BEYOND BLESSED

I can't even begin to tell you all the blessings God has bestowed upon me. First and foremost I just really want to thank Him for everything He's given me. I honestly am overwhelmed. I just came back from a Mannatech convention and something there really changed me. I used to always be skeptical when people would say things like "God spoke to me" or "God touched my life" because it never personally happened to me. I couldn't grasp the idea, like I would want to ask those people "what did God's voice sound like"? But after this weekend, I know exactly what they're talking about. It's like some divine spirit changed something in me. I used to always be known as that tough girl with a sailors mouth who did whatever she pleased whenever she pleased. I gave no regard to the consequences of my actions or the things I would say. I would always say things like "well this is how I am, take it or leave it!" Now I understand that that's the completely opposite of how I need to be. Especially as a Christian, I need to live for the Lord and show it w/ my everyday actions. It's already apparent to me that my life is pretty much under scrutiny. People always notice the things I do and post especially on social media networks like Facebook and Instagram. I need to be extra careful so my actions aren't perceived in the wrong manner. Instead of boasting of my success, I want to share it. With Mannatech, I can do exactly that. They have products that are so amazing and life changing that it's my obligation to share it with everyone I know. It's not something only the "older generation" needs to take, but easily any age group. We live in such a fast paced environment that convenience is key. It's so rare that anyone I know eats a home cooked meal every night. Most of my friends and co-workers eat out for almost every meal. And the things we're eating are always so high in calories, fat, sodium, and carbohydrates. Why not fix that? One of the products that they offer is called Nutriverus. It's basically healthy nutrients that come in powder form that you can mix into your food or drinks to at least help enhance it's nutritional value. I personally don't put it in my drinks because of the taste, but I sprinkle it over my dishes like as if it were salt. It's really never too early to start taking charge of your health, but you definitely don't want to wait til it's too late!
