I am so thankful for the way the Lord is working in my life on different levels: physically, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually! God be praised!

The scale has begun to move for me! But, more importantly, I'm getting in a lot of walking along with the other exercise. It can be challenging in the heat, but feels so good to have accomplished something each day. Praise God!

emoticon , MJ, on separating your fitness from finances and a cold home. Too often we do allow "other" things to waylay our eating and exercising, taking our eyes off of our weight loss goal. Keep up the good effort and know that prayers are being offered that your situation improves. Hang in there. emoticon -- Lou

Hello Everyone,

First of all, let me say, I give thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all things and also for this site and this team! Usually, I just give a quote or pep for a huddle. But I'd like to introduce myself and give a testimony. I have been on this site since October and I've lost 10 pounds. I really wanted more, but I realize that weight loss is more difficult at this age. My testimony is, I haven't given up. I have been on many diets and given up after a plateau. Usually, I give up after a few weeks, especially since I've been faithful to my diet, water, and exercise!
Also, I retired and was injured in a car accident. So dealing with limited funds, endless doctors visits, and legal red tape hasn't made weight loss easy at all. But my greatest testimony was day before yesterday! I had a "stomach flu" and vomited so violently that I damaged my partial.So I went to the dentist, with a headache and sore mouth, to have repairs, etc. After a whooping $900 bill, I came home to find that my furnace had quit in 10 degree weather!
Now before you say ahhh, just know that I've got the victory! I'm not sad or defeated at all! Even though the dentist has called me back in for later today, to discuss "something important" (Hallelujah, Anyhow!) I got in over 15,000 steps, stayed in my calorie range, logged on, watched some videos, prayed and praised God! I am determined and encouraged! Yes team, I can do all things through Christ! We all can!

emoticon emoticon emoticon PTL!

MJ

Praise the Lord that dad's knee surgery went well yesterday.
The doc said it was a complicated knee but he was able to work with it.
Dad is waking up and moving his toes, doing breathing treatment now.
He also started his physical therapy today. Was able to walk to the door.
Then he turned around and came back. Dad may be able to come home Friday.
(Or Saturday at the latest. Depending on how everything goes.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We all appreciate it.
I pray that all of you are doing well. Have a blessed night.
Your friend in Christ and Fitness, Holly emoticon

I was careless and didn't close the house's back door. One of my dogs once again took advantage and ran down the block. I am grateful she was heading home and came to the car when I drove to find her. I need to be more careful. Thought I had learned my lesson with her. So happy and thankful she's home. -- Lou

It's been several weeks since I wrote, and I need to update you. My friend Janis fought to the very end, but she died the end of July. I never did hear from her about accepting Jesus as her Savior, but that's in His hands and I have peace about it.

I spoke last eve with my sister, Sally. She's almost 1/2 way through chemo treatments, and doing ok. God is working out even the little details for her, and she's well away of His presence and help.

Thanks for your prayers.

Hi All,

I am writing this in reply to my friend who wrote in response to a daily motivating message about "Pushing Forward" on our Team Page I am a Leader of, after thinking about this, I realize it is for all to read, hope this inspires, motivates and keeps you going...

We all at times take a few steps forward and then a few back, that's ok, the main thing is we just keep pushing and pushing, looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.

While I was recovering from my devastating accident I kept pushing and pushing, I was bedridden for a whole year, didn't have much movement, had others doing pretty much everything for me, but in the end push gave way to shove and step by step I got out of that bed, first it was slow, all I could manage was for a few moments in a power chair, then I advanced to a manual wheelchair with lots of added helps so I could be in it, now I am up in a sport wheelchair pushing myself on my own, have full upper body movement and am able to stand a little with holding onto something or leaning against a counter, I have only a short open window for that, but I keep doing it, I stand a few times a day, basically for seconds at a time, but I'm standing, my MS and other nerve damage to the spine and neck doesn't reverse itself but my Jesus did this for me, He has brought healing step by step and little by little, I still have chronic pain which I take meds for which allows me to keep moving, it may be limited in some ways, but this gal is moving, I give God all the Glory for what He has done for me.

The bottom line is keep pushing and pushing, move those bodies in however way you can, in the end we win with Christ Jesus our Lord!

I've asked for prayer for my friend who has pancreatic cancer. I'm afraid I don't have any encouraging news about her, except that she's a fighter and is determined to beat this.

I've also asked for prayer for my sister who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She went this week to the dr then for her first chemo therapy. I spoke with Sally the next day and she said it wasn't as bad as she'd been afraid - that's a praise. She also had several pieces of good news (ex: still at stage 1), and is trusting the Lord. I just wanted to update y'all, and thank you for praying.

