Pastor Clint's Journey to be Fit

I pastor Andrews Presbyterian PCA in Andrews, SC. Over the last two years I have managed to go from 380 lbs to 295 lbs. My sister informed me about SparkPeople and I came here to find support on my journey to lose the next 120 lbs. At 63 I will not let my age stop me from getting there. Blessings be upon you.

Dedicated now to work on being 1/2 the man I used to be. To acknowledge my failures and short comings, and allow God to make something out of my nothingness.

Dedicated now to work on being 1/2 the man I used to be. To acknowledge my failures and short comings, and allow God to make something out of my nothingness.

I guess Martin Luther's words express it far better than I can.

"It is the nature of God that he makes something out of nothing. Consequently, if someone is not nothing, God can make nothing out of him. Thus God accepts no one except the abandoned, makes no one healthy except the sick, gives no one sight except the blind, brings no one to life except the dead, makes no one pious except sinners, makes no one wise except the foolish, and in short, has mercy upon no one except the wretched, and gives no one grace except those who have not grace."

Thus, I acknowledge it is in our weaknesses and inabilities, and that we present it to God and let Him make something out of Exnilo. He can make something out of nothing.

In Him we can see and accomplish all things.

We can all do this.
We can all allow Him to help us win the battles, big and small.

God Bless you all as we journey together.
Love
Clint

Thanks for adding me as a sparkfriend. I'm new to this so be patient with me. I think you have done an incredible feat for yourself, I'm sure with lots of support. Personally I have an extra 40 pounds on me that accumulated over the past 2 years. I hope I can at least lose half that this year! Keep your toes crossed for me and your hands in prayer when possible.

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. I believe in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves. Let's make this the month we really FLY!

Have you ever heard of the man who fell over the cliff and was holding on for dear life. He cried "Help me" Anyone there! Help Me". A voice was heard "I am here" Turn Loose and I will catch you". The man dangling on the side of the Mountain ask, "who are you. The voice replied, "I am God, Turn loose and I will catch you". The desperate man cried, "Help! is anyone else out there"?
With this I am reminded that too often we look to others for help when they are powerless to help and not to the invisible Almighty God whose power and love knows no limits.

Have a blessed week and let's look upward in faith for our source of strength and help.
