Oh My Gosh! Not Again!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

So, this morning, I am literally rushing around, because I don't want to be late to ZUMBA & I have so been looking forward to it! AND what happens...omgosh, class is cancelled again. The very sweet instructor had surgery and they couldn't get a sub. Now, here's my interior battle...
ME:"But, my heart was set on Zumba!"
Other ME:"Well, it's not all about you, now is it?"
ME:"I know, I feel sorry for her & truth is I'd love to send her some flowers. I miss her too, not just her class."
Other ME:"Oh, so you do have a heart."
ME:"Yeah, and I left it at the gym." LOL
So, I left the gym without working out & I am hoping I will do my eliptical later, but have you ever had your heart set on something & then it was just like somebody let the wind out of your ballon? Well, that's me, but I do thank God I am healthy enough to get my big butt(well, I hear guys like big butts, so maybe that's a plus?!haha)outta bed, run my errands in my nice warm car that I have the priviledge to drive b/c I have a license(also a priviledge...I think sometimes people forget that), run my errands to the bank(that I am blessed to say has some money in it, I think ;),and go to my gym, where I am blessed to have a paid membership....well, I think you get where I am going....
Other ME:"Yeah, shut up already & count your blessings!"
ME:"Okay, I hate it when you are right!"
Other ME:"I told you so!"
ME:"Time to take that attitude check again...Let me change my OMGosh to....
OMGosh, It's another beautiful day you have been blessed with.I wake up & the devil shudders b/c he knows I mean business!I am blessed with more blessings than I can even count.....so let's go! It's time for WORK! Let's see what the "new & improved you looks like today!"Now if I can only get excited about Plan B...the home gym...to be continued....

    We just don't realize how blessed we are sometimes, until we pause and reflect, or until we hear other peoples problems! I hate when you have your mind set on something and it totally falls apart! Maybe God uses these situations to cause us to be more flexible! At least He has provided you with an opportunity for a Plan B! You can do it Girlfriend!

    As the person once said "It's deja-vu all over again."

I was going to upper body blast yesterday afternoon and got to the gym only to be greeted by a sign that said there would be no class because school was closed.


1. The instructor is nineteen, single and has no children school aged or otherwise.

2. My kids are all grown up.

I failed to make the connection, LOL

Your point is well taken. The moment it becomes only all about me is the moment I lose my focus and direction. There are blessings every where I turn I just need to see them.

TMI...Choose One Thing

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Okay, I know I am not alone here....New year, New plans & a dozen ways to get there...otherwise known as information overload. I am drowning in it & because of "too much information", nothing is getting done. UGH!!! We've all been there from time to time, but in order to be successful, we have to take one thing at a time. It's kind of like our walk with Christ. When we get saved, we are still that same person, with all the same flaws. If you were bald yesterday, guess what...you're still bald today. But, God begins to work on us from the inside and transformation begins to take place. We all wish all transformation could take place overnight in our instant society. BUT, would that really be what is best for us? I think when we walk through things, it helps to shape us into who we need to become; who God has called us to be. So, just for today, let us all choose just one thing to change & do it. We may need to practice this thing for many days, before moving on to something new, but in the process, we can create good habits, and permanent change. Thank God He never leaves us or forsakes us, which means He will be right there with us. He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, so He will give us what we need to get through it.Just choose one thing to change....one thing at a time. Walk through it and grow into all you are called to be.Inch by inch it's a cinch. And remember, just like the tortoise & the hare....slow and steady wins the race! Big hugs to you all!

    Yes, I agree! I started out the year with a list of things I wanted to accomplish and in 2 weeks, I was feeling depressed and about ready to throw in the towel. But, then after doing some serious praying. God reminded me to take one step at a time. So, most of my list is still there! But I'm concentrating on one thing- not the whole list! I'm no longer feeling overwhelmed!

Thanks for the reminder and the reassurance I'm moving in the right direction!

    Ok.......... first of all you dont have to remind me I am bald emoticon

I agree with ya. It's hard enough focusing on one thing much less a whole bunch of things that can choke ya. I am learning to simply put my faith in the Father and trust the path I am walking is the right one.

