Goal for May

Saturday, April 24, 2010

I am determined to turn around and really get back with the program!!!

In January I weighted 5.9 pounds less than now and it makes me so sick...I am sick enough to really turn around. Sick of the sin of indulging and allowing Satan to be victorious.

I am striving to excercise more and leave the junk alone. God willing I will see a loss of 6 pounds in May!!

    I love the tulips, can relate to the sin.

I have recently focused on 3 healthy meals a day, and it's working. Focus on the GOOD, IN, like 3 healthy meals, 6 veggies, 3 fruits, 12 waters, instead of focusing on the bad, is working for me.

    Those flowers are absolutely beautiful!! emoticon for sharing with us!!!
"I am striving to excercise more and leave the junk alone." Great motto for all of us to remember!!! I haven't had junk in quite a while due to health issues, but I do overindulge in fruit occasionally...which is a no no for me.

This poem is from a dear sister on another team with permission:

I have not finished this poem but as I type it out,the Lord will help,surely. I thought of Jesus asking God three times to remove the cup He was about to suffer with at Calvary. If you were there,what would your conversation be? He did spend every opportunity He had in solitude of prayer.Alone as He was,He did find out God's will.

Just One Moment With Jesus

Lord Jesus,there You are in the garden alone.
Gethsemane,blood sweating for our sins to atone.

You knell to pray--
Peter,James and John sleep,
Not listening to Your plea, "be awake to stay."

Death was sure to come;Did they care?
If it were me? Just one moment,Jesus,
To give You comfort and worship there.

Off will You go to Calvary--
Soon to betrayed but You already know the soldiers will kill and bury.

Will anyone care for the Lamb of God
These final hours?
You never quit on anyone,yet they did,the mob.

But,You will prove to the world soon that,
Victory over the grave and redemption will be fact.

Thank You,Lord,for Your sacrifice!
You did live again!Alleluia!And,soon we will have more then moments with You!
And,we sing this song of praise and grace,oh,how nice!

If you were in the garden that night,what you you say to Jesus? Just that we love Him would be enough.
I Peter 1:3"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."

Thank you Sally!! -(Spark Team A New Song Of Praise Poets)

    Elaine, very true & so appropriate for this week. So great a cost He gave. If they say our country's freedom isn't free; how much more the cost our salvation. Praise Him!!

    This is such a love inspired blog straight from heaven itself through Mr. Holy spirit to encourage us with His love and life giving power from on high from His resurrection. Have a full resurrection day. Where would we be without the resurrected and crusified and obedient and loving Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. We would all be condemned in hell for all eternity because of the trickery and deception and lies of the devil. Thank you so much for this beautiful poem and blog. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Its been around before - but, for the next 8 months we should keep this at the top of the song charts!!
And lets not forget the words when we step forward to the ballot box!

Amazing how this was put together.

This will get your patriotic heart going good.

This is WORTH your time. Turn speakers on . . . Really worth seeing.

I don't know how they did it...but it's fantastic!

Great song!

If you want to lose weight and live healthier, don't be discouraged by past dieting failures or put your goal off until tomorrow. Instead, simply focus on doing one thing today toward bettering yourself.

Is it OK to indulge in your favorite junk food once in a while when you're dieting? How do you avoid gaining the weight back? Will you have to count calories for the rest of your life?

I am not saying this for an excuse to stumble but to excuse yourself...forgiveness and moving on as in 'one day at a time'.

In other words, do not let it get you down!!

To this I will add _ If you fall down 7 times, get up 8!!

One of my favorite scriptures that has helped me through difficult times _
Matthew 6:31-34
"Therefore, be not anxious saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed?
For After all these things do the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
Be, therefore, not anxious about tomorrow; for tomorrow will be anxious for the things of itself. Sufficent unto the day is its own evil."

    Amen. One day at a time is all we can do. Praise the Lord that He gives us a new day every 24 hours in which we can do the best we can.

    Elaine, personally, I think it depends on our personalities.
I'm sure this will work for you. I seem to be an all or nothing person.
Keep going....and looking to the Lord.
