Small Steps

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Good morning everyone,

This morning Im starting some new goals. Like my initial goal of losing all my weight,, it took small steps. Each one of us face mountains everyday to overcome. If you ever seen those guys on television who scale the mightiest mountains, they have check points, and look at the small step in front of them. After a period of time (and its not over night) the mountain becomes smaller and smaller. The reason is because those small steps have taken them further and further up their goal. This morning as I start a new mountain climbing challenge, I would like to challenge you to look at your overall goal. Now break it down and shoot for that first check point in accomplishing your mountain.

God bless
Jason

Sacrifices

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Good morning everyone,

I've been gone for several weeks, but Im back and ready to get started again. This morning I was reading in the book of Leviticus about the sacrifices that the Israelites had to do during the old testament. My journey with spark people started back in Christmas of this past year and many sacrifices had to be made. Some of you probably do not know me, but I weighted around 315 pounds at christmas and now currently running around 230. Was the sacrifices I made worth it. Absolutely!!! I had to make a decision to give up my old life style and start anew. What a difference it has made. Do I still struggle. Absolutely!!! but now I know I can do it and would never change anything in the changes and sacrifices I made. I have a new mind set and a new life style. What has been even more impressive is my walk with Christ over the past 6 months. Allowing him to guide me and starting my day off with him each day, gave me all the motivation I needed. When I look at the big picture, the small sacrifices I made added up, but I will always remember that the biggest sacrifice ever made for me was Christ dying on the cross. I can never repay him for that, but I sure can live for him and do my best to serve him with my life and life style. It was his sacrifice that gives me life. I would like to say Im glad to be back and I hope I hear from many of you and how your doing. Just remember Through Christ All Things are Possible!!!

God Bless
Jason

Restart

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Good evening everyone,

Over the past couple of weeks I have really struggled with my eatting. I'm in the middle of coaching high school golf and have found myself eating out a lot with the team. Unfortunately, I have found myself ending up like I was before spark people and eating too much. I sat down last night to redo my goals and basically started over again. I have currently lost 92 pounds, but put 6 back on in the past week. I would like if anyone who reads this to please pray for me to stick with my new life style and not fall so easy to my old ways of eating.

thank you
Jason

    Its a good thing to see and acknowledge we are on the wrong path, getting back at it, can be harder than the start of it all! Amazing how far you have come! Keep up the great work, and, just party once and a while with the team.

Overcoming distractions and obstacles

Friday, May 02, 2014

Good morning everyone,
This morning I was reading about Moses and Aaron and their faithfulness to God. There were several times when they went to the people of Israel and Pharaoh and were confronted with rejection and turmoil. But because of their faithfulness to God, he gave them strength to overcome the troubles of their world. As we move forward in life with Sparkpeople, we will have people who will not see eye to eye with the things we are doing. They will become a distraction, discouragement, and a hurdle. We need to stay focus to the task at hand. Overcome the troubles of the world, the negativity, and the desire to say I can/t go any further and push on. I challenge you today, to push through, even though those around you may say or make it look difficult. You can do it. Be faithful in the actions that your doing to have a new life style.

May God Bless you,

Jason

Good morning everyone,

I was reading in the book of Genesis this morning about Joseph and Jacob. At the end of his life Jacob, he laid his hands on Joseph sons and blessed them. This morning I just want to take this opportunity to bless each person who reads this blog today. May God bless you with a special day. May He help you overcome the distractions of life and give you peace. May He give you wisdom and guidance in your life today. I pray that each of you today who is reading this will be blessed with something special today. Amen.

Have a blessed day,

Jason
