the power of G3

Is 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Gatorade now has a protein recovery drink, called G3 that you drink after exercising to promote muscle recovery to get you ready for your next workout. I saw it @ Dick's yesterday and it made me think...

As a child of God, what is my the source of my 'recovery'? Where do I get my will (the desire to continue) and power (the energy to continue) or simply put 'willpower'? Just how much of it we have determines how much self-control and how much strength we possess. In essence, it determines our success. So isn't it important to identify the source of this important substance for us?

He said we are called by the greatness of HIS power. He reminds us that because HE is Strong in power, WE (that are connected to HE) SHALL NOT FAIL!!!!

Wow! That resonates to me. I finally understand 'blessed assurance'. I cannot fail! Imagining now that I'm fighting this battle against my weight (or any other battles for that matter) and once again (cuz I gotta do it everyday) God reminds me, that as long as I remember that I am called by the greatness of HIS power; when I am tired He will increase my strength. When I'm weak He'll give me power!

That's my G3!!!!! (I laughed to myself) I can activate my G3 before and after every workout. Before and after each meal. Before and after each snack. Before and after every setback or perilous thought. G3-Father/Son/Holy Ghost. That's our G3 and its supply is endless. It restores, empowers, encourages and even more it comforts, it/He (God) is EVERY SINGLE THING we need! There will never need to be a product replacement or an upgrade. G3, its a revolution. Don't forget to be a part of it!

Congratulations Time! (quick video online)

Recipe: Wild Sockeye Salmon Piccata

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

4 - 8 oz fresh sockeye salmon fillet portions
Cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup capers, rinsed and drained
1 fresh lemon, 1/2 for juice and 1/2 for garnish
ground black pepper to taste
optional parsley for garnish

Salmon Picatta

In a large no-stick sauté pan, spray with cooking spray over medium-high heat.
Season the salmon fillets and place them in the sauté pan. Cook the fillets for 2 minutes and turn the fillets once.
Add the garlic and pepper to the pan and when the garlic starts to turn brown, deglaze with the wine.
Add the chicken broth and capers and reduce by half.
Turn the fish one more time and squeeze half the lemon over the fillets and sauce.
Remove and garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Prayer: Lord prepare me. Revive me. Replenish me. Restore me. Thank you for surrounding me with your love and allowing me to be a part of lives around me and make a difference. A positive difference in their lives while at the same time, make a positive difference in my own life. As happy as I am Lord, I am also moved with sadness. I can let a burden overtake me. I have to turn it over to you and remind myself that I am not in any of this alone. Help me to examine myself every day and find what you see in me. Your love is shining over me Lord. Help me to be a reflection of your love. Help my sisters and brothers to find peace in you and strength in you and renewal in you.

We get tired sometimes Lord. Help us not to faint but to run on and be rejuvenated in you. In the power and the authority of the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.


  1. How is the G3 in comparison to the other Protein drinks on the market? I am referring to the ones that are suppose to be taken before or after workout. There are some out there that if taken before workout this help with endurance and increase weight loss.

  2. Good question Linda. I haven't tried it or reviewed the nutritional content. I just paused at it because of what it was 'proposing' it could do and it made me think. I wasn't considering it as a supplement, but it may have value. Let me look at the nutritional value/sugar/etc. see if it can be incorporated into Back to Eden's eating...and 'taste' it and I'll let you know:)

    Meanwhile...keep walking on water!
