Video: How To Pray

A Simple Daily Prayer

Holy Spirit move through all our hearts.

Move in the hearts of those sick and hurting.
Move in the hearts of those in hospital beds and waiting rooms.
Move in the hearts of our nations leaders, our children’s schools, our marriages, our families and our friendships.

You are a God of peace, order and unity not anger, chaos and division.

Your word says, “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that my Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:13-14 As long as our prayers our in alignment with your will Heavenly Father it will be done. Thank you Lord.

Lord, I pray in the name of Jesus for a movement of love and peace, a love that is found through Jesus Christ alone. I’m praying for millions of salvations worldwide and an unquenchable thirst for your holy word, to know it, believe it and live it. Holy Spirit fill us each and every day. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Politics + Social Media = Love {and a BOOK GIVEAWAY!}

Have you been struggling with all the negativity in social media around politics?

It literally makes me feel every possible emotion within seconds! Angry, mad, sad, happy, excited, hopefully, discouraged, disgusted … basically crazy.

The other week after the women’s march the very next morning I woke up asking how can I make a difference? My heart’s desire is to be like Jesus and sincerely love all people through compassion. But how do I honestly live this out each day with so much pain in the world, I questioned? Before I opened my bible I asked God to show me what to do and this is the scripture that spoke to my soul.

“The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:7-8

I thought, in order for me to be clear minded I must not fill my mind with negativity. And to be self controlled I must not remain in situations that influence me to make poor decisions. To truly love others deeply I must stay connected to God through intentional prayer. So last week instead of reading social media I used that time to read God’s word and pray for ALL people.

To be honest with you this stretched me. It was hard for me not to turn to social media to find out the latest update on all the drama in the world. However, by the end of the week I realized how much peace I felt.

I felt lighter. Less stressed. More patient. Simply hopeful.

Hopeful because I know that no matter how different our opinions are in this life, God is ultimately in control. I am confident there is no need to fear because the battle is already won. Victory is on my side no matter what political party I stand for. Jesus wins! I can rest in pure love.

So when I hop back on social media, I have decided to look at it through God’s eyes … LOVE. When I feel the opposite arise in me, I will simply hit the off button and pray. It is time to live out what I believe, not by merely reading God’s word but doing God’s word. God’s word is a very clear and detailed on how I must love others and while it’s not a piece of cake to implement, I can do it!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Holy Spirit I pray for you to do a work in my heart so that I can make a difference. Give me strength to choose your ways over my ways. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Get Off the Crazy Cycle of Emotionally Eating

girlinfieldWe were sitting around the table enjoying a cup of coffee talking about how this is the year we will finally STOP. EMOTIONALLY. EATING.

My girlfriends and I have battled this just about our entire lives, so how in the world will we truly STOP. EMOTIONALLY. EATING this time? How will this year be any different than last? How can we honestly live a balanced healthy lifestyle?

Have you dealt with this struggle? Have you had the same conversations? Have you dreamed of the day you will not run to the pizza, soda, ice cream (fill in the blank with your favorite comfort foods) for relief?

Well I wish I could wave a magic wand for us and ZAP! emotional eating would disappear forever, but you and I know there’s no such thing. Boohoo 🙁

Over the last seven years (since cancer) I’ve learned a lot about myself, especially around my body, my emotions and my health. I tried every type of eating plan under the sun. From spiritual fast, 40 day juice fast, 14 day juice fast, diet programs such as the Hallelujah Diet, Isagenix, Weight Watchers, Whole30, Paleo, eating support groups …. gosh I know I’m forgetting some but you’ve got the picture. No matter how successful I was during any particular plan or program I participated in (often with the all or nothing mindset to boot!), I would eventually fall off the wagon at some point and go back to the same crazy cycle of emotionally eating.

Does this sound familiar to you?

Oh and forget the self-talk that would go on in my mind! “You’re never going to be good enough, you never follow through, just start over Monday, but I’m sure you’ll fail again.” Negative. Negative. Negative.

Well that wasn’t productive in the least! Beating myself up only tore me down more and caused me to be even more self-destructive.

Fast-forward to today, January 2017. How does a person STOP. EMOTIONALLY. EATING you might ask? While I don’t do it seamlessly I can honestly say it begins with 3 simple words: acceptance, accountability and action.

First by accepting I will not do everything perfectly has freed me from the all or nothing mentality. And secondly by receiving that I am accountable to God for how I take care of my health and that I was created to take action (to get moving!) for a greater purpose than just focusing on how I look has been the greatest revelation for my personal healthy lifestyle transformation. I now live within the ebbs and flows of life, not beating myself up anymore for lack of perfection. Each day is a new beginning and fresh start to love myself by nurturing the body God gave me. I really do love my life! And I love sharing this with my Healthy Lifestyle Coaching clients.

I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Have you ever struggled with emotionally eating?
