PRs Before the Crack of Dawn

This morning at Crossfit, I got my one rep max on High Back Bar Squats (180lbs to be exact!!). I couldn’t be more excited, because when I started Crossfit a year and half ago I had never felt so weak in my entire life. Coming out of a break up I was determined to find my strength again, and to find the Samantha that felt so deeply lost in heartache.

The funny thing is, I found more than that. Ha. I found that GOD is stronger than I gave Him credit for and that He can handle anything I throw at Him. You see, my journey turned into me coming face to face with the sin that lived so deeply in my heart. I faced my fears, insecurities, and idols-lets joust say I spent the majority of the year in tears as God pulled out and continues to pull out the things that crowd my heart. Most of this stuff I didn’t even know was in there… just think Mary Poppins’ bag! It’s so humbling but it’s definitely the safest place I’ve ever been.
