It's great when we learn something...but do we do what we learn???

YOU." ( PSALM 32:8)

We can find great information everywhere especially on sparkpeople but do say that is a good idea and act on it. Or just share the information with others and say oh woe! woe is me?
I can talk from experience: I have improved but I could have done better,
I do read great pieces and then not act on it. I can blame my thyroid disorder and say I just can't lose. Yes, some of it could be the disorder but if I'm honest I can look and see where I should have stopped at bite 5 because I was full but didn't because It tasted good. I could've eaten instead of not eating all day.
We are all human but the Lord does teach us and gives us wisdom but it is our decision if we act on the knowledge given to us.

I've tried to be honest, I hope this helps someone else that is making the same mistake of not acting upon what they learn. We can lose this weight!

For those of you that will say a prayer for me!

But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.

Jeremiah 17:7 NIV

This verse says it all...I am blessed, you are bless if your confidence is in him. What a overwhelming sense of love are in these words. As I reflect on these words, I feel the presence of the Lord all around me and feel that I heart is ready to burst from the amount of love God has for us.

God Bless this day and I give you my will and surrender this day to you and what you have planned for me. I have confidence in your saving grace and in the knowledge that you are next to me guiding me as I walk in this weight loss journey. Love and Prayers


Guarding your mouth and tongue

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

Proverbs 21: 23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue
keeps himself from calamity.

This verse can speak to us in many positive ways.

If we guard our mouth and tongue it will keep us from speaking when we should be silent. It would keep us from using hurtful words when we should be kind. It would keep us from eating more that we should or eating the right foods.

I am going to hold this verse close this week and hold in my thoughts and deeds are continue on this journey.


I will continually Praise God

Friday, August 31, 2007

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I have been at 200 for a couple month. It is like I'm frozen in ice.
Upon reflection I see it as my errors that have made me freeze.
Like the temptations that would keep me out of heaven, I can hear myself say: 'you need to stop', 'why are you eating that your not hungry', 'I just ate the whole thing' most importantly I hear that voice you don't need that however I eat it anyway. WE have the temptation of willpower. This is something I am going to work at...

Dear Heavenly Father, I love and adore you. You are there at all times. I want to be a blessing to you in all I do. I want all that I do in speech, thought, word, deed and how I care for body that you gave me as a temple for my soul to dwell. May I continually praise your Holy Name with every word I speak. In Jesus Name I pray...Amen
