Delay is Not Denial

 I was trying to watch an episode of TBN's "Praise the Lord" online yesterday. My computer kept freezing during my attempt but one of the guests on the show was giving their testimony and said something that stuck with me, "Delay is not Denial". Those words  have struck a chord with me!

I have been feeling stuck because I want to write but can never find the time to do it. I also want to study for this test to get my certification to teach but every time I sit down with the book something happens and I have to stop. I find myself getting frustrated because I feel like things are not happening fast enough.I knew the Lord was speaking to me when I heard those words, "Delay is not Denial".. I need to be more patient. Just because things are not happening in my timetable does not mean they are not going to happen!

This reminder came at the perfect time. I just have to remember that God's promises will come true in His time. Things may be delayed but it doesn't mean they won't happen. God is not saying No, He is just saying wait. So from now on I will remember these words whenever I start to feel frustrated with myself... "Delay is Not Denial!"

Thankful Thursdays

I haven't been keeping up with my memes but I am going to try and be better about this. I thought this Thursday was an appropriate time to do a Thankful Thursday post.

This year has started out really tough for a lot of people in my family. There has been sickness and some other just really crazy things happening to the people I love. But in all of this I have to be thankful that I serve a God who is faithful. I know that as we go through this period of unrest in my family that I can turn to God in prayer. I can hand it all over to Him and know that he hears me and comforts me.

I am also very thankful for the news I just got from my Mom. Earlier this week we found out they might be closing the local hospital my Dad and brother work at. Me and my Mom have been praying for this not to happen and today we got the news that they voted to keep the hospital open! Praise God!

One Weigh at a Time- Week 2

One Weigh at a Time

I'm a day late with my weigh in! I was 185.6 last week. This week I am at 186.1 so a slight gain of 0.4 pounds. 

My weight loss tip for this week is to keep a food journal! You can do it on paper on or online. To do it online check out sites like , or . These are all free to use! They help you track calories, set goals and some have free meal plans. Food journaling works because you get a visual of what you are eating each day and it holds you accountable. It also helps you plan ahead. When I was successful at weight loss I would plan what I was going to eat ahead of time and write it in the journal and most times I stuck to it!

Good luck everyone! If you want to join us please visit !
