Today Is A New Day!

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Isaiah 43:18 "Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old,"

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Yesterday's gone and with it go the disappointment of the mistakes that were made. Every day is a new opportunity for success.

Yesterday started out good with a -2 pound register on the scales, but being off schedule by being away from home brought some disappointments in my ability to make positive food choices. Eating out always presents challenges and the temptations of culinary delicacies sometimes gets the best of me! Thank God it wasn't too bad though! Nevertheless, today is a new day and another opportunity to make healthy food choices. I will not allow the defeat of yesterday to carry over into today.

So, I am determined to press forward into today with a positive attitude about success. This is a good day to win the battle and by the grace of God, I will!

I will forget about yesterday and embrace the possibilities of today. It's possible to succeed because I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He is the greater one living inside of me and He directs my steps. I am a child of the King, empowered by His Spirit who lives within me! This is a great day!

To God be the glory, great things He has done!

    You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
Each day is a fresh start and with the Lord walking with you in this journey and the support of fellow believers cheering you on, you can and will reach your goals.
May the month of March see many goals completed and wonderful testimonies that you can share with the group of what God has done in your life as you have committed this area of getting healthy to Him.
He is so faithful to guide you and give to you the encouragement and strength you may need to press forward.

Well Able!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Numbers 13:30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, "Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it."

As believers in Christ Jesus, we are "well able" to overcome any obstacle that is placed before us through the power of the Holy Spirit that lives within us. Do you really believe? Jesus often said, "be it unto you according to your faith". If we see the excess pounds on our bodies as the mountain before us and believe that what Jesus says is true, we can speak to the mountain and it will be gone! (Mark 11:23) What's holding us back from being the successful people that God has created us to be? Sometimes it's fear of failure; or the comfort that we find in our friendships with food; or lack of self-discipline. All of these are simply "giants" in our land of success. God told the Israelites in Deuteronomy 9:1-3 that they knew about the giants in their Promised Land and how big they were, but that He was going before them to cause them to be successful in overcoming the giants. It's the same with us today, friends, God has gone before us into this day to cause us to be successful. Now, go forth, in the power of His Spirit, to victory!