Thank you. Sorry I haven't been posting here much.
Been busy with job hunting and helping out with the Summer Reading Program.
It is the last day. They are handing out certificates and hired a clown.
Will make sure that the clown and the kids turn out good and healthy at the end.
(Mostly making sure they have enough hands to pass things out with).
And that they don't try to climb on the table, fall over, and it their heads.
Have a good day and weekend my friends!!!! Holly emoticon

I was truly blessed today.

After I parked in a library lot to attend a seminar, I went to the passenger side of the car to get out a notebook and books to return. For some reason, instead of putting my keys in my pocket I set them on the car's roof. An hour and a half later, after the seminar, I couldn't find my keys and remembered I had left them on top of the car.

Praise the Lord they were still there and the car was still there. The cars on each side had left and new ones parked but no one brought the keys inside, if they saw them, AND no one stole my car with so much in it.

Simply saying thank you Jesus does not seem enough. A true blessing. -- Lou

Glory to God! I spent many years in prison ministry and it fills my heart with joy every time a inmate opens their heart to the love of God, to the light of truth. I pray even now a hedge of protection over this woman, that the plans of the enemy to devour her will be thwarted. If she needs further help, see if there is a Teen Challenge program nearby. They are for adults as well as kids and have the highest success rate of any drug rehab in the nation, by far. The National Institutes of Health did an extensive study of the program many years ago and documented its success rate at 82% for heroine addiction (five years after sobriety). Jesus is what sets Teen Challenge apart from all the rest. It's an excellent program.

My DH and I have been Christians for many years, but I suspected he wasn't too 'into' growth until a thing or two happened this past year. Even so, I was praying that God would grab DH and cause him to grow. I'm sorry if that sounds judgemental, but it was out of love that DH would get closer to God.

Starting this year, our church made special Bibles available to us so we can read through the Bible in the year. Each day there are passages from the Old Testament, the New Testament and from either Psalms or Proverbs. It doesn't take a long time to read each day. DH and I are separately reading every morning. Then, we talk about what we've read.

See this.......I'm doing my happy dance. : ) Praise God! I knew He would answer my prayer, because it's something that He (God) wants, too.

Praise the Lord, Lou. I'm also thankful that you were kept safe. I know we sometimes have to wonder WHAT makes a driver do whatever it is that he did, but yes, angels and the mighty hand of God often keep us from harm.

I am so thankful my car was not rear-ended tonight on my way home from dinner when a car in front of me stopped on a dime for some reason. I don't tailgate and there was nothing in front of the driver, no animals I could see, no other cars. I was fortunate to stop and to have the driver behind me stop in time. -- Lou

It's a little like a scene in a movie I saw recently.....a man was shot in the head but took several steps to his car before falling. He was dead when he was shot, but he just didn't realize it.

Similarly, Satan is already defeated....he just hasn't given up yet. Because we are IN Christ and He is IN us, Satan is already defeated in us.....he just hasn't given up, and yes, sometimes we will sin because we still have our human nature, but we already have the victory through Jesus Christ. What power that gives us over Satan.....God's power to resurrect Jesus from the grave.

Sandra, we're promised that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. That means weapons WILL be formed against us. We're promised peace in the storm. That means we WILL endure storms. The Word has made it very clear: in this world we WILL have tribulation. We're not to worry, though, because Jesus has overcome the world! What hope and joy there is in knowing that Jesus endured every single temptation I will face and He overcame it, so He is able to help me overcome, too.

PINKSPARKLE1965, I always rejoice over the scripture where Jesus is saying He has not lost even one that the Father gave to Him. Isn't that awesome?!! No matter how many times I have fallen or strayed, He has held onto me and drawn me back to Himself, to His love, to His faithfulness.

I thought an infection was going to ruin my Christmas plans and that I would not be able to do anything about it on the holiday; so I got down on my knees and asked the Lord to take care of the problem...and He did. I was able to go out as planned and had no more problem for the rest of the day. God is so good!

I am thanking our God for the opportunity to be back here among you. I have missed you, dear friends. My attempts to become healthier and more fit are far less effective when I am not here with you, being inspired and challenged by you, walking this journey with you. Glory to God for all He is accomplishing within us as He makes us new from faith unto faith.

I am thankful that my grandmother is still with us.
First time we took her to rehab she had a mild heart attack.
Had to be put back in the hospital for two weeks.
Then she went to rehab for two more weeks.
PTL she is much better and was able to come home yesterday.
I hope that the rest of you are doing well. Have a good day.
Your sister and friend in Christ, Holly emoticon

After re- reading my post, I think I need to clarify....Friday night`s message was from Joshua, when Achan took the "booty" and bad things started to happen....I always skimmed over this cause...well..it just seemed sad and I admire Joshua so much that I just couldn`t wrap my head around all of it....but WOW did this speaker explain and really open my eyes! It was so very totally awesome! (made even better as I know the speaker personally and know his parents kicked him out of his house along with 2 younger sibs when he was 14. He took care of the sibs, did whatever to survive....He is uneducated, but what a very smart man. God is using him and he is obeying.....gives me chills to think of it all,he is not old either, in his early 40s)

