It's a beautiful verse for SparkPeople:

1 Corinthians 9:24
[ The Need for Self-Discipline ] Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Run the race, get into it, don't sit aside and look, and finish the race...

Sorry I know something like that is written in the Bible, not share where and what the right words are..

Today I give it all to Jesus: my precious children, my mate, my hopes, my plans and dreams and schemes, my fears and failures- all. Peace and contentment come when the struggle ceases.

No weapon formed against me shall prosper

Life itself, every bit of health that we enjoy, every hour of liberty and free enjoyment, the ability to see, to hear, to speak, to think, and to imagine- all this comes from the hand of God. We show our gratitude by giving back to Him a part of that which He has given to us

No weapon formed against me shall prosper

Happy New Year, everybody! And may 2012 see all your challenges met!!!! I just wanted to thank Sweetlips (Jackie) for all her hard work to lead up this challenge-it has been such a blessing to me! Not only have I been reminded daily of keeping the Lord in my diet/lifestyle, but I have gained prayer partners and friends through this season. Thanks to all of you for helping to make this a wonderful challenge for me and although I can't say a whole lot of weight came off, I do end it with some great thoughts and sparkfriends! God bless, Lori

Yes, we are on the final week of the challenge, and I am so grateful for all of you. Right now, I am celebrating life of two of my friends that passed away on Friday and I do ask for your prayers for their families. There is much to say about them, as they were both women of faith and great friends.

As you go forth, I ask that you find things to celebrate about your day to day living and know that God has already solved any problems that you have, turn to God as the reason not just for this season, but for everything else as well. Begin to think about doing random acts of kindness for folks , like maybe paying for 20.00 worth of gas, or providing a meal to someone on your church's prayer concern list, or just praying daily for those on the list. Let's carry our celebration in to the new year.

This has been a great challenge and final week!

Successes to name a few include: I found I could make candy, then proceed to give away all but a few servings . . . . My annual cookie making was better than ever this year, in that I actually ate very few and gave away the majority . . . . My goal to maintain my 100-lb weight loss brought me to a 107-lb weight loss and a 22.4 BMI . . . . I have also enjoyed the waterfront of two beautiful cities. In the last week or so, I've visited three waterfalls, so my psyche at peace . . . . In the last three months, I have completed five prayer shawls, delivering two to a couple very special people.

I continue to incorporate many healthy habits to include good eating, fitness, and strength training. This challenge was a way to confirm my ability and persistence to stay the course with consistency in respect to all that God has given me. Tracking has been instrumental. God is good and I continue to be blessed through God's word and the service I am able to give others. To God be the glory. This is all part of a wonderful life-long learning process that will likely keep me on my toes for years to come.

God in His infinite wisdom knows just what we need when we need it-resting in that belief can help us get through some of the worst times! Faith is truly believing in the unseen, something very hard for us humans to do, but God has the power to give us more faith, and for that I am very thankful!!!

One thing I have learned, that is okay to have a melancholy day. I call them days of reflection and they bring me out of going the wrong way. I also listen to music and I love the Kirk Franklin song smile: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8SPwT3nQZ8 .

MissLori, you are right, don't go near the kitchen until you have your head right or the melancholies will take over and before you know it, you have eaten it up and the AWWMAN's take over. SMILE and enjoy your day.

I know the feeling, all you really want to eat is stuff that's not good for you! Try to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible! It's dangerous! I try watching happy movies when those moods hit. They're inevitable during these short, yukky days! I hope things improve quickly!!

Glad to be part of this team so I can come drink from the well! Feeling so discouraged lately, and not sure why. The good news is, when in this mood, which is not that often for me, I have little or no appetite. But then it's also hard to eat healthy.

Anyway, thanks SWEETLIPS, for your encouraging words which I just re-read.

Today I am so glad God is in control, and that I KNOW that!

My affirmation for today:
I am calm and at peace in my soul, because my God is able and He is at the wheel!

