SparkCoach Challenge

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

My challenge for today is to post in one sentence how I'm feeling today:

I'm feeling a little discouraged and defeated today, struggling to get back on track after the holidays.

    I am feeling great. Spent the best day yet with our daughter and son-in-law. Hiking mount Lemon, eating at a Polish restaurant, buy plants and working on beautifying their yard.

Eating Intuitively

Thursday, January 02, 2014

The SparkCoach challenge for today is to try to eat intuitively. In other words, only eat when I feel hunger, stop when I feel comfortably full, and pay attention to what is triggering me to want to eat (the clock, the food & snacks that I see around me, etc.)

Since I will actually be doing this tomorrow (it's almost bed-time, a little late to start today!) I decided to post a couple of inspirational images to gear me up to give this a try tomorrow.

"Made To Crave" Online Bible Study

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

Proverbs 31 Ministries will be offering a new online Bible Study beginning January 19th and I'm excited to do this one!

proverbs31.org/online-bible-studies/



The book is available either through Proverbs 31 Ministries or on Amazon.com - I got the Kindle version for $2.99 which is a great option if your budget is tight (if you don't have a Kindle you can download a free Kindle app to your smartphone, tablet or computer).

A little excerpt from the introduction of the book:

"God made us capable of craving so we’d have an unquenchable desire for more of Him, and Him alone. Nothing changes until we make the choice to redirect our misguided cravings to the only one capable of satisfying them."

TerKeurst, Lysa (2010-12-21). Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food (Kindle Locations 107-108). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

Check it out and see if it's something that you might be interested in being a part of!

Isaiah 49 Reflections

Wednesday, October 16, 2013



13 Shout for joy, you heavens;
rejoice, you earth;
burst into song, you mountains!
For the Lord comforts his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.

19 “Though you were ruined and made desolate
and your land laid waste,
now you will be too small for your people,
and those who devoured you will be far away.”

Restoration . . . “though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste” – this happened because of Israel’s disobedience to God. They chose to go their own way. So God allowed them to be taken into captivity, and their land was destroyed and turned to wasteland.

BUT GOD RESTORES!!

In chapter one of “A Confident Heart” Renee talks about living in the shadow of doubt that looked so much bigger than she was. When she turned away from the shadow toward the light, the shadow disappeared from her view. (pp 20-21)
When we turn back to Him and acknowledge Him as Lord and Ruler, He will restore and rebuild our lives . . . to the point of overflowing! Those shadows of doubt, disappointment & disillusionment will disappear in the light of God’s truth and love!

Then you will know that I am the Lord;
those who hope in me will not be disappointed. (Isaiah 49:23b)

"Then" is an important word. It implies that something must come before. What this says to me is that this confidence (knowing that God is the Lord, hoping in Him, not being disappointed) comes only when we

1 – turn from our disobedience to follow God (turn away from the shadow into the Light).
2 – allow His healing hand to rebuild and restore the ruined and desolate places of our lives.
