Ok, so I forgot yesterday was Wednesday the weigh in day.  I have been so busy this week I feel behind. I am enjoying my new life style. I have soooooo much energy. Someone asked me today how was I doing this. I told them it is GOD. He has given me the power to overcome temptation and a 20 plus year habit.

It takes renewing your mind on a daily basis. Sometimes more! He is faithful! You have to stay in the Word and agree with Him about what He says about you, and what He says to do to live the abundant life. I told my daughter earlier if will power alone could do it I would be a twig. I wouldn't have any problem overcoming temptation. But the only power is Holy Ghost power. With the fulfilling of the Holy Spirit I have all the power available to me to overcome!

So everyone is wondering what is the weight this week? I am happy to report that this week I lost a lot of fear that I had, I gained some new understanding in the Word of God, I lost the habit of snacking at night time. I did lose weight to. I now weigh 234. Praise God! He is so faithful.

Tomorrow I will post on some ways that He has gotten me through the difficult times. Love each and everyone of you. Keep praying, keep on pursuing your dreams. He is the dream maker.

Mothers Day

Proverbs 31:10 says "A capable, intelligent, and virtusous woman-who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls." My mother is more precious than anything to me. She is truly a gift from God.

Growing up in the military we didn't always have everything we wanted but my mother made sure we had everything we needed. I know that she wore the same Sunday dress for years to church. She learned how to sew so she could make us new clothes. We always had new clothes each year for school. One thing that stands out in my mind, we always had new PJ's.  This was so important to my mother!

She always ate the worst pieces of meat. The neck bone when she fried chicken. She never complained of having to eat this piece of meat. The rest of us always got our favorite piece. I have noted that since we have been grown and out on our on she has not eaten a neck bone.

My mother was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 1988. She was given 6 months at that time to live. But God healed her! Then again last year she was diagnosed with cancer again. Differrent type, very agressivie, fast growing! Again the doctors did not give her very long. Again God has healed her. Now both times my mother went through so much treatment. I know they were very hard on her. But she never complained. She took everything with such grace. She even started her own business through the first one. My mother is doing very well today!! As I was helping the boys shop for mothers day yesterday at Walmart I was looking at all the flowers and saw the ones you place in a cemetary and stopped and thanked God that I did not have to buy those kind!

I became a mother February 14, 1981. No that is not my first child's birthday but it is the day I found out I was pregnant.  Motherhood is an honor from God. A gift! I thank God that he chose me to be a mother. I feel really blessed. I have enjoyed being a mother. I had a very good example in my life.

So today as we honor our mothers everywhere remember to thank God for these mothers that He has blessed us with. Reflect on what a mother is. There is an old saying that says the hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.

I just want to say Thank You Momma. I love you so much. You are the most beautiful woman to me! I enjoy you. You are my best friend! So today and everyday I honor you. You did a fantastic job! You are an awesome mother!!

Call On Jesus!

When I call on Jesus all things are possible. I can mount on wings like eagles and soar. When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna fall. Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call!  I just love that song by Nicole C. Mullen.

I am telling you I had to do me some call'en today!  I was doing the Biggest Loser workout on my Wii and they had me do the downward facing dog. Well if you  have never done that, it is no easy task for a 236 pound woman. But I did it anyway. Then to make matters worse while you are in that position after what seems a looooooong time, they have you throw one leg up in the air. Seriously?? Well I thought  I was going to pass out! I started quoting scripture each time getting louder,  "I can do ALL things thru Christ who gives me strength."  " I CAN do ALL things thru Christ who gives me strength."  I said "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH!!! I CAN DO ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH." Then I started screaming really really loud "Come on Jesus, give me strength, give it to me, give it to me, give it to me now, I need it now." Boy I sure hope no one was looking in my window. Haha!

Well at the moment when I felt myself giving in it felt like someone grabed my one leg that was in the air and just held it.  I was overcome with words that I cannnot even express!  I called and He came. (probably had a legion of angels holding that one leg up) haha.

I always knew Jesus would come to my rescue but not while I was excising!! He definately came through for me today. He wants to be a part of every area of our lives. He wants to be there in the every day mundane, the 911 calls and then those peaceful moments at the end of the day when He just dances and sings over you as you drift off to sleep.

There is nothing or no one like My Jesus! He is truly walking every step of this journey with me. I am really comming to know what it means to have a relationship with Him. I am learning that He loves me no matter what.  I also am learning that He enjoys me and delights in me. Oh what a Savoir!

This journey has been hard but joyful! I have gained new insight regarding my Father God. He is so faithful. He is teaching me that I can trust Him 100% of the time and I do not have to lean on my own understanding but to lean on His Word.

I will admit that the scales have really tried to pull on me. My weight last week was such a disappointment.  I had worked so hard exercising and eating healthy. When I stepped on those scales I wanted to cry. But the Holy Spirit kept saying You can do all things thru Christ who gives you strength. I could feel the tug of the Holy Spirit on my life to not give up.  Satan wanted me to give up, throw in the towel and just eat my heart out!

I made the decision to listen to His (God's) voice and to continue to bring honor to Him with my food choices and exercising. The verse in Isaiah 40:31 says "But those who wait upon the Lord shall change and renew their strength and power, they shall lift their wings and mount up as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired." (Amplified) Oh how true that verse is. I have actually jogged and walked, alot! Instead of getting tired I gained energy I did not know I had. I let God minister to me thru this week and just ignored the scales. After all they don't know me like my God knows me.

Well I am so happy to report that I have a loss this week! I weigh 236!!  I will continue to honor God.  Not because of what the scales have said, but because of what He has said!

I am learning that the spirit man has to be strong.  I am the biggest giant in my life. I had to get delivered of myself.  I can't know myself after the flesh. As my pastor said "The key to ressurection power was Jesus willinginess to do what the Father asked."  When you are walking in the Word satan has no power to grasp you and keep you from succeding.
