I have only been part of SP for a short while but in that time both of you ladies have taken a role of spiritual leadership in my life and I am always so encouraged, challenged, blessed by what you say. When I tell my friends about SP, the biggest seller is the fact that the program addresses body, soul, and spirit. I thank God for both of you, for your willingness to pour yourselves out for us, for your generosity of heart, for your contageous excitement about what God is doing in our lives. His love for both of you has blossomed in my own heart.
There is nothing we can do to make God love us more; there is nothing we can do to make God love us less. -- Philip Yancey
Never say that! You are not sounding full of yourself. You are a great asset to this team and God. I am thankful that God brought me to you. Lately, the devil has been messing with me. Trying hard to make me give up. But I know that God is watching over me and I have to give it all the God and let go. If I am going to be totally honest, I have been getting annoyed when I check my email and I see that there is a new member of this team. Clearly this is the devil working on me. It is actually wornderful to see so many people join this team and know they are going to find answers here and be inspired from other team members.
Personally for me, I know I need to open up and share more with this team. I guess this should be the next thing I work on. I get so many comments and spark mail that I inspire and motivate so many people and I have made 36 friend in just over 3 months. But everyday is a struggle for me to just keep going. You do more for me that you may ever imagine and I want you to keep doing what you are doing for this team.
Okay, I got that off my chest. Later, I will decide what I need to share and come back and share. Thanks for all you do Shelly.

I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No," suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No," I must grow on my own as he prunes me to make me fruitful. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No," I will give you life that you may enjoy all things. I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. And God said, "Now you got it!"
This web site has so much to offer. The nutrition page is filled with all kinds of tools to help you stay focused, and staying on target with the Knowledge of the calories you have eaten. The fitness page is so very helpful counting calories that you have burned which helps you stay motivated. My friend once said, " Spark people offers you so much you really don't have an excuse NOT to lose weight." And she is correct!
Don't miss out on all the things this team page has to offer. I know I am risking sounding full of myself, but those who have gotten to know me, knows I give God ALL the credit for anything good that comes from this team. The things I write, the praise I get, all comes from God's gift HE has given THIS team!
Which is why I urge you to spend sometime in the strength through Jesus forum. You signed up to be a member of, can't do this on my own. This forum was designed so you could read the threads in strength through Jesus forum and receive his power, grace, strength, & ability to live a healthy lifestyle, spiritually and physically.
I wrote a thread called, I am better than you. Hoping to get your attention was my idea for the title, for I know ho one is better than anyone, but God himself. Please read this thread. Three people have responded, two of them stated that they were looking forward to reading lessons that other people have learned. Isn't that how we grow in Christ. We share our stories, our pain, our triumphs, and as a result others are uplifted?
I am not seeking praise, but rather seek praise OF GOD. Leave a comment if you wish. Everything I write is to praise God, help you live in a better way by being spiritually, emotionally, & physically healthy. Your team mates are waiting for your to respond, so they can learn and grow from your comments. I wrote this NOT to draw attention to myself, rather draw your attention to God.
DID GOD GET YOUR ATTENTION?......If so read, I am better than you are, in the strength through Jesus forum towards the bottom of this page, and leave a coment if one comes to you. I thank you and your team members thank you as well.
