Still Got Work to Do

Monday, October 05, 2009

While I continue to face my challenges of unemployment while trying to keep my household together I realize I still have a lot of work to do. I find the most difficult thing about staying motivated is recognizing a motivator can sometimes become discouraged. I mean I am the half full woman and often remind myself to look at the upside of things because I believe there is always an upside to everything even when we are too hurt to see it. However being that way often leaves you with your love ones and friends looking for that motivation from you so much that they forget that sometimes you need it to. As a matter of fact I forgot that I needed it myself. I mean I had to remind myself that I am human and can't do it alone either. So then I turned my head to God and reminded myself out loud that I need you now and the wonderful thing about that is he sends you all you need sometimes immediately and sometimes a little later. SO I picked myself up dusted off my gym shoes , opened up my journal, signed onto sparks people and got on my knees and said thank you i know I still got work to do and it will get done.

Theres no such thing as a fairy God mother

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

So as some of my spark friends know I have been unemployed for a couple of months. Initially I just dove into excercise and it really helped I lost some lbs and was feeling physically great. I went to New York and have been back for two weeks and I am struggling and it is mental now. I am struggling with the fact that I am having such a hard time finding a job and really falling behind on bills. Its not getting me to eat more but I am not excercising like I was.

I got on my knees and asked God to get me through this because I know it will get better. I am so tired of worrying about how I am going to pay one thing or another. I wish there was such a thing as a fairy god mother. Because I sure would ask for a new job and to clear all of my debt. I guess I just have to keep asking my God to look out for me and provide.

Just blogging out my thoughts . Lift me up in prayer spark family
Thank you

Audrey

    I remember reading earlier that you were unemployed. It's a very difficult thing to deal with, I know. I was in your shoes for six months and it really took it's toll.

Keep the faith, girl! You KNOW you are not alone! You have our good Lord with you ALL the time, watching over you, blessing you, keeping you healthy and safe.

Wanda's right. Remember to begin each day with thanks for the many blessings in your life. And in the evening, either write in a journal or on a blog about the five things you are most grateful for for that day.

My prayers and love are with you. Please keep us posted on how you're doing. We care!

Blessings!

    You have had so many great responses already, I am not sure what to say other than keep the faith. God did not bring you this far to drop you on your face. Keep doing your part and there are bound to be some doors, windows, or cubby holes opening up for you somewhere. Always be on the lookout. Maybe volunteering some time will provide an opportunity to network which might provide a job.

    Just a suggestion...now that you've asked God for His help to provide...start thanking Him for the money and job that are on their way to you right now! Positive affirmations. Claim what you want.
We are very good about asking, just not so good about remembering to receive.

Lots of hugs,
Wanda

    I am so sorry you lost your job but you did the right thing by praying about it and turning it over to God. Leave it to him. Call the bill collectors and let them know that you haven fallen on hard times. I'm sure they can work something out for/with you.

    Sister,

God will provide....that's the one thing I know for sure. I know it's challenging but when you're not job searching, keep yourself occupied with other positive things. Your words of encouragement this past year has done WONDERS for me. And, although I don't know you.....you have been a BLESSING to my healthy lifestyle. Thank you for being YOU!!! I will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers. God will NEVER leave His alone.

Blessings to you--love ya,

Finally 20lbs of fat Gone ( 8 week challenge blog)

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Slow and steady but it is leaving me . You know when you work hard and the scale does not reflect it . One time I was going to a trainer and he told me stay away from the scale it can be your down fall just continue to work hard and eat right and watch how your clothes fit differently and what people say when they begin to see the changes. Its funny my husband called me the other day to tell me that the intimate time we spent together was great but instead of saying it like that he said you have really lost weight .... I can feel it every where that made me smile all day. So here is my paper clips for my 8 week challenge team. Down 5

What God has for me is for Me!

Thursday, June 04, 2009

I was working today on the epllitical machine listening to my Ipod and all I could do to not shout out loud was peddle faster. While listening to some awesome music I was talking to God and waiting for an answer. And then I heard him say don't you worry what I have for you is for you.... That made me so happy I did an extra mile.....

    I was just reading the other day from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, and the selection goes right along with what you experienced...

"If we are saved and sanctified God guides us by our ordinary choices, and if we are going to choose what he does not want, He will check, and we must heed... God instructs us in what we choose, that is, He guides our common sense, and we no longer hinder His Spirit by continually saying- "Now Lord, what is Thy will?"
