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!

Hi Avanell, thanks for commenting on my Guarding Thoughts and Mouth blog.. emoticon ... there are so many days when I'd wish that I grew up like the Copeland's children.... to have that training early... maybe my life would've gone differently. But I can only look forward and keep trying to learn more and more now as I go. I have to believe that God will still get me to the place He has for me! emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Keep those dreams and wishes close to your heart. Especially on this wishful Wednesday. After all, wishes can fuel your motivation and determination. Who knows, one of your wishes may soon become a reality!

Wishing you a Wednesday that is wonderful!

You are so right...Life is always about the One Who was and is and will always, always be!! Not us! Yet, we are given the privilege to glorify Him daily! HalleluJAH

WooHoo, it's Tuesday! How thankful I am for all the truly wonderful Spark friends, like YOU! Living out here in a small-town, rural area, people are not quick to befriend anyone. So your friendship means a lot to me.

True friendship opens our hearts and gives us the courage to show what we keep hidden from the rest of the world.
