If this activity is sustained for long enough, it will result in a conscious experience. In some case, thoughts are taken one step further, and the brain instructs the body to act on them, by sending signals to the muscles to make them contract.


And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

  • Actions certain areas are specialized to produce body movement. Brainstem modules control automatic internal actions, such as the lung and chest movements needed for breathing, the beating of the heart, and the constriction or dilation of blood vessels to control blood pressure. In conscious activities, the primary motor cortex sends, massages (via the cerebellum basal ganglia) to the muscles of the limbs, trunk, and head to create gross movements.
  • Thoughts The brain uses sensations, perceptions and emotions to generate action plans. Some of the plans give rise to internalized brain activity, or thoually generated by the motor areas, but has no visible sign. Some activity occurs in the hippocampus, which we experience as recollection.




When you allowed a thought of sexual sin to come, by thinking its okay to fornicate; therefore you allow an opportunity to sexual sprites to come, to encourage you to sin against your body and God.

  2. Forgiveness (Matthew 6:14-15, Isaiah 43:25-26, Acts 3:19)

Finding a Balance



Recommend on Facebook Tweet

On this Page

There’s a lot of talk about the different components of food. Whether you’re consuming carbohydrates, fats, or proteins all of them contain calories. If your diet focus is on any one of these alone, you’re missing the bigger picture.

Video – Finding a Balance

To support efforts to help individuals achieve caloric balance and to provide insights into ways in which communitites can be involved, CDC-TV has just released a new video in its “Health Matters” series “Finding a Balance” providing expert perspectives on caloric or “energy” balance and personal stories of how individuals have made changes in their lives to achieve this balance. Watch or download the video( (4:15 mins)


The Caloric Balance Equation

When it comes to maintaining a healthy weight for a lifetime, the bottom line is – calories count! Weight management is all about balance—balancing the number of calories you consume with the number of calories your body uses or “burns off.”

  • A calorie is defined as a unit of energy supplied by food. A calorie is a calorie regardless of its source. Whether you’re eating carbohydrates, fats, sugars, or proteins, all of them contain calories.
  • Caloric balance is like a scale. To remain in balance and maintain your body weight, the calories consumed (from foods) must be balanced by the calories used (in normal body functions, daily activities, and exercise).

Top of Page

If you are… Your caloric balance status is…
Maintaining your weight in balance.” You are eating roughly the same number of calories that your body is using. Your weight will remain stable.
Gaining weight in caloric excess.” You are eating more calories than your body is using. You will store these extra calories as fat and you’ll gain weight.
Losing weight in caloric deficit.” You are eating fewer calories than you are using. Your body is pulling from its fat storage cells for energy, so your weight is decreasing.

Am I in Caloric Balance?

If you are maintaining your current body weight, you are in caloric balance. If you need to gain weight or to lose weight, you’ll need to tip the balance scale in one direction or another to achieve your goal. If you need to tip the balance scale in the direction of losing weight, keep in mind that it takes approximately 3,500 calories below your calorie needs to lose a pound of body fat.1 To lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week, you’ll need to reduce your caloric intake by 500—1000 calories per day.2 To learn how many calories you are currently eating, begin writing down the foods you eat and the beverages you drink each day. By writing down what you eat and drink, you become more aware of everything you are putting in your mouth. Also, begin writing down the physical activity you do each day and the length of time you do it. Here are simple paper and pencil tools to assist you:

Want to try an interactive approach evaluate your food intake and physical activity? Go to the SuperTracker. The site will give you a detailed assessment and analysis of your current eating and physical activity habits.

Physical activities (both daily activities and exercise) help tip the balance scale by increasing the calories you expend each day.

Recommended Physical Activity Levels

  • 2 hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (i.e., brisk walking) every week and muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms).
  • Increasing the intensity or the amount of time that you are physically active can have even greater health benefits and may be needed to control body weight.
  • Encourage children and teenagers to be physically active for at least 60 minutes each day, or almost every day.
  • For more detail, see How much physical activity do you need?(

The bottom line is… each person’s body is unique and may have different caloric needs. A healthy lifestyle requires balance, in the foods you eat, in the beverages you consume, in the way you carry out your daily activities, and in the amount of physical activity or exercise you include in your daily routine. While counting calories is not necessary, it may help you in the beginning to gain an awareness of your eating habits as you strive to achieve energy balance. The ultimate test of balance is whether or not you are gaining, maintaining, or losing weight.

