God's really 'got' this!

                           How has life with it's UPS & DOWNS, taught you?
Well, better way to put it; have we learned through the lessons God teaches us through the storms and sunny days? It's important isn't it? For our sanity, health, peace and even for others. 

--- Ok - so we are wading through sewage backed up. 
Brad is digging this all up by hand (have to wait till Julie comes to use a backhoe). Looks like a complete plumbing job (ha with no pay $...but the payback is being able to ...use our facilities). Then, there is the car- our wonderful car God paid for. She is sick; old blueberry has transmissions problems. Beyond my dh's methods to fix it (as he usually does) Cost looks like a couple thous. 

Now, just a couple years ago...My dh was seriously ill; well, was told he was dying. No income, vehicle (then) trials etc... THEN & NOW -- Where do we go? To the ROCK ...MY FIRM FOUNDATION! 

When I say; "God's got this!" HE DOES --- We have such peace He will supply all our needs (no work as of late), He gives us strength & even joy. SERVING HIM is more about's life flowing out of us to all around...HIS LIFE! May others see Jesus in the real struggles that do come & See Jesus when Blessings flow! To God be the glory!

Matthew 7:24-27
"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

I write this to only inspire others who basically feel there is no hope in trying to loose weight.
That is a LIE! God is One True Amazing God, that when we lay our burdens in His Hands...He will be faithful to complete it!!!
Phil. 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:"

Like many woman with hormonal imbalances...GALORE, and health issues that were strange (due to chronic lymes) battle to loose weight was a loosing one.

I am grateful to my husband who loved me in spite of how bad I believed I looked. He proved the Love God places in a marriage founded on the Rock: Christ Jesus, runs far deeper than the physical.

I am a 5'0 petite woman, when weight started piling on; it turned me from an hour glass to a ball shape.

I found when driving, I struggled breathing for I had to be folded up, cutting off my diaphragm.

Bending down to put on my shoes...well, I didn't. I had to have my kids help me. I never would allow my picture to be taken, I was so ashamed.

I was pre-diabetic, my joints were failing me. I finally got to the place where enough was enough...I surrendered this to my God. Literally, I just threw myself at His Feet - letting go and asking for Him to take complete control: And that He did! For me, He used a book written by 2 sisters...who are 'sold-out' to Jesus. They worked diligently for over 5 years researching and putting the book: TRIM HEALTHY MAMA together.

I had heard some good reports about it, and started researching. Immediately, I felt the 'pull' to purchase the book and the rest is history.

I was into a size 18...the biggest this 5 foot tall girl has ever been in. I usually stayed in a 14 for about 15 years. My size should be about a 5. Yet, here I was and well... goodness gracious!

We took it slowly at first, this lasted two weeks. Then, I filled up a couple large black trash bags full of pastas, flours, tortilla chips and anything that was sugar laden. I donated it to others (although inside I felt bad doing that to them).

Temptation left the building!

We went to 'town-and-back' on all the recipes in the book. I slowly acclimated to the stevia in my coffee as my taste buds changed. The entire family has changed!

Once a month we have a 'blow-it' and it is ice cream or a donut. Yet, anymore; we are not liking how we feel when we eat gluten or sugar. We are truly SATISFIED with meals with fruits, veggies, good protein, also using coconut & almond and so on. 

For example; tonight I made zucchini brownies, made with coconut flour, almond flour and stevia etc... It was amazing! Plus, knowing these components are GOOD FOR ME; I feel we are finally getting the philosophy of ;'Eat to live, not live to eat.' 

I will try to post more about my weight loss journey; yet if you have any questions, I sure would be happy to help out. Now, I still have a very long way to go. I am in my 50's, and fight the lovely hormone battle (which has greatly improved), + deal with serious problems with my joints. Still, it is coming off and I am very grateful.

Here are our stat's:
*Brad (52 yr. old): 235 lbs   to  180 lbs Size 38 waist to 32
*Daneille (51 yr. old): 40lbs lost.  Size 18 to Size 10
*Felecia (17 yr. old): Size 10 to Size 4
*Tabitha (13 yr. old) Size 7 to Size 0,1

Lovely sunset this evening with all the yellow, pink and even purple colors; it was all so serene. God knew I needed to embrace such beauty, He does that.

As I was sulking, He pointed me to His Majesty causing me to look up and thus: Praise Him.

Then, He said- "My child, I do care about your pains...but when your tears become more about the Lost Souls of Man...then; even you shall see how You have grown more to be like Me."

"I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh." (Romans 9:1-3).

The first time I saw this banner my own father drew many years ago, my heart sunk into my stomach. My husband, Brad and I were just starting the Pastorate ministry. I had grown-up in a Pastor's home, and saw this .....

FAMILY HARMONY needed for stability + strength; correct?
YES! Unity in our country...(oh Lord bring it),
Unity in our places of worship (i.e.-the church) and
 Unity within our families.
Our families are the foundation for this world. God created family; husband and wife, and the children:
 ALL to be ONE with Him as the foundation.
Even as our children grow to be adults; unity within the immediate family is vital.
 The enemy will always try to throw a weapon of offence, affliction OF SEVERERING away.
Notice it early...anything, any word, any action, any persons - combat this with prayer, communication, then prayer again together and strive for love & unification.
NOTHING I say it again:
NOTHING ELSE is more important! 

 1 John 4:7 - "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." 
John 17:21 " That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me."

Recently I was floundering around, mulling in my heart a personal ‘Calvary’ that I was feeling. It felt as if someone was using a spade: digging deep into my heart. I begged for God to take care of this situation; which presently, is something I have not yet faced before.

During my tearful plea, I heard HIM; it was as if He literally bent down and looked deep within my eyes as His voice rang ‘so’ clear and defined, when He (with sternness) told me: “I GOT THIS!” My Jesus, told me (in His authoritative voice): “When I bring the walls down, I flatten them!” 

Instantly; like a little girl, held tightly by the strong arms of her father; I felt calm and assured. I am presently staying right there too…right in the arms of my all powerful God; with the affirmation that; “All is Well!” No matter what it still looks like to my weak little heart; I declare that my Jesus’ – well, He’s got this!

Is. 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”

Psalm 37: 23, 24 “Though (if) he falls, he will not be utterly cast down (completely destroyed, at a loss) for the Lord upholds him with His hand."

Isaiah 41:13 "For I the Lord thy God will hold your right hand, saying unto you, Fear not, I will help you."
