Mind Power

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

“God has…given us…a sound mind.” 2Ti 1:7 NKJV God not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. We have all of these bequests to live a joyous life. It begins in the mind--by believing what we pray for to live the life we want to live. Mind power, use it. Glory to God.

Who Do You Know?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013


“Breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet.” Eze 37:10 NKJV. Scales did not move up or down today, but I must keep on trusting that if I continue with the program that something amazing will happened, just like it happened when God gave life to the dry bones and like it has happened for me so many times before. I know of success in knowing God, because I have witness setbacks before and have come out stronger for it. That’s how I handle setbacks, I am thankful for the experience of knowing God is with me. Without Him, I don’t know what I would do. Who do you know?

The Woman in the Mirror

Monday, January 28, 2013

Today, as I look in the mirror, I see a changed woman and I am thankful. I like this woman that is taking control of my spoon and fork and embarking on a great new way of healthy living. There are easy days and days that are not so easy, but I keep on pushing myself along for the prize—a better quality of life—never focusing on my yesterdays. I am thankful to God for His Word tells us “Approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him.” 2Co 5:21 AMP. This does not mean that I have reach perfection; it means that my God loves and accepts me on my good days and my bad days, so I can do no less. This sets me free, because I know my worth isn’t based on what I do but on who I am in my relationship with Christ. Yes, I like that woman in the mirror and I am excited each day that I see her.

Self-Talk

Sunday, January 27, 2013

“Lord, ‘Increase our faith.’” Lk 17:5 NKJV There are times in which we feel that what we need to do and want to do is just too difficult. Sometimes we feel this way because of our need to self-protect ourselves from being wrong, of getting hurt or of failure.I know that those around me may dwell on the obstacles and difficulties, which can cause me to dwell on my doubts, however I will prevail. I know that words are powerful and everyone is not going to give me positive feedback for my life change, so I will use self-talk to keep me focused and to remove the doubt because I am not alone. Instead of “What will I do?”, I will say, “In God’s strength I can handle it.” Instead of complaining how bad it is, I will say, “Lord, help me to learn from this to better my life. Instead of saying “I see no way out”, I will say “It’s not too hard for God.” Doubt will come but I must remember that God is with me every step of the way. I have decide that today, I can make it and change my life for the better, I know because God is my constant companion. emoticon emoticon

Food Meditation

Saturday, January 26, 2013

One thing I have notice since I began my journey with Spark People is that I don’t think or dream about food as much as I used too. No, I do not think of the 800 calories chocolate shakes with extra chocolate syrup, strawberry cheese cake or the triple chocolate cake, just a few of the foods that I used to crave and would make a special trip to get. Food is not my first thought when it is time to celebrate occasion—there always was a reason to celebrate with food in my world. As a result of my obsession with thoughts of food, I overate and the weight gain soon followed.
It is wonderful and amazing how much time you can spend thinking of food and eating food instead of facing whatever you need to take care of. In the Word of God we are told, “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Phillippians 4:8NLV.When I think on excellent and worthy things, I do not have time to think or dream about food—I think of the grace and mercy of Jesus. No more food meditations, my thoughts are on more admirable and praiseworthy things and these thoughts lead me to reach out and help others.

    Well you did make me think on this one, I use to think about food quite a bit, and it seems I was always snacking. I no longer do this. I have so many more worthwhile things to do, and to think about. Thank you. emoticon

    I agree. My prayer has been that the Bread of Life will fill me, and that the Living Water will quench my thirst. With all the tools, information and encouragement from SparkPeople, I find I still need help from the Real Power source. emoticon
