Lord, there is no situation beyond your ability to correct.

Every decision we make is not critical nor is every mistake fatal. Lord, help me keep things in perspective and avoid the panic such thinking creates.

Back on track 01/02/2008.

My Mother's day goal is to be out of the 200's.



What I can do, and what God will do, is always enough.

CLTWEETY2001, I had to send this to you. I am listening to music as I am reading what you wrote. The song I am listening to say "Know matter what you are going through, the battle is not your it is the Lords". It is a song by Yolanda Adams and it happens to be my fav. song but it spoke to me more with what you just said. Know matter what you are going through pray through it and know that the battle (the weight) is not yours to fight alone, let the Lord help. REMEMBER The battle can be fought with the LORDS help. Pray, pray, pray!!!!!

Hi all!
I just wanted to thank God for this group. Not only do I need words of encouragement for my weight loss journey, I need words of encouragement on my spiritual journey. I know that God directs our paths and I believe that he directed me to this sight for aa reason. Be blessed and have a wonderful weekend.

I just want to give all glory, honor and praise to God for this day. We thank You that inspite of our mess ups, You continue to love us. I pray Father God that You order our steps this day. Help us to stay focused so that we can keep our eyes on you and the things that You desire for us to accomplish. We will acknowledge you in all of our ways so that you alone can direct our paths. Let this day continue to be an easy day. We just want to give you all glory. We choose not to be anxious about the details of life, but to put our trust in you to do what only You can do to help us to be prosperous in life. We will forever bless You Lord God.

Lord God, help us to take care of this body that You have created for Your glory and praise. Help us to eat the right things in the right way. Help us to think before we eat. Help us not to be a glutton, but to eat only when hungry and to eat enough to take away the hunger and to be satisfied with that.

Help us to exercise this body, so that we can be fit for the journey you have for us. Let us not be slothful, knowing that as we exercise, you will give us the energy to complete the task. Father God, we do this all for your glory, honor and praise. We Thank You for this day! AMEN


Finally my brother, whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

Good morning ladies,
I was reading Ecclesiastes 9 to my daughter last night for her bed time story and she asked me what it was saying, and I said, "God is in control, whether good or bad". Then to come and read this message this morning is confirmation that God is in control of all of our situations, even our weight issues. Praise Be Unto God for Being in Control of All of my Situations. emoticon

Wonderful words of encouragement. I am a teacher and my day was very trying. I don't look at this as a profession, I look at it as a ministry. So when there is failure it weighs heavily on my heart. God knew that I needed encouragement. Thank you so much.
God bless!

As You wake, remember that GOD is the first one waiting to talk with you. Good Morning Lord. Let's have a grand and wonderful day.

Many more things go right in a day than go wrong. But you will never notice if that one trying moment becomes your focus Lord, help me make a conscious effort to see the richness of my life and live with gratitude for all of its wonders.

I agree - as a overweight black woman with too many things to do I sometimes feel the world is on my shoulder but, when I realize it's not my battle to fight and wait on the lord to give me direction I'm instantly calmed and know exactly what to do.

You are absolutely right.. The Battele is NOT Ours..it is the Lords. I get emotional every time I hear that song b/c it is sooo true. With our weight issues, we do need to pray on it , do the neccesary steps to loosing the weight and let the Lord take control.

I am so glad that I stopped by this thread to read all of your encouraging words. You are so correct my weight situation is nothing for the Lord. He who caused the Red Sea to part, who allowed Noah to play a major part in the new beginning of our world, Who caused Sarah in a very old age to give birth to a son. I could go on and on... but I faithful that this situation with my weight is nothing compared to the other miracles He has performed! So how much more will he Who has ALL power over everything, be able to help me not only lose this extra weight, but KEEP IT OFF!!! Hallelujah!

God's blessings,
Jovonn

May Gods blessings be upon you and your families.


The only thing standing in the way of my success is ME! So I choose to move out the way and claim my Victory!


Jovonn

Even when it's over my head its still under God's feet.

When I come to the end of my rope, I need to let go and let God.

My job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible.

What I can do and what God will do is always enough.

Good Morning Everybody:

I'm listening to a CD by the Georgia Mass Choir, one of the songs is "Turn It Over to Jesus".

I turned IT over to Jesus and, I stopped worrying about IT. He can work it out. I know He will!

Tell us about one thing He worked out for you this week. Every heartache, every burden, every mountain.....every pound, every calorie.....He Can work it out
