I love my body and today I will treat it with respect.
Today, I Arise and Walk!
The Strength I need to get fit is already inside me. Starting today, I will call on that Strength every day, and I know He will guide me. By walking with the Spirit today, I’ll make it a great day. And tomorrow will be even better.
Because I claim to live in Him, I must walk as Jesus did. (I John 2:6)
Today, I am Walking on Purpose! Today, I am Walking WITH Purpose!
I do not just love with words but with actions in truth also. (I John 3:18)
My body is a temple. When I honor my body, I honor God.
Every day I walk, I walk in devotion.
I am aware that my Speaking Truth Brings Power into my life. I guard my lips and my lips guard my life. I will not speak rashly and come to ruin, but will speak Faith-Full-Ly about myself. (Prov.13:3)
Walking makes me feel like a brand new person. I love to walk!
Today, I am Getting a Hand from Above! Thank You, Lord, for giving me all the confidence and energy to accomplish everything I set out to do! I have everything I need for ultimate success. I’m tapped into the Greatest Source of Energy in the Universe, Today I will use just enough to get through the day with flying colors!
I rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS and I will say it again, “REJOICE!”
I let my gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
I am not anxious about anything.
In everything that happens, I pray and ask with thanksgiving and present my requests to God. His peace transcends all my understanding. This peace guards my heart and mind.
I CHOOSE to think only on things that are true, noble, lovely, admirable. I think on anything that is excellent or praiseworthy. Whatever I have learned and received and heard or seen revealed to me by the Spirit, I put into practice today. God’s peace is with me! (Phil. 4:4-9)
This day, I am thankful! I thank You, God, for the gift of a regular life. I promise not to waste it.
I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Whether I am in need or in plenty, I have learned the SECRET OF BEING CONTENT in any and every situation, whether I just ate or I am hungry.
I can do everything through You who provides strength to make good decisions.
Today I decide to walk with You and to put good fuel into my body.
Today, I appreciate the little things—the roof over my head, the smiles of friends and family, the great energy in my body as I walk. Today, I am taking Spiritual Inventory. God, You are a part of every step I take. I give thought to my steps. (Prov.14:15) I am a whole, seamless person, Spirit, Soul, (which is my mind, will and emotions) and Body. Everything I do today will be a perfect reflection of my beliefs.
Today, I choose to love myself. I feel the Divine Spark in my body and soul. I choose to do everything to further God’s plan for me. I do not argue with my Maker or question His doings. I trust Him. (Isa. 45:9-10) I am His creation of love, excellence and beauty.
Today, I walk in compassion. We are all a part of God’s plan and all deserving of love. I CHOOSE to live in harmony with everyone. I am sympathetic, loving and humble in all my relationships. I do not repay with evil for evil or insult for insult. I bless others because I am called to bless so that I may inherit a blessing. (I Peter 3:8-9) Today I will feel God’s love shining through me. I say a blessing for and to everyone I meet.
Today, I am building Strength! I will do what it takes to stay strong into my ripe old age, because I have many important things to do while on earth.
I know my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in me. I know that God gave me this body. I am not my own. I am bought with a price. I will honor God with my body. (I Cor. 6:19-20) Each day I get stronger, and each day I get a little closer to God.
This day, I see food as SACRED FUEL. I choose premium fuel to run this body. I know God is always with me when I eat, helping me get the energy I need to serve His kingdom. Whether I eat or drink or whatever I do, I do it all for the glory of God. (I Cor. 10:31) Today, I will put nothing but God’s natural foods into my glorious body!
Today, I choose to make what I drink sacred. With every glass of water I drink, I am bathing my soul in God’s goodness. Just as Jesus said to the woman at the well, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water. Everyone who drinks the water I give him will never thirst again. The water I give will become in him a sp ring of water welling up to eternal life.” I hear Him speaking this to me. Every time I drink water, I will think about the Living Water that washes and refreshes my soul. Today I commit to drinking water before and after exercise and to keep it nearby to drink throughout the day. Water is my drink of choice.
I pay attention to what is happening in the here and now. I ENJOY EACH MOMENT. I am exactly where I need to be right now. Everything is all right.
