Getting healthy for the Lord!

Hi there,
My name is Candy and I live in the Twin Cities, MN. My children are grown and out of the house. My grand daughter is my pride and joy and spending time with her is the best part of my day. I want to be able to run and play with her.
I run a group home for adults with DD. I also have a Special Olympics team.
I do volunteer work at my church, love to garden when I have the time.
I struggle with my weight and my goal is to be healthy so I will keep plugging along.

SOmetimes I feel so discouraged on this journey. I feel defeated and like I am a failure. Some days I feel so unworthy knowing I have not made the right choices.
At times like those, Christian music can change my focus and lift my spirit. today I share the lyrics of a song written by Geron Davis. His wife Becky does such a touching rendition.

Mercy Saw Me- Written By Geron Davis

The years had left scars. The scars had left pain. How could he recognize me? I wasn't the same. I knew I should pay and I knew the price. For justice and law demanded my life. Yet, his tender heart heard my desperate cry. And he saw my past through merciful eyes.

Chorus: Beautiful! That's how mercy saw me; Though I was broken and so lost, mercy looked past all my faults. Justice of God saw what I had done, but mercy saw me through the Son; Not what I was, but what I could be, that's how mercy saw me.

Wherever you go, you can't go too far that his eyes of mercy can't see where you are. He loves you too much to leave you alone. You're flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. Yet his heart cries out for your heart today. See yourself through his eyes and then you will say, you'll say:

Bridge: Sin has stolen my dignity and all my self-esteem. But I was made brand new again when mercy looked at me.

Know that when the Lord looks at YOU - in HIS eyes - You are beautiful!

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10

I really struggle with feeling good about myself, trying to enjoy the way I look, even if I am not yet where I want to end up weight wise. This week I share this prayer with you.

Lord, sometimes when I look in the mirror I’m not too happy with what I see. Please let me see me the way you made me, beautiful and perfect just as I am. Help me to hold this image in my mind and heart as I follow my life’s path. Allow others to witness your light shining through me as I walk with confidence, grace and a smile on my face. Amen.

May we all gather strength and confidence and see ourselves as HE sees and loves us.

The road of this weight loss journey is rough. We all have our ups and downs, successes and failures. Just remember when the going gets rough and you want to give up
"I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me."
[PHP 4:13]
