His Likeness

Prayer taken from - A Book of Prayer (365 Prayers for victorious living) By Stormie Omartian

Lord, change me into the likeness of Christ

Lord, I want to be changed, and I pray those changes begin today. I know I can't change myself in any way that is significant or lasting, but by the transforming power of Your Holy Spirit all things are possible. Grant me, according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with might through Your Spirit in my inner being [Ephesians 3:16]. I know that You will supply all that I need according to Your riches in Christ Jesus [Philippians 4:19]. Help me to become separate from the world without becoming isolated from it. May Your love manifested in me be a witness of Your greatness.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. - Galatians 2:20

You're Worth It!

Finish Strong

Hello Journey Mates,

As the month of September winds down, I wanted to encourage everyone to stay focused with your fitness goals. The summer is officially over and many of us are looking forward to the holiday season! We will spend precious time with family and friends that we hold dear, and while we're creating all of those lasting memories many of us will be stuffing our faces with all of the homemade goodies!

While it's wonderful to gather with our loved ones, we must acknowledge the fact that all of those extra goodies will lead to extra pounds if we're not careful. Every year many of us eat until our hearts are more than content; pies, cakes, baked macaroni & cheese and everything in between.

Then, just like a vapor the holiday season is over and spring will knock at our doors, and we'll answer, but with an additional 5-10 pounds...
This season do something different! CHANGE!!!

Let's purpose to stay on track with our fitness goals, Let's choose to cook and eat a little healthier. When spring knocks at our doors, not only we will open them with joy, but we won't have any feelings of regret because we need to lose weight, due to our extra yummy holiday season.

Here are a few tips to help keep you on track :)

  1. Set Goals: Setting specific goals to accomplish specific eating and exercise habits are an important first step because they establish the direction and outcomes you want.
  2. Select Activities: Plan specific activities and fitness programs that you will engage in throughout the rest of the year to keep yourself fit. Plan to take walks during lunch or small breaks, park at the end of the parking lot at the grocery store, schedule workout/fitness times for yourself throughout the week .
  3. Plan Meals: Plan your meals and find ways to modify your existing recipes to make them healthier! Small changes have huge results. Use less sugar, salt or butter. Drink water instead of soda, snack on fruit instead of chips, or bake or broil meats instead of frying them etc.
If you make the smallest of changes, I can guarantee that you'll have an outcome that is reward worthy; a healthier you! Spring 2012 can be spent thinking about how wonderful the summer will be and what you'll be wearing to the beach!

God's Goodness - Happy Autumn

The Way


“ ‘...how can we know the way?’ Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’ ”
(John 14:5–6, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When you know Jesus, you know the Way!

No matter what you are facing today, no matter what challenges or obstacles are in your life, He will make a way for you even when you don’t see how. God loves you so much that He wants to strengthen and empower you to live in total victory. That’s why He sent His Son, Jesus, to this earth — to show you the way to live an abundant life! Open your heart today and receive all that God has given you through Jesus. His is the way, and He made a way for you to live in victory in every area of your life!


Father in heaven, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to show me the way. I receive Your truth and commit my heart to You. I invite You into every area of my being and choose to follow You all the days of my life, in Jesus’ name! Amen.
