My New Motivation

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

As some of you know, I am a Christian. Last Sunday in church I had a breakthrough revelation! Nothing has ever been enough motivation for me to stick with an eating and exercise plan so far. Not my diabetes, children or grandchildren, appearance, feeling fat, general health or anything else. But Sunday it hit me: God wants me to lose weight! Not just for any of the above reasons, but because HE wants me to be strong and able to move so that I can do the things HE wants me to do! I have felt for a very long time that God had plans for me that I have never felt strong or energetic enough to follow. I want to serve Him, and I am determined to get in shape to do it! (PLEASE don't misunderstand me. I completely believe that God can use us no matter what our physical limitations are. I just feel that for ME, He wants me to be physically strong.)

    I had a revelation sort of like that! You know how when people are around we're on our best behavior (eating a little less, less lazy). But then God showed me even when those people aren't around, He still is, watching me. So I shouldn't care more about what those people see me do, and focus on what I'm showing God. Because to me He is all that matters.

    Yes, He does want you to be physically strong -- both for you to be better able to serve Him in the ways that He leads you, but also for you and better health. He loves you very much!
