Philippians 4:7 -“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Once you truly give your heart to Him, you will finally find the peace you so desire. 🙏❤️
James 4:7 -“So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
God always gives us a way out of our temptations; it’s up to humble ourselves enough to recognize it…
DO YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF the above question? Why not me? The subject matter relating to that question could be on a range of subjects; Career, Family, Faith, but for me its for something different and maybe you can relate; my weight…
I haven’t always been heavy; when I was a kid I was relatively normal when it came to my weight. In fact, once I got through those awkward teenage years, I looked pretty good. That really was a miracle though because my Mother nor my Father cooked so pretty much my whole childhood was Burger King, McDonalds, or Wendy’s for dinner. The only time I got a somewhat healthy dinner was when I would visit my Grandparents house. Even then though it wasn’t really healthy, just not a bunch of processed junk.
So fast forward to today; as I sit here I weigh a pathetic 385 pounds. I just stopped doing the Keto thing because all it was doing was making me sick and I wasn’t losing anything anyway. One thing I have definitely noticed is that at the ripe old age of 47, losing weight has become much more difficult. There was a time where I could just cut out the crap foods and the weight would fall off; not so much any more.
People tell me all the time; “You just have to want it bad enough!” Well let me tell you, I do. I don’t enjoy looking like a walking watermelon and having every day be in pain all over. I try to hide the pain I’m in but even there I am starting to fail.
I watch these videos where people have lost tremendous amounts of weight, and for a brief moment I will get motivated, then I fall back again. So I ask myself this morning; why not me? Why is it that I always lose the motivation to keep going? Is it because of my love of the taste of food? Is it something else? I don’t know, but the frustration level has reached new heights. I am almost at the point of just saying; “Just forget it David, you’ll always be fat and probably die of a heart attack”. Trust me though, that is NOT what I want…
Friends, I told you there would be days where what I write would not be very motivational; today is one of those days. I just needed to write my feelings out as maybe that will help. Something has to give, that is all I know. For this I place it all in God’s hands and whatever happens will happen.
Thanks for reading everyone,
Psalms 34:18 -“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
God grieves with you today and is ready to repair your broken heart. Give the suffering your feeling to Him; ask Him to heal your soul. ❤️
SO IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE OF WEEKS since I wrote a longer post. It has been a busy time but today I had something so strong on my heart, I knew I had to share it. I pray you are ready to receive this…..
The last few months has been a series of wins for the Pro-Life movement; many states have adopted what is called the Heartbeat Bill which eliminates abortions after a heartbeat is detected or like Alabama a complete ban on abortions; even making it a felony charge to the person performing it. These are great strides in the effort to turn over Roe Vs. Wade and I fully expect this trend to continue. We will have more wins and I would go as far as saying it would not surprise me at all if Roe Vs.Wade is turned over in the next few years.
So where is the danger you ask? Well, I have said for a while that the Enemy knows his time is short so he will be doing everything in his limited power to hurt and destroy us. Well, not only is his time short but its about 1 minute to midnight…
The danger comes in where, well, let me put it like this; have you ever seen an animal when he has been attacked and is fighting for his life? It can get pretty ugly; so it will be here soon with our Enemy. You can already see the demonic possessions taking place all over the country with the sick, vile things being said and done to each other. People throwing children from 5 stories up in a mall, suicide rates higher than ever before, evil twisted lifestyles that if we don’t accept we are labeled as haters, the list goes on and on. But friends, it will get worse…much worse…
A war is coming, a war that will end all wars because it is not just flesh and bones but a spiritual war of the magnitude that has never been seen before. My question for all of you is are you ready? Have you truly given your life to Jesus Christ and have put on His armor of protection? If you haven’t you will not survive this war and the eternal judgment getting ready to be carried out on the world. Soon, very soon I believe, true persecution of God’s people is about to begin in this country. Do you have the protection necessary to endure this time?
Please friends, make that commitment today if you never have before; its not too late but soon it will be. Choose this day whom you will serve and be protected by the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!
Ephesians 6:10 -“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
We live in some dark times my friends but know that God is still in control and we can always rely on Him to get us through to the other side, Amen?
Proverbs 3:7 -“Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil.”
Don’t ever think you have it all figured out. Be reachable and always turn to God for the answers. Happy Friday everyone!
