Monday, November 23, 2009

Today has been great so far!!! I have had such energy today, I cleaned 2 rooms in my house and decluttered some areas that really needed it. I am so thankful for the energy today!!! I have been feeling so bad for about 6 weeks, it is just nice to feel good!!! Praise you Jesus!!!

Now, I am off to go for a walk....yippee!!!

I have finally reached the point that I can no longer stand to keep in the 160's with my weight. I can't seen to get past that 160 mark over the last couple of years. I have been doing a challenge with some wonderful women in my church and it has been great, but for some reason I am not been totally motivated. Not that I haven't been trying...I have started out really well on board doing what I was supposed to do...then comes the fizzle that always comes. I love to start things I just hate to finish things....it is total lack of discipline in my life. Why do I do that? I am going to ponder that for awhile and get back here to blog about it. I know it is a roadblock in my life and I need to overcome that roadblock.

I did have a small victory yesterday...I walked 2.7 miles with my hubby and it felt great!!! Now, I just need to stick with it. Today, my back hurts so bad I had to put my tens unit on and lay down....I am hopeful tomorrow will be a better day.

I need to recommit to a healthier lifestyle period. My body just isn't what it used to be...darn it anyway. But I know with God's help i can make the changes that needs to be made in order to feel better, look better and serve Him better.

God Bless!

    Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own:" 1 Corinthians 6:19

Hi Tammy,

Does that sound a bit familiar?? This is the Scripture that I keep in the back of my head when combating negative emoticon unhealthy choices.

I especially enjoyed reading of you're being "RECOMMITTED"! This is something I, myself would like to emoticon ~ daily!

May GOD bless you in HIS many glorious ways. emoticon

    Tammy I wish you lived in my community! I bet we would be best of friends, seriously. We are at the same place in life, with some very same issues. You inspired me today with setting your fitness Bucket List on Christian Women Putting God First! And...by re-committing to fitness! Great job! Your friend from W. Washington State. - Deb

How can you glorify God in your mind?

Thursday, September 06, 2007

I know that I am continually working on watching what comes in and goes out of my mind. I am actually trying to guard my mind with what images I let my eyes see. I take note when something bad goes through my mind to rebuke it and remember one of God's truth's.

I am renewing my mind with music, affirmations and scripture in order to make sure my mind does give God glory. I often think of God through the day and just thank Him in my mind or talk with Him in my mind, so I know that brings Him glory. I sometimes just daydream about what it will be like to see Jesus when I die and what He will say to me. I love that!! I praise him in my mind and know that He hears my thoughts. I love that about God, that He even hears our thoughts.


Cleansing-August 30th.

When we ask God for a miracle in our lives, whether of healing or provision or in a relationship, what part do YOU expect to play alongside God bringing it about?

Right now, I guess we have been praying for provision in our finances. I will say, that God has been really putting us to the test over the last couple of months in this area. I have 2 kids in college(tuition and books), had a tranmission blow in one car, had to buy a used car, and now the air conditioner is out in the house. ARRGGHH. I know that he wants us to be good stewards of our money...it has been really hard this month to do that. We have been wanting me to quit my job and stay home at the first of the year, and I just can't see how we are going to do that right now. Is God trying to tell me this is not the time to do that? Is He trying to show us that we just can't make it on one income? Or is this Satan just trying to put obsticles in our way from having more family time. I need to trust God and let go of wanting to know just what the outcome is going to be...I think that may be my part. I don't know. I am so confused.

    Fast & pray. Worship. Into His Word, & into His Word & pray some more...and wait on Him. I think the waiting on Him & His leading and direction is the hardest...keep seeking, knocking,asking...don't give up. There won't always be day, weeks, a months like these. I'm so glad you have a heart to seek the Lord! I'll be praying that something is answered in your life.

August 29th-Excited!!

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

Choose a verse from scripture today that exemplifies the one thing you are most excited about in your life.

First, I have to say today is my dd 21st birthday!!! I am so proud of her and she is a wonderful woman. I can't believe 21 years ago I had this little lady...God is so good. Happy Birthday my sweet Heather!!!

My scripture is:

Philippians 2:13 "For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him."

God has really been working on me in this area of my life....obedience. I have given over some things that I have been holding on to and trying to control for way too long. He told me for a year to go volunteer in the nursery at church and I really didn't want too. My children are much older and I kept thinking why did He want me there instead of with adults. Well, I finally was obedient and I can say that it has been such a blessing to be with those babies I can't even tell you. It has been a real joy and I know it pleases God. Also, I have always been in charge of the finances in my house and God told me to give that to my husband and I really was frightened about doing that, but He assured me that I needed to do this...so 2 weeks ago I did and I have to say it has been liberating. I am excited to see where God is going to take me in both of these areas and I am glad that I did obey Him. I know He will bless our family for being obedient and I just want to please Him always.