It's your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

I don't know what is going on in your life, but I am grateful to provide some encouragement to you. A Pray for you:

O God, give me, I pray Thee,
light on my right hand and light on my left hand
and light above me
and light beneath me,
O Lord, increase light within me
and give me light
and illuminate me.

This small and simple pray, ask of God to being in a special anointing for us, to allow God light to shine in and around us. We are in the season where we are celebrating the life of Jesus. The reason for the season can sometimes get lost in the sales, the commercialization of the time. It can leave many joyless, and in anxiety. When those things happen, we look for and find things, drugs, alcohol and /or food to assuage those feelings. We can often begin to feel down and fearful, wrapped in bondage.

If I can help someone with this scripture that means so much to me, I pray it does. This season for me is summed up with : John 10:10 - Plain English bible: The thief comes only to take the sheep and to put them to death: he comes for their destruction: I have come so that they may have life and have it in greater measure." What a wonderful promise, and we reap the benefits even when are not always align with God.

As you move through your way, take time to CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE. Feel the joy of receiving God's love and appreciate yourself, because you are God's gift to each and everyone of us. Don't slip and slide on the shoulda, coulda's but squeeze all the joy out of life that you can. Many are hurting for one reason or another and the fact that you can feel pain, means God is still in reach and you are still alive.

No one can do for you what you can do for yourself. What does that mean, well here we go:

If you don't love you, why would someone else take the time;
If you are negative all the time, who want to give you a positive;
If life is passing you by, who wants to sit on the bench with you and watch life go;
If find fault with everything, then who wants to be found in fault.

INSTEAD

Take the time to sow love, and receive love;
Give yourself permission to forgive;
Release fears even those about reaching your weightless goal.
Recommit to be in relationship and fellowship with God
Don't criticise, laugh and suggest changes.

Look over your life, and determine if you have been in the same place, doing the same thing the same way and ask God to come into your heart and fill you with the Holy Ghost, ask God for wisdom and then just begin to Thank God for everything, no matter what the circumstance is. When you do this, you learn to accept what God allows and watch God work it though!!

BLESSINGS

Thanks so much for all your prayers-I know they made a difference as this last week was much easier. Life just seems to hand us some uglies once in a while and it's up to us to find the roses amongst the thorns. Thanks again, and have a great week all! Enjoy this Thanksgiving in the very best way- with praise!

My blessing came two months early and was a premmie weighing 2:8 oz - however, on her first day of life, she cried so loud, they thought another baby was in the room. Her birth restored life to our family from my husband through the rest family. Lori, accept what God allows and rejoice as God does have something in the store for you. Blessings!!!

@ MISSLORI5 - congrats on the blessing of a grandbaby! We pray for a happy, healthy, & successful birth. The one thing we know for sure is that HE is Sovereign and in control. God can take what we might think is a mess and deliver a message... My love goes out to you and your family. Take comfort in the fact that the FATHER is able to keep you...

@ Sweetlips - awesome devotion. The MASTER is in fact confirming some things for me right now. Thanks for the post!

Be blessed,
~Debbie

Neh. 2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God... so they strengthen their hands for this good work.

Thank you all for your prayers for me. My husband and I found out last week we will be grandparents. This was a total shock as my daughter is not yet married and a Christian. However, life happens, so now we are adjusting. She lives in Oklahoma City, while we are in WA state. The young man who fathered this child has known my daughter for many years, and they hope to marry, but we will see. God has given us some time to come to terms with all this, but there is still a bit of worry and fear involved. Not only for my daughter, the young man, and the unborn child, but also for our part in all this. So please keep us in your prayers. Thanks with love,

Philippians 3:13-14- I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Many of us are dealing with issues from our past that have caused us to gain weight, and even after releasing the weight, we have not laid aside all the other weight, and truthfully, we may gain it back or even if we don’t gain it back, we are just not joyful.

