Imma Back!... And with new inspiration.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

So I took a week away from the computer. To my shame my eating habits went into the crapper, but tomorrow is another day & it is going to be okay. I am just going to start again tomorrow, a new slate. Easier said than done, but I really want to lose the weight. My emotional eating binge on the 21st was the last time I tracked. Today I did horribly, tomorrow WILL be better!

I have great news! My husband got that job after all! I am so excited, he got a new letter today. The only bad part it is he will be gone for 5weeks, I will only be able to see him for a day or two after the first week, then he'll be gone to Texas for 4 weeks. He'll be gone for Thanksgiving. He doesn't start for about 3 weeks.

The way I am choosing to look at things is like this. I gave it all to God, but I chose to take it back. BIG mistake, one I make too often, and He said "Fine, you think you can do it! Deal with this!" and he gave us the denial letter, I spiraled. Now, I am giving it all back to Him, and I am just going to trust Him to guide me on this, sure to be, ROCKY path.

I quit seeking inspiration, a bad mistake for me... I need it, I need to know that I am not alone, and that others have struggled & succeeded. I need to build my confidence & my relationship with God. So often I find a passage from The Bible and feel the need to share it.

I will give you peace and quietness.
-- I Chronicles 16:11

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
--Norman Vincent Peale

Happy is the man who finds wisdom and understanding for the
gain from it is better than gain from silver and profit better than
gold.
-- Proverbs 3:13,14

“The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination.”
--Elbert Hubbard
*In this case I am the sculpture & the artest... chipping away at my own flab*

In time of trouble . . . He shall set me upon a rock.
-- Psalms 27:5

Glory to God, May He Bless You!
