Yes You Can! The Power of Your Words!


When it comes to exercise and changing your eating habits a lot of us get stuck at the words “I can’t do it”! Well I hate to burst your proverbial bubble but Yes You Can! Nothing is impossible for you if you believe. I would encourage you today to change your mind & change your confession about what you can & cannot do. The real question is why don’t you believe you can? Who told you that you cannot make the changes necessary to become a healthier you? Are you listening to the voices of your past failures or did someone tell that you that this is an impossible task for you? Whatever the case may be I am here to tell you YES YOU CAN! I want you to believe this and to speak this concerning your weight loss goals, concerning your food choices as it relates to eating clean, concerning working out at least 5 days a week & concerning sleeping at least 6-8 hours a day. Did you know that your tongue is a powerful tool? Your tongue has the power of life & death in it. Your words have creative power & they frame the world you live in daily. So use it to your advantage.

When I started my weight loss journey after my 50th+ try (LOL) I made a decision to release my faith and to speak LIFE instead of death concerning my weight. I confessed & declared by faith that I CAN do ALL things through Christ that strengthens me & guess what God has strengthened me and here I am 45+ pounds later with the fruit of my confession. Do not underestimate the power of your words. Be intentional about what you believe, what you say & what you release into the atmosphere. Speak what you want to see. Speak by Faith, Faith is the substance of things hoped for & the evidence of things not seen. There is power in your confession mixed with faith and then your consistent action must follow. I truly believe that our confessions are the wings that put our faith to flight & gives us the push we need to put our faith into action. Trust me YOU CAN DO it! Say it with me I CAN DO IT!!!

Let’s Go!
