The Summer Digestion Plan

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy.
To do nothing and have itcount for something.
To lie in the grass and count the stars.
To sit on a branch and study the clouds.

Hey Guys,

Summer is in the air and you know what that means…parties, games, swimming at the beach, amusement parks and barbeques that last late into the night.

While we’re dreaming of filling ourselves with savory goodness and sweet delicacies, lets not forget our digestive systems and all the work it will need to do to rid itself of such wonderful blissful waste.

Here are some tips for improving and maintaining your digestive health: Continue reading

Confessions of a (Married) Night Owl

Happy Thursday!!!

So I have a confession to make…I’m a night owl.

Personally I had always been fine with that. I’d stay up into the wee hours of the morning watching movies and then sleep until noon, sometimes 1pm. Upon awakening I would lounge in the bed, eventually get something to eat, do what I needed to do then start the same routine all over again. Ahh the life! Or so I thought.

Fast forward to 2008. God blessed me to marry one of the greatest men in the world. He’s everything I never knew wanted. I say this because I hadn’t planned on being married, but thank God that He sees and knows what is best for us, even when we think we got it all together.
Again he’s a great husband and father. He’s as handsome as can be and he loves the Lord with his whole being. The only issue I have with him is that he’s…a morning person. Ugh!!!!
Yes, he wakes up, opens every blind and even sings and plays music on some mornings. In fact there are times he will start his own personal worship service just three feet away from the bed. It can be a nightmare.

Now is the Time to Seek the Lord

blog study word

Now is the time to seek the Lord. With so many things going on in the world today–random terrorist attacks, senseless killings, suicides, job loss, depression, hearts being deceived–people becoming more and more desensitized to the needs and well being of others.
And why is that?
I believe it’s because we’ve become so overwhelmed with what we SEE and how we FEEL about what we see, that we’ve taken our focus off of God and the Word and taken matters into our own hands. The result? Messed up lives. Continue reading

Word of Life

Three lessons I want you to take away from today’s blog:

1. There is POWER in words.

2. God’s PROMISES always come to pass.

3. Where there is VISION God gives PROVISION.

Are You Getting Enough Potassium?

Hey Guys,

During pregnancy it was such a joy carrying my son. Making sure that he was healthy was the most important thing to me.

I did everything I was suppose to do to ensure a safe and healthy delivery which included prayer. Thankfully my son came into this world bright-eyed, beautiful, strong and healthy.

Ironically, I had done so much to care for him, but neglected myself. About a month or so after his birthed I began to experience bouts of numbness in my legs. In fact, I was waking up every night unable to sleep due to the tingling in my legs.

My Surrender Healing Retreat Experience!

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity
(of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear),
but (He has given us a spirit) of power and of love
and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
(2 Timothy 1:7 AMP)

Hey Guys,

I am moving away from the normal agenda in order to share my experience on the Surrender Healing Retreat I attended last weekend. I’ll be sure to share more health tips next week!

Whoa, WOW, whew, re-donk-culous is all I can say about The Surrender Healing Retreat this past weekend hosted by Dr. Celeste Owens Ministries (DCOM)!!!

For me, this was one of, if not the best experiences of the movement of God I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. I can’t even begin to explain how thick the anointing of God was. From the first moment I walked into the conference room, I sensed that this was going to be something all together different from the norm. And boy was I right!

From the first stroke of the cord on the keyboard you could since the stirring of the Holy Spirit. And when the worshippers ministered in song you knew then that  this was going to be something you hadn’t expected.

It was like the cloud and weight of His glory was descending on our room and He was simply saying “Welcome to your new beginning.” Even as I write, the tears are trickling down my cheeks. God is simply Amazing!!!
Lady Malinda Chisholm, Joy Briscoe, Karen Ward, Dr. Celeste Owens, Pastor Deborah Evans, Nichole Thomas, and Tyra Lane-Kingsland allowed God to move and speak freely through them. It was simply awe-inspiring to watch. They spoke with authority and unashamed love for our God. They weren’t afraid to veer from what they thought would be important to say in order to fulfill God’s wishes by speaking what the Holy Spirit was giving them to say. And as they spoke what the Spirit had given them to speak, you could feel each level of God’s presence elevating to higher heights and deeper depths, even in our Christian Yoga sessions!

Let’s Talk Vitamin D

Vitamin D
By the proper intakes of
vitamins and other nutrients
and by following a few other
healthful practices from youth
or middle age on, you can, I
believe, extend your life and
years of well-being by twenty-
five or even thirty-five years.
Linus Pauling
 
Hey Guys,
Let’s talk Vitamin D!

There is a substantial amount of studies showing the multiple benefits of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of a group of vitamins found in liver and fish oils. It is essential for the absorption of calcium and the prevention of rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults (both diseases defined as a softening of bones in either children or adults due to deficiency or impaired metabolism of Vitamin D).

No creature is fully
itself till it is, like a dandelion,
opened in the bloom of pure
relationship to the sun, the
entire living cosmos.

Milk – To Drink or Not To Drink

I don’t believe that you have to
be a cow to know what milk is.
Ann Landers
milk
Hey Guys!

When you think of milk do you think of babies, kids and healthy growing bones? Well if so then think about adding adults to that equation as well. According to this weeks article there are 6 reasons why drinking milk can be an essential part of your diet.

If you don’t do dairy like Dr. Celeste that’s fine too. Just wanted to support those who can consume dairy without side effects.

Several benefits of drinking milk are: Continue reading

Life After Cycle 9

Hello Surrender Fasters!!!

How’s life after Cycle 9? Well for starters I have to get use to not conducting the Morning Prayer. LOL. I miss it but also welcome the break.

For now, let me encourage you to keep pressing, keep seeking God as He has moved you from a Finished Place to a New Beginning. The testimonies are flooding in praising God for the courage to resign, for allowing them to be fired, for opening opportunities for them to speak, for removing debt, etc.

I don’t know what your New Beginning looks like but I know it is GLORIOUS. I can’t wait to hear what great adventure God opens for  your next. Please share your praise report: testimony@surrenderfast.com.

Although the cycles of fasting have ended we would love to STAY CONNECTED. Here are some UPCOMING EVENTS. Continue reading