Questions and Answers About Calories

Q: Are fat-free and low-fat foods low in calories? A: Not always. Some fat-free and low-fat foods have extra sugars, which push the calorie amount right back up. The following list of foods and their reduced fat varieties will show you that just because a product is fat-free, it doesn’t mean that it is “calorie-free.” And, calories do count! See FAT-Free Versus Calorie Comparison for more information.

Always read the Nutrition Facts food label to find out the calorie content. Remember, this is the calorie content for one serving of the food item, so be sure and check the serving size. If you eat more than one serving, you’ll be eating more calories than is listed on the food label. For more information about the Nutrition Facts food label, visit How to Understand and Use the Nutrition Facts Food Label. Q: If I eat late at night, will these calories automatically turn into body fat? A: The time of day isn’t what affects how your body uses calories. It’s the overall number of calories you eat and the calories you burn over the course of 24 hours that affects your weight.

Q: I’ve heard it is more important to worry about carbohydrates than calories. Is this true? A: By focusing only on carbohydrates, you can still eat too many calories. Also, if you drastically reduce the variety of foods in your diet, you could end up sacrificing vital nutrients and not be able to sustain the diet over time.

Q: Does it matter how many calories I eat as long as I’m maintaining an active lifestyle A: While physical activity is a vital part of weight control, so is controlling the number of calories you eat. If you consume more calories than you use through normal daily activities and physical activity, you will still gain weight.

  1. What other factors contribute to overweight and obesity? A: Besides diet and behavior, environment, and genetic factors may also have an effect in causing people to be overweight and obese. For more, see Other Factors in Weight Gain(

Cutting Calories at Every Meal( You can cut calories by eating foods high in fiber, making better drink choices, avoiding portion size pitfalls, and adding more fruits and vegetables to your eating plan.

Losing Weight( Even a modest weight loss, such as 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight, can produce health benefits.

Physical Activity for a Healthy Weight( Physical activity can increase the number of calories your body uses for energy or “burns off.” The burning of calories through physical activity, combined with reducing the number of calories you eat, creates a “calorie deficit” that can help with weight loss.

Tips for Parents – Ideas to Help Children Maintain a Healthy Weight



Recommend on Facebook Tweet

On this Page

You’ve probably read about it in newspapers and seen it on the news: in the United States, the number of obese children and teens has continued to rise over the past two decades.1 You may wonder: Why are doctors and scientists troubled by this trend? And as parents or other concerned adults, you may also ask: What steps can we take to help prevent obesity in our children? This page provides answers to some of the questions you may have and provides you with resources to help you keep your family healthy.

Why is Childhood Obesity Considered a Health Problem?

Doctors and scientists are concerned about the rise of obesity in children and youth because obesity may lead to the following health problems:

  • Heart disease, caused by:

o    high cholesterol and/or

o    high blood pressure

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Sleep apnea
  • Social discrimination

Childhood obesity is associated with various health-related consequences. Obese children and adolescents may experience immediate health consequences and may be at risk for weight-related health problems in adulthood.

Psychosocial Risks

Some consequences of childhood and adolescent overweight are psychosocial. Obese children and adolescents are targets of early and systematic social discrimination.2 The psychological stress of social stigmatization can cause low self-esteem which, in turn, can hinder academic and social functioning, and persist into adulthood.3

Cardiovascular Disease Risks

Obese children and teens have been found to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), including high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and abnormal glucose tolerance. In a population-based sample of 5- to 17-year-olds, almost 60% of overweight children had at least one CVD risk factor while 25 percent of overweight children had two or more CVD risk factors.2

Additional Health Risks

Less common health conditions associated with increased weight include asthma, hepatic steatosis, sleep apnea and Type 2 diabetes.

  • Asthma is a disease of the lungs in which the airways become blocked or narrowed causing breathing difficulty. Studies have identified an association between childhood overweight and asthma.4, 5
  • Hepatic steatosis is the fatty degeneration of the liver caused by a high concentration of liver enzymes. Weight reduction causes liver enzymes to normalize.2
  • Sleep apnea is a less common complication of overweight for children and adolescents. Sleep apnea is a sleep-associated breathing disorder defined as the cessation of breathing during sleep that lasts for at least 10 seconds. Sleep apnea is characterized by loud snoring and labored breathing. During sleep apnea, oxygen levels in the blood can fall dramatically. One study estimated that sleep apnea occurs in about 7% of overweight children.6
  • Type 2 diabetes is increasingly being reported among children and adolescents who are overweight.7 While diabetes and glucose intolerance, a precursor of diabetes, are common health effects of adult obesity, only in recent years has Type 2 diabetes begun to emerge as a health-related problem among children and adolescents. Onset of diabetes in children and adolescents can result in advanced complications such as CVD and kidney failure.8

In addition, studies have shown that obese children and teens are more likely to become obese as adults.9, 10

What Can I Do As a Parent or Guardian to Help Prevent Childhood Overweight and Obesity?

