Grow Beautiful Thoughts

Our thoughts are so important! They can determine how your day can go. The bible says to take EVERY thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). That means that I have a chance to do something about negative thoughts. You may ask, how do I take a thought captive? Well, this will take a few seconds of action. You take a thought captive with another thought using God’s word. God’s word is alive and will defeat any situation. When you read God’s word, you are replacing those bad thoughts with truth. Soon, your thoughts are remembering what the word said about the situation.

EXAMPLE: Let’s say you get angry and that puts you in a bad mood. You can go to the bible and search scripture about anger. James 1:19-20. “So then, my beloved, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

Other scriptures: Psalms 34;14, Colossians 3:15, Ecclesiastes 10:14

Take every thought captive

There is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1;9.

The Virtuous Woman

Did you know one of the hebrew meanings of a ‘virtuous woman’ is cha-yil. Cha-yil has a military overtone. It means might, bravery, success. She is more than a homemaker, she is a warrior! The Proverbs 31 woman is shown actively doing productive things. She works with her hands, engages in trade “like the merchant’s ships,” and oversees workers in her household (Prov. 31:13-16, 19, 22, 24). She’s not full of anxiety because she has confidence in her ability to care for her business and family (Prov. 31:18, 21, 27). She does her husband good and not evil all the days of life. Proverbs 31:12 Read Proverbs 31 again to see the strong, brave, and successful woman, not the frail, stay-at-home woman.

You as a woman are far better than rubies!

Happy National Brownie Day!!

Happy National Brownie Day!

The legend of the brownie originated in 1893. Bertha Palmer, a prominent Chicago socialite whose husband owed a hotel, asked a pastry chef for a cake-like dessert suitable for ladies attending the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition that could be included in boxed lunches and wa-la the brownie was created.

The Chocolatier is a sweet read that will melt well with the chocolate goodie!

You Deserve Happiness!

 

You deserve HAPPINESS!
Let me say that again. You deserve HAPPINESS!
Yes, there are things that bombard us every day. Kids crying tugging on your sleeve, something breaks down, you’re late for work and life seems like a never-ending battle. But I say the battle is yours. The outcome of every situation can be positive or negative. Choose positive. You’re probably scratching your head right about now thinking, whaaat?

young-woman-2622725_960_720[1]

 
I want to give you a word of encouragement today that hopefully will brighten your day.
We all go through things but the way we handle them is up to us. Choose happiness instead of gloom. The battle isn’t yours it’s God’s. Cast your cares upon HIM and let him take care of it.
You may say I actually don’t know how to do that, then let me help.
1. Ask (pray) Him to come into your heart and cleanse it.
You’re probably saying, I’m already saved. Whether you accepted him years ago or just recently, life isn’t perfect, and we all fall short. We should ask for forgiveness every day that way nothing is in between you and him. You’ll feel better.
2. Read the bible daily.
By reading daily, it builds your faith and belief. The word is alive. It will guide and instruct you, but you have to read and study it.
Think of reading the bible as a relationship. When you’re in a relationship with someone you spend time with them learning their likes and dislikes. What makes them laugh and what makes them cry. You love getting to know them. So, by spending time reading the bible you learn and this brings happiness.
Download a bible app on your phone then let it read to you if you’re running short on time.
3. Believe that He loves you.
This is so important. With most of us, it’s hard to escape our past. We have a mindset that we can’t be loved, or we don’t deserve to be loved. But His love has no boundary’s or depth. He is love.
4. Now, cast your cares on Him. He doesn’t want you to carry the burden any longer. When you do this, you feel a relief. A relief that brings a smile to your face.
Why do I say you deserve Happiness, well because the bible says so?
Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with JOY (Happiness) and peace as you trust in him so that you OVERFLOW with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Coffee

Friday’s Fitness = Holiday’s Fashion!

Are you sick and tired of being tired and sluggish? Don’t like the way you feel or the way extra pounds that says Hi every time you look in the mirror? And, you know you won’t stick with or can’t workout. Then, this coffee is for you. Exercise in a cup!
I have been drinking this coffee and love the way I look and feel. I had heart valve replacement a couple of years ago and gained over 30lbs in the hospital. I did loose some of it when I came home but not all of it. When you’re used to being one size and can’t seem to reach that weight anymore, it charges all types of emotions.
A friend of mine introduced me to this Smart Coffee and it changed my life. I believe in this product. I’ve lost 16lbs so far and feel great. That’s why I want to introduce you it.
With the Holiday’s fast approaching, YOU could be at your idea weight for the Holiday’s!
Looking GREAT! Feeling GREAT! Enjoying GREAT!

Other benefits to this coffee are energy and mental clarity which was something I didn’t expect until I noticed the change in my thinking. Weight loss is only one of the benefits of drinking the coffee or chocolate. This smart coffee works with your body to produce and balance your own bodies hormones making you feel more positive. It doesn’t make you feel weird or dopey. You find yourself laughing at the smaller things in life, letting go of little annoyances that once irritated you.
The Natural Hormones
Dopamine —> the reward hormone.
That feeling (oomph) you get from eating chocolate when you’re stressed or when a bunch of people leave you a great review… that is dopamine.
Oxytocin —> the bonding hormone.
The first time you saw your sweetie and you drew in a breath releasing it slowly knowing he/she had to be yours. Or, held your baby for the first time and hearing the cooing he or she gave you.
Serotonin —> the great regulator.
Serotonin helps regulate mood, social behavior, appetite, desire, sleep, memory… Did I mention sleep?
Endorphins —> the relief hormone.
This is the good stuff that your body produces to relieve stress and pain. It can also make you feel euphoric (without the worry about addiction or overdose!) Ever heard of a runner’s high? That would be endorphins at work.
Are you ready for your exercise in a cup! Looking Holidayriffic! You’re going to LOVE it!
