Made to Crave

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Just checking in and I now have some Bible Verses for you.
Verse for the Week:
1 Peter 5:7-8a
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be self-controlled and alert."

Word for the Week:
#Determination

Community--If we don't have people around us to encourage us we will not be able to do this accountability. Bring thinks out into the light, it tends not to have a power over you.--This is what you and I are doing. Now we need to pray for each other to do what God is wanting us to do about our bodies. I don't want to be a skinny Minnie but I want to be healthy.

Stick closer to Jesus more than ever. If you feel the opposition and we will throw you hands in the air and say"Praise God something is working." "Anytime God starts a movement, the enemy starts opposition. Steven Furrtick--Sun Stand Still

John 10:10
" The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it full."

What I was NOT made for:
1. Discouragement--It happens expect and don't be caught off guard. --Go away and leave me alone!!!
Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord you God will be with wherever you go."

2. Do not settle for mediocre. Giving up
This is just the way I am. This too hard. Maybe God just made me this way.
God did not make you to settle. How can I know this for sure?
Ephesians 2:10
"For we are God's workmanship (Masterpiece=piece of the Master), created in Christ Jesus to do good works; which God prepared in advance for us to do."
We are a piece of the creator:
Genesis 1:26
" Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and all the creatures that move along the ground.'"

Whining
Whining drowns out the voice of God. How can you hear God?
Whining places the focus on the negatives instead of the positives. Do not Park!!!
When you dwell on the whiny reasons, you have a pity party and become a party-pooper. This can become contagious. "Turn your pity into purpose." Lysa TurKeurst

Put God in charge of your work, then what you've planned will take place.
Proverbs 16:3
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."

False Identity
all of these discourage, settling for, mediocre, and whining are contributors to your False Identity. Don't be defined by these things.
You were made for more.

True Identity is
Forgiven--Romans 3:24
"and are justified (forgiven) freely His grace through the redemption that came from Jesus Christ.
Set Free--Romans 8:1-2
1 "Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death."
Accepted--1 Corinthians 1:2
"To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with those everywhere who called on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--Their Lord and ours."

There are more Bible verses but this is as far as I have gotten--more to come.

Let me know if this is OK. I will send more if you want. I don't want to push this down your throat. I just want to do this. I need an accountability pardner to get there. Uh I believe that is you. Thank you for being there.
Vickie

  


I am holding my own

Friday, July 26, 2013

I'm not doing much here today, Danny is home sick and not working. He has really gone down hill this week. We went to the Dr.'s on Mon. and he says that the longer he is on Chemo the more tired he will be. This new Chemo after 2 treatments of it has completely zapped him. So he is resting and allowing the Chemo to do it's work. That still don't help me since I worry too much about him. But so far I have not broke over and ate the house out. Trying to stay focused and not do what I did last year. If I haven't lost weight I am still holding my own. To me that is an accomplishment. I need all of you prayers to keep me strong and get through this time.
Thank you,
Vickie

    Sometimes, just holding your own is all you can ask of yourself when you're stressed. As Darlene said, caring for yourself will help you care for Danny.
Blessings and peace,
Amy

Our Holidays

Friday, January 06, 2012

Danny has been in the hospital 2 times during the holidays. He went in on Friday before Christmas with a hemaglobin of 3.8 and received 6 units of packed cells blood. His hemaglobin then got up to 8.9 by Christmas night. We did get to come home Christmas night. On Friday he made an appointment for a colonoscopy and a EGD. They found a tumor in the sigmoid part of his colon. They did surgery that day. The Dr. said it was a low grade tumor and we would wait for the pathology report. The pathology report showed only 1 out of 12 lymph nodes was malignant. That did not seem too bad we thought. Anyway we were in the hospital for News Year and then come home on Tuesday afterwards. Shortly after we got home his medical Dr. called and said we had an appointment with an oncologist/hemotologist. They seem to think that Danny has Multiple Myloma. This is a whole new ballgame now. This would require treatment of either chemo-therapy or stemcells and chemo-therapy. Boneloss and fractures of the bones is one of the signs but he has not had that. Just the low blood count. So I'm asking you all to pray for him.

Love,

Vickie

    Oh honey. A different ballgame indeed but the doctors are only thinking this? - but I can completely understand where your mind might be. I've walked this path a few times myself and will be thinking of you both on Tuesday and sending positive thoughts. I'm always around if you ever want to talk, shout....

Hugs to you both
