My Prayer: God I want to hear Your steps. You have walked not allowing me to see the direction with my own eyes that could take me on my own path. I want to hear the direction of Your movements, that I trust only Your voice Your thoughts, and Your Word. God I ask you of all of this and within my heart as you show me the way, direct my path, and clear the obstructions which may lie ahead of my path. In Jesus name I pray amen.


I did not write any of this which follows. I received it from a web site. The link is below:

God Promises Victory, but Christians Must Fight for Freedom to Live in Victory

"If God is for us then who can stand against us. " When fighting the Christian fight, God enables believers to win victory through every battle. The book of Joshua can be viewed as how to live victorious lives through the strength of God.

The Israelites, when taking possession of Canaan, struck fear into the hearts of their enemies even before the first city fell. They were familiar with what God had done for Israel and all knew that God was with them.

"and (Rahab) said to the men, 'I know that the Lord has given you this land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any courage in anyone because of you, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath.'" (Joshua 2:9-11)

Receiving Christ as Lord gives one the strength to strike fear into the heart of the inhabitants of the "land." God promises victory over the lusts of the flesh and the certain death that sin causes, but not without a fight.

A military campaign is won through strategy. As Joshua and his warriors tore through the land of Canaan, a pattern of military strategy emerges. The Israelites began with Jericho and moved through the highlands and mountainous regions of Canaan. Next, major Egyptian outposts and centers were targeted and destroyed. Efficiency comes through strategy.

In the lives Christians, forming a strategy to defeating enemies is crucial to daily victory. First, hit the areas of sin that are the easiest to destroy. Get off drugs, put off poisonous relationships and begin to serve in the church. Continuous wins occur when Christians begin to take out those enemy outposts. A consistent prayer life and Bible study are both habits that need to be formed and matured. An understanding of a personal role in God's covenant to believers will determine the outcome of any particular battle that comes their way.

MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS:

I know that God has not only given me victory today but He has shown me how the battle will be won. I am only grateful that He would share with me His plans. I praise God and lift Him high above me. God, may your strength ever be present as I seek you through a battle which has already been won. As I know it has been given to me I hold my head high through the devils accusations and torment. I have your power within me as I stated after I fell on my knees. The day after I fell I told myself and others I have God's power inside of me. I will use His power to do all things.

1 Corinthians 1:5
" in Him in every respect you were enriched, in full power and readiness of speech and complete knowledge and illumination."

    Did you know that you can do squats over your toilet, using it for support for those with bad knees, even leg extensions or reach side to side stretching your arms. Just be sure to close the lid. What is so great about this you can do this any time you go into your bathroom at anytime to keep the movement going even in between clean ups. Keep a couple of hand weights in there and do a little strength training!! Need some time for yourself, hide out in your powder room. Do a little stretching and Keep on Moving!! emoticon emoticon

    First things first. You have to decide that you want to lose weight. Then you need to be committed to losing it. And next you have to have Faith in yourself that you can lose weight.

    Not only will you need Faith in yourself to lose the weight, but you are going to need Faith in God to lose weight. With out Faith we are nothing. God never meant for us to be nothing, He meant for us to have Him abide in us and for us to abide in Him as Healthy, Happy and Full of Faith in our selves and Faith in Him.

    As long as we have Faith in God there is nothing we cannot accomplish and the same is true in having Faith in ourselves. Our faith goes way beyond the pulpit, it extends to believing and loving what we cannot see unconditionally. So why is it that we cannot love what our God has created in His own image.

    Our bodies are a creation of our God's. He formed us with His own hands, so why aren't we doing what we need to take better care of ourselves. Don't we need to have Faith in ourselves?

    Let's take inventory of why we want to lose weight in the first place.
    1) Do you want to look better?
    2) Do you want to drop just a few pounds?
    3) Are you tired, out of breathe?
    4) Are you suffering from a major illness?
    5) Are you morbidly obese?
    6) Just can't see your toes anymore?
    7) Are you sleeping all the time?
    8) Tired of feeling over full every time you eat?

    Did I miss anything? Well, I think we need to start believing that we can stop over eating. Have Faith, Pray, God will listen. Use self talk, use motivational tools, provided hear on Spark People. Use motivational videos, keep a journal, write a blog and read your bible daily. Most of all pray before each meal. Don't be afraid to ask God for His help, that is what He is there for. Trust me He wants all His temples healthy too.

    Exercise is a must, be Christ like.... Jesus got in His daily walks. So when you hear some ask are you walking with Jesus, what will your answer be?

    How many hospitals don't have a chapel in it? There are so many missions, churches and other religious deities in this world today that provide healthcare and even weight loss information It would astound you. So yes, faith and weight loss go hand in hand.

    Know that you can do this, you can do all things through Christ. You are a winner, because you a child of God's and God does not make mistakes. You can track your meals, you can walk 10 + minutes daily, you can blog about your day and you can keep a journal and you can have FAITH in You, I have FAITH in YOU and I have Faith in GOD. We can do all things through God!!
