Sunday Manna | Give Praise & Thanks

Having a little talk with Jesus.....Casting all your cares on him for he cares for you. He has already done so many great things in my life that I dare not give him praise. We may all be going through something right now, but we have to think on the good things and gain strength in knowing that he will never leave you or forsake. Psalms96 96 O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth. 2 Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. 4 For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens. 6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary. 7 Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength. 8 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts. 9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. 10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. 11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. 12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice 13 Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. Psalms 111 111 Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. 2 The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. 3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. 5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. 6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. 7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure. 8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. 9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. it's a new Month and we Decree that it Is a Blessed month. Putting a "Judah" Praise on it..... A praise and a positive outlook with carry you a long way..... Much Love, Nora Top songs of praise & worship

7 tips to Coping with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain

Coping with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain  
Background Information  This post is geared towards offering some tips to dealing with Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain disorders.  Fibromyalgia is the most common musculoskeletal condition. It often goes misdiagnosed and misunderstood. Fibromyalgia includes widespread joint pain and fatigue.  Fibromyalgia causes you to ache all over. You may also have tender points on the body that may be painful to touch. Fibromyalgia may cause you to have irregular sleep patterns as well as mood disturbances such as depression. Some patients may also have the following symptoms: headaches, stomach aches , inability to concentrate ( fibromyalgia fog) , numbness or tingling in the fingers and feet If you are having symptoms that you are unsure , I recommend you seeing your primary care doctor for a referral to a specialist ( commonly known as a rheumatologist) My Story  After many years of suffering ongoing pain and many test to rule out conditions such lupus and thyroid disease I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Arthritis  and osteoarthritis. I live with chronic pain and a daily basis. I was initially prescribed medications that I was not comfortable taking for different reasons. There were some that I tried ( Lyrica & Savella) that did not help me. I really have not found any medication that offered me any relief. I continue to educate myself and trust God that there will be answer and a relief for myself and others. 7 tips to cope with Fibromyalgia 1. Reduce Stress – modify your lifestyle and learn to say “No” Sometimes we are over achievers and take on too many obligations. 2. Sleep- make sure you are getting recommended about of sleep. If you are having trouble with restful sleep you will need to develop a night time routine that will help you to get the sleep that you need. 3. Relaxation- aside from sleeping you need to take 20-30 minutes breaks during the day to help to relax you mind and your body. If you are working, try to plan 10 minutes or so out of the day  get some quiet time in order to make it through the day easier. 4.Exercise – I know this may be the toughest one to do. In honesty, this is one of the most important things to try to do because the mobility really is helpful to keep the joints from being so stiff. This also helps stretch muscles. I have not tried this but, warm water aerobics have been very beneficial to some fibromyalgia suffers. 5. Prayer & Mediation- We have to keep our faith and trust in God to give us the strength to believe in the divine healing power. You have to stay positive and believe that there is healing for you. Your healing may come from a spiritual miracle from God or it may come from researchers finally coming up with a medication that will help. Jeremiah 29:11  is my favorite scripture…that helps me to know that there is help and healing for is not God’s desire to cause harm to us. 6. Eat Wise – it really does matter what the types of food you consume. Drink plenty of water , eat green( lots of leafy green vegetables) and add some type of daily vitamins. Stay away from colas and chocolate. 7. Live & Be happy- this may be easier said than done. Get involved in at least two leisure activities that you enjoy doing. It may be swimming, reading, knitting, spending time with friends, shopping etc…. For me, it has been spending quality time with my family & photography. Live, Love, Laugh….. #livewithpurpose Much Love, Nora

Living with Fibromyalgia #OOTD

There is not a day that goes by that I am not in physical pain. I pray each day for some relief and nothing seems to help to decrease the pain. I have realized that stress really does increase the pain. I work every day to press pass the pain. I get all my strength from God as he helps me. patience is a virtue. ...... I have learned to keep a positive attitude. I take nothing for granted and look for something good to happen to me. I like sharing with others.. What do you find inspiration in? Do you feel that you can still be inspired?

Something new....shirt

Something old....Steve madden printed peep -toe heel

My inspiration is my Faith, Family & Fashion......
Much Love �� Nora
