''LET THERE BE LIGHT.''

GENESIS 1: 3

''And God said, 'Let there be light': and there was light."


LIGHT-----Something that makes vision possible, truth, a particular illumination,

I picked these definitions because they were what I am talking about today.


I have read over all of my posts since I first began this blog. I was amazed at the process of the "light" on this subject that has been given to me, as I have studyed God's word. Studying the things that would help me to lose weight the way God would have me to. I truly found that as I ask for "light" He has given me more and more.

LUKE 11:9

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

I have asked and as I sought, I have found the answers. The way is gradually being open to me and I am so thankful. I realize that this is just like anything else, I am capable of sinning even after knowing the truth. But it will not be God's fault. The blame will be entirely mine. He has given me "light" now it is up to me, if I make use of the knowledge that I have gained. I know without doubt, if I keep God in His right place then I will do what is right. If I have no other gODS before the God of heaven then I will stay on the right path. I pray that those of you that read this blog, have gained some "light" along with me. The journey will not be easy. There are those out there who have others things in their lives that can be a stumbling block that to me might not even register. Food to me is a stumbling block that will trip me if I do not keep my eyes on the Lord. I am praying for all of you and I would ask you to please do the same for me. I wish for you a "light" filled day. connie

Connie,
You look fabulous!!! Great job and what motivation, thanks!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Tori,
Thank you so much. When I get down to 200 lbs, I will post another picture. I weigh 221 now so it may take a while. I thought maybe the pictures would encourage someone when they see how I had abused my body and the promise I have that if I do not put other gODS before my GOD then I will be doing it His way and I will be pleasing to Him in the way I have done it and the results will be because of what He has done for me. Still praying. connie

That was a great reminder, Connie. I need to keep my eyes on the Lord and remember the light he has given me.

Also, I would like to thank you for praying for me. I really believe that you do, and you're not just saying it; and that means a lot to me. I will pray for you as well!

Dear Connie, Just visiting this blog...you are beautiful....I know God will give you victory...I have gotten so careless with eating candy and it has begun to show. Its hard to take off weight even if its a few pounds. I need to start making smoothies and drinking them instead of reaching for all the left-over Christmas candies. A friend who is a Bible teacher once said....'the farther you get away from God the harder it is to get back'...for me, that applies to every part of my life. May the Lord use your post to encourage many...meaning me too! love you!...Maggie Ann p.s. I need to take off 8! Its the mindset of giving in thats sinking me deeper in the whold with those pounds. My skirts are lonely without me...but my jumpers are very content...sad, eh...

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Maggie Ann,lol My jumpers are very content also. Thank you for your comments. I pray that you can get the lbs off before they mount up and cause you health problems. love you, connie

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Kim SC., I am so glad you find this site helpful and I am glad that you are walking with me and He shed light on the Way. Yes, if we do anything it will be through Him because I have tried so many years doing it my way. connie
