Faith and Food

Storms will come and go in this life. I have learned the hard way to endure and not be set back and when and if I fall, to get back up. This can apply to a lot of areas in a believers life. I never thought in a million years that I could also apply it to my eating habits. I do want to tell you that eating is not a sin. Unhealthy eating is a sin in my book.  I know its different for everyone and we are not in the same place.  I was one hundred pounds overweight and my physical health was at risk.  I have lost 61 pounds since August of this year and plan to get to my goal weight!!!

I never in my life thought that the way I view sin and the storms of my life would apply to me losing weight. My eating habits is one area of my life I have not allowed God to have complete control of. My weight has fluctuated through out my adult years. There is so much easy access to find foods with high carbohydrates, but very difficult to become carb conscious, but I am living proof that it is possible. Go…

Satan HATES you!!!

Image
I do know this fact to be the truth, satan hates your guts unless you are a devout follower of him ruling over  and controlling your life. Even then, because of your choice of rebellion and disobedience to GOD, you want to burn with him in the lake of fire forever and ever??? It will not be a big party in hell. You WILL BE IN AGONY beyond any human feeling. All you will be able to do is scream out of your pain and misery. Because you were tricked to hate as satan hates. You chose to be haters!

For he that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and he will be my son.  But the fearful and  unbelieving and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.  Revelations 21:7-9

 IF you are a born again Spirit-filled believer in Jesus Christ, you are filled with THE HOLY SPIRIT, who is righteousness and goodness and truth inside of y…

You are God's Handiwork!!

The last thing we need to do is give up on God when things get rough and tough. I know that some of you are thinking, "Well I know this already!"
But not all of us are on the same path and maybe need to hear what I am saying. My prayer is that this post points you in the right direction and that is to the Cross of Jesus Christ.  I know at one point I had to ask myself these tough questions.   I am talking to those who don't know, that satan has lied to and told them that they will never measure up to the the man or woman they should be in Christ Jesus.
The last thing we need to do is turn our back on God and go our own way instead of His.  Why do we do it then? Why do we decide to go it alone?  Why do we put up walls even with God and think we can survive in this world that He created?   We need to depend on Him all the more than ever. 
I don't want to get sucked into the things of the world.  The Word of God says that satan is the god of this world, and sin and strife …

Are You A Mountain Mover??

Image
A lot of you may know or not, but I am on a health kick. I have lost 50 pounds since August 15 plus I took up a 9 week running program called "Couch 2 5K."   I found out that they have a app on the iPhone. I downloaded it and started seven weeks ago with interval walking/jogging for 30 minutes.  Now on week 7 I am slow jogging for 25 minutes. It is supposed to train you for a 5K race which now that I see I can jog, I hopefully can add a 5K to my bucket list.

I see these areas of my life as mountains that I have finally taken the initiative to remove them from my life.  I am 120 pounds overweight and haven't did regular exercise like this since I was 18 years old...I will be 55 on December 31.   It all boils down to your perspective on things.  For many years when I lived in isolation I allowed things to die in my life. I lost the will to have a productive and healthy life. I threw in the towel and surrendered to a life destined to die at any minute.  I  just didn't c…

I will Enter His Gates...

What makes the season bright with joy in childlike wonder and peace?  For some of us its the most depressing time of  year. I believe what they say about depression and all, and I am a firm believer in taking medicine. In a day when doom and gloom attempt to attack us, I wonder if as we get older our attitude is not part of the issue.

Don't get me wrong...I believe many of us do struggle with seasonal depression. I just wonder if a lot of it affects us as much as we say?  It's okay to miss relatives and reminisce of times when they were alive. But are we actually trying to unearth the graves of our dearly departed ones in our grieving season in the midst of the joy of celebrating the birth of Jesus? "If they were here would it really affect your attitude?" Would that make you really and truly happy?

I know for me there was a time in my own life when a gloomy spell affected my whole attitude. It was if it followed me wherever I went. I had lost my will to live. I am …

It's All about The Grace!!

Image
We need a deep awakening of God's grace...a fresh infilling...a new perspective of the reality of God's merciful divine favor. I tell you that we can experience all that Jesus experienced here on this earth and even more.

We can experience all He is now where He is seated on the right hand of the Father.  We can take ahold of that authority and position our lives as kings and priests of the Most High God of heaven and earth.
God's grace goes beyond the surface of any situation. For it reaches deep within into our very soul and makes a heart of stone into a soft and submitted heart. He can soften the hardest part and our Almighty Potter can mold us and make us after His will. Are you ready for that grace? Its not hard to find.
That grace goes beyond the veil and leads us through to the intimacy of the mercy seat, where God Almighty dwells cleansing and enabling us to see with His eyes through the spirit of humility. We need to spend some time in the holy place where God a…

Update 11-11-2018

Hey dear readers,  I just wanted to give you a update. I have two books(actually 3 books) in the making. One is a devotional book, one is short stories and the other is a book of poems I have wrote over the years. They will be very short books so far not over 25 pages for each one. I'm not looking to make a buck by a long short I just have a desire to make a difference in other peoples life and this is the only avenue where the door has opened for me to express my heart.

Self publishing is very tough for me, I just cannot get past or grasp some of the steps it takes to publish. I will have to have outside help to proof and publish them and I just am not financially able to pay someone at this point.  So please pray that I am able to financially pay them in God's timing.  I got the manuscripts ready all they need to be is to put them in book format.

These books will be very different from my first book. I felt the need to write my first book to get my story out in print. I thank …
