Nature

Extra special thanks for your prayers and reassurances from my last post. I love you all dearly.  You know this life is FULL of ups and downs/ twists and turns. What makes the difference and helps us to bounce back from the downs/twists and turns is crying out to God for help and let me tell you...God IS faithful and He truly cares, hears and loves us.

The final topic that I'd like to talk about in our Spirit Health Series is the gift of Nature. Before I move on, I want to mention that I totally enjoyed these inspired posts. They have challenged me and continue to motivate me for a more solid, focused, goal directed spiritual life.  I hope you have been motivated and challenged for growth as well.  There is so much more that could be explored but we'll have occasional Spiritual Check ups every now and then in future posts.

Nature...

Let's explore nature and its impact on our physical and spiritual health. 

Did you know that that looking at green growing plants and trees h…

What a Week

I had a ROUGH week. I've been so disturbed I didn't even get to write and wrap up on the Spirit Health series as I intended to do this week.

God only you see and know all about it. You are omniscient, omnipresent the beginning and the end. The attacks I faced this week is too much. Why God? Is this a test? Is this a trial?  Is this an attack from principalities and powers you spoke about in your word?  Whatever the answer is I need your grace to sooth my heart/mind and soul.  Balm in Gilead, anoint me with your oil and give me what I stand in need of most.  Help me Jehovah, give me a heart that will forgive even when it seems so hard to do. Break every chain of oppression, control and attacks that the enemy of my has set up for me.  I am weak but you are Mighty. Almighty King help me to sing and Praise your name forever more.

Signs of the Times

Matthew 24: 3-14

Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?” Matthew 24:3 (NLT).

4 Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you,

6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.

7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes and plagues in many parts of the world.

8But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

9 “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.

10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.

11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.

12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.

13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved…

Cardio 'Pump It Up'

Greetings! I have missed my blog and reading yours for a week. I have some catching up to do. I attended a training/seminar for work last week called Crucial Conversations; It was excellent training on how to have healthy dialog about problems or situations that need to be addressed or worked out without withdrawing and becoming silent on the matter or take it to the other extreme of being violent which involves verbally attacking, accusing, insulting and/or being condescending. The training taught us several tools/techniques it was overall a great training.

So continuing our Spirit Health theme. How are you doing? I've had some ups and downs, triumphs and failures I have to keep focused and remember...A person's steps are made secure by the Lord when they delight in his way. Though they trip up, they won't be thrown down, because the Lord holds their hand: Psalms 37:23-24 (CEB).

Now to the topic for today, Cardio Exercise.  Cardio is exercise that gets your heart …

Your Presence is Heaven

Who is like You Lord in all the earth?
Matchless love and beauty, endless worth
Nothing in this world can satisfy
'Cause Jesus You're the cup that won't run dry

Your presence is heaven to me
Your presence is heaven to me
Treasure of my heart and of my soul
In my weakness you are merciful
Redeemer of my past and present wrongs
Holder of my future days to come

Your presence is heaven to me
Your presence is heaven to me...
