Have Faith For Where You Want To Go!

Have you thought about this before? Have faith for where you want to go! This means you have to see it and believe it first! God tells us to have faith in Him. I believe this is because we are so limited by what we can do ourselves, but we serve a God that is limitless!

So if you want to be healthy, see yourself healthy first! Ask God for a vision of where you can go and what healthy looks like for you? Check out one of my former blogs for a more in depth look at that subject! Ask God for clean motives and a pure heart in what your asking.

James 3:16 “For where envy and self seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.”    This is where we have to be willing to see our own heart. If you ask for the Lord to shine his light then He will show you! I believe this scripture in James exposes why so many of us can’t seem to make headway in the area of health and fitness,” our motives.”

If we truly believe that our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit then this should be motivation enough to take care of our bodies! 1 Corinthians 6:20 ” For you were bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods. Of course this is for those who are “In Christ” those that have made Jesus Christ the Lord of their life.

When I see there are areas of my heart that are not pure I repent and ask the Lord to cleanse me with the blood of Jesus. Then I ask for a pure heart and to not make this an idol. I have in fact at times put too much emphasis on this area and had to repent for that as well. Faith is not a way to get everything we want, but rather a way to get what God wants! Believe me, we want what God wants, because He is perfect in all His ways.

Ask for Faith to get where you want to go, but ask God to align your heart with His to pray His perfect will. I believe that God wants you to see yourself healthy and whole based on scripture.

James 5:15& 16 ” And the prayer of FAITH shall save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up, And if he has committed sins they will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses one to another, and pray for one another that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

I believe true health begins with a relationship with Jesus Christ and is based on so much more than what we see. The more we seek God, His truth and His word the more revelation that will come. Then this will stir up the faith to get where we want to go.

My prayer today is that everyone reading this blog would come to know Jesus and His great love for us! When we receive His love we can begin to walk into a personal relationship that can change our lives if we allow it. Take us Lord to a deeper faith in you. That you alone Jesus would be glorified in all we say and do, including taking care of our bodies in Jesus name, Amen!

To your health,

Encouragement For My Friends

Encouragement For My friends

I am dedicating this blog to a group of women who I am walking within this season, but it is encouragement for all!

This area of health and wellness is a marathon, not a sprint! This has been a struggle off and on throughout my life. I have battled with gluttony (overeating), emotional or stress eating, and cravings for foods that are not healthy!

This has been an area that I have had to pray through and ask for grace from God to get a hold of. My heart is to help others overcome and experience abundant life in every area including your health.

This takes discipline and self control and is not always easy. When we try it in our own strength, some days it works and others not so much. Motives can be wrong and feelings can be fickle.

You may say, “Today I am going to start eating healthy” until someone shows up with a hot, glazed donut. Then you might say, “Well, I don’t want to hurt their feelings, and I can just start tomorrow.” If you have ever thought this way, then this post is for you!

The problem with this is once we eat the sugary food, we usually begin craving more of it. It quickly becomes a downward spiral. We get blood sugar spikes,  crash, and then are still hungry. We did not give our body the nourishment it needs, which is kind of the point of eating, isn’t it? LOL. It’s not for just personal satisfaction.

So if we allow our feelings to dictate what we eat, then this journey will be like a roller coaster, up one minute and down the next! I know this from experience.

One thing I had to learn in this journey with helping others–along with struggling personally–is to commit this to God and to call on His grace to overcome.

As I was praying for my sisters, I felt a prompting inside to join hand in hand and walk with you. The Bible tells us there is no greater love than a man who will lay down His life for His friends. I know in this context, it is what Jesus has done for us, but we can apply this to our everyday lives in all aspects.

So, whenever I feel emotionally stirred to grab something to eat to fulfill a need, then I am going to choose to stop and and pray for strength in this area. I believe as we pray for others, friends, that you will also be able to recieve His strength.

I challenge you to do the same! You never know where this may lead or who you may encourage in the journey!

Whether you are tempted to overeat, to eat what does not nourish, or to use food to try to fill a need, that you choose to stop and pray. Philippians 4:13 tells us we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength so I thank you that my friend can lean on you Jesus and your strength would be made perfect in her weakness, Amen!
