Asking for a Blessing and believing in HIS abundance

As I begin my new business as an Arbonne Consultant, I am facing two great fears that have plagued me most of my life. The fears of rejection and failure. But these past few months I have learned to stand on God's word, and in His Truth. He says DO NOT FEAR repeatedly in the scripture so I am rebuking the voice in my head that says I should fear rejection and failure because they are coming. Instead, today I am choosing to believe that I will be embraced by those that I share my heart with and I will find success because I am dedicating this business to God. If He stands for me and beside me, then who can come against me? There is so much freedom in not only believing in God, but trusting His goodness.

In the previous post, I tagged 2015 as a year of health and happiness. Well, in truth, that journey began in the fall  of 2014 and it began as a spiritual healing. I learned the beautiful art of true, complete and lasting forgiveness. I learned to distinguish the lies of the enemy of my soul from God's truth. I also rededicated myself to living my life as a prayer to God. I don't pray once, twice, or five times a day. My entire life has become a prayer of thanksgiving and praise. Since I accepted this as my purpose, everything has changed. Friendships were reestablished, others lost. Past desires of my heart were reignited while the embers of others have grown cold. My life has refocused on the Creator of the Universe and I truly believe His transforming power is going to lead me toward an abundance of blessings that are promised in scripture; among them will be acceptance, success, health and His enduring Joy! May all my readers find the same <3 p="">
“I will enjoy blessing them. With all my heart and soul I will faithfully plant them in this land.” Jeremiah 32:41 

Father, I dedicate this year to you.  I praise you and thank you for your faithfulness in bringing me to a place of healing and joy! I am in awe of your beautiful works and how you have shown yourself to me. Lord, I ask for your blessing. I ask you without shame because you have said "ask and you shall receive"! You desire to bless your children Father, so today I commit myself to accepting your gifts with joy and gratitude. I will watch for your hand as you shower me, my business and those I love with ABUNDANCE this year. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

* Please take this prayer, make it yours and trust that He will answer you!*

A Journey to Health and Happiness in 2015!

I haven't written anything in a while- unfortunately. But I'd like to share how I am rediscovering health and happiness in 2015; perhaps it will inspire you readers as well! 

I have had some health struggles for about ten years now. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years ago because as the Doctor said "We can't find anything wrong with you."  In March 2014 I began seeing a Doctor who specializes in combining Traditional Medicine and Holistic Medicine. She did extensive blood work on me and after about five months she finally had a diagnosis for me. She said “You don’t have fibromyalgia, you are malnourished due to Leaky Gut Syndrome, caused by Gluten, Dairy and Soy intolerance.” I had also become intolerant of many of my everyday foods such as bananas, eggs, chocolate, chicken and pork.  As well as dealing with estrogen dominance and hypothyroidism (both consequences of my body not functioning properly due to malnourishment).

I cut all those foods out of my diet, began taking excessive amounts of vitamins and minerals and within two months I had lost 18 pounds and felt like I was coming back to life. I plateaued at that 18 pounds for a month. Could not budge that scale. Then I met a new friend Karen. I shared with her what I was doing with dietary changes and she said “That is exactly what my company is all about!” So she shared Arbonne with me. My mom was so excited about it, that for Christmas she gave me the “30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond” and signed me up as a consultant so I could continue it with the discount. I did not have any intention of sharing or selling the program because I’m busy enough with two babies two and under. 

The program consists of taking a protein shake twice a day, with daily fiber and a digestive enzyme packet (including pro and pre-biotics). You get to drink fizzy energy sticks, which are delicious and help that craving for a soda,  and snack on fit chews to help with sugar cravings. They taste like a lemon star burst, tootsie roll or caramel; I am hooked! But the best part of all, you receive a shopping list and recipe book for all the clean eating meals you will make! This ensures that you will learn how to shop and eat clean, which sets you up for success in your goals of continued health and weight-loss/maintenance. 

After one week I was a believer. I had lost five pounds and was so much more energized and motivated. Even my eczema had cleared up! I had not thought that I could feel better than I already did, but this blew me away. Honestly, now I ask myself how can I NOT share this program with others?

If you are interested in the program, I can get you a great discount. I really just want to help others feel healthy and happy throughout their life.