Sorry....this could get wordy........
My husband planned a revival for the small church he pastors twice a month...board approved and we had it last Wed. Thurs. and Fri. nights. It was a huge success! We had 3 times attendance by Friday nigt that we had on Wed! (Wed night is the night several churches have services of their own, so attendance was less than 30)
On top of it all I was truly blessed by both the special music ( she sang " He`ll Do it Again") and the message was just totally awesome! and about something I had never dwelt much on, but he really opened my eyes! I was very pleased and the work involved was definitely worth it! Hubby & I agreed on that....don`t know what the congregation thought... I LOVED IT and was TRULY BLESSED!

Praising God today for sending us a buyer for our condo in Virginia. It's been a long almost three months that it was on the market, one ridiculous offer made a couple of weeks ago, but now God sent a fair, legitimate offer and buyer to us. It's been a real test to rest in Him and trust Him to continue providing for us, but He enabled us to do that...with some occasional fears interfering with that trust.

God, You are sooo good and Your mercies are new every morning! I want to give You the glory for the success of my daughter passing her entrance exams to begin taking college classes this Fall. Your Holy Spirit gave her focus, wisdom, endurance, and courage. She is a senior in high school but she'll be able to get college credit for 2 courses. Truly, as our day is, so shall our strength be. You make us more than conquerors and able to do all things through Christ! Thank You, Jesus. You forever more shall be the ROCK that I can safely stand upon.

This afternoon I prepared to go pick up a few groceries but couldn't find my ATM card. I searched the car but it wasn't there. I called the last place I had it but it hadn't been turned in. I thought, well, I'll just get some money from an ATM until, duh, I realized I couldn't do that without the card. I was ready to ask a neighbor if I could borrow a few dollars until tomorrow so I could get dog and cat food. Then, for some reason, I checked my wallet and the packet with that and other cards was there.

I remembered I had pulled out my insurance card for a lab blood test and put the card in my right front pocket where I keep the ATM and credit cards. I guess when I went to put the insurance card back in my wallet I grabbed the ATM card packet without realizing it.

I am so very grateful I didn't lose those cards and have to go through getting new ones and canceling accounts and that I was lead to check the wallet. Thank you, Lord. -- Lou

Praise the Lord for the Provision of Salvation, thank you Jesus for dying on Calvary's Cross for my sins so I could be forgiven and washed clean with Your precious Blood.

I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior on August 15, 1977.... My life has never been the same, I've walked with Jesus for 35 years....It has been the best life I could ever have. Yes, there have been trials and struggles but with everyone my Lord has carried me through, taking me by the hand and walking me through step by step. emoticon Jesus...

Let's Celebrate the Risen Savior.... Happy Easter Everyone...

That's a positive way of looking at it. emoticon I hate to admit it but in the past; I'd do most of my bible research when I was ill or too weak to do other things. But now, I love to read the Word and history books which talk about biblical history everyday. There is just so much stuff to learn...

Another car blessing today. I was on the Interstate going to a town 25 miles away when the "Service Engine Soon" light came on in the car, causing me worry as I hoped the car wouldn't break down. On the way home the light stayed on but I managed to get to my trustworthy mechanic who checked and found that a sensor had given an incorrect reading for some reason. Now the light is out and there is currently no problem with the car. I am so grateful it wasn't an expensive repair. -- Lou

Lou, an honest and compassionate mechanic is truly a gift from God. Bravo for your mechanic! It is my pleasure to give back to this team in any way. You, BIGDAD and our other team members bless my life in so many ways, on so many levels, every day. I hope the jostling of threads hasn't caused anyone to lose their way. I did not know about the Wal-Mart policy. That is GREAT news. I just know your new duds look great!

Hello all. I have several things for which I am grateful.

First is the enormous project Missy (YATMAMA) has agreed to take on in reorganizing the team site. It has taken and continues to take much of her time but she perseveres and, as we can see, the new layout brings common topics together, making it easier for us to find related posts. Thank you, Missy.

Second is about $250.00 I saved last week when a mechanic bypassed a small switch in my car's steering column to allow the ignition to shut off instead of installing a new one. It was nice to find such honesty and it will be a pleasure to find others I can refer to him. Thank you Darren in Orlando.

Third is Walmart's policy of allowing gift cards to keep their value, even over several years. While cleaning out the car's trunk, I found a card and learned it still was worth it's $10.00 face value, as was another one I had held on to but had forgotten. With those two gifts, I purchased three new polo type shirts for less than $12.00, an average of less than $4.00 each. A real bargain. Thank you Walmart.

And, for the above and the blessing of special people in my life, thank you, Lord.

Lou
