Why switching to a Biblical based diet worked for me?

In the last few years, so many things have changed for me inside and out.  My perspective I think has had the greatest change in my life.  I think through my seeking God to help me, trusting in Him and be grateful in the moment has revealed lots.  What I think has become more than just a habit but a lifestyle change for me is eating a Biblical based diet.  Through Bible study and my own, I have researched in the great instruction book for life, the Bible.  Where all questions are answered. So, when people ask what should I be eating, drinking, shaking you can take it back to the Word.  God has something to say on that subject and I promise you Hot Pockets is not on it...

Living the GF Life

faithfueledfeature

Okay, guys! I may be going all into living this gluten free life.  Seven months ago I was tested for my allergies and among the seasonal allergies that I already knew of wheat and peas was one of the allergic reactions I had.  When I was in my teens, I had an allergy test with the same results but didn’t think anything of it. When I was 16, I didn’t care about my allergies and until that day didn’t realize the effect of ignoring my allergy had on my body.  I used to say regularly, “My stomach hates me,” after every meal.  I would get horrible headaches, itchy scratchy throat, constant post nasal drip always clearing my throat.  I always associated the throat and nasal to my known indoor/outdoor allergies.  I never thought it could be from the things I was eating...

Honor My Temple Prayer Challenge Day 30 (Final Day)

Today’s Prayer: Help keep me balanced as I continue this journey.

We made it!!! 30 days of honoring our temple through prayer. There have been hi’s and lo’s (at least for me there has) but overall I feel that I have created a stronger relationship with God that will only continue to grow from here. I have learned where my strengths lie and His never ends. I have never felt so good mentally, spiritually, and physically. It’s been an amazing experience. I am so grateful for all the messages, emails and all those who supported me and held me accountable on this journey.

Proverbs 11:1 A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, But a just weight is His delight.

Mostly, I have learned that when I feel off balanced and not on steady ground that I need to put my burdens in His hand and m...

Honor My Temple Prayer Challenge Day 28

Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Today’s Prayer: Help me to renew our strength in you everyday.

This verse is one of my favorites.  I have used it in so many different circumstances but it holds true in ant and all. Especially, with honoring my temple. This month there has been constant temptation weddings,birthday parties,mom’s night out,  women bible studies but through His renewed strength everyday I have made it through.

This challenge and month is almost over. I wouldn’t have gotten through without the daily renewal of strength through prayer. I have made a complete lifestyle change that won’t last without continued strength from God.

How d...

Honor My Temple Prayer Challenge Day 27

Today’ prayer: Help us to want more of you Lord.

Psalm 63: 1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

Our relationship with God is dependent on what we put into it. He has already come 90% it’s up to us to come the other 10%; He doesn’t require much. When I started devoting time to the Lord every day, it changed me in so many ways. I went from needing God in my life to wanting Him, craving time with Him every day. Like a first love talking on the phone, I can easily get lost talking to God for hours about everything, including my health. Put some time into your relationship with God, give Him your all, make Him priority in your life and crave Him.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you...

Honor Our Temple Prayer Challenge Day 22

Day 22

Today’s Prayer: Give me supportive people in my circle of influence.

Proverbs 13:20 Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffer harm.

This Honor, Your Temple prayer journey, is almost over, and we need to pull out all of our resources and tools to finish strong.  The people in our life matter and we need to ask God to choose the right one for us. About a year ago, I had to make some change. I had to have my outside reflect my inside and get rid of people who didn’t fit. Here I am again making changes but this time for my desire to be in the best spiritual and physical shape of my life. Again, I need to surround myself with those like-minded people..

Put into Practice

Back in September, FaithFueledMom had our monthly Diva Night, which we usually get to...

Honor My Temple Prayer Challenge Day 19

Day 19

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me

Today’s Prayer:  Help me to give myself grace during setbacks or mistakes.

We can show other’s grace, not always, but we cannot give ourselves the same. Setbacks are going to happen we will fall from grace, but God forgives us for much more than having a cookie or skipping a workout. We should do the same. According to the word, we should boast about it.  When we boast about our weakness we can show the power of God.

I was reading Nehemiah 9, and the Israelites were confessing their sins to God...

Happy 1 Year Anniversary

1 Year Anniversary.

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.”-Anonymous

It has officially been 365 days! Today, one year ago I woke up, and I had enough! Enough excuses, enough regret, enough neglect, enough believing the lies of the enemy.  I woke up, and I said I must change now! The week before I had dabbled in a fitness routine.  It felt great but today last year I wanted to do more than just dabble. I wanted to commit. I wanted to commit to a healthy lifestyle.  Now, if you have been following me along the last year, you know that this is not my first weight loss journey. So, what was so different this time around? I did it before so what’s the big deal.  All the times before I was seeking weight loss for vanity reasons...

Honor Your Temple Prayer Challenge Day 4

Day 4

Today’s prayer is: Give us time in our day to make a healthy lifestyle, a priority.

Sit down and think of your daily priorities. On that list where does your health come in, number 4, 5, prayerfully not 10th on the list. Do you carve out at least 20-30 minutes to be active? Do you have to stop at a fast food restaurant because you didn’t think of how or what you were going to eat until you were famished and your hangry buttons were being pushed? You are worth so much more than that. Sometimes you have to take time out of your day whether its the day before or the day of to think of these things. It doesn’t have to be hours, you don’t have to make a major grocery shopping run and then meal prep for hours to eat healthy...

Honor Your Temple Prayer Challenge Day 3

Day 3

Today’s prayer is: Give me provision for all tools I need to honor our temple.

God will provide

When I first started this weight loss journey we were not in a financially stable place. I didn’t have enough money to go out and buy weights, resistance bands. I was stretching the budget to feed our family of five and then to add some additional health foods seemed daunting. I took my struggles, worries and concerns to prayer. In every area God found a way to provide. We aren’t control of these things we can try to figure out a way but He already has one. All we must do is ask for His provision, His guidance and His lead and He will find a way.

If you don’t have the right equipment ask God in prayer, if you don’t have the “right” food pray to God to help you to acquire the right foo...
