Even . . .

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

I neither lost nor gained this week, and I am glad for this. I don't want to gain any back, because it made me feel awful.
Sitting in a restaurant booth was suffocating
walking was a pain
Clothes were tight
My body was rebeling (constipation, diarrhea, diabetes complications)

So yes I am glad to have stayed the same, but next week will be even better with a loss.
Be blessed sparkfriends

My freedom :)

Sunday, July 04, 2010

For me, my freedom came when Christ Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice to save me. I know that being free from sin am I able to serve my Lord daily, and live a life as an example of His love. Although there will be many mistakes on my part, I can also call on him to help me, to forgive and to guide me.
What I need to remember though is that with freedom also comes responsibility and I am still learning this. So as each new day begins I start with prayer, for guidance, forgiveness and thanksgiving. For today I will enjoy this freedom that GOD gave to us in being here in this country and opportunities it brings to help others.
Have a Happy 4th of July Sparkfamily

Aging :( and other stuff

Saturday, July 03, 2010

I've been bad about taking my meds.
I've been without my insulin for 4 days, and my psych meds too (for depression), and now I am feeling weird symptoms because of it. I did start right back on the insulin as soon as I got it and then today my sister gave me some of her psych meds (same type & dosage) and I will get my refill on Monday.
At one time my older sister used to tell me that I should give all this stuff up and to rely on GOD for healing, but I know that it was GOD who helped and created these things to help us and I know for me it has. I just need to be consistent in my care of this body so that I can finish my purpose here.
This past birthday really opened my eyes to what I am to do with this time here on earth and I think I still try to look beyond it to what I really want and that vision gets in the way. I mean I forget how, what I need to do to get there. I think I also get impatient and want to do things the easy way.
GOD does give me reminders to slow down, and when to pick up the pace, it's just my ole human nature to be stubborn. I want a closer relationship with My LORD, but I get distracted easily and then I feel lost. Please keep me in prayer about this.
I have a request for my Christian/Spiritual Sparkfriends, I read a comment and it said "Let GOD be your personal trainer" so I was wondering what kind of program would that be like? I don't know my Bible that well, so I was wondering if anyone can come up with Scripture or knowledge of how to incorporate it into a health program?
I am a part ot the First Place 4 Health (Christian) weightloss program but it's teaching is about balanced living of, Mental, Physical, Emotional and Spiritual areas. I have also read the Weighdown program book but it's not what I'm looking for.
I don't mean to confuse you all, but being Native American, those traditions are just about almost forgotten and if I participate I am condemned by the Christian community (devout family members) that's why I asked about Spiritual guidance as well. To me, a higher power is my GOD, the creator.
Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Be blessed Sparkfriends

I know this a really different type of blog but it's something that has been in my thoughts.

  I've never heard "Let God be your personal trainer." I'm taking "The Lord's Table" course on has been helping me to view overeating and inactivity(laziness) as the problem, instead of food in general.
As far as feeling condemned by Christians...can you tell us how we make you feel condemned? That shouldn't be the case. Because John 3:17 says that Jesus didn't come to us to condemn us but that through Him we would be saved. There is a difference between feeling conviction because of sins we've committed, and feeling condemned. Conviction should lead us(notice I don't say YOU-because this applies to EVERYONE including ME)to repentence-turning away from our old fleshly ways and with God's help, doing what HE wants us to do. The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, kindness, meekness, faith, and self-control. So the fruits of the flesh are-hate/bitterness, depression and sadness, impatience, cruelty or violence, evil, self-righteousness, doubt, and over-indulgence. Don't get it twisted. Many CHRISTIANS still struggle with the fruits of the flesh(I myself am one of them!)-the hypocrites are the ones who condemn you for the stuff they still struggle with themselves. It isn't uncommon for a Christian to do what they don't want to do. The goal is to keep pressing in to the presence of God-reading scripture, worshipping Him for all He has done, for what He is promised to do-and most of all, just for who He is. That can be really difficult to do when things seem like they're falling apart all around us.
Yes, by His stripes we've already been healed-but sometimes there is a reason He allows us to be be ill or in pain-so that we know that His grace is enough.(His grace helps me get the house clean or walk to the store or cook for my family, or even just to STAND UP in spite of really horrible constant foot pain-so bad sometimes that it keeps me up at night. His grace is enough to get me through the day.) So that He may be glorified.
Let me clarify too, that depression isn't ALWAYS a fruit of the flesh! I KNOW THIS because it is also a chemical imbalance that causes it-my father is chemically bipolar, his mother was on anti-psychotics!-It seems to get less with every generation.
You know where to find me. Be blessed.
