It is good to sing praises to God

The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. Psalms 147:2-3 KJV

Been a bit all over the place lately, and these two verses struck me…God is in control, He will wrap things up in the end for the good of those that love Him…God will sustain me, God will never leave me…God knows my frustrations, my groanings, my pain, other’s pain…

God heals those broken in their hearts, binding up the physical, spiritual and mental wounds that we have…God builds us up, and through the ‘outcast’ He shows His greatest work…

Praising God at the moment…just thought I’d share these verses for those that need encouragement…

Physical and Spiritual Fitness

I believe it’s important to realize that weight loss, and maintaining a healthy weight while not getting to said size in an unhealthy manner is critical.

Hi, I’m Hannah and 32 as of this past Sept. 2025. (Waves)
This blog is a Christian (not in name only) focused one.
The Lord is King over all, and that includes over this body He has fashioned together skillfully.
Background of myself: I am healed from a few issues that controlled my life for a long time. The first was Anorexia coupled with diet pill upper abuse. (legal yes ephedrine over the counter but still abusing my body)
Around highschool age (16, fitting that it’s now 16 years later that I’ve come full circle) I joined weight watchers back in 2001-2002, but for the wrong reasons. I didn’t know it at the time, but I have High Functioning Autism (then known as asperger’s)
Went away to college after an awful 12th grade year, graduated with honers but didn’t really register what was going on around me.
Dizzy spells were common (by college I was counting calories less then 1000 a day for my 5’8″ frame and overexercising, ephedrine abuse to top all that off)
I didn’t think much wrong, until the bottom dropped out around November of my first year away…I started cutting myself and there after struggled with cutting for about 9 years…
Fast Forward I was dismissed from the school with a 3.0 GPA despite all I was putting myself and others through…
About nine years later I was struggling with overeating and massive cutting…it got really awful, still I feel bad but realize that isn’t who I am any longer…
I went away to get some tools and healing for the issues mainly the cutting and here I am two years later self harm free and stable…only thanks to God, to those who came alongside me to help me, and gritting my way through the issue to the other side…
Almost two and a half years later, to God be all the glory for serious he is so good…
While I was away in treatment, the food was in a kitchen, and I only got down to about 232 or so after seven months away from home…other girls got down to 190’ish who were around my height (they were not on as many meds) I was working out 5 days a week (we all did)
Home again, working out more but the weight crept back up, now I’m around 256, last year 240s, year before 230’s…
In a nutshell I was going to get gastric surgery done, but decided against it because I wanted to give WW a shot again (this time for the right reasons)
I have figured if by January next year if I’m not at least in the 230’s I’ll look at getting a gastric sleeve but I have nothing to lose…I’ve also switched up my anti depressant to one that is weight neutral, the one I was on before was weight resistant meaning it hindered weight loss)
I was in the 260’s and now have dropped and leveled but inch wise have lost a lot…I’m attempting to be patient with myself and my body…
I have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for…I would have been dead had it not been for the Lord, and for obeying Him…
Each post, and about every two weeks or so that I go to the gym (I’ve started going about 3-4 times a week again) I will post a verse that is convicting and in some way relates to spiritual fitness as well as physical fitness…
I leave you with the following verse:
Therefore I do not run uncertainly (without definite aim). I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary. 1 Corinthians 9:26

God Holds On, and Never Lets go…

My playlist I usually just tune out, but today I listened as I pushed myself extra hard for about 3 30 second bouts in the 35 minute workout on this stair stepper elliptical machine (This thing burns, in a good way! without any joint pain)

The song that kept coming to mind or that registered while I was sweating up a storm was ‘Never Let Go’ meaning God…
‘You hold on and You never let go, You are faithful forever I know. You hold on and you hear me, and I will not be afraid, you hold on and you never let go etc.’
On the way out of the gym I was feeling just so good, not only from the workout but from re-committing not only to workout 4 times weekly but also only listen to worship and faith building music…
I will say it’s a bit like a kick in the pants with cold water to the face, but it’s worth it because I am building up my spiritual character muscle as well as physical…
Be encouraged, God never let’s go of those that are His!
Today’s Verse:
I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
Philippians 4:13