"In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1Thessalonias 5:18

So I will keep giving thanks and keep moving foward and continue to thank God for good friends like you.

Much Love

Will today be the day?

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Will today be the day I give in...I give up? Will today be the day I let my emotions determine my success? Well, I would have every excuse..I'm tired. I don't feel like it, I don't want to work out alone....and on & on the list goes. If we want to find excuses, we never have to look very far. BUT, on the other hand, why don't we choose THIS DAY to instead let the positives outweigh the negatives. Like for instance, Today if I don't give in to all my excuses... I will feel better about myself, I will make a step in the right direction. I WILL WIN! Just this one thing, can begin my continued journey towards healthy living! We know all the benefits, so let's, in the words of Nike, "JUST DO IT"! We have nothing to loose(except unhealthy habits & pounds) and everything to win! emoticon

    Why are we so hesitant to give ourselves the special gift of health? Won't it be a terrific feeling to reach a goal and say, "I did it!"? We owe it to ourselves to persevere. No one else can do this for us. Stay focused and positive. emoticon -- Lou

Today is a day of new beginnings. Many will make New Year's Resolutions only to break them. I believe today can be a day where we can make permanent change...change for a better me with better health. New dreams, visions & goals...something to strive for. I know there will be setbacks, & roadblocks, BUT I also know I am not alone on my journey. God is there with me & he promises to never leave or forsake me...so HE will help me on my journey. AND HE will help you too if you let him. And ya know what? We can all be there for each other. The journey will be tough, but so is life everyday. BUT we are not alone...we are all there together! And together & with God...ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE... if we only believe!CHOOSE TO BELIEVE!

    I frimly believe that angels dont exist soley in heaven. I believe God puts them here on earth with us to encourage us and support us.

Every day is a new begining and a new opportunity to be what I am supposed to be, A child of God who is loved.

What is truth?

Do you tell the truth...to yourself I mean?
God's word says, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."

I want to expound on this....
The truth is the opposite of lies.God is the father of truth.He never lied and He lives inside of you, if you know Him as your Lord & Savior.So then, why do we listen to the "father of lies" instead sometimes...the one who casts doubts on our dreams, who tells us we aren't worthy, who wants us to fail?

GOD, THE GOD, has called us to greater things.He says we are:

the head and not the tail, more than conquerors, the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, redeemed from the curse of the law, an overcomer, a new creation, transformed by the renewing of my mind, complete in HIM, His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of the Lord. Whatever I do shall prosper for I am like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the world. God's angels have charge over me and keep me. My pathway is filled with life! I put on the full armor of God & win! I delight myself in the Lord, and He gives me the desires of my heart! The Lord is my shepherd, I do not want for anything! God supplies all my needs! I sow bountifully & I reap bountifully! I trust in the Lord with all my heart & He directs my paths. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I let the peace of God rule in my heart & I cast my cares onto Him.
That's the TRUTH! GOD is truth! This is who I am & this is who you are!
Look, I am not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be! I'm okay ( because God says I am and accepts me for who I am) and I'm on my way!
I choose to walk in truth and VICTORY!

What is TRUTH to you? I hope you will choose to walk in truth with me. Be encouraged my spark friends and LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH!

P.S. If you haven't listened to the song, THE VOICE OF TRUTH, by Casting Crowns, I hope you will look it up. It will really lift your spirits today if they need lifting!

    Wonderful blog post. How timely! I was just thinking of when Pilate asked Jesus.."What is the truth?"

Facts and truth are not always the same.

For example; the fact is I'm overweight and may feel like a failure

the truth is; I'm not a failure cuz Love never fails

When we're lookin' for truth...we should always go to the one who said, "I am the way, the truth and the life"...Jesus!

xoxox Looking forward to your inspirational posts! Keep em'comin' !!!

    The key to your question is that we never believe we are worthy and when we dont think we are worthy it's so easy to believe all the lies. Satan has a fertile field so to speak.

Self doubt, fear, anxiety are all tools he uses to make us doubt out value and worth in God's eyes. It's when we work to walk in the light, and I really believe we have to work because it's not magic, then we see Gods love is so much stronger than any lie. Our hard works of faith help us over come.
