Made to Crave Blog Hop - # DETERMINATION

What is Determination?  It's that fire in you belly that causes you fight for what most say is a losing battle.  Determination has been a key word in my vocabulary since the day I was born.  I wasn't suppose to live.  In fact, as I've shared before, the doctors suggested that my parents leave me at the hospital and forget they had a baby girl.  Thankfully, God had given them insight to say no, this child will make it.  I can never thank them enough for not giving up on me.  Normal milestones were deemed impossible for me, yet one by one, I conquered them all - sometime doing so in my own unique way.  
     However, I've notice that as I get older determination has been harder to find.  I'm tired, not just physically tired, although I am that too,  but I seamed to have lost my mojo.  I've been living in survival mode for way too long.  I've been doing just the minimal to get by - just to be satisfactory.  This is no longer acceptable.   I need to be the best I can be at all times, giving 110% in all I do.  
     This study on MADE TO CRAVE   needs to light a fire in my belly!  Not just to eat better, but to crave God in ALL AREAS OF MY LIFE!  I pray that God increase my desire to do God's will and to be the best wife and mother I can be .


  1. #Determined, I'm with you, Sister! Let's let God light that fire in our bellies (maybe it will burn some fat, too, LOL) and get our mojo on again! So thankful you have joined us on this journey. May God richly bless you and yours.

  2. Amen, amen, amen!!! For the longest time I, too, have lived in survival mode, but NO MORE!! Thank you --- your blog reminded me of this Scripture today:

    "Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work." Colossians 3:23-25 (The Message)

    In His love,
