(This post is not about weight loss or counseling, but due to a request from a dear blog friend. She writes about life from the other side of the world and keeps her identity hidden. But you can check out her blog: https://susieshy45.wordpress.com
Lord, my friend asks, “How do you hear from God?” What do I tell her?
Tell her to listen for My quiet voice of love spoken deep within her heart. Listen for My words calling her name. Tell her to answer, “Lord, here I am,” and I will speak to her heart. I am calling her now. Tell her I never yell or scream. Tell her to listen for the still quiet voice. Tell her that I love her more than she’ll ever know.Continue reading Hearing From God (Not Just My Weight Loss Counselor)
Lord, what is Your will concerning this blog? What do You want me to do with it? I’m so discouraged. Is there something I can do? Do I go back to the way it was so I can just write and not worry about the tech mechanics? Do I just give up? Continue reading Trust
1. Having granddaughters with me in church. They sat quietly too. 2. I was able to precook lunch, get myself and two little girls ready for church, and arrived on time. Wow! Miracles happen everyday. 3. Watching Hubby play his guitar on stage with church orchestra. 4. It threatened to rain out church event at the park, but it only sprinkled a little. 5. Watching granddaughters play at the park. 6.Visiting with friends and family.
Lord, I know I weighed first thing this morning, but I’m thinking about getting on these scales again before I eat breakfast? Maybe the numbers went down. I want to see. What do You think? Continue reading Lying scales, No Weight Loss
Notice: Please read important message at the end. Thank you.
Router died. Called AT&T. New router arriving in four days. No internet. Bad tech day. I’m going to scream! Lord, help me.
Memorial Day family cookout with hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, salad, and peach cobbler. Lord, I want to eat everything, especially dessert in frustration over dead router. But I’m too busy preparing food and serving others. I don’t have time to overeat. This is a weight loss blog, I can’t overeat. Thank you Lord for helping me resist temptation. Good victory day.

Driving down the dark country road following GPS directions, I wondered . . .
It’s almost 8:30 and too late for supper. Do I stop at a fast food place down the highway? I’m not hungry, but I do need to eat something. Earlier I considered fasting this meal? Hmmm . . . It might help me lose some weight. Lord, what do I do?
I unknowingly posted about a “Spirit Animal” Blog Award. My dear friend, Rachel informed me, “There is no such thing as a spirit animal. Only the Holy Spirit can abide in us if we ask him too. He is all the wisdom we need.:)”
So true Rachel. Thank you for the reminder. I went back and made the necessary changes. The Holy Spirit (Lord) is what delivered me from obesity (over 90 pounds) and I don’t want to hurt His feelings. I owe all that I am to the Lord, Holy Spirit. I appreciate Rachel helping me realize my error. Isn’t that what true friends are for, to help us along the way.
Chape at http://chapeblog.wordpress.com sent me the Spirit Animal award. She’s a personal trainer who encourages you to get up off the sofa and do something, anything. She has a playlist of music to move your body. Wow! How did she do that? Check out her blog for more inspiration. Very motivating.
Sometimes life’s just too funny. So go ahead, laugh. You know God has a sense of humor. Sometimes I think I hear Him laughing, not at me, but with me. Since He has plans for our lives and works out all things for our good, maybe He knew I needed to laugh more. Maybe you do too. So go ahead, laugh. Continue reading Go Ahead, Laugh
Several blog friends have sent me different awards over the last few months and I’ve been very slow in responding. Dear friends, I treasure each award. You honor me and I appreciate your love. I humbly ask your forgiveness.
Now I want to grant each and every one of you an award with some kisses too. But I’m changing the rules. . .
If you read my blog, thank you. If you make comments, I appreciate it. If you share or re-blog my posts, I think I love you.
So help yourself to an award too. Just mention my blog link as a favor. You may answer the award questions if you wish. If your schedule is full like mine, just help yourself to the award without answering questions. Enjoy the fact that you are loved and I want to award you.
