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!

AVANELL ~ Rain finally got heavy enough that I had to give up on my walk at 2.85 miles this morning! Oh, well, I'm glad I got that much in before it got too heavy! Maybe I can walk more later if it quits!

all I want to do is make people aware that they are important to me and I value them. If I do that, than I am very pleased.

Avanell, have a great day. Please remember that when you look in the mirror today, you are looking at God's masterpiece, His very best creation. So you can't complain about how you look. You are His very best. The apple of His eye. Made the way He chose. Isn't sad that we let the world tell us that we aren't a masterpiece. And to make matters worst, we believe what beautiful is to them. Isn't time we started believing we really are God's Masterpiece and feeling beautiful?

If we are to truly enjoy your life, NOW is the time. Not tomorrow or next week. Everyday is the perfect time to have a Best Day. So my dear friend, I am wishing you your best day today. Have fun unwrapping today; watching all the beauty around you, discovering another talent you have, learning something new, making a new friend, finding something you misplaced, creating something, being hugged, taking take long, bubble bath, picking wild flowers, enjoying your favorite song. There are so many things we can do to make today our Best Day.

I made my day, my Best Day by visiting YOU.
