Strength and Praise

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Psalm 71:a6 I will go in the strength of the LORD GOD; I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

Thank you Lord for giving me strength each. Without you I know my efforts to live healthy and lose weight would fail. Feed my soul. Feed my spirit. When my soul becomes dry and thirty, quench my thirst with your living water. You are my righteous Lord in whom I will proclaim. Thank you for walking with me each day. Help me not to forget your wonderful blessings in my life. Thank you for helping me to improve everyday. Thank you for being with me when I am in pain or sick. You are my comfort! You are my word! You are my salvation! You are my hope! You are my God! Praise Your Glorious Name! In Jesus Name! Amen!

    from one of my favorite prayers: May God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.

Hope

Friday, March 09, 2012

Romans 15:4 For whatoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

I love this scripture! I reminds me of how much God's Word has edified me and brought me much comfort. He speaks to me through His Word. He has helped me cope with my health problems and renewed my strength in troubled depressing times. As I spent more and more intimate time with my Lord in prayer and studying His Word; my loneliness began to melt away. Happiness and the joy of the Lord filled me up. Not only did I learn to deal with my situation, I also gain much patience. The Lord put me back on my path. Most of all He gave me great comfort. I feel showered with God's love everyday. If you are out there and you are troubled by you weight, health, family problems, loneliness, depression, or something else just simply turn it over to the Lord! Turn to His Word! Pray! Our hope is in Christ Jesus!

God Is Our Flashlight

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

Thought For The Week: Some days we feel blue and even hopeless. We donít even want to get out of bed to get started with our day. We are tempted to skimp on our meals or miss them altogether. Maybe we think we donít have time or it is the same old boring food. All of this is from the father of lies. He who puts forth darkness to the world. Donít listen to his whispers. Satan is the accuser. He rallies in our failures and sins. He wants to keep us in the dark moving on the wrong paths. Remember God is our flashlight. Ask the Lord to help us to see our mistakes and sins so we will stay on the right path to eating right and exercising. Depend on Him to flood our way with His Holy Light.

Do's and Don't

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Romans 7:18-19

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do.

I find this passage to be a powerful message. We are at war with the flesh. It is our flesh that beckons us to do the things that we know we shouldn't do. It is the flesh that persuades us not to do the things we should do. Apostle Paul is telling us how he struggled with the flesh, as do we.

Romans 7: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

It is my flesh that I listened to in the past and became over-weight. It is my flesh I listened to broke down my healthy body. I have confessed this to the Lord and He has forgiven me. The slate is wiped clean. My God has established my steps. I can have victory over my flesh.

Psalm 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

Lord Jesus,

Thank you for my salvation! I love you! Thank you for your mercy and patience! Thank you for my forgiveness! Thank you for establishing my goings! You have helped me to get on the correct path with my health and my weight. I still struggle with my flesh everyday. You give me strength to do the things I should do (tracking my food, sticking to it, exercising when I don't want to, and feeling better for all these things. I am thankful for all You do for me. I praise you! Thank you for helping me to succeed in losing weight and inches. Thank you for helping me to keep my flesh in subjection. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen!