Voice of the Martyrs Radio

The Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 promised great things for the Iranian people. The mullahs that took over the nation promised an Islamic paradise on earth. More than 35 years later, Iran’s people have lost hope in their government, and in the religion it upholds. Dr. Hormoz Shariat speaks daily to millions of Iranians through satellite television. He shares the hope of Jesus with a nation that has lost hope in their Islamic government, and he sees great waves of people who have rejected Islam now embracing Jesus, the Savior. This week on VOM Radio, Pastor Hormoz shares exciting things God is doing in Iran and challenges Christians in the United States to be as committed to our God as radical Muslims in the Middle East are committed to theirs.

Micah 6:8 (What does God Want?)

He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]

Free Indeed

God broke through,

When all looked done.


He has won.

Caged heart,

Often pierced.

Wept aloud,

His love proved fierce.

God saves,

From my own dark.

My ears strain,

To hear His Heart.

God is God and I am Not

A great many things wonder through my mind of the happenings that are going on…but my Savior King gently turns my attention back to His Beauty…

I was callous to this leading at one time, but the more time I spent in the presence of Yeshua, just worshiping Him, not admiring others that do this but myself actually carving out time for God to listen to His heart…

Getting into His word, not just inspired devotionals but, God’s Word…

For example: a through the year reading plan of some sort even if just one chapter of said readings and asking God to highlight one scripture you as His child would be surprised how the Holy Spirit will do just that…

You’ll remember the one thing for that day, I recommend you bring a pen and pad so you can write out what the Spirit leads, SOAP is a method I use…

Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer…all three written down in long hand even if each part is written down at different moments of the day, the times or time of day that you are at your most productive and awake, give Him that time even if it’s just ten devoted minutes…

Even chunks of ‘good time’ you will start to think, act and sound like Jesus and those times whenever they are, you as His child will develop an excitement and hunger to spend time with your heavenly Dad!

God is Calling, Will You Listen?

My Love calls over His Holy Hills, He is up from His Holy Home to greet those who seek the treasures He lavishes on those that have the nerve to ask…

Dad, Father Above, Absence of Conflict, Lord of all things good, Father of lights; I love you so much, but you so much more…

I become misty eyed over your tenderness, over your goodness…This gift is too precious to keep but must be given away, just as you gave it all away to gain it all because of the ‘Joy set before You.’

Oh heavenly Father, from the first breath to the final; you hear my cries, needs, you tenderly watch over me…I lift my eyes to the maker of the Heavens and the keeper of my heart…My love, my loverI am full to overflowing, your mercy is new and reborn again with every cresting sun rise…

You paint the sky’s with  your mercy, with your brilliance…be it the night star showers, red moons of wonder or the clouds with the heaven’s azure sunflower floorboards!

Words cannot describe how great and wonderful you are…I want to share this Love with others and don’t care if I look a fool for doing so in my zeal for You Lord! 

Adonai is Good!

An Explosive God (in a good way)

I love this song!

I love the way God has captured Paul’s heart with the lyrics within, it just screams ‘God I love you!’ 

One day I’m going to sing this song, cover it if you will. I love singing to God, praises to Him, just loving on Him at His feet. There really isn’t any better place to be then at God’s feet.

Praise report: God is helping me come off and transition onto my new anti-depressant! that is a huge deal, I’ve been taking this stuff for 7 years, It’s a miracle!

A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. Such an event may be attributed to a supernatural being.

The supernatural being of ADONAI has also healed the bunion in my left foot!

God is just too good beyond words, beyond anything I could type out.

The only thing I think of is: ‘They overcame by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, even unto death’

God is very much alive and active, and very much is still healing! Praise God! I love Him just I feel as though I could just explode with praise or something… 😛

Hope this blesses you all.
