Accepting and loving how He made me!

"We really do become what we believe, and what we repeatedly tell others.
We all need to ask ourselves if we are believing and declaring an identity that is incongruent with that which we want to become. If we are, we need to change what we believe; for only then can our true, positive identity come forth.
In other words, we need to be careful not to believe that we are someone we don’t want to become. We must not live with a mistaken identity. Life is too short to become ...

“In science there is a principle called Occam’s razor. This principle tells us that, amongst competing theories, the simplest is most likely to be true. Eating foods that are whole, natural, and living is simplicity. It is the way nature was designed.”

Who designed natural, I know it was God. I love Him and respect that He allows us to search for our own answers and learn here. He is amazing. We need to keep things simple and not complicate our own journey with so much overload from the world.
And here I am, doing my best to do just that. With His peace He graces me with I shall walk.

" To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make
you something you are not, is a great accomplishment."

"Where is it written that we have to eat something that's not good for us in order to please or appease someone else?"

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it.

You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book.

Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Psalm 139:13-16

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things about MY BODY I CAN NOT CHANGE, the courage to change the things I can FOR THE BETTER, and the wisdom to know the difference AND GET ON WITH MY LIFE. Amen

~+~ Philippians 4:13~+~
" I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."


The Lord said, “I have loved you.” Malachi 1:2
Father, your love never ceases. Never.
Though we spurn you, ignore you, disobey you, you will not change. Our evil cannot diminish your love. Our goodness cannot increase it. Our faith does not earn it anymore than our stupidity jeopardizes it. You don’t love us less if we fail. You don’t love us more if we succeed.
Your love never ceases.

“With one sacrifice he made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” Hebrews 10:14

Underline the word perfect. Note that the word is not better. Not improving. Not on the upswing. God doesn’t improve; he perfects. He doesn’t enhance; he completes . . .

When he sees each of us, he sees one who has been made perfect through the One who is perfect—Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 40:31,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with
wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be
weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

A PRAYER FOR Everyday
Father in heaven, thank You for the dreams and desires You’ve placed within me. I submit those dreams to You and ask that You direct my steps. Search my heart and make my thoughts agreeable to Your Word and to Your plan for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

*The Beatitudes

Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said:
“ Blessed are you poor,
For yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you shall be filled.
Blessed are you who weep now,
For you shall laugh.
Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.
Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets."

I am beginning again renewed.
I love the idea of reinventing, renewing and getting chances to start over.

I am learning so much since I grew up this morning.

See over night I rested in His arms and discovered again that I am loved and lovely. Maybe not in the world of perfection, but in the real world of living life...His world.
Not in the world of pretend and make believe, but in my world with HIM.

OK I am not a nut case, just finally getting what I never knew could be... liking and learning to truly believe that I am worthy of love, worthy of happiness.

Consistency in acceptance of myself, consistency in being active, consistency in choices, and most of all consistency in knowing I will live my life worthy of Him (my God, Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior) I can not do this without Him and I do not want to either.
I mess it up and He directs me and I have to listen, learn and follow His path for me. When I do my will....well I am here aren't I.

Gosh it is fun growing up at such an old age, always adventures and always exciting.

~ Lets Soar High~
I love to soar with wings that are so huge, wings that glide me closer to heaven, closer to Him.
I love the feel He gives me with His power and His strength.
I love that He guides me, teaches me and lifts me so high, oh so close to Him in the beautiful sky.
I love that He has designed me to live a healthy life.
Filled with not only His love, but the love of precious others.
Look, He has taken the time to share you ...with me.
I am honored to be gliding by and soaring up above with all of you and look forward to greater things for you and I...as we soar up above and oh so very high.

I saw this, it really makes me think. Unknown author

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”


A change of feeling, is a change of destiny!

"I'am"

Member Since: 3/18/2010

SparkPoints: 69,975

Fitness Minutes: 36,731

My Goals:
I need a soft loving heart, submitting it to Him.
Only by how I treat others can I obtain His fullness in me

To live healthy, to accept who God made me, to learn to truly love myself and know I am loved as well.
"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall".



My Program:
After losing 75 pounds and having the final 25 left, I have figured out all of this; I KNOW NOTHING!
I am still learning from all walks of life.
I have MS and other conditions that effect my health. I follow plans that promote brain health above all else.

I WILL (not try, or can, either)I WILL live this way and live healthy.
Here again recommitted to doing it God's way; with the foods He gave me to eat and not man made processed foods. Learning to love who I am the way He made me. To live and not die-t. To build activity in my life, including walking, kettlebell, De Dang, Tai Chi, and now rowing too.
To know I need HIM(God) that I can not do this without HIM.

Personal Information:
Been on SP since 02/06/2008, left and came back. Married, children, grandchildren and doggies. Travel a great deal with husband's work. Home address northern Minnesota, even though we travel 8-9 months out of the year. Love the Lord above everything else.

Other Information:
"Where is it written that we have to eat something that's not good for us in order to please or appease someone else?"

Relaxing and enjoying everything so many programs offer.
Taking the good from all and having it work in my life. Love it!!
I will not feed on any negative discord or be around it. I am here to heal, not play games or beat people up for what they choose for themselves, pitting diet choices against each other, dividing what should be embraced and shared, with respect. What we are, is how we act, speak, think, see, and live. I feed myself with peace and love! Not death and dying.

Of course Jesus is at the head of my table :-)

Joshua 24:15 "...choose for yourself this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

I love God and He has to be first or nothing ever will be right.
Jesus is the Lover of my soul!
Jesus is absolutely my Savior in all ways, throughout all of time.

Don't
