(Isaiah 26:3) “You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.”

Trust in the Lord to lead you by His Spirit as you take a chance in trusting yourself to grind through the first days of your dietary change to become a healthier, happier, and more fit you.

I know that you are scared, I know that you have questions, and I know that you think that you cannot “do it” but I’m here to tell you that you can and you will…all that you have to do is show up, take one day at time, and set realistic goals that you work towards with patience.

YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!

Treat yourself to something that really matters…better health…you won’t regret it!

Happy Mother’s Day

Posted: May 13, 2018 in Uncategorized

He gave you to me though I don’t deserve you.

You love me wholeheartedly and I often wonder how.

You make the day seem brighter and though night is supposedly a time of darkness your love for me shines right through it into my heart.

I know Jesus loves me because He blessed me with you dear wife.

I praise Him during any storm that I must endure not only for His presence with me but because He put you right there with me as my “ride or die” as I walk through it and again I’m blessed when I walk with you through yours.

I love you and honor you on this Mother’s Day “that the Lord has made”!

So for the many times that I have not appreciated you enough, not held you enough, not forgiven you quickly, not asked for forgiveness quickly, not treated you like the Queen that you are in Christ Jesus I ask for forgiveness and thank you for always giving me an opportunity to make it right.

Proverbs 31 (verses 10-31) reads:

“10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. 11  Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 12  She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13  She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. 15  She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. 16  She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17  She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 18  She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. 19  In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. 20  She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. 22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land 24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. 25  She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27  She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28  Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29  “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” 30  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 31  Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”

These scriptures embody what/who you are and what you mean to me so again I honor you today.

I love you Tracy Garrett…Happy Mother’s Day!

The problem here (referring to the Democrat agenda for California in the attached link) for the “Christian” who continues to vote Democrat “no matter what” is that this mindset represents the national leadership of the Democrat party and they keep it under wraps because they know that if their voters knew the full extent of what they truly believe then they would be in trouble so they put on a “we are a friend to the Christian” poker face in public nationally while behind the scenes they do everything that they can to weaken Christianity.

What I’m saying here refers ONLY to what I a former Democrat know from personal experience and does NOT infer any allegiance with or emboldens a response that I view the Republican leadership much better.

What I’m saying is that this leadership to include President Obama whether you like it or not approves of this agenda to silence Christianity or any form of conservatism while pretending to be tolerant when the unbiased and sans partisan individual that is not blinded by party loyalty can plainly see the truth.

California has ALWAYS been the “bell cow” leading the Democrat party’s agenda and since that has not changed I fail to see how any Christian that confers allegiance to this part cannot understand that they are in affect when casting a ballot for this agenda that they are casting a ballot for their actual belief to practice their faith as guaranteed by the Constitution and it is THEM that are doing it to themselves because they blindly trust this leadership because they SAY that they are for minorities, etc.,

Again, before I get any comments that I have to delete inferring that I’m pushing a Republican agenda know that as a Christian Independent Constitutionalist that I view BOTH parties with great disdain as they BOTH have strayed far from living up to their sworn oath to “support and defend the Constitution” of this country.

Most of what I see coming from both parties these days are designed to work around the tenants of the Constitution so that these mostly career politicians can accrue and hold onto power while keeping the “masses” who are trying to live daily, ordinary lives unware of their wealth-grabbing, in-Constitutional ways.

I digress….

Lastly, it has been the Democrat agenda to remove any and everything “God” from any and everything that we do one little step at a time and again…I am what I refer to as an “ole skool Democrat” and though I wasn’t a Christian back then I was always baffled that so many of the policies that were presented by the National Party headquarters was so “anti-Christian” in nature and it was ONLY about 20 years later after I gave my life to Christ that my eyes were opened to the truth (not only Democrats but ALSO ALL politicians and political agendas but I castigate Democrats here because nationally they continue to lie about their agenda and fool their constituents. Repubs do too TBF).

I’m always amazed at people who say that they want to lose weight or achieve better health or improve some medical condition with keto since they have seen how it is worked for me and want the results that I have but are not willing to does what I did and even stick with it to see the desired result.

They want to do it “their way” and my word to you is “go ahead…it’s your life” and I move on getting healthier and healthier while they remain caught in their own trap.

I also love how people are not willing to give up things that are harming them and will even say “oh…I don’t know if I can live without that” or “I can’t give that up” not realizing that that is an addictive mindset that God never intends for us to have.

