Fixer Upper

I know I’m not alone. I know many of you share my infatuation with Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper on HGTV. I am hoarding 14 episodes of Fixer Upper on my DVR and DO NOT ask me to delete them! I love seeing a house with untapped potential being transformed into a beautiful family home. I adore Joanna. I didn’t think it was possible to love her more- until I saw the video of her testimony.

It is such an inspiration to hear her speak (so eloquently) about her faith journey. JoJo (when we become besties she will tell me I can call her that) offers powerful encouragement to LISTEN as God speaks into your life.


Linger on these words from Ephesians 3:20: “Glory be to God, who by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of- infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts or hopes.”  Read it again and let it sink in.

Do you pray BIG prayers and dream BIG dreams?  Are you living your life’s purpose? Have you decided how you will make the world a better place? Have you established your legacy? I hope your answer is Yes- a million times YES!! If not, what is holding you back? Is it that you haven’t identified your life’s purpose? Or is it something else? What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of failure? Or what people might think? Are everyday struggles at home and work interfering with your BIG desires, thoughts and hopes?

Sorry for all of the questions. I don’t want you to feel like you are being interrogated. I get a little excited because I am passionate about unleashing potentential. I am begging you to answer those questions.  Not for me, but for yourself.

You see- I am a “fixer upper” and so are you.  We all have things that need to be touched up, shined up or even broken down and re-built all together. We are all a work in progress, but God’s mighty power is at work within us! I can’t wait to see your untapped potential transformed into something beautiful!

Be a blessing today.
