Hi all ..
I love to watch Joyce Meyers she is just so me .. Today she said again we have to know who we are in Christ .. so much of my life .. I served God but many times I have back
slide and ran .. People say its easy to be a Born again Christian not so .. or at least not so for me . It gets easier .. I think the key is to cast every burden on Christ ..
don't try to carry the load .. you will become .. so burdened you cant move .. I never dealt with my past until of late .. I just swept everything under a rug .. and I have a
past and im not perfect by far .. even now .. I know God has told me to not eat my evening meal .. It is so strange .. I can fast for days .. but it is so hard to give up
one meal . I think that goes back to my all or nothing mentality I have been letting God change .. I don't want my will anymore .. I want his .. but I covet your prayers this
is not a easy thing for me .. I know who I am and I am learning I don't have to be strong I have to lean on the one who is .. God .. As I let my past go .. I am moving on ..
I see the Future as bright and I know what God wants for my life .. I am so thankful that God .. changed me ..Sometimes I feel like a alien .. lol I have been told im different
and Im glad .. I don't want to blend in .. I want to follow God and walk like Jesus told us to walk .. I have no Idea how much longer I have on the earth .. But I want to keep
pressing to Finish with .. Well done my daughter .. you are Blessed .. lets be a Blessing to someone today .. love Betty

    If you say, this is what I am doing for now, it make sit easier. It does't always mean you will do this for life.

    I know the plans I have for you to give you a hope and a future. Can't remember the reference and it is not an exact quote. Remember it is all under the blood. Jesus has forgiven and forgotten it. Satan is the one trying to bind you with it again. You are free in Christ. Put on that Praise music and concentrate on the one that loves you.

    Try spending the time you would be eating your evening meal in prayer and Bible study, just as if you were fasting before the Lord. That way you are eating the Word and not food, but it becomes your food.

    Praying for you!

    That is what our journey with the Lord is all about! Giving Him control, no one said it would be easy! Remember His yoke is the easy one, He is willing to carry our yoke, we just have to hand it over! I pray that you can do this, please pray that I can too!
    Knowing what to do is easier than doing it! It is just like here,one small step at a time, imagine God giving you a emoticon each step of the way to surrendering your burdens completely!

    I too am one of those "I can do it myself" people and I am slowly learning to let go. It's hard to do. It's hard to let go and give it to God. But we can do it.

    I often try to carry everything on my shoulders, I have to remind myself that I have to take my problems to GOD, emoticon

    Some times God has a plan that will happen We will have our branches pruned by God to make us be whot he wants and then we start bit by bit see the light the way of God not so much focused on our wants and our daily life,
