Prayer Chain - linkup #1

I am really excited about the prayer chain linkup that Amy & Melissa Jo have started. 

Amy & Melissa Jo are both recent blog faves of mine ... both girls are beautiful (inside & out), and obviously love the Lord. They are passionate in talking about Him & they make the blogger world  a better place. That's the truth! :) 

They decided to have a prayer chain linkup.

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.
Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises. 
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them 
pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 

James 5: 13-14

You can post a praise report, a prayer request, or both.  They only ask that you agree to pray for one other person in the linkup. They personally will pray for EACH & EVERY prayer request. God laid it on their hearts to do this. How awesome is that?! I think this is one of the best linkups EVER, and i am thrilled to join them! 

{PRAISE REPORT}

 -I started my new job last week, and it's going really well. i have fallen in love with the coworkers, and it is TRULY an answer to prayer! 

-Eating right is always a struggle for me. But i am trying very hard to eliminate bad foods from my diet. I've had no soda since November 15th, since then i've cut out a lot of junk from my diet & eat pretty healthy. But i still STRUGGLE! This weekend was my BIRTHDAY weekend, and i did not cheat! We ate with friends at the Cheesecake Bistro on Friday night, and with family at Coyote Blues (mexican) on Saturday, and i didn't cheat! WHAT!?!?! :) So thankful God gave me the strength to do this, and that i didn't use "it's my birthday" as an excuse!

{PRAYER REQUEST}

 -I need to catch on quickly at work... so that i know what to do and when to do it! I know I've only been there one week, but busy season is about to hit, and there's not really time for anyone to teach me stuff. But i can't read minds... so pray that God will give me the ability to catch on quickly, to do a great job, to not mess anything up & make it WORSE! Haha. (I"m laughing but i'm serious!) Also, I seem to be getting sick... which just cannot happen!

-I need prayer that i will CONTINUE to eat healthy! That i will continue eating veggies, fruits, meats, nuts, etc... and will stay away from sweets, sugar, bread, etc. :) I really do need prayer for this. This isn't about me looking great. This is about me reversing Insulin Resistance & being able to conceive in the very near future (because IR is what is keeping this from happening at the moment. And it sucks. But IR is reversible! So there's hope!) :)

(I don't talk about that much on the blog. I do a little more on my weightloss blog. And you can see my last post for a little more insight.)

Thanks so much for your prayers. How can i pray for YOU?

P.S. I gave you TWO prayer requests... oops! I hope this is allowed! ;)
