May the Force Be With You

 

IMG_0709 Which way will you choose, the dark side or the side of the light?

   Choose Me and your future will be bright. I will teach you the way of the light. Then you will use the light, My light to spread forth My power for others. I am the Almighty Force. I am the Way.

Partake of My Spirit and you will reflect My glory. My child, you have heard, “May the force be with you.” I am the Force. Seek Me, the eternal Force and I will IMG_3585bring you strength and power. Use it for the good side. Use My force and My power to bring forth My will. When the Force is with you (My Power), then your future is unlimited. There is no limit for I am the Force. Go forth in My power.

I AM, therefore you will be.

Your light saber, your sword is My Word. Use My Word to defeat your enemies, the enemies of your soul and the enemies of your future. Eat of My Word and you will be full. Fill yourself with My Spirit and the Force will be with you. Speak the language I give to you and they will hear. My glory will come.

Lord, thank you for those encouraging words. Help me to always look to You. I want to see Your glory.

Words of the Force

. . .  open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me. Acts 26:18
 
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” Mark 9:23
So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20
 
So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. Luke 17:6

starlight-blogger-award

I’m Afraid

This is what 10 pounds looks like. My friend, Donna said, “Feel how heavy this is. This is what 10 pounds feels like. Imagine this on your body.”

Lord, today is weigh-day and I’m afraid. What if I’ve eaten too much? I know there were times when I got too full. I am afraid of what those scales might say.

My child, as you look to Me, I will lead you. I did not give you this fear. Why do you let this box with numbers rule your life? Trust Me. All of your struggles have been because of lack of trust.

When You were confronted by the problems and struggles of life, you ran to food for comfort.

When you felt hurt, rejected, or disappointed in others, you ran to food for love.

When you worried over your needs, finances, or the needs of others, you ran to food for peace. True peace never comes from food.

Know ye not that I have come to give you abundant life, peace, love, and joy unspeakable?

If only you would run to Me, the One that loves you beyond your comprehension, instead the idol of pleasant pleasure food. Then you would find yourself walking in the freedom of My love. My freedom brings peace, joy, wisdom, and abundant life.

The idol of pleasure food brings entrapment. It brings damage to your body, but the worst is that it brings defeat and shame to your soul. I want My children to walk in victory, not defeat. I have come to set you free. Can you believe that?

Now don’t worry or be afraid of those scales. don’t look for your confirmation of success from numbers on a box. Look to My Presence for your success. I AM your success.

As you yield yourself to Me, I will grant you increase, not increase in body size, but increase in My love and power. I will increase My power within you to give you the ability to say “No” when necessary and “Yes” to My will.

I will increase My love within you so it will spill over to others and they can be filled with My joy as well, for I am the one true joy. Tell them to come to Me, for I AM the One true source of joy, peace, and love.

Yes Sir. Thank you Sir. I give myself to thee, do with me as You will. Help me to obey You in all things.

_________________WOW!_______________

Stood on the scales,

WOW!  91 pounds gone forever!

Thank you Lord.

Who Did It?

20130411-094416.jpgLord, I want to say I lost 91 pounds.

Why?

So I can say I did it.

You did it?

Uh- No Lord, You did it. You delivered me from this 87 pounds. But what about this last 4 pounds, so I can say I lost 91 pounds? Continue reading Who Did It?

They Lied To Me!

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 NKJV

_____________________________________________________

Lord, they lied to me and I repeated it. I thought it was the truth. Now what do I do? I’m disappointed, frustrated, confused, and embarrassed. I told everyone what they said and it was a lie. Continue reading They Lied To Me!

SHE GOT KICKED OUT

IMG_3471
The Old Chair

Lord, I just want to thank you for helping me kick that heavy woman out of my house. I couldn’t have done it without your help. I needed a lot of strength to get rid of her and You provided all that I needed.

This large woman liked to flirt with my hubby. She wanted to sit in his lap but wouldn’t because her heaviness would squash his legs and he couldn’t breathe. So she’d sit on the arm of his chair to flirt. One time she sat on the arm of his easy chair and she broke it. You could feel the broken board under the blue material. Continue reading SHE GOT KICKED OUT

Happy Thankgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Tomorrow will be a great day! You will succeed! Don’t be intimidated by that table. All things in moderation, just eat half. You can do this, you can. Don’t be anxious. Know that God will provide the strength you need.

“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’ Numbers 6:24-26

Lord, help each one feel the Presence of Your love tomorrow. Bond families together in Your love. Let us focus on our thankfulness to You and each other, not the food on the table. Fill our spirits with Your love, amen.
LOVE TO YOU ALL!

WATER FOR LIFE

 

IMG_3198.JPG
THE SKIN TEST

Lord, I don’t like water. It’s so boring. I love drinks with fizz, coffee with cream, and southern ice tea. Now I have a bladder infection, the doctor says I’m dehydrated and need more water.

I asked her opinion about a skin test. (If you pinch up the skin on your hand and it stays pinched up then you’re dehydrated.)  She confirmed the test was correct.

I thought maybe this was  just extra skin due to my weight loss. (64 lbs.)  “Could my skin just be loose like that of an old hound dog?” Continue reading WATER FOR LIFE
