My name is Daryl. I really have no reason to give you for reading this blog. What I will do is tell you why I am starting this. I am a fitness trainer / strength coach and I started a blog about two years ago. It started as an exercise blog where I posted workouts. It began to change into less of a workout blog and more of a “how I live my life” blog. I state there, and I will restate here, that I am not a guru. I do not have any answers to life. I do however know that I am going through life with the same problems that many of you might have. What I share here is the ways I am trying to look at life and deal with the ups and downs. I am not high and mighty. I am not holier than thou art. I am just a human being that is determined to not let the bad things, the evil things, the common trials and tribulations control my life. If you have it all down then this isn’t for you. If you are on a journey to be the best person you can ever be then I hope by reading this you will get closer.
Some of the things I will talk about might get you mad. Either mad at the situation or mad at how I choose to get through them. You may be offended about my beliefs and values. If so I will not apologize but I will say it is your choice to continue reading. I want this to be for everybody, because I feel we can all learn from one another, but I understand that you are not me. God gave us all free choice.
So let’s get to the title of this blog. We Are More Than Conquerors. If you know me a little from my old blog, or in real life, you know that I love to think that we are all warriors. I was never military and never will put myself on that level. Those men and women are real warriors and deserve to be thanked everyday for protecting our freedom. God bless the armed forces. I do believe that we need that kind of mentality to conquer life. We all fight wars in one way or another. It can be the battle of getting out of bed. The battle of choosing the healthy breakfast. The battle of pursuing your dream. The battle of getting along with your family. These are all battles that many of us go through. They take training and a plan.
They require something to go with the training and a plan. They require a belief. This takes me to the even deeper meaning of the title of this blog. “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” Romans 8:37
I believe with all of my heart that God has His hands in all of this. The struggles we have are for a reason. After all we can not change if we are not challenged. God gives us the tools we need to get stronger and to conquer all life throws at us. But with Him we do more than conquer. We can inspire and motivate others to conquer. Nothing can stop us because nothing can separate us from God’s love. Nothing can separate us from Jesus Christ. Just BELIEVE.
So here it is. This is the start of a new journey. A journey filled with motivation. A journey filled with inspiration. A journey I hope you will take with me for it is a journey lead by faith in Jesus Christ.
I pray the Lord may touch your hearts as He has touched mine.
Blessed to be on this journey with you. Proud of you for opening your heart and life to Christ. Judges 18:6
The priest answered them, “Go in peace. Your journey has the LORD’s approval.”
