What does it mean to possess an excellent spirit? I was exposed to this question many years ago when I was listening to a great sermon in church. I have been a Fitness Professional for ten years and find that protecting your confidence and developing a strong foundation of faith is the key to having an excellent spirit. For me, it means believing in God and living a life that displays a passionate trust in God. Possessing an excellent spirit happens when your faith is strong and unflinching like Daniel in the Bible. We all have our stories and life experiences that form our character and feed the spirit. God gives us discernment to recognize and resist every temptation to fear and not trust. “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Daniel 6:3). Daniel shows us that the spirit excelled in him. His trust and priority was in the spiritual, in that which was not seen or physical; complete faith. I am so inspired by such faith.
I want to empower you to live fully by embracing and celebrating who you were created to be. I want to empathize with your struggles, motivate you to fulfill your dreams, challenge you in your thoughts, evoke laughter in your spirit and show you the Love of God.