To help your child maintain a healthy weight, balance the calories your child consumes from foods and beverages with the calories your child uses through physical activity and normal growth.

Remember that the goal for overweight and obese children and teens is to reduce the rate of weight gain while allowing normal growth and development. Children and teens should NOT be placed on a weight reduction diet without the consultation of a health care provider.

Balancing Calories: Help Kids Develop Healthy Eating Habits

One part of balancing calories is to eat foods that provide adequate nutrition and an appropriate number of calories. You can help children learn to be aware of what they eat by developing healthy eating habits, looking for ways to make favorite dishes healthier, and reducing calorie-rich temptations. Encourage healthy eating habits.   There’s no great secret to healthy eating. To help your children and family develop healthy eating habits:

  • Provide plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products.
  • Include low-fat or non-fat milk or dairy products.
  • Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, lentils, and beans for protein.
  • Serve reasonably-sized portions.
  • Encourage your family to drink lots of water.
  • Limit sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • Limit consumption of sugar and saturated fat.

Remember that small changes every day can lead to a recipe for success!

For more information about nutrition, visit and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010.

Look for ways to make favorite dishes healthier. The recipes that you may prepare regularly, and that your family enjoys, with just a few changes can be healthier and just as satisfying. Remove calorie-rich temptations! Although everything can be enjoyed in moderation, reducing the calorie-rich temptations of high-fat and high-sugar, or salty snacks can also help your children develop healthy eating habits. Instead only allow your children to eat them sometimes, so that they truly will be treats! Here are examples of easy-to-prepare, low-fat and low-sugar treats that are 100 calories or less:

  • A medium-size apple
  • A medium-size banana
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup grapes
  • 1 cup carrots, broccoli, or bell peppers with 2 tbsp. hummus

Balancing Calories: Help Kids Stay Active

Another part of balancing calories is to engage in an appropriate amount of physical activity and avoid too much sedentary time. In addition to being fun for children and teens, regular physical activity has many health benefits, including:

  • Strengthening bones
  • Decreasing blood pressure
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Increasing self-esteem
  • Helping with weight management

Help kids stay active. Children and teens should participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity most days of the week, preferably daily.11 Remember that children imitate adults. Start adding physical activity to your own daily routine and encourage your child to join you. Some examples of moderate intensity physical activity include:

  • Brisk walking
  • Playing tag
  • Jumping rope
  • Playing soccer
  • Swimming
  • Dancing

Reduce sedentary time. In addition to encouraging physical activity, help children avoid too much sedentary time. Although quiet time for reading and homework is fine, limit the time your children watch television, play video games, or surf the web to no more than 2 hours per day. Additionally, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend television viewing for children age 2 or younger.12 Instead, encourage your children to find fun activities to do with family members or on their own that simply involve more activity.

Why is it important to eat vegetables?

Eating vegetables provides health benefits – people who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Vegetables provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body.



  • Most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories. None have cholesterol. (Sauces or seasonings may add fat, calories, and/or cholesterol.)
  • Vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C.
  • Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Vegetable sources of potassium include sweet potatoes, white potatoes, white beans, tomato products (paste, sauce, and juice), beet greens, soybeans, lima beans, spinach, lentils, and kidney beans.
  • Dietary fiber from vegetables, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease. Fiber is important for proper bowel function. It helps reduce constipation and diverticulosis. Fiber-containing foods such as vegetables help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.
  • Folate (folic acid) helps the body form red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who may become pregnant should consume adequate folate from foods, and in addition 400 mcg of synthetic folic acid from fortified foods or supplements. This reduces the risk of neural tube defects, spina bifida, and anencephaly during fetal development.
  • Vitamin A keeps eyes and skin healthy and helps to protect against infections.
  • Vitamin C helps heal cuts and wounds and keeps teeth and gums healthy. Vitamin C aids in iron absorption.