Our banner scripture for this challenge tells us in Jeremiah that God has a plan for our lives. And you know if God has a plan, it is perfect! God has a plan for your life. It is perfect and none of us are mistakes – The Bible says we are created in Christ Jesus to do good works "Stand fast in liberty were with Christ has made you free" Galatians says that he prepared for us to do in advance. So God has a perfect work for you to do. He already laid it out. You are not a mistake. You’re here on purpose and you are great because God has called you.

We are also created to be free – nowhere have I read in the Bible, through my visitation with the Holy Spirit, have I heard that we were created to be bound up, under arrest, we were created for freedom. "Stand fast in liberty were with Christ has made you free" Galatians says,

I really want you to think about freedom. What is your definition, now here are some bible truths - The bible says you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. So everybody here who is in Christ Jesus, you know the truth. So the truth is going to set you free. You were created in God's image. He has a plan for you. The plan is perfect. You are not a mistake. You were created on purpose. And the truth sets you free. Because of that we need to learn how to focus on the freedoms and the purpose that God has for us.

We have to stay focused and stop fighting the wrong battle – our weight, our insecurities our pain is far deeper than the surface stuff that I know that I focus on and I just believe I am not the only one. Yes, I have to take care of myself, but I also have to look beyond and fight forward. I have some things from my past that I have let go, but then there are something’s that I have let take ahold of me, and now I realize that they have to go too. I have been fighting the wrong battle and wasting energy.

There are seasons when you fight and seasons when you rest. And you can't fight every battle because you don't have enough energy. So you pick you battles and you pick your seasons. And you know, I find it easier to pick battles that I know I am going to win. And it’s a biblical principle, which goes into battle without first seeing if he has enough army guys or warriors behind him? And if he sees he can't win, we will go and make peace before it gets into the battle. We do that as individuals. Sometimes we are fighting things that we shouldn't. We are fighting at the wrong place, the wrong time, and we are wasting energy when God has said we are supposed to be free.

Please take you time to think about being free – free from your past that so easily can creep up and make you feel like it is real right then. Free from the pain that others have caused us and that we have allowed. Free from feeling unloved – I know that God loves us – I know that I know, that I know and so if for just a but, if you can just focus on that love, just for a moment can you not worry about human love, just for a moment, can you accept that you are loveable, then I believe that you can press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. That does not mean you have to die, that means you can now live a full life and live more abundantly. God Bless You!!

What ever the trouble the feeling the whatever about whatever, you already know that there is nothing too hard for God, so I am askling God to enter you right now and feel you with His presence and His love - think about the birds, they do not worry about where they will lay, think about where God has brought you from and through and know that he is ever present in the times of trouble. God bless yoy.

It is one of God's little ironies that when we hurt the most is when we reach out to God the easiest. Go figure.

Today was a pretty good day. God's gentle reminders in the colors of fall, just the smell of change in the air, the homier feeling I get from shorter days, He's here with me in everything and everywhere I look. I am so very thankful He is forever to be my partner and friend!

I am so thankful God knows me inside and out. It gives me such freedom to be me, and not just someone I think He wants me to be!

Thank you Debbie. I know, I have some of the same thoughts. And in God's searching, we get to have God remake us in the way that God wants too. I am encouraged for our changes and the reminder that God knows us and still loves us so much!!

Love the scripture that invites God to "search me". Sometimes I'm not sure of what HE might find! It's kind of like having that anxiety just before stepping on the scale... If I step on in lightly and keep light thoughts... emoticon , maybe I'll pass the test. As ridiculous as it might sound, I believe it's just a trick of the enemy messing with my desire to trust God fully.

Thank you so much for the reminder through this passage of scripture! I am more determined than ever to stay transparent before God; as well as "keeping it real" concerning this journey. emoticon It's not like HE doesn't already know... emoticon

Neh. 2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God... so they strengthen their hands for this good work.