I am loved by You, Lord and I am in love with You. Because I am in love, I am noticing all the small miracles of life, the simple things, like breathing and moving and seeing and hearing. I hold this fresh feeling of excitement of renewed love and I carry it with me all day long. I take joy in my everyday tasks because I am dreaming about You! I embrace this day with all my will!
Today, I receive healing from all dis-ease. I find my rest in You. You are the One who brings ease to me. Life is good. I really look forward to each day. I listen to You and I live in safety and in ease, without fear of harm. (Prov. 1:33) My natural state is abundant joy, health, and well-being.
When I wake up in the morning, this is the first thing I feel. Today I will look my BEST for You, Lord! As Your representative, I want others to see You in me. You smile through me to others. My beauty shines from within! When my beautiful smile and the evidence of good self-care shows, others notice also the gentle and quiet peaceful spirit I have, which is of great worth is God’s sight. (I Peter 3:3-4)
I spend as much and even more time caring for my “inner life” as my “outer life.” With each step I take, I’m on my way to being healthier, happier, and more attractive than I have ever been!
I can tiptoe past temptation. I trust that good days will follow the not so good days. There will be more and more of the good ones as long as I stick to God’s plan. Just when I am thinking that I am standing firm and walking every day, I know that I need to be watchful that I do not fall. I must remember that no temptation except what is common to man has ever seized me. God is faithful. He will not allow me to be tempted above what I can bear. When I feel tempted, God will also provide a way out so that I can stand up under it. (I Cor. 10:12-13) As I am ESTABLISHING ROUTINES of healthy living, I will not allow temptation to cause me to stray from the path I have chosen. Others before me have felt the same way.
Sometimes I feel tired or stressed and do not want to continue on the path of choices I have made. I recognize these thoughts as temptation to quit. .. I recognize any un-faith-ful THOUGHT PATTERNS as temptations. I choose to switch my inner dialog so that my mind walks the walk along with my body. If I miss a day of walking or eat off of my set eating patterns, I will not crumble. I will pick back up and move forward. God will continue to show me ways to minimize temptation’s holds on me. I will focus on Him and my choices instead of the temptation. His rewards and mine are far better than that of temptation. Today I will do the best I can and not punish myself for any mistakes I make.
What I am doing right now is exactly what I should be doing. The past is done, and the future will take care of itself. There is time for everything I need to do in my life. I notice how relaxed God is about time. I resist the temptation to get impatient. Every moment of my life is full of meaning and to live life to the fullest I will enjoy every moment. My life is a long series of moments. I savor the watching of my life unfolding in the PACE God has set for me.
Today I will do one thing at a time. I will give it my full attention and will enjoy it thoroughly. The time I have is elastic. It stretches to include everything God has for me.
I savor the “sacred now” of my life. I am slowing down and noticing what is going on around me. I am making progress. I am committed to the process of progress. I have stopped questioning things and just am doing what I need to do. I will not fret over every detail or worry about failure or put tremendous pressure on myself. I will not allow any minor setbacks to set off alarms of anxiety. I trust the process and let things unfold at their own pace. When I do this, I cultivate peacefulness necessary for all growth and healing.
Mastery of healthy living happens, quietly, subconsciously and with faith. Things are doing just fine!
I do not worry about my life, what I will eat or drink or what I will wear. My life is more important than food or clothes. Even as the birds do not work hard at worry and they get fed, You, Father, tenderly care for me. I am more valuable than birds. If I worry, it will not add any years to my life or even bring me solutions to the things that I could worry about. I am well dressed even as You, Father clothe the flowers of the fields that do not worry.
I will not waver in my faith or make it smaller by worrying. I will feed my faith Your Word so it will grow. You, Father, know all my needs. I will seek You first and all these things I need will be given to me. Tomorrow You will care for me just like you do today! Father, I love walking in faith with You! I escape doubt and and embrace faith!
Everything else will take care of itself! I TRUST YOU LORD! I trust myself also to keep my intentions. You Lord fill me with hope and all joy and peace as I trust in You. As I trust You, this causes me to overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
Today I will do everything in my power to stay fit.
Today I will apply no pressure to myself to succeed. I trust it will happen naturally.
I just don’t talk the talk. I walk the walk. I am devoted to walking. It is part of my worship.
