12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

Transformation Not Resolutions

Several years ago, I read that 85% of folks abandon their resolutions each year. That’s when I decided that I wanted my the long-term goal to be Romans 1 Transformation in every area of my life, even my relationship with food. Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” That’s what I’m talkin’ about. That’s my desire!

It’s often easier to believe that God can provide for us with our finances, comfort us in our grief, and even counsel us in relationships, but we easily give up on calling on Him when it comes to our eating. His desire is to help us. We read in Psalms 46:1-2, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.” Like the folks who think that the roof will cave in if they show up in church, you might think that if you lost weight, the mountains may fall into the sea! I assure you, God is bigger than that.

 My Living Life Lean Workshop doesn’t tout a particular weight loss product or program.  My goal for the weekend is to dispel myths and inspire new habits. All weekend long we will be talking about HEALTHY ATTITUDES that inspire WINNING BEHAVIORS and foster RESILIENT CONVICTION to help you be the best You that You can be! And I can help you deal with the stinkin’ thinkin’ that keeps you returning to the cookie jar for comfort. I have a few spaces left.
