Keeping the Faith

The last couple of weeks have been just a little trying. I have been to the several different doctor appointments as well as ER visits.  I have been having increased pain episodes as well as problems keeping my pressure under control... At my most recent ER visit, they gave me a new high blood pressure medication to help with managing the elevations in my pressure. I was also referred to one of the local heart doctors for additional testing to rule out any medical conditions with my heart.  

 I am reassured in my faith in God and realize that no matter what is going on that I have to trust God and know that he is in charge. I have been through so many things and he as not left me without a witness of his power and might. With each passing day, I am able to see him working on my behalf. Just in the simple things of getting up in the morning to having the ability to go and come without incident. By his grace, I am still here and for that I am most grateful!

On last week, I started a new process of drinking more water along with detoxing...The purpose of this is to clean out the impurities in my system and I would like to share. 
Acording to the word, it is God's desire for us to be in good health.. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3 John 1:2)
In order to be in health, we we must take control of what we put in our bodies....

I found this recipe (and take not credit,but am willing to share)
Recipe 1
-2 liters of water
-1 medium cucumber
-1 lemon
-10-12 mint leaves
(I added strawberries for additional flavor)
Steep overnight and drink everyday....

Recipe 2
-1.5 liters of water
-1 tsp cranberry juice
-2 tsp lemon juice 
-1skinnyMe Acai tea bag
Mix all together and sip through out the day..

....give these recipes a try and let me know what if any changes you experience and always remember to pray and ask God for guidance in your situation and most of all don't lose your faith!
