A New Adventure – opening our North Shore gym

I don’t know about you, but taking risks is not one of my favourite things to do in life. As a child I was always cautious and careful and therefore mostly avoided childhood injuries. I have always been careful in decisions I have made and don’t like to rush into things unless I know they will work and will be ok.

This time a year ago, my hubby & I decided we would take a HUGE risk and MASSIVE step of faith in opening firstly a Christian charity/ministry (HTL Ministries), but also in opening our own non-profit fitness centre, Fit 4 Life under that Christian charity. The idea is sound, people encouraged us to take this step and God provided the initial resources through investments we had.

But now comes the real test….we’re open, we’re seeing people join, but being non-profit we’re reliant on the donations of others. Right now we need to raise a bit of money to reimburse money loaned to get us started as well as making some improvements along the way. It is a daunting task especially for my hubby as he’s the one doing all the “raising”. It’s a great opportunity to trust in God to provide even when we just don’t see how.

It’s a big risk, but as I said to my hubby….”much better doing this risk then sitting at home washing dishes and that’s all there is to my life”. Are we doing things outside our comfort zones?  YUP!!! But I love a verse in the Bible that says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phil 4:13. That verse says it all for me. So, risks aren’t my favourite thing, but here I am in the middle of a HUGE risk and I believe that we can make it work through Christ.

Here’s to taking a risk today….even if it is a teeny tiny one!! 🙂
