It All Starts With What You Believe!

Mark 9:23 NKJV Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.

What we believe about ourselves will either lead us to victory or defeat. Jesus said that all things are possible to the one who believes.

What are you believing for yourself in 2014? Will it be a year of victory or life in the same old rut?

What are you believing for yourself in 2014? Will it be a year of victory or life in the same old rut?

My desire is that God would transform my life as I seek Him and walk according to His principles for good health, spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally! It begins with my belief that God is for me and if He is for me and I apply myself to what He shows me, together with Him, I will win!

Will you join me?

My perspective of my journey to healthy living is changing day by day as I yield to the direction of the Lord and apply healthy living choices to my eating and exercise activities. Each choice that I make may not be seen on the outside right at the moment, but I am being changed from the inside out. God is working on me molding me and making me into the person that He wants me to be. It's as I look into His face through prayer and Bible Study that He changes me. The person that I am is not perfect nor perfectly shaped by the world's standards but as my mother often said beauty is only skin deep, meaning there was more to a person than their outward appearance. Of course she was placing an emphasis on a person's character being more important than their outward appearance as we all have inner flaws.

My faith is in Jesus and it is through Him that I can do all things. I write a devotional blog at Word Press and for those of you who would like to follow it you can find it at aviesplace.wordpress.com.

Two of my favorite scriptures are:
Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing will be impossible."
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

May God empower each of us to live healthily through embracing and applying good choices in the food that we place within our bodies and the movement we choose to exercise them!

P.S. I'm sorry about your troubles with Sparkmails.. yes, I've had those problems too. It's either been the spam folder issue OR my notifications in Spark had turned off! Glad you got that resolved. AND yes! My cake was both beautiful and delicious! Unfortunately, I gained a few pounds back during my birthday celebrations (this year, everybody was taking me out!) but I am now back on program! emoticon

Hi Avanell, thank you so much for the goodie note... I am glad you received from that word. I did also! The Lord has been working in me and, as I've been more receptive, He's showing me more. It's taken me a while but I know I'm starting to move back into position again. :) I pray that little Abby is feeling better... know that I am keeping your baby in my prayers and earnestly praying on her behalf, and I am speaking life and health over her, just as I do for you and Gerald! Love, Karen emoticon emoticon emoticon