For example. When the body has to deal with alcohol the body recognizes it as a poison and to keep it from killing you it basically reroutes most of its functionality to the liver so that it can metabolize it into a less harmful state and thus be excreted out of the body.

This process takes time and the entire time that this is happening no healing occurs, there is no repairing of muscle tissues, and to the person who is trying to lose body fat you must be aware that while the body in this protective process EVERYTHING that you eat regardless of whether it’s healthy or not (even Keto food) is immediately stored as fat on the body.

Over time as this process is repeated time and again the body starts to adapt and give up fighting what you are doing to it and the result is a dangerous fatty liver that can shorten your life in the worst and in the least make it very difficult to lose body fat.

So when I explain this process to someone who seeks my advice on losing body fat or who is seeking to reverse or improve a metabolic medical condition that they need to give up drinking alcohol at least for the first month or two of keto and they tell me “I don’t know if I can give it up” (whether it’s alcohol or certain foods) I tell them “it appears that you have something much more serious and that is a burgeoning addiction that you need to deal with because what you are saying to me is that “it” is more important than your health, possibly having more time with your loved ones, or improving your condition.”

This behavior is also mirrored in our walk with God as we show our true colors when we are not willing to give up something that He is telling us to give up when we know that He knows what is best for our lives.

So I ask you today…what do you want? What goals do you want to achieve? Are you unknowingly bearing an addiction that may be killing you body and/or spirit?

If you “can’t” live without it for sometime (more than a couple of months) even when you know that it is harming you then you have your answer and this is the time for you to do something about it.

If you pray the pray!

If you do something else then do that (I prefer prayer myself).

BUT DO SOMETHING and stop being a slave to that thing that you know is slowly (or quickly) killing you.

Hey…I know from experience that getting on the road to healing from an addiction be it hidden or other is not easy but I can promise you that if you make those changes that you won’t regret it.

Take the time to be the best YOU that YOU can be and let nothing be it the enemy or more often your “flesh” if you are a “believer” or if not then whatever you believe don’t allow “it” to stop you!

I believe in you so start believing in yourself as you deserve to be healthy.

Said in love,

While watching the prison/jail documentary TV show “60 Days In” one of the participants remarked at how real it had become as they went in and one door locked behind him, then another, and then another.

At each stage the doors locked behind him further taking him deeper and deeper into the prison resulting into him developing a feeling of deepening hopelessness.

As I watched i felt that God was impressing upon my soul to write this to someone who I feel like is going through a prison of sorts right now and who feels that they have gone further behind so many locked doors and so deep into their personal prison that they no matter how hard they try will never come out.

To whomever this is I want you to know that though you feel “locked in” that God has impressed upon my heart today to let you know that all you have to do is turn to Him for though He is NOT the one who imprisoned you HE is the ONLY One that holds all of the keys to every locked door and that you can be free if you only call on His Name!

Loose the fear, the shame, the pride, and that “I’m such a sorry person” attitude and realize that you have a Heavenly Inheritance in Jesus and all that YOU have to do is claim it in His Name!

He loves you!!!

Through a TV show He stopped this brother and had me write this love note to you to ensure that you know that He indeed has heard your prayers, feels your pain, knows your need, and has dealt with it all through His Son Jesus.

Call on Him and walk out of that prison that YOU are keeping yourself in and He just wanted me to remind you that some of the doors that you came into your prison by will remain locked for good as you don’t need to revisit everything behind each door to enter into the freedom that He has planned for you…simply as the song says “Walk on by” (by Dionne Warwick).

Rest in and accept the peace that He is giving you as He has already paid a steep price for you in allowing His Perfect Son Jesus to pay the perfect penalty for an imperfect person that didn’t even deserve it…that is just how He rolls!!

As much as I like the TV show “Black’ish” I was deeply irritated with the episode that I just watched concerning the lead character “Dre” (Actor Anthony Anderson) being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and then going on to repeat the same lies that have been perpetuated for years of how to deal with it and that is “medicine”, continuation of consuming sugar alongside a low-fat diet, and exercise.

Also, the dishonesty continued as they categorized the disease as only “manageable” with no mention that it is by evidence curable when a well-formed “ketogenic” (low-carb, high fat, moderate protein, no sugar (including fruit)) diet is applied to the diabetic’s life thus continuing the misinformation that has been propagated to the “masses” by “big food”, “big pharma”, “big sugar”, and the people that they “buy off” (propigating an ever growing customer base via their complicit shenanigans) our politicians, governmental agencies, medical organizations who are supposed to be advocates for our well-being like the American Diabetes Association. The American Heart Association, the FDA/USDA (and many others) all the while “we the people” continue to get sicker and sicker as the lies grow older and older and this must stop!

