Which Mode Are You In? #BeastMode vs. #GraceMode

Did you wake up in #BeastMode as it relates to meeting your diet and fitness goals today? Beast Mode is defined as “Superhuman state of being, in which animal instinct takes over mind and body.” (Definition source from <http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Beast%20Mode> ) I don’t 100% flow with the definition that the Urban Dictionary gives for this but I understand the passion behind this terminology. 

As for me I go into #GRACEMode. Why? Because I realize that I cannot do this in my own strength. I literally have to tap into something BIGGER than myself in order to stretch myself and go beyond my normal capabilities to do something I’ve never done. I had to go into #GraceMode in order to lose the weight that I have lost and the remaining pounds that I still need to lose. I had to go into #GraceMode in order to run the Run Like A Diva 5K in Myrtle Beach. I have to stay in #GraceMode in order to say NO to processed foods and sweets.  I have to go into #GraceMode in order to meet my goal of 10,000-20,000 #Fitbit steps per day. I have to go into #GraceMode in order to stay on my #NoDaysOff #30DayChallenge. I have to go into #GraceMode in order to stay on this Life track of being healthy and fit for life. Not for an event but literally every day of my life. I define #GraceMode as the divine enablement to do what I cannot do in my own strength. The biblical term grace has a much richer definition in the Hebrew and Greek. (See Definitions below)


“A prominent Old Testament word describing God’s grace is chesed. This word speaks of deliverance from enemies, affliction, or adversity. It also denotes enablement, daily guidance, forgiveness, and preservation. 


The New Testament word is Charis. It focuses on the provision of salvation. ” (Definition source from <http://www.allaboutgod.com/definition-of-gods-grace-faq.htm> )


This grace comes from God. I’m not sure how others do it but this is at the core of my testimony & the results that I’ve seen thus far. I pray that you will tap into the grace of God to meet your goals for life. His grace is truly sufficient. 💯


Let’s get it!
