When I am weak, then am I strong (II Corinthians 12:10). I find strength in leaning on what is stronger than I. For me, my faith in Jesus carries me through the challenges of life. Knowing that He will never leave me, nor forsake me is a great comfort. Knowing that He has loved me with an everlasting love, gives me hope.
In the natural, I rushed through life, there being so many things that needed to be done. I went from one activity to another, from one project to the next taking it for granted that my good health would get me through.
Now I've been sidelined for three months, having to rest, having time to think and put things in priority. "Coincidentally" (there are no coincidences with God) at the same time I was sidelined, I began SparkPeople.
All things work together to them that love the Lord (Romans 8:28). This time of recuperation has given me valuable time to glean from the SparkPeople site. During those three months I've lost 21 pounds. That is a wonder for me, since in the past it took great effort to lose three pounds only to gain them back again. This site has given me tools to put me on the path to be physically able to take on life's challenges.