A black person is more than three times likely to contract diabetes but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence for them or anyone else.

Stop believing the lies, educate yourself on how to heal your body with a ketogenic lifestyle of obtaining nourishment, learn about how Dr. Ansel Keys (heart doctor who made “fat” and cholesterol the blame for heart issues) manipulated data, lied to further their agendas, and aligned themselves with the very entities that have caused this diabetic crisis in our country that I listed above when they know that the sheer mountain of evidence proofed in study after study that it is NOT fat that is or ever was the culprit but IS AND STILL IS “CARBOHYDRATE” (something that the body does NOT need to survive since our body can on its own manufacture glucose without it) which includes ALL FORMS OF SUGAR AND GRAINS is the true enemy and they give you medicine to mitigate it INSTEAD of informing you that you can eat to a standard to reverse the disease…I SHOULD KNOW SINCE IVE DONE IT!

I urge you to start your education by looking up “The Big Fat Surprise” by Nina Teicholz (information linked here: https://ninateicholz.com/about/the-book/) to understand how you’ve been lied to and how you continue to be lied to all due to money and political influence.  

Also utilize the media that we often use for pure nonsense as a resource to educate yourself on the truth as people like Dr. Steve Phinney (a low carb pioneer), Dr. Eric Westman (known as the Diet Doctor linked here: https://www.dietdoctor.com/how-to-do-an-lchf-diet-dr-eric-westman), and so many others like Ivor Cummings, Professor Tim Noakes, etc., are speaking the truth and it’s slowly due to the advent of social media the truth is getting out (they can’t hide it from you anymore as long as you are not too lazy to look for it).

Listen to podcast who advocate the truth to you like “2 Keto Dudes (2ketodudes.com…also visit  Ketogenic forums”the “Ketovangelist”, and other leaders of the Ketogenic movement like Jimmy Moore of the “Living La Vida Low Carb” podcasts as well as their other social media platforms which also direct you to other resources that can help.

Lastly, know that as you start looking into a ketogenic way of life that the “old guard” (including your family) who has bought into the lies (as taught to the, via our educational and media systems…not their fault) will try to dissuade you from trying to heal yourself with the truth but ask yourself this…if THEY have always been right then why is diabetes and the disease/complications that are associated with it so rampant these days?   

Why is it that when the “SAD” (standard American diet…high in grains, sugars but low in fat) is introduced and implemented ANYWHERE in the world diabetes and heart disease most assuredly becomes rampant?  

Why is it when one is diagnosed with a disease that by its definition tells us that our body has a problem with glucose (sugar) do our doctors and nutritionists continue to prescribe diets with SUGAR still in it via carbohydrates and fruit (natural bags of sugar…your body doesn’t have to have it since it can manufacture all of the vitamins it needS WHEN nourished properly)? (You would say a doctor should lose his/her license if they prescribe alcohol to an alcoholic or drugs to a drug addict since it could worsen their condition or kill them but nary a person bays an eye when a doctor or nutritionist prescribes more sugar to a diabetic and then gives them a pill to counteract that sugar INSTEAD of telling them to simply leave the sugar alone.)

AND…why is it that we aren’t told that it has only been since the advent of the “food pyramid” which flipped the way we eat from fatty meats and natural fat foods, low carbohydrate, and little sugar to the opposite that diabetes and heart issues have exploded in this country and in the world in countries that the SAD diet (that acronym is so appropriate) has been implemented as a way of life.

Let’s stop the madness please!!!

This awesome lecture (linked by Mrs. Angela Lee Duckworth) is nothing more than a worldly version of many of the of the New Testament and specific the author of many of its writings the Apostle Paul on how to “succeed”.

God impressed in my heart as I watched it that if we lived life with “grit” commitment to Him, His Word, His teachings, and led by His Holy Spirit then we would garner the means of “success”. Not as the world views it but if an eternal one.

I am not the smartest, I’m not the best looking, I’m not the wealthiest…I am not a lot of things but what I am most importantly is a child of God who does his best to keep his commitments and who does not quit AND who raised his kids to hold their commitments once they made them (my daughter will attest to that).  

If you signed up for something you followed through and you definitely weren’t allowed to quit ESPECIALLY if I put $ in it, 😂.

This taught my children to first be wise in choosing their commitments and if they did commit that they would have to follow through even to the point of loss and this was BEFORE we became Christians…even more so now.
