This week has been a good one and I know the rest of the week will be as well. God is with me, as He always has been, however I have finally faced my stronghold and am working with Him to defeat it. He promises me I can, so I will!
I hope that everyone who is struggling with motivation (as I was for quite some time) will realize that you must DO it even if you don't FEEL like it. Eat right, get some exercise and track. Be accountable to yourself first and foremost.
I believe it was Joyce Meyer who said that if you will do what you know is right, even if you don't FEEL like it, after a period of time, your FEELINGS will catch up with your DOING. She was talking about forgiving someone even if you didn't think they deserved it, because it was God's will. It also will keep your heart soft towards God so that you can hear His voice.
I just realized that this principle can be applied towards any area of our lives that we are in disobedience to God about, and believe me, I have been disobedient towards God about my eating habits. I've eaten food in secret, so that my family doesn't know about it, and I've lied about what I have eaten. No more. I will be honest 100% with myself, God, and if they ask, with my family as well about every food choice that I make.
I will do this, even if I screw up (which I will because I'm human). But I will honestly post, to the best of my ability, what I ate so that I can be accountable to myself and see what situations and/or foods lead me to being disobedient.
Sorry for the rant...it just keeps coming out! lol
Hope everyone has a great week and keeps their eyes on Him!
