Be joyful

The joy of the Lord is my strength. I think it’s important to find a way to walk in joy, It’s not the will of God, for any of His people, to be negative. I believe those that truly seek the Lord, continuously feel His joy, and His peace, over all the craziness around them.

Time is running out and if we are miserable, we are not being a light to those we come into contact with. If we act like them, and still participate in the same things the world is doing how are we being a light. Be thankful and joyful, there are always things to be thankful for. Anyone can complain but it takes character to be joyful when things don’t seem to be ok. I love you I’m praying for all if us, but please pray for me and mine too.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
