For those of you struggling, the Bible says that those who plow are to plow in hope.
"Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its grapes? Who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk? Do I say this merely from a human point of view? Doesn't the Law say the same thing? For it is written in the Law of Moses: "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain." Is it about oxen that God is concerned? Surely he says this for us, doesn't he? Yes, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they ought to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest." 1 Corinthians 9:7-11
Keep plowing. Keep on trucking. Keep on keeping on. Don't quit! Plow on, and plow in hope! Never, never, never give up! WORK like it all depends on us; PRAY like it all depends on Him.
I wanted to lose 1-2 lbs a week this year beginning in Feb, and including today there are now only ten days left in the month of March. 1-2lbs a week, would be 8.5 lbs to 17 lbs by March 31st.
Since I have only lost 6 it's imperative for me to get back on track, before I fritter away this year, as well.
So for these next 10 days I'm putting health first (after the Lord, of course; everything comes after the Lord). Yes I still have to job hunt; but outside of doing that, and before and after that, exercise and water and veggies and sleep are first priority.
