It All Starts With What You Believe!

Mark 9:23 NKJV Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.

What we believe about ourselves will either lead us to victory or defeat. Jesus said that all things are possible to the one who believes.

What are you believing for yourself in 2014? Will it be a year of victory or life in the same old rut?

What are you believing for yourself in 2014? Will it be a year of victory or life in the same old rut?

My desire is that God would transform my life as I seek Him and walk according to His principles for good health, spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally! It begins with my belief that God is for me and if He is for me and I apply myself to what He shows me, together with Him, I will win!

Will you join me?

My perspective of my journey to healthy living is changing day by day as I yield to the direction of the Lord and apply healthy living choices to my eating and exercise activities. Each choice that I make may not be seen on the outside right at the moment, but I am being changed from the inside out. God is working on me molding me and making me into the person that He wants me to be. It's as I look into His face through prayer and Bible Study that He changes me. The person that I am is not perfect nor perfectly shaped by the world's standards but as my mother often said beauty is only skin deep, meaning there was more to a person than their outward appearance. Of course she was placing an emphasis on a person's character being more important than their outward appearance as we all have inner flaws.

My faith is in Jesus and it is through Him that I can do all things. I write a devotional blog at Word Press and for those of you who would like to follow it you can find it at aviesplace.wordpress.com.

Two of my favorite scriptures are:
Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing will be impossible."
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

May God empower each of us to live healthily through embracing and applying good choices in the food that we place within our bodies and the movement we choose to exercise them!

Being around children as often as I am has been a true learning experience. I may not be a young woman, however, I am finding out many things from this beautiful little people.

Life is not boring to me, it is not mundane. It is full of wonder, pleasing smells, awesome colors, beautiful creatures, and breathtaking moments. Children know how to enjoy and appreciate life.

This is what I have learn from children: I think there is a secret to enjoying life more that most people overlook. A hidden way to feel so much more full every single day and it hides in its deceptive simplicity. Itís this: Love every single living thing you find and see them all through wondering eyes. Appreciate the details, notice the colors and textures and imagine you are seeing it for the very first time. See things as new.

What wonderful beauty is all around us.

Hi Avanell! Went to bed at 7 pm and when I woke up at 11 pm, my smart phone was logged into a blog from 4/10/14 that's called "God's blog not mine" and my comment in which I declared the gospel of Christ in a nutshell. The scripture given in the blog was 2 Thes 2: 9-12. Do you know this scripture? I've read it, but it isn"t highlighted in my bible. It is now. It's very perfect for me and what I've been going through the last week. God bless you, Avanell.
