I have two sons. I am proud of both of them.
But before this year, I had never thought that one of them would go into the military.
Letting go of any of your children of course isn't easy. Especially when a 'child' is pursuing the military.
College would have been iffy. you know, new found freedom and the influence by others who are already into drugs, drinking etc.
But, the possibility of combat....! THAT never even entered by mind!
I am determined that I will not stress out and eat my way back up to the weight I was before.
And I refuse to let myself continue to flounder at the weight I am holding onto.
So, I am letting go of the fear. I will put my trust in the Lord.
He is sovereign in ALL things.
I need to quit playing around and latch onto the enabling that the Lord is quite willing to give to me.
Discipline is needed here. That I seem to be struggling with.
Changing from bad habits to consistent good ones is hard work.
If I can do this, despite the added stresser of a son in the military, then praise God!
Because it will certainly be a miracle. At least to me.
