God gives songs in the night (Job 35:10). Whatever may be the circumstances of your night, your disappointment, your trial, we can turn to God who gives songs in the night. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" (Psalm 30:5). As long as we continue to look up to Him, we will find the strength to overcome. "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2).
Almost six months have passed, since I started SP. My progress is much more than I thought was possible--25 pounds lost. That was my weight thirty years ago! I've gotten so many compliments. Things were going well, but now I've reached a learning plateau where things seem to be at a standstill, motivation is waning, it is an effort to log-in meals.
If I hold on, I know my change will come. Lord, don't move that mountain; just give me the grace to climb it!
