Women and Gyms

Women and Gyms. Broadly, that was my call. I didn't ask for it, much like I didn't request to be living where I currently dwell. But, HE gave it to me. It started 3 years ago in Seminary. Daydreaming in my class (oops, did I say during class, I meant inbetween classes..yeah, that's it) of how I can take a Western concept to the world. He kept pestering me. He kept giving me passion and drive to do bring the Message to these groups: women and gyms. A subculture. A "subculture" you ask? Yes, here, a subculture.

Fastforward to now. Still women and gyms. Lord, you know where I am, right?!?! Confirmation. Obedience. Focus. Two days ago I met with a woman. This isn't supposed to happen, just ask all the "experts". She poured out her heart to me. All of it. Deep stuff. She gave me the garbage. She was worn out, totally wiped. I paused.....

"You need to know something, and never forget this....God loves you more than you could ever imagine."

We sat in silence.

He gave it to me. He did this.

Grant, that's awesome. Praise God who does not care what you should not be able to do in that culture. I am praying for you tonight.
