Today we live in a complicated world as it relates to the distractions of television, internet, and social media. It becomes very difficult to prioritize health and fitness each day because they battle for your time along with your normal every day activities. The path to health and fitness may not be as complicated as you think. Consider these three simple steps as you move towards 2018 being your best healthy and fit year yet!
If you’re a couch potato, parent or an executive, you must see yourself on top. Make a mental picture of yourself being healthy and fit. Imagine yourself in your new body. Wearing the clothes you love, having endless energy and having self-confidence. Allow this image to permeate your thoughts until you feel the internal peace of attainment.
Once you’ve established the image of your ultra-fit self. Now begin to chart a path. I recommend establishing small workable goals first. Developing consistency is much more beneficial than developing large overwhelming goals. There are many phone apps that have 5-20 minute workout apps that I fine to be very useful. You’ll receive maximum benefits in a short amount of time. My personal favorite apps for exercising and food tracking are the Nike Training Club, MyFitnessPal, and Daily Workout.
Lastly, you must take action. Building elaborate plans and mental mapping success is useless without execution. Taking the first steps can be overwhelming and tiresome, but over time health and fitness becomes effortless, fun, and may become a spiritual outlet. I recommend just starting, even a goal as small as drinking more water every day and taking a 7-minute walk is worth a try. The goal is progress not perfection.

HAPPY NEW YEAR…it is 2018, the Year that we are decreeing according to Acts 2:2 the power of the “Fresh Wind”. I believe that this will be an exceptional year of the Lord’s favor in 3 dimensions: Spirit, Power, and Abundance. We will arise like a mighty army with victory and the authority to conquer. I know by a witness in my spirit that this will be a year of great manifestation of God’s hand. It is so important that we trump through every misconception of who we are in Christ Jesus, and realize that the past of the former years cannot be a deterrent of us moving forward and taking major faith steps towards our purpose. Begin this year with a perpetual praise and being persistent about framing your world with Words of faith, stay consistent in prayer, reading the word of God, fasting and holding on to what God has promised us, will cause us to have a second wind to complete the course. You must hold on to your Faith in 2018!
In Hebrews 11:6 Amp it reads:
“ But without faith, it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.”
I love the word reward. A reward is a recompense for a worthy act. God loves to reward and benefit you for diligently seeking Him.
Learn to live the lifestyle of pursuing the things of God, putting him first in your life, and raising your expectation level.
The things you are thankful for are the things that God will multiply in your life; begin this year honoring God through gratefulness. Put Him first every day.
Words create your daily experiences. Words are containers of expectation. They are filled with possibilities. Possibilities come as you change the way you think. Words have a powerful effect on the atmosphere around you. Get excited about your words. Your Words will be bringing your breakthrough. Your Words are renewing your strength. Your Words are bringing your abundance and your Words are restoring your health.
Words are powerful tools that open and close doors. Every time you change the way you speak, you open a whole new world of opportunities. Words are powerful tools for changing your life. Your reward is closer than you think…This year 2018, we the Body of Christ will see the hand of the Lord move mighty in our lives, this will be an incredible year of favor, increase, strength, creativity and renewed passion to pursue our dreams.
13“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “When the plowman shall overtake the one who gathers the harvest, and the one who treads the grapes [shall overtake] him who sows the seed [for the harvest continues until planting time]; When the mountains will drip sweet wine. And all the hills shall melt [that is, everything that was once barren will overflow with streams of blessing].
14 “Also I shall bring back the exiles of my people Israel, and they will rebuild the deserted and ruined cities and inhabit them: They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit.15
“I will also plant them on their land, And they shall never again be uprooted from their land. Which I have given them,” Says the Lord your God. Amos 9:13-15
