My 3rd chemo treatment

Thursday, September 08, 2011

Went to the doctor today, I have to see her before I go to my chemo treatment for examination everything went well she is very pleased with my progress and she has given me the green light to WORK OUT!! Im so excited because Ive gained a little weight since all this has happened and I dont want to gain anymore. Even though the chemo has a steroid in it that makes you gain weight Im going to do everything I can not to let my weight get out of control Ive worked to hard to get to where Im at...I have this saying that I say to my clients all the time.


The Lord has taught me this in everything I go through in my life to be determined especially in the story of Nehemiah..I love this account it really inspired me.

DETERMINED: You Can Make a Difference in Tough Situations God is looking for people who will make a difference in the difficult places of life! People with vision who see possibilities, not problems People with courage who will finish the job People with faith who believe God can use them Nehemiah was that kind of person.He was a layman called by God to give Jerusalem a new beginning. In spite of opposition, Nehemiah stayed on the job and saw the holy city restored. Nehemiah was a successful leader who teachers us: How to encourage others to serve the Lord How to detect and defeat the enemy's tactics How to keep going when the going is tough How to make prayer a vital part of your life Satan is tearing things down in this world, but Jesus Christ is building things up. For which one are you working? No matter how difficult the situation may be, get acquainted with Nehemiah and learn how to Be Determined!

DEDICATION: To be dedicated to all things in my life to not let anyone or the things of this world allow me to not fall or to fail to be dedicated to what the Lord has set before me and to always move forward no matter what storms Im facing, to always keep my focus on Jesus, to be dedicated in his word, pray and fasting..This is how the Lord has shown me to be successful.

Disciplined: In all things, Im not going to lie this is hard but I have found that being disciplined in the things of the Lord to alway put him first, to keep my mind on things above and not on things of this world to deter me from his will for my life. The Lord tells us in

Romans 12:1-5
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

For me, this is what my life is all about to not be conformed to this world but to keep it renewed daily through his word, to allow the Holy Spirit to counsel me, to teach me and to be sensitive and obedient to his voice so I can continually walk in the will of my Heavenly Father. To praise his name no matter how hard it is, its through praising his name where I find comfort peace and joy..Its hard as Ive said but Oh the benefits of praising his name, to watch the Lord move in my life through praising his name, to see feel him drawing me in ever so close, closer than I ever thought I could be to him I live for my Jesus what does the apostle Paul tell us:

Philippians 1:21
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

This is what I strive for to live for Christ and him alone..Im so humbled and grateful for his faithfulness to me as I go through this strom he strengthens me everyday and I love my Jesus with everything I am. So as I write this to all of you who read it my hearts desire for all of you is that you draw closer to the Lord, to live for Jesus everyday, to always make time for him..All that he has done for us and to think what is waiting for us when we all meet him face to face...How I long for that day, how I long to bow before him, how I long to say Jesus I LOVE YOU with all my heart mind and soul..How I long to spend eternity with him and with all of you my brothers and sisters...I love you all so much I am exteremely blessed by all of you and I lift you all up in prayer everyday..Many blessings to all of you with much much LOVE.


Jesus first

    I have been waiting for this, been looking too, but I see I am a little late. I love you so much and I miss you so!!! Your love for Jesus lifts me up! emoticon I was thinking about what you wrote today (although I had not read your blog yet, however our thoughts were the same) while I was reading some verses I quote each day. Then while I was talking to my sister on the phone she was crying and I started to praise God to lift her up. I know He touched her spirit during our phone call. My live has been blessed by God and he blessed my life the day he made you! I love you with all my heart. I thank God for what He has done in my life, and I thank God for what He continues to do in yours. love love, and more love!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you all for taking the time to come by and my blog I am doing so well I cant believe it sometimes. As I sit in my chemo chair watching the chemo go through my body and feeling so good afterwards is truly Jesus taking care of me and watching over me. I so appreciate all of you I know I say it alot but its because its true all of you bring tears to my eyes as I read your posts of your love and support of me through all of this and I know its Jesus surrounding me through all of you.

    What an AWESOME SAVIOR WE SERVE!! Bring Glory to his name everyday he is so deserving of it. Im in LOVE WITH JESUS!! not for what he does for me but just for who he is. My prayer is that everyone I come in contact with will learn who Jesus is and his love for all of us. He is truly remarkable there are no words to describe him all I can do is offer my life up to him and be a mighty servant and the woman of God he created me to be. He is God and we were made for him, to serve him, to worship him and to love him as much as he loves us. I stand in AWE!! everyday of who he is and what he is doing in my life.

    My dear sweet Sister,
    Thank you for this post. I've just finished my morning time with Jesus and picked up my computer to pack it up for school. I decided to quickly log in to SP and 'spin' for the day and change my status. Of course, I thought, I wonder if Carol blogged last night. So I had to check. And here you are. I want to tell you again how your words to me inspired me to always take the first few minutes of the day (even if they are few) to put "Jesus first". I've always been the type of person to think I have to be 'perfect'. The Lord has shown me through the years that my heart is already 'perfect' towards Him. As Joyce Meyer says, "I'm a human 'being', not a human 'doing'. I'm continuing to learn to just rest in Him. He's already provided every thing I need. I have to depend on Him. He is working tremendously in my job. Even though it is still VERY hard, I can rest and be confident that HE will work it all out.
    Thank you so much for your faithfulness to inspire us all with your life and your words. You are such a sweet witness for the power and love of Jesus.
    Again, I love you, my sweet Sister in the Lord.
    I will be stay,
    BR>and Disciplined,
    Love you!

    I have often heard people speak of how JESUS carried them through a difficult life storm, such as the one you are facing, and I stand in awe of HIM every time I think about how HE does walk through it with us, and actually carry us when we grow weary!! You are making HIM proud by the way you stand strong, refuse to buckle, and defeat the enemy daily!! I know that JESUS is just as proud of you as you are of HIM, because you are following HIS lead, and trusting in GODs promises!!

    Much love to you and many continued prayers go up for you!!