Health benefits

  • Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart disease, including heart attack and stroke.
  • Eating a diet rich in some vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain types of cancers.
  • Diets rich in foods containing fiber, such as some vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
  • Eating vegetables and fruits rich in potassium as part of an overall healthy diet may lower blood pressure, and may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss.
  • Eating foods such as vegetables that are lower in calories per cup instead of some other higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake.

Nutrients and Health Benefits

Relationship: Part 3



Part 1: I had shared a testimony, about idols. If you are not careful in all you do, you can make someone are something out of an idol; being a women or man after God heart, and having desire to be married can affect your relationship with God by being so anxious about it or constantly dwelling on it. Instead of doing all of that, you can lay it down before God and He will take care of all your desire you have in your heart.

Part 2: I talk about the mind, freedom, lust, and relationship. One of the biggest thing the enemy attack Christian is there mind, and weakness. That’s why it’s very important to build a relationship with God so you can overcome the potholes of the world.


The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18

 Failure to know where the battle take place is detrimental because you’ll keep trying to fix the problem with the wrong solution, often making matters worse. The battle for sexual purity is the battle of the mind. The war takes place in the brain. It is possible for a man to genuinely love Christ but fail to stop his addiction on his own.

I get so mad at the devil when I hear young people being wrap up in pornography, fornication, low self-esteem, and hearing young women allowing man sexual abuse them. Nevertheless, there more young people have babies out of marriage; being a single mother is not easy at all. 2013 the average percent, was 72% of young people having babies out of wedlock; that percent was in 2013, we are now in 2016. I become a single mother in 2003, I was very young with a very low self-esteem and was abuse physical, emotional by my mother. Before my father pass, they both seem like they were happy. But the biggest thing they could not give to me was love. Now I’m 29 of age, I got save in 2010. The more I started to build my relationship with God the more I begin to know myself more, and my purpose God has for me on this earth. Deeper I go with God the more I can help my child, by giving her an understanding of real love, not love from this world but love from God. Every day I will tell her “Love you and God have a purpose for your life”…. My Child is now 12 of age. She is so smart very open with me now!!! So, excited what God is doing in my life; he can also do it for you. You don’t have to live in sin and chase after mans, you can make a decision now and chase after God.


If we say that we have no sin we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness 1 John 1:8-9

Being free from all sin. you would have to come to God with a humbles heart and surrender everything to Him.

Definition for surrender: to agree to stop fighting, hiding, resisting, etc.; because you know that you will not win or succeed.

With that being said. If you are fighting your flesh to stop sinning against your own body, it will never happen because you are not your own creator, you would have to give it to God.


  • Where the battle takes place:

– mind

See 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, James 4:1 and James 1:14

  • Sinning against your body:

– In 1 Corinthians 6:18, Paul explains that sexual sins are not like other types of sins. When you sexually sin, you sin against your own body. with brain science, we now know that when you have a sexual release, your brain gets flooded with neuron chemicals that are as strong as drugs. So when you are sexually acting out, you are restricting your brain and setting yourself up for sexual bondage.

See  – James 1:14-15

Whatever attracts and holds you attention will eventually control the direction of your life. -Paul Cole

–          Peace

–          Trouble

–          Afraid

When you are deal with a co-worker, child not acting right, seeming like you out of order, making minimum wage, negative words. God said: “Peace”. So, God already given you the peace you overcome it. Lay down all you trouble and burden up on the Lord; and to not to be afraid once you had given it to him.

  1. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:6

You would have to acknowledge God paths. Not your boyfriend, not your girlfriend, not your job, not your kids, not people opinion, but God. H is the only one that can and will direct your path.

  1. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon him: for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7


-Read Romans 7:21-25

Unfortunately, many spiritual leaders, with the best intentions, have mistakenly treated sexual bondage as a moral problem. Men have been told that if they pray harder, read there Bible more, act more Christ-like————- if they try harder—- they would get healed. Some have even had their pastors lay hands on them and the spiritual oppression may lift for awhile, but because these men not been given a process they find themselves falling back to the same old habit.

Failure to know where the battle takes place is detrimental because you’ll keep trying to fix the problem with the wrong solution, often making matter worse. The battle for sexual purity is the battle of the mind. The war takes place in the brain. It is possible for a man to genuinely love Christ but fail to stop his addiction on this own.


 If we want to overcome lust, we need to recognize what we are dealing with.

Note: adultery is when someone have sex, with another person outside of marriage. Also, if you lust over a woman/men you had already committed adultery in your heart with her.

