& continue to lose til I get to my goal weight.

    I want to share this poem with my spark friends!

    Help Me Not Cheat

    Dear God,
    I don't like that word "cheat"!
    How ridiculous of me
    to think that I can somehow get ahead
    by committing fraud against myself.
    Show me if there is a problem
    in my approach to dieting
    that makes cheating seem worthwhile.
    If so, I want to change that, Lord.
    I want to feel clean and whole
    and honest through and through.
    I don't want to cheat myself
    or others or You.
    Today I pray to hunger for integrity
    in my deepest being.
    May I automatically reject the idea
    of dishonesty in any form,
    be it little white lies, secret binges,
    or false flattery from others.
    I want to be reliable and
    honest with little things
    so that You might trust me
    with the big things.
    But I need Your help.
    You are "the way and the truth
    and the life" (John 14:6),
    and I'm counting on You. Amen.

    I'm stopping by to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
    Let's leave behind the old year and old patterns that have set us back and push forward towards our goals with success and determination.
    Numbers 6 :24 `May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.
    May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
    May the Lord show you his favor
    and give you his peace.'

    i thought you would enjoy this .

    Job 22:28 says Decree a thing and it shall be established.
    God's word never comes back empty.
    When it is spoken the very angels of heaven go forth to accomplish God's word.
    I encourage you to read this Prayer outloud .
    Speak forth God's word even if you don't feel like
    your accomplishing what is being spoken.

    Try it God is going to give you strength!

    This prayer is for strength

    I am strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
    I put on the full Armour of God. In Christ i can do ALL things, because he strengthens me.
    The Lord is my strength and my shield. My heart trust in him and I am helped.
    Therefore my heart exalts God and with my song I shall thank him.
    He is my strength and my saving defense in times of trouble. The grace of the Lord Jesus
    is with my spirit.
    I build myself up in the most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. As I do this I keep myself strongin the Love of God. My God keeps me from falling.and presents me faultless and blameless in the presence of my Heavenly Father with exceeding great joy.
    My help comes from the Lord who made the heaven and the earth. He will not allow my foot to slip, and he who keeps me does not sleep The Lord is my keeper. The Lord is the shade on my right hand.the sun doesnot smite me by day, or the moon by night.
    The Lord protects me from ALL evil. He gaurds my soul, and my going out and my coming in, from this time forth and forever .
    When i pass through the valley of weeping, the Lord makes it a spring for me.
    I go from Strength to strength in the Lord
    The Lord God is a sun and sheild to me.
    He gives me grace and Glory and no good thing will he withold from me.
    I am blessed because i trust him.
    My Heavenly Father grants unto me , according to the riches of his glory , the ability to be strengthened with Power through his Spirit in my inner man,so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. I being rooted and grounded in Love can comprehend with all beleivers the breadth and length and heighth and depth and to know the Love of Christ
    Lord help me to be filled up with your Love to the very fullness.
    I do not Lose heart in doing good!
    In due time i will reap if i don't faint.
    My eyes are of single vision, focused on you God.
    Therefore my whole being is full of light.
    I am steadfast immovable and always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that all i do for the Lord is not in vain.
    God is my strong fortress and he sets me in HIS way.
    I thank him for straight paths.
    By Him, I can overun my enemies and leap over a wall or any obstacle.
    He is a sheild, because I take refuge in him he sets me feet on high places.
    He trains my hands for battle so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
    ( I love that part many times he will equip me to handle great times of distress that takes extra strength) He has given me the sheild of his salvation, and His help and strength makes me great. I can pursue and destroy my enemies because the Lord has girded me with strength for the battle. The Lord gives me strength when i am weary, and when I lack might he increases power. I wait on the Lord and renew my strength. I mount up with wings like eagles.I run and I do not get tired or overwhelmed.I continue to walk and not give up.
