You Can Ask

SuperStarrs, I want you to know that, You Can Ask God for whatever you are dreaming of!!!  Maybe you have Never heard that before and think it sounds selfish.  Maybe you have but you are just not asking.  In today’s video I am sharing all about asking and to keep asking!!!  This video is proof that God answers us if we take it to Him, ask and work towards what we are dreaming.  Us working towards it, is us showing Him our faith that we believe that He will help us to achieve it.   Whatever “It” is.

God Loves You More than you could ever love yourself!!!  He wants you to do Great things. He wants you to have Peace, Love, Joy, & Success.  As I am putting this post all together I am being reminded of this truth!!! This video was recorded in July of this past Summer & as I was watching & editing it I realized that I am looking at the face of the old me. Even though it was just a few months ago I can totally see in my face that God is still moving me towards my end goal.  Step by Step, pound by pound. So incase you were watching this video & wondering if I have gained weight back, NO. I just had others that I wanted to share before posting this message.  However the Super Cool thing is that sometimes we can think that the progress we have made isn’t really making a difference. Then you see yourself in a video or picture & realize that progress is happening!!! I’m here to tell ya every bit is still progress & it IS making a difference.  Not just in your life but, in every person that is watching you!!!  Just the other day as I was going thru the Starbucks drive-thru, the baristas, two of them said “Girl you are shrinking so small. Your face is so different.”.  Of course it TOTALLY brighten my day, in fact today I’m still talking about it!!! 🙂  My point is that they see me every time I treat myself to delicious Starbucks. Which might be pretty frequent. 😉  They can tell that God is doing an Amazing Healing in me.  Another Super Cool experience of this happening was last year at Joyce Meyer Love Life Conference.  I’ll never forget talking with a couple ladies before a session & when they asked me my age.  I told them & they both responded with “Wow I though you were in your 20’s!!!”  That felt so Amazingly Super Cool!!! Especially since I’m 37 & getting closer to 40 than my 30’s. You can’t buy anything anti-aging like that!!!  An added bonus of losing weight slow & controlled is your skin has time to tighten up while it’s healing.  God used the healing of my skin to be able to show these ladies the benefits of drinking water, sleeping & eating from God’s garden.  That it’s not just weight loss, there is so much more to be able to enjoy on this journey!!! I was able to share with them my website & social media accounts so that they could continue hearing me share my story of healing.  While they all are watching this Determined Debbie do this Amazing transformation it opens the door for them to ask me how & what I am doing.  That’s when I am able to share Jesus with them.  Because I can’t share my story without sharing Jesus.  He Is my story!!!  My pray & hope is that they will be inspired of what God can do for them!!!  What God has done for me He can & wants to do for them too!!!  And for YOU!!!  Just start asking & He will lead & guide you where He wants to take you.  Who would of thought that God could use someone losing weight & getting healthy to share His message of Healing & Hope.  He did!!!

SuperStarrs Remember Matthew 7:7-12 Keep Asking, Keep Seeking, Keep Knocking!!!

What have you been wanting to ask God for???

When are you gonna start asking???

Who will be effected or inspired from watching you on your “In The Weighting” Journey???

Watching Jimmy Stewart in this movie reminds me so much of my Grandpa, Darrell Hawkins. He was tall, slender, handsome and dressed like Classic Hollywood Actor.  Grandpa always wore slacks, nice sweaters & hats.  He had a cool collection of hats!!! And I’m not talking about the beanies & stocking caps guys wear now because they are to lazy to comb their hair. Grandpa did always had a comb in his back pocket to fix his hair whenever he got caught in a wind storm.  However its not just about his appearance and the memories of watching this movie with him.  It’s more about the story of a man trying to do the right thing but somehow there’s always some new obstacle to overcome.  My Grandpa might not have had a lot of worldly riches but he did have the most important!!! He was rich in his Faith, Hope & Love!!!  He loved Jesus & his Family!!! My 1st memories of my Grandpa is driving me to Sunday School in the church bus.  He shared God’s love for everyone, with everyone, everywhere he went.  In fact it was just this Summer that I found out, he was written up a few times at work for sharing Jesus & praying with others at work.  He often left reading material in the men’s bathroom. This happened so frequently that the company encouraged him to retire early!!! I LOVE IT!!!  I just wonder how many guys were encouraged or learned for the 1st time of God’s love for them while reading during their bathroom break???  My Grandpa is now with Jesus, so he knows and I will be patient “In The Weighting” until I get there, to find out.  My Grandpa raised 7 boys… yes you read that right SEVEN BOYS!!!  My Grandparents tried & tried to have a girl, seven boys later decided it wasn’t happening for them but, then I was the 1st born Grandchild!!! 🙂  However that’s another story for another time.  My point is that My Grandpa’s Children carry on the Hawkins legacy & name.  In fact at our Hawkins Reunion every year, we make up over 2/3 of the people that attend.  If ever we all decided to stop going they’d only have a handful of people there.  I am the oldest of 18 Grandkids, there’s currently 18 Great Grandkids and another one on the way due in March.  Grandpa was the youngest of 6 in his family so he did come from a big family. He just really lived out the “be fruitful & multiply” verse found in Genesis 1:28.

My Grandpa Darrell Hawkins on the left Jimmy Stewart on the right.

My point is My Grandpa was Awesome & I AM SO THANKFUL FOR MY HAWKINS FAMILY!!! We are not perfect & we have had our share of drama throughout the years. As with ALL families.  You can’t do life with this many people and not have had it!!!  We have all made a lot of great memories along the way.  We all live our own lives & do our own adventures but we also make time a few times a year, to get together to make more memories!!! We always know that we have each others back!!!  I know that is such a Blessing because not every family has what we Hawkins have!!! (Yes I know I’m a SuperStarr now but I’ll always be a Hawkins!!!)  Ya see what some people have and take for granted, others are praying for!!!

Even if you don’t like the house you live in, someone is praying for one.

Your job really sucks somedays, someone is praying to get hired where you work.

You son or daughter is being high maintenance this season, someone is praying to become a parent.

You’ve been frustrated with your spouse lately, someone single is praying to find their future spouse.

So SuperStarrs, we all have something to Thank God for.  Even if we are not where we want to be or have what we want, we can still be rich in Faith, Hope & Love!!!  It’s up to us everyday to continue choosing them!!!  We choose how rich in them we want to be.  No one is in control of our thinking or actions but us!!! No matter how others treat us, we can choose Faith, Hope & Love in Jesus!!!  The Greatest of these is Love!!! Love God, others & ourselves!!! When we keep it simple then, we can really see It IS A Wonderful Life!!!

SuperStarrs, I really want you to know that You matter & God’s got Great plans for YOU!!! There will never be another You!!! My Husband has identical twin. Even though they both look & act alike, they are both two totally different people. God is using both of them for different purposes that they can only do!!!  Bob builds & fixes with his hands.  Bernie plays drums & helps lead worship for his church.  Bernie can’t build a house & Bob can’t play the drums.  They are both irreplaceable for their purpose.  You can not be replaced!!! It’s so important for you to know this truth!!!  If you have believed a lie, then replace it with this Truth.  You are Loved & Irreplaceable!!! Having a healthy mind will help you to be successful on your journey.  Our thoughts become our actions. Our actions become our habits. Having healthy habits lead to having a healthy mind & body.  That’s the end goal!!!

Who are you Thankful for???

How is Your Life Wonderful???

What are you gonna start doing to choose Faith, Hope & Love daily???

Remember You are a SuperStarr!!!

Be Patient & Make Healthy Choices while You are “In The Weighting”!!!
