Declaration & Exercise of the Week

Greetings Everyone!!!

This week’s declaration comes from 2 Corinthians 5:21 – I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Be sure to think on this and say it often. If you have an image of yourself that is not from God, it must be replaced with what He says about you. I absolutely love this confession and verse; because it always reminds me of God’s absolute goodness! There is nothing that we can do that will change the way that He sees us or His love for us. I thank God that His covenant with us is not based on our  actions; but on His love for us. A great example of this is in Genesis chapter 20; when Abraham lied and said that Sarah was his sister, because he was scared and displayed cowardice behavior. In spite of Abraham’s behavior, God showed up to Abimelech in a dream; which resulted in Abraham not only getting his wife back; but also wealth. His prayer also wasn’t hindered; because he prayed for Abimelech & his nation so that the women wouldn’t be barren. God saw Abraham as righteous; and this was not determined by his behavior. Praise God!

Abraham might have had these character flaws in the beginning; but through God’s love and God seeing Him as righteous, Abraham’s behavior did eventually line up with how God saw him; because He began to see himself as God saw him. (This is a great place to shout Glory Hallelujah)!

Ok, I had not even planned to write that; but I’m sure someone will benefit from it. Now on to the exercise of the week. The plank exercise builds the core muscles (which includes the front & sides of your abs, back and butt muscles). It also strengthens your arm and chest muscles. It’s a great exercise! In the video, I show five variations of the plank, so select that one that works best for your body right now. I just thought about the wall plank. I should’ve added that. It’s great for anyone who has trouble getting down on the floor. If you fall into this category, just put your elbows on the wall, in front of your shoulders. Then walk your feet behind you and lean into your elbows. Be sure to pull your belly button into your spine and hold the exercise as long as you can.

Thank you for reading this post and watching the video! If you find it beneficial, please feel free to share. Have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll see you on the blog again soon!

Daily Declarations

Greetings everyone!! I hope you all are enjoying your week. I wanted to share some of my daily declarations with you. Please feel free to adopt them as your own. The following statements are bible verses that I’ve personalized; and speak to myself daily. Our words are our seeds. Galatians 6:7 says that a person reaps what (s)he sows; so start sowing good seeds for your life.

Morning Declaration

Romans 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Neuroscience teaches us that what we think produces the life that we live. Dr. Caroline leaf explains it this way. Our thoughts directly influence our brains. They appear like trees in our brains. Positive thoughts look like flourishing trees; while negative thoughts look like dead trees in our brains; which in turn, impact our bodies. Have you ever noticed that negative people tend to deal with sickness, much more than positive people? Dr. Masaru Emoto did an experiment years ago where he had two jars of water. One jar had negative words spoken over it; while the other jar had positive words spoken over it. The water crystals in the negative water jar became ugly and distorted; while the water crystals in the positive jar were beautiful and perfect.

Pastor Bill Winston teaches that we are not originators of our thoughts. We were designed to have an overlord. Adam received his thoughts from God; until the fall. Our thoughts originate from one of two influences…. Most High or the most low (enemy). Deuteronomy 30:19 (nlt) says this: Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You have a daily choice to make. Whose thoughts will you choose to think? God’s thoughts lead to life and blessings; while the enemy’s lead to death and curses. Like I always tell my children: Every choice that you make has a consequence, so choose wisely. If you don’t want something to show up in your life, do not speak it (because you will speak what’s in your heart). On the other hand, if you want something to show up in your life, speak it. We are ALWAYS making declarations…..that’s why we have our current life circumstances. If you want something different , say something different.

I had not intended to write this much; but someone needs to read it, so. May the favor of God rule in your hearts and you live the life that He’s purposed you for!