–          Lack of-control

–          Lust: always creep in, when you are bored, stress and overwhelm

–          Lust: not a passing glance but a willful, calculated stare that arouses sexual desire.


A man is a visual person. They wouldn’t care how much you talk to them about a situation are a problem, unless you put it together like a puzzle to help them to see your point by helping them to see the vision. also, a man doesn’t take long to be inside of the store because they already know what they need before they even walk in. This is the same way when they are after women if they see the vision and qualifications in her; they wouldn’t have any doubts to chase after her. This is why most of the time the men have to slow down and seek God first because you can fall very quickly by not thinking and make a decision to quick.


And it come to pass when he was in a certain city. behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he put forth his hand touched him, saying , I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. Luke 5:12-13

Planning Meals



Recommend on Facebook Tweet

On this Page

You eat in a variety of places – your home, work, restaurants, maybe even your car. For some of these places, you have more control over what choices are available than others. Since high-calorie foods are everywhere, it’s important to take the time to plan ahead to make sure you have healthy options available.

Meals at Home

Whether you are cooking for just yourself, one to two people, or a larger group, planning meals is a good place to start improving your food choices. Taking the time to plan a healthy evening meal can help you avoid a less healthful “drive-through” dinner.

To start, grab a pencil and paper and list your favorite meals. It may help to talk to your family or thumb through a favorite cook book. Some of the meals will be healthier than others, but for now, just write them all down.

You might want to use SuperTracker: My Plan. The plan will show you your daily food group targets — what and how much to eat within your calorie allowance. It can help you plan your upcoming meals to meet your weight goals and suggest ways to improve choices.

Once you’ve planned your meals, make a grocery list. Take some time on your visit to the grocery store to choose lower-calorie ingredients. Here are some ideas that may help:

  • Many casseroles and meat sauces use cream soups as a base. Use a low-fat cream soup.
  • Substitute a low-fat cheese in casseroles and vegetable sauces. When using sharply flavored cheese, such as cheddar and parmesan, you can usually reduce the amount in a recipe to save calories without sacrificing flavor.
  • Try a non-stick cooking spray or a small amount of cooking oil for sautéing instead of frying with solid fat.
  • If you’re using ground beef for tacos or meat sauce for spaghetti, look for a lower-fat variety such as ground round or ground sirloin or try using skinless ground turkey breast. Once you’ve browned the meat, drain to remove excess fat.
  • Instead of full-fat versions of mayonnaises, butter, and salad dressings, try those that are lower in calories, total fat, saturated fat, and trans fat.
  • Check out the frozen food aisles for quick, low-calorie vegetable side dishes. You can find cut green beans, sliced carrots, and other chopped vegetables in the frozen food section. Avoid the ones with added cream, butter, or cheese sauces as these ingredients can add calories. You can steam these vegetables quickly in the microwave.
  • In some soups and entrees, you may also be able to add dry beans to extend the recipe and improve the nutritional value. This is easy to do in vegetable-based soups and chili. You can just add a cup of canned white beans, kidney beans, or pinto beans to the recipe. As another example, if you are making enchiladas, rinse a can of black beans and add these to the ground meat.



” Lord I want my husband to be very handsome, with big mussels. of course, he has to love God and attending church.”

I spend two years of my life writing journal-after-journal. Yes. God give the desire of my heart but, it wastes the thing God wanted for me. In my last 2 years God spoke to me, that I was spending more time wanting a relationship instead of focusing more on God. I had to humble myself before the Lord with a forgiving heart, to real allowed God to fully come in without having anymore idols.

little children, keep yourselves from idols A’-men. (1 John 5:21)

Many of us confined our life wanting to be marry, hoping and praying that the “one” will come and trying to a perfect lifestyle in our own flesh.

First of all: when we try so hard to compare ourselves and looking for mistakes in other, and wanting thing so bad it can effect our relationship with God. Also, it can stop are showy you down on what God is calling you to do on this earth. Because God cannot use anyone when they is making idols of something or even yourself.

Bible Verses

  • There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.(Psalm 81:9)e
  • Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not  fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Deuteronomy 31:6


  • facts and figures: A study for over 300 data points discovered that 60-70% of men, 50-58% of pastors, and 20-30% of women in evangelical churches are sexually addicted.
  • A secret idol:  Finding satisfaction in sexuality, rather than in God, is a from of idol worship because it replaces our need for and reverence God.
