The year 2020 was an exceptional year. There is no doubt that it brought about new and different things. Many of us would say that the “new” things were not good things. They were hard, and scary and even ugly at times. We don't have to tell you about the challenges and changes that have faced our nation, our families, our communities and ourselves. We have ALL had to shift and adjust repeatedly over the course of this year.
I recently heard a commentary on this verse and the speaker pointed out that it says “I am making a way in the wilderness.” Did you catch that...in the wilderness. The way is in the wilderness, in the wasteland. God is in the business of making things new. He is the creator, the designer, the way maker and he promises to do a new thing in us. This is such a powerful promise for us today, in these circumstances. We might feel like we are in a wasteland, that things are falling apart around us, but don’t delay- turn your eyes to Jesus and ask him to show you the new things he is doing. Allow him to do something new in or around you.
This year has allowed us (at Faith Fueled Fitness) to readjust, recalibrate and devote A LOT of time to a new and exciting program. At the start of 2020 we were just getting the hang of our new partnership and working out of our small studio location in Meridian, Idaho. When the stay-at-home orders began, we stepped away from the physical location and did our best to offer classes and coaching from the virtual format. We all had kids (and often spouses) working from home and it was a huge blessing to stay connected and active during the first several months of the pandemic. As the months continued on, we identified several pieces that we felt led to further develop and make more easily accessible in our new digital environment. So that is what we have been doing!
Over the last year, we have spent countless hours developing content that is deeply meaningful to us, with the intent of offering a well rounded and impactful program to our Faith Fueled Community. We have been writing and recording our personal perspectives on Faith, Food, Fitness, Rest and Gratitude AND we're just about ready to share it with you! We have put together six weeks of content to educate and equip you as well as 20 new and improved full length workouts. We can't wait to release this program in the next month and offer an all inclusive Faith Fueled Living Program!
As we get closer to the release date, be on the lookout for updates. We'll even share bits and pieces of our content right here on our blog and social media pages!
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”. Isaiah 43:19 NIV
