Scripture of the Day:

Standard

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership does righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,

and I will be their God, and they shall be my people”

2 Corinthians 6:14-16

This quote speaks volumes. In a sense, this quote to me, still means you’re “becoming” because unbecoming, is still becoming something.. preparing you for something else that’s unimaginable to you. After so many years of being lost in regards to knowing what my niche is, I now realize and believe that I was unbecoming the entire time.. or like I was unwittingly under construction with finding where I ‘fit’ in life; I found out where I need to be, where I was meant to be. When I say “need” I just mean, it came natural to me and by nature, I gravitated towards actually wanting to research nearly everyday about it, take the necessary starting steps, gain as much knowledge as I can and truly be intrigued by what I’ve learned relating to what I want to do in life. The things I thought were for me sounded attractive at the moment, mainly because it was easy to obtain and made a good amount of money. I am where I need to be. Where do you fit in in life? What’s your niche? Find it, learn it and live it.

What’s stopping You?

Standard

If you’ve ever found yourself getting really passionate about a lot of things for a short period of time and not following through on any of them, I can tell you exactly why that is. It’s because of 1 or 2 reasons:

1. You just really like to fantasize about how great your life would be if you has a successful carreer but you actually don’t have the character to carry through on your dreams…

Or

2. Its because you’re letting what you don’t know stop you from continuing to take action.

You have to realize that no matter what it is that you are doing, there are going to be barriers, there are going to be things you don’t know, there are going to be places that you need to grow. No one ever learned to walk by knowing how to walk first. Everyone learns how to walk by attempting to walk, falling down, getting up and not giving up until they succeed. Do you realize there is not one child who has ever given up on themselves when they are learning to walk?! Do you also realize that when you are learning how to walk, you do not expect it to be easy, but you know that its possible because you can see other people doing it all around you. There are many people, including myself, who have and will walk the path and live as examples of what is possible.

At the end of the day, if you are not willing to move through these barriers, (psychologically) then you will never get to where you want to be.

Detox Juice Recipe:

Standard

Making this or any juices into a smoothie instead is healthy for you as well. Juicing just makes the nutrients of fruits and veggies more readily available for your body, making it easier to absorb and getting into your body quicker rather than when you eat fruits and veggies whole. It is also, essentially, better for detoxification. Smoothies contains all the fiber of fruits and veggies which makes it more filling; it just takes the nutrients a slower time to enter your body or blood stream.

 

  • 1 handful of kale
  • 2 handfuls of kale
  • 1 medium honeycrisp apple (cut into wedges)
  • 1 lemon (remove the peel)
  • 1inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seed

I poured the juice into my blender and blended the juice with the chia seeds until well blended or smooth for an extra boost.

Here are some, not all, of the health benefits (stemming from my own knowledge and research) on what’s inside of this juice 🙂

  1. Ginger: is known to help with nausea (motion sickness as well as morning sickness), maintaining normal blood circulation, combats stomach discomfort, menstrual pain and gas, helps prevent cold and flus while strengthening your immunity, helps prevents various types of cancers and promotes a healthy heart.
  2. Chia seeds: are one of my favorite superfoods and are one of the best that there is. They are packed with omega 3 fatty acids (healthy fats that our body needs), rich in fiber (I use the Simple Truth Organic Black Chia seeds and 1 tablespoon has  grams of fiber), boosts your energy and metabolism, it’s also a good source of protein and antioxidants, they last nearly 2 years without refrigeration and can help aid in weight and fat loss while helping with the growth of your muscles.
  3. Lemons: are an amazing detox and cleanse for your body, they help restore your body’s pH balance, rich in vitamin C, helps with your digestive systems and metabolism, and aids in fat loss.
  4. Spinach and Kale: the best dark greens to choose from, rich in antioxidants, high in fiber, high in Vitamin A & C for healthy skin and hair, low in calories, improves digestive system and a metabolism booster,
  5. Apple: HEALTHY CARB! rich in fiber and antioxidants, I recently found out that apples reduce tooth decay by lowering levels of bacteria, reduces cholesterol, curbs cancers, aids in constipation, promotes a healthy heart and detoxifies your liver.

*Foods high in fiber are great for weight loss, mainly because it fills you up without costing you too many calories.. which stops you from over eating*

Give this a go or experiment with your own ingredients!

 

 

Scripture of the Day:

Standard

Blessed is the one who maintains under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.”

James 1:12-14
