I trust all is well! I’ve been praying and thinking about the direction of this blog; and have shifted focus just a little. In the past, I’ve posted primarily about fitness and wellness, homeschool/unschool, as well as faith. I will continue to post about fitness and wellness on both of my Good Thing Fitness blog and YouTube channel. Please do subscribe and share! This year, there will be more of a focus on faith, family/unschool and finances. I want YHWH/God to be at the center of everything that I do; because He alone is the source of every blessing in my life. I have faith in Him; because He pursued and fiercely loved me at the most difficult time in my life; and He has been faithful to His covenant with me. I have a family because of Him. When it looked like I would never have children, He proved otherwise. I am financially blessed, because of the principles of His word; and because He honored (and still is honoring) by desire to be a kingdom philanthropist.
So as this year gets underway, I speak a blessing over all of you, from Deuteronomy 30:8 & 9:
May you obey the Lord and follow after Him; and He make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
This week’s declaration is based on Mark 11:22 and is: I have YHWH/God’s faith. With so much upheaval going on in the world today; I think it’s important to remember that we are not powerless against these things. Yeshua/Jesus modeled how we are to operate in the earth. He spoke to a fig tree, storm, withered arms, and evil spirits ….and they all obeyed Him. In John 14:12, He said that those who believe in Him will do the same works and even greater. In this week’s video, not only do I share the weekly declaration and exercise demonstration; but also the story of the faith of my seven year old.
Continuing on in the mobility exercise series, I demonstrate two knee exercises. Click here for the demo. As always, have an excellent rest of your week; and the blessings of the Lord be upon you and your household.
This week’s declaration is based on Romans 12:19 and is: Vengeance is God’s. He will repay. As I look at the turmoil that is going on in our nation, I ask the following questions: What am I seeing? What is at the source of what I am seeing? What does the scripture say about what I am seeing? What does YHWH/God want me to do about what I am seeing? For every problem that we will ever encounter in life, YHWH/God has already provided a solution. I see it time and time again in scripture. If we look at the story of the Children of Israel, we see that they were enslaved, mistreated, and lived in anguish. However, when the vengeance of the Lord came; it all but wiped out Egypt; and if you read the account in the book of Jasher, you’ll see that one of the Pharoahs who treated them so harshly, was plagued with a flesh rotting disease for ten years, died, and was buried dishonorably. Trust YHWH/God that He has everything figured out; and we do not have to explode, destroy things and communities, or hurt people, because of a perceived injustice or weariness. No matter how unjust a situation might seem; allow YHWH/God…..the Judge, Lawgiver and King (Isaiah 33:22) to make a righteous ruling and enact vengeance. YHWH/God’s word far outweighs our perceptions, attitudes and emotions.
The mobility exercise of the week is hip circles. You’re going to stand up tall, with your feet about hip distance apart; and shoulders down away from your ears. You’re going to engage your core by pulling your navel into your spine. You’re going to soften your knees and then make circles below the waist with your pelvis. See a demonstration here. As always, have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll see you soon!
If we truly understood how our words impact our lives; we would only say what YHWH/God says. This is such a great post on this subject from Pure Glory.
by Apostle Gabriel Cross Recently, I was reading (Proverbs 6:2)”Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art caught by the words of your mouth.” The word snare means entrapped or barbed. Then the Holy Spirit began to show me some words of entrapment (inner vows) in my heart. One was, “here […]
This week’s declaration is based on Romans 8:31 and is: “Since God is for me, no one can stand up against me.” Be sure to meditate this word to strengthen your faith and possess your promised land.
The exercise of the week is a neck mobility exercise; which can improve the range of motion in the neck, as well as alleviate aches or pains in the neck area.
In this week’s video, I demonstrate the exercise; as well as Read Romans 8:31 – 39 MSG. I think these verses are a great reminder of God’s love for us; as our nation go through so much turmoil. God bless you! Have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll see you around the blog!
As I was sitting outside of the Music Academy yesterday, waiting for my son’s piano lesson to end, my attention was drawn to the Reserved Parking sign above. I thought about a prophecy that the Father had given to my husband and me more than a few years ago. What God said that He would do in our lives took a lot of faith. I remember driving in our downtown area one day; and I said to God: How can I believe you for that, when I can’t even believe for a parking space? It was at that moment that I knew that that would be my starting point for building and exercising my faith in His abilities. I had started to believe God for close parking spaces wherever I went. I wasn’t being lazy. I just had a bunch of small kids; so closer was better in my line of thinking. Every where I would go, I began to get close parking spaces. It didn’t matter if the place was packed. There was nearly ALWAYS a close parking space for me. It happened so regularly that other moms who went to the same programs that I took my children to, expected me to always be parked close.
As I focused on this sign, I began to see that because I am a citizen (or tenant) of the Kingdom of Heaven, there is ALWAYS a reserved parking space for me wherever I go. Earlier this week, I was thinking about how there have been a number of powerful and ruling kingdoms in the earth that have come and gone; but the Kingdom of Heaven, introduced to us by Yeshua, is the most powerful kingdom and it will forever stand (Daniel 2:44). Although our physical bodies live on the earth, our spirit man is seated in heavenly places with Yeshua Messiah (Ephesians 2:6). As people of God, it is of great benefit to live from and by our spirit; rather than by our physical senses. Remember that we are spirits with souls, that live in a body; which means we should be living from the inside out; and not the outside in.
Yesterday, I had loaded the kids into the car to take them to swim lessons. Well, my car didn’t move. The wheels spun around and around. I sat there and prayed. I then got out and looked under the tires; only to discover that there was a sheet of ice under them. I put sand under the tires; then got back in, to try and pull off. Nothing! The wheels continued to spin. After about 20 minutes of trying to figure out how to get this car to move, I asked the Holy Spirit. What do I do? I heard:” Speak to it.” I got out of the car. I pointed to my car and said: “In the name of Yeshua, I command you to back out gently.” I sat back in the car and waited a few minutes. I then put the car in reverse and pressed the gas. Nothing happened. I just started praising God; because I knew I heard His voice; and that the enemy was trying to bring doubt. I gently pressed on the gas; and the car went in reverse; and I was able to get the kids to swim lessons.
The previous night, I had been meditating on Mark 11:23 (NIV) – “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” An opportunity presented itself for me to apply the very thing that I’d been meditating on the night before. At that moment, that situation was a mountain to me. My husband wasn’t home; and neither was my very helpful neighbor. I just praise God for His wisdom and the trustworthiness of His word!
