hello my sister and welcome to healthy by design
0:09my name is Kathy morenzie and i’m the president and the founder of the healthy
by design programs and what we are is a health and wellness company that’s
committed to practically applying biblical truth to your health and
wellness journey and so today I want to talk to you a little bit about making
your flesh willing and this idea for this little this little chat came about
because this morning i was on a call with a group of ladies and we were
talking about exercise and so I asked her how are you doing in your exercise
program and she said that’s my spirit is willing but the flesh is weak and how
many times have we said that we want to do it we want to exercise we want to eat
right we want to improve our lives but our flash Christ out and says no I don’t
feel like it i’m too tired maybe tomorrow and all these these different
fears come up and these different feelings come up and it had me thinking
about the scripture where Jesus called the disciples to pray and he said to
pray and watch and the disciples fell asleep anyways and Jesus wasn’t
condemning them but he was showing them a principal about the flesh and the
spirit and so we needed to pray they needed to pray and to remain in the
spirit in order to overcome the weakness of the flesh and so I just wanted to
share a little bit of this topic with you just for a couple minutes because
that scripture highlighted a few things that can help us on our health and
weight loss journey when it comes to learning how to subdue that last how to
get motivated to do those things that we don’t want to do and so the first
strategy that Jesus taught was to pray and the Bible there’s other scriptures
that you can find in the bottom of this post the talks about pray when you fall
into temptation and that is one of the tools that we need to use each and every
time is to cry out to God and say lord help me
I’m feeling weak at this time the second one is to watch we need to be on guard
first Peter teaches us that our enemy is searching around like a like a lion
looking to devour us so we must for me on guard all the time we have to notice
when we’re feeling and I call it halt that I heard from Charles Stanley a
number of years ago so watch when you’re feeling too hungry to angry too lonely
too tired because those are the times when you let your guard down and that’s
when your resistance is low and that’s when you’ll completely give up on your
eating plan or you won’t do those things that you want to do so the first one is
to pray the second one is to watch and to be on your
guard to watch even one of those things you’re watching on television that
if you’re looking at all these commercials with beer and wine and food guess
what you’re going to get tempted if you’re looking at all these movies that
show people that are super skinny and and what they do to reach that then that
also is going to come into your mind
So guard your mind against what you watch on TV what you listen to all those
ridiculous ads on the radio that are a bunch of lies and what you watch on the
internet are you constantly surfing the internet looking at things that are just
going to make you feel weak or give into temptation and the last one is to
understand this is Sookie because when we don’t understand why we do what we do
when we don’t understand why our flesh is so weak then we beat up on ourselves
we condemn ourselves we say what is wrong with me why can i do this and what
do we do as a result we end up eating more it’s like you know what this isn’t
for me or this is for somebody else and all of those things are lies
so we really need to take some time and understand 1why is we do what we do we need to get to
the root of some of those fears that are keeping us from taking action we need
to understand what our motivation is there’s so much more that we need to take
the time and learn ourselves and learn our bodies take that to the Holy Spirit
and say Lord show me those things that are deep inside show me reveal them to
me and he will gently the things that you’re not ready to understand yet then they
won’t come now but trust the process and trust that God will show you what
he needs to show you in time I hope this blesses you and stay tuned for my next
my next little presentation like this
god bless you bye
