Conquering Fear

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Facing our fears is always easier than living with helplessness. The truth is, if we tell ourselves often enough that we cannot lose weight or that we cannot exercise a little each day to achieve our goals than we will be unable to do it—even though we have the talent, time, resources, strategy, and friends to accomplish it. When we say we can, we do. Saying we believe in ourselves and the God who lives within us may not guarantee our success, but saying we don’t will guarantee our failure. So today we will face our fears head on, and watch them shrink. “When I am afraid, I will trust in you.” Ps 56:3 NIV

A Jar of Coins

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

At my water aerobics class, one of the class members asked me if I was the one that left a jar of coins in the shower with a note that said, “share this with someone who needs it”. I told her that I was not the one but that I was so happy that she thought that it was me. She told me that she added some more money to the jar and took the jar of coins with the note to a local church that has a record of helping others in need. emoticon I thanked her for the compliment and I thanked God for that person that left the jar of coins to remind us that we are to be a blessing to others. Who would have thought that a jar of coins could bless so many people? emoticonAs we take steps to a better quality of life without a focus on unhealthy eating, it is important that we continually pray for God to guide our actions and show us ways to serve others. emoticon When we open ourselves to the will of God, we will be surprised at the wonderful things we can do. ”In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven”(HCSB) Mathew 5:16. emoticon


Today's Struggles

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Taking one day at a time, it is important to remember that we have a friend who is greater than anyone who might oppose us or wish to make us unhappy. Jesus Christ became victor over everything this world could throw at Him; even death itself. If we will give Him control of our hearts, He will be true to us and grant us victory in the struggles we face. In our struggles of today, think of our friend and the victory that He has already won for us. Mathew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” emoticon

No More Excuses

Monday, January 07, 2013

How do we take back the power to live a better life? Every day we wake up, we need to celebrate that we are alive and decide that today we will be in control of our lives, our eating and our fitness. Step one, eat a good healthy breakfast. Step two, move our body whether it is 5 minutes or 100 minutes, just move it. Step three, tell ourselves that we are doing this for me. Step four, be honest and track everything, yes everything. We have the power, no more excuses, take back the power. Galations 5:1a “We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong.”(NCV)

“Don’t let the seeds keep you from enjoying the watermelon”(Lillie in the movie Made for Each Other) Friends, we are on a journey to have a better quality of life by eating healthier and exercising. There will be days that we will want to eat over our calorie limit. There will be days that we will not want to exercise. These are seeds that we have to spit out. So today, spit out the seeds and do what you need to do to have a better life. Spit the seeds out. ‘The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart’ (Lk 6:45 NIV).

    Thanks for the humorous take . I've been debating with that seed of exercise for about 15 now! Guess it is time to start spitting! Thank for the push!