I come to You in my secret place and ask You in simple words for Your guidance and provision. I receive it in simplicity. I relax in You. Today I walk in silence for the beauty of walking with You and being in Your Presence. I come to be with You, for no other reason, but to enjoy You.
Perseverance? Discipline? What’s so hard about that? I consider it PURE JOY when I face difficult times or feel challenged. Continuing to do my healthy living routines when I don’t feel like it causes my faith to develop patience. My faith is maturing and becoming complete and lacks nothing as I focus in faith and keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep walking!
If I feel lacking in any area, I ask God for help. He gives to me generously without finding fault. He gives me he help I need. When I ask, I believe and not doubt that He will help me and I receive what I ask of Him. (James 1:2-6)
I have a spirit that is dedicated to being fully and exuberantly alive!
I make my habits and they make me. I can choose my habits and will choose carefully. I make a habit of the praise of You, God on my lips, speaking of Your Name I will boast about You. I seek You and You always answer me! You deliver me from all my fears. As I look to You, I am radiant and my face is never covered with shame. (Ps. 34:1-6)
Daily exercise is a part of me now. My cells crave it!
How I love to talk to You and meditate on Your Word! When my mind is free of distraction and focused in prayer, I get that daily dose of Your Spirit that keeps me strong! I do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world. I am being transformed by the renewing of my mind. With this renewed mind I am able to understand what God’s good, pleasing and perfect will is. (Rom. 2:2) Today I make the extra effort to set the world aside and let my mind enter the realm of the Spirit.
I don’t eat junk food and I don’t listen to junk sound. I fill my mind with good and Godly things and think about what the Lord has done for me. Today I will fill up my soul with powerful, energetic and uplifting music! I will also fill my mind with God’s Word.
I control my present, and make my own future. I will be exactly who God wants me to be. Whatever I do, I work at it with all my heart, as working for the Lord and not for men. (Col 3:2) Today I will act with integrity toward myself and will reach out to others with love and kindness.
Stress comes and goes, but as I keep exercising and walking and relaxing and trusting God’s plan, I’ll stay on an even keel and everything will take care of itself. Trouble and distress may come upon me, but Your commands are my delight. (Ps. 119:143) I keep my peace in difficult times by meditating on Your Word.
Today I will give it my all, do what I can, and not worry about what I can’t do. Today I walk in wholeness. I know that living a life of purpose requires me to take care of myself, outside and in, and to keep making sure I’m doing what I really believe in.
When I do not know how to pray, I allow the Spirit of God to rise up and pray through me. He who searches my heart knows the mind of the Spirit. (Rom. 8:26-28) I am a whole, sacred person. There is no one on earth like me. I’m going to have a blast while I’m here! Everyone has their imperfections, including me. I bear no one any malice. My love extends to all humankind, myself included. I walk in love and forgiveness towards others and myself. I clothe myself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. I bear with others and myself and forgive whatever grievances that arise. I forgive as God forgives me. Over all these virtues, I put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (Col. 3:12-14)
This day I begin with a clean slate. I hold nothing but love for myself and everyone that I meet. I will act in all of our best interests. Just as I am part of God’s plan, so is everyone else.
I’ve been so blessed in life. I know one of the greatest blessings is the chance to pass that on. I am always prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope I have. I do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. (I Peter 3:15-16)
Everyday I walk, I’m contributing not just to my own quality of life but to the quality of all the lives that touch mine. The changes I’ve made in my health through regular walking have improved my life so much and hardly cost me a cent. I wonder what other easy ways I can think of to improve the world around me.
Since I have all the encouragement, comfort of His love and fellowship with the Spirit, tenderness and compassion, my joy is made complete when I am like-minded, having the same love and being of one spirit and purpose. I do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. In humility I consider others over myself. I look not to my own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Phil. 2:1-4) Today I will make somebody else’s day!
I walk in love. Love is God’s essence. I won’t let others’ fears keep me from feeling that love and sharing it. God is love. I live in love and I live in God. Love is made complete among us so that I have confidence. There is no fear in love. Perfect love casts out all fear. Perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (I John 4:16-18)
I LOVE my life!!

I have this recorded in my own voice and repeat it again so I can say it with myself.
I listen to it when I am walking outside or stretching doing my Praise Moves...
