"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions." -- Stephen Covey

In the power of God, it is time to give up old habits that have lead me down a path of destruction. Every day, every moment is a new opportunity to follow God in healthy living!

A fellow pastor's wife has a motto: Giving up is not an option. I like that. I can't give up when I've come so far!

I was made for more: "God, I recognize I am made for more than the vicious cycle of being ruled by food. I need to eat to live, not live to eat. So, I keep asking for Your wisdom ...

I was made for more: "God, I recognize I am made for more than the vicious cycle of being ruled by food. I need to eat to live, not live to eat. So, I keep asking for Your wisdom to know what to eat and Your indwelling power to walk away from things that are not beneficial to me." Lysa TerKeurst, "Made to Crave"

I was made to worship God. All I do should be to give glory to Him.

Live life with no regrets. If you do, you'll spend more time thinking about what you should have done rather than what you can do. Instead, bloom where you're planted! There is no reason you cannot reach your goals!

These are not my words, (and if the author of them happens upon my SparkPage I'd love to credit you!), but they are so inspiring to me I wanted to post them here. It's another way to think about rainbows: "It reminds me of God's promise not to flood the earth again. I'm thinking maybe He's wanted to a time or two since Noah.....but He always keeps His Word.
So, I'm using this little rainbow as a model for my prayer as I start this weight loss journey (again) and asked God for the strength not to "flood" my body w/ stuff that's not good for me.
I'll want to from time to time......but I'll try to remember how my Father keeps His promises and draw from that strength"
