOUGH" but what do those words really mean? I have been praying over the right words the past few months and I wanted to share my thoughts with each of you.
At TransFit we inspire women to transform not only their physical bodies, but their entire lives. Yes, physical transformation is the before and after photos of women losing 50 pounds, and the tears of joy when jeans now fit. We realize that good nutrition and proper exercise lead to weight loss; however, losing weight is not what life is all about. Losing weight or getting to a “number” on the scale doesn’t lead to true happiness. Real transformation has little to do with our body shape and has everything to do with the truths we are putting deep in our hearts and minds. When these truths permeate through our veins we have a true-life change, and enjoy the process of transformation daily. How the truths seep into your veins is not by some physical activity that you do, or a kind word you said. Are you getting this, ladies? The process of transformation is something He does in you- over time. 2 Corinthians 12:9 reminds us, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me". He grants us grace when He formed us specifically in the palm of His mighty hand. He is the one who will transform you from the inside out.
I started this business eight years ago because my mind was leading me in all the wrong directions and I was in a pit of depression and despair. However, it was God who transformed my life by instilling real truths about my body because He loves me- why? Because he made me. Not because I am “a number on a scale” or because I have done all the right things, (because believe me growing up in New Orleans that would have been impossible). He made me enough just the way I am – today. Right now, this hour, this minute. So remind yourself of that truth. YOU ARE ENOUGH. A scale or a pair of jeans doesn’t need to control you and ruin your day. You were put on this earth to love, not to beat your self up over a size or number. Jesus reminds us over and over in his word to “love our neighbor as ourselves”. And how do we do this- really?
We start by seeking self-respect, security, and significance. We start to know Him, spend time with Him, and love Him to be able to truly love ourselves. So stop right now telling yourself: “I’m too fat, I’m too old, I’m too tired, or I’m too flawed”…. Silence that inner voice who says you can’t, you won’t or you aren’t…because yes you are imperfect; we all are, but YOU ARE ENOUGH. Because of Him, you are worthy, you are loved, you are strong enough to get though whatever comes in your life journey.
So my challenge to you is this… start treating yourself with love, self-respect, and significance.
You were fearfully and wonderfully made and specifically designed for an amazing life purpose. You are loved and you are enough.
Today is the day to take action on your goals, your life, your health, and your body. Treat the temple you have been given with utmost care and respect. Love and honor yourself by taking care of yourself. Remind yourself hourly who you really are:
You are enough and you are loved by a mighty and powerful King.

2 Corinthians 3:18- "And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit."
