Losing Weight God’s
If you read Monday’s
blog entry, you know that I had all but given up on the
idea of taking weight off and getting fit when the Lord spoke
to me. Basically He said it was not time to give up. But it
was time to give the problem to Him.
There is one thing I know about the Lord and that is He never
asks me to do anything without providing what I need to do it.
So I'm feeling excited about a weight-loss adventure with Him
With new hope, I headed off to the YMCA on Monday to do my
workout. On my way there, I was stopped by a friend who asked
if she could go to church with me that evening. Our church has
a Monday night prayer meeting. I don’t usually attend,
but I had a feeling that this was something the Lord was leading
me to do. So instead of working out at the YMCA, I went home,
put on some worship music, and jumped on the treadmill.
I had a great time doing the workout and I think it was the
beginning of the Lord making some adjustments to my weight loss
Last night I did the same thing and as long as I focused on
the Lord as the music played, the time flew by. His way was
definitely more fun than my way.
I’m not sure what other adjustments He'll be making
in my weight loss plan. But am convinced that He wants to be
intimately involved in my weight loss efforts and without Him,
I can never be successful.
Now, the number one thing on my weight loss “to do”
list is spending time seeking Him.
I hope your week is going well. Sign on to the message
board or e-mail
me to share your thoughts.
God bless you,
