I have been on Sparks since the beginning of 2008, and I am so consumed with all the information.
My goal is to be healthy and share the Good New of Christ in my daily life struggles. I have found that so many people are hurting including myself for one reason or another you are not in the best of health, your light (light for Christ) is dim. We can't remain in darkness and the only way out is through Jesus Christ.

I have been on Sparks since the beginning of 2008, and I am so consumed with all the information.
My goal is to be healthy and share the Good New of Christ in my daily life struggles. I have found that so many people are hurting including myself for one reason or another you are not in the best of health, your light (light for Christ) is dim. We can't remain in darkness and the only way out is through Jesus Christ.
When I log in my calories and fitness readings, I find that I am more accountable.
Because I come from of family of givers, I found that it was hard ot take care of myself. I was always putting the needs of other before myself until I had a revelation from the Lord. He loves me, so why shouldn't I love me. Not to be self-centerd, but to see my body as.
the temple of Christ
As I go about this next phase of my life, I would like to be able to play with my grandchildren without being tired and exhausted. I would like to dance in the Spirit without getting winded and tired. With taking care of this temple, I know I can be in good health as my soul prospers.

We must look inside ourselves to free ourselves. The issue of all growth is to make a change for the better and then to have an unrelenting willingness to shoulder the responsibility this entails (The Big Book,p.115).

Each day is an opportunity for personal growth. Self-esteem grows as we do in recovery. Without dreams and goals, there is nothing keep use moving forward. Out Higher Power accompanies us in our own personal journey each step of the way.

I am empowered to succeed because I realize there is power in powerlessness.

I hope you have a Sparktacular Week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use. A very dear SparkFriend this week posted on our Recovering Alcoholics team thread, Sobriety Blessings, this incredible reflection, "Sobriety has given me the courage to do the right thing in spire of my fear."

In my blog, Strength Training Builds More Than Muscle, I focused on having the courage to change our lifestyle and to reach our goals, our heart's desires.

Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.

Blessings today and always! emoticon

Courage is fear that has said its prayers!

I completed Steps Four and Five this week with my sponsor. I am a grateful recovering alcoholic.This has been a soul searching and incredibly empowering week for me. I just want to share something from my AA meeting today:

" Higher Power take my will and my life. Guide me in my recovery.
Show me how to live. "

One incredible new team member of Recovering Alcoholics reminded me how important it is to revisit Step One each and every day. I do this and also revisit daily Steps Two and Three also. The inspirational thought I have shared speaks to Step Three:

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of
God as we understood Him.

The serenity which floods my soul is indescribable, but I know you have experienced this and can share in the joy of living sober!

Blessings and a BIG emoticon

I love your words. We are the temple of the Lord. I've been working on memorizing Romans 12:1 in the NLT "And so dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice - the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him." emoticon
