I love Jesus and am looking for a way to be obedient to Him by taking care of His temple so I can do His work for His glory!

I recently returned to SparkPeople because I need the tools and the companionship to supplement my walk with the Lord. Glad to be back, I have missed you all!

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
    -Geneen Roth
