Type 2 Diabetes is a Full Blown Epidemic
It has been estimated that over one-third of the adult population of America is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and treated with Metformin. Another one-third of the population experiences Type 2 diabetes but not officially diagnosed and treated. Because the increase in obesity and general population overweight results in fatty liver disease and, therefore, the inability to manage proper blood sugar levels. Metformin, the prescribed medication, was originally derived from a natural substance. Unfortunately, it is now synthesized and no longer represents a natural substance. However, two natural substances, a combination of purslane and mulberry leaf extract in approximately 1,000 mg dosage, when taken together, based on a recent study, are 27-30% more effective than Metformin and no side effects. But always consult with your physician.

When Things Are Out of Control
Every day, we have opportunities to get upset, be frustrated, or get offended. Maybe you had plans that didn’t work out, or someone was rude to you at the office. Maybe you were doing something that should have taken one hour and it ended up taking three. Life is full of inconveniences, but even though we can’t always control our circumstances, we can control our reaction. I heard somebody say, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond.”
We should always go out each day with a positive attitude, full of hope and expecting God’s favor. But at the same time, we should recognize that most days are not going to go exactly as we plan. Remember, we were created to live in peace. Peace is our position of power. If you get stressed because you got off schedule or upset because your child wouldn’t eat his breakfast, or frustrated because somebody offended you, what you’re doing is giving away your power. Instead, make the decision to release those offenses and disappointments so you can live in peace and enjoy the day as the blessing God prepared for you!
Father in heaven, today I release every care, concern, offense and disappointment to You. I choose to keep the peace that You have given me. I look forward to today knowing that You are with me, leading me in victory in Jesus’ name! Amen.
