....but for a moment

Tears of frustration and disappointment ...but for a moment! Cried out to God this morning! Don't understand! BUT GOD! He spoke so sweetly. He encouraged me and led me to the "place" I needed to be...to hear what He was saying. "Don't quit." "Speak the Word; take it as medicine." "You can do all things through Christ." "Speak to the mountain." And then He sent me a very special "love" note in the form of a beautiful bluebird...just like He did over 30 something years ago and still does whenever I need to "hear" it. He loves me! He loves me!
I will not quit! I will not look at the circumstances! I will do what I know to do and STAND!
Thank You dearest Father God...I love You.....


The Dr.'s visit went okay...not too excited about what I have to do but it could be worse! Hate being labeled..."you will always be..." but am giving that part to God.

Still eating healthy...had part of a diet drink but didn't enjoy so poured it out! Have 4 months to bring about a change and my goal is to come off the two meds I'm on and NOT have to go on any other med! My weight goal is to lose 50 pounds and as much as possible in the 4 months!

The voice of the enemy, ol' "chatterbox" as Pastor Stephen Furtick says, keeps bombarding me but I keep on speaking the Word and going about my business!

I see myself as succeeding in this endeavor!

Never the same again!

Wow! Haven't blogged in a long time! Just wanted to today even though no one but me will read it! It's like a journal for me during this season!

This week I received some not-too-terrific news concerning my blood work. Spoke with my Physician's assistant who wanted to immediately put me on meds. I'm not real fond of taking meds and she knows this. Am already on a couple that I want to get off of. I asked her if I could have some time to "fix" this. After a pause, she said she would give me 3 or 4 months. (I'm going for the 4)
I do have to go in and talk with her next week but I've already begun my life changing eating!

I know the Lord is with me, strengthening me and cheering me on! With Him I can do anything!

I began Tuesday after the phone call! (Had already had two pieces of Ezekiel bread with 3 pieces of Neeses' delicious sausage which I probably will never eat again!)

I'm eating veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds and drinking water. Do have my morning coffee after a glass of lemon water but off the cream! Have already begun to lose some weight! And I'm walking!

Not really missing the meat either! Know this is God working in me! :)

Will continue to journal my new adventure....
