No Loss, but Gain

Sunday, July 01, 2012

You know something, I am one of those people they call "know it all's". Yes I can admit that. If I don't have the answer I will research for hours until found. Well today, I realized that I have been losing more than gaining. When I say losing, i mean friends, co-workers, family and so on.

In church, I broke down because even if I am a know it all, I never commit myself to anything. So truly I am not a "know it all". I don't know enough to trust and believe in the Bible, which I pickup several times a week and read daily. Therefore why should I expect God to bless me with anything. I think about my weight struggles. Yes, I feel like I am giving 99% but in the back of my mind, I am telling myself I am going to fail, because its too hot outside to drive to the gym, i didn't plan the right meal, I'm too tired to workout, if I eat a cookie it will be okay because I deserve one after working out....Its clear... I'm not committed.

I needed to hear this today and everyday to remind me the meaning of true commitment.

Ask yourself are you really committed? emoticon

    you have to be honest with yourself, its honesty that helps us strive forward. God loves you the way you are Grace. He is not expecting perfection from you but what he wants is that you stretch your hand out to him for help. He'll give you the help you need.

    Way to be honest with yourself! I understand where you are coming from--often I also am not really committed to give myself an excuse if I don't succeed so I don't have to admit failure. But you are here, and you now have a really valuable insight into your choices, and so you can work on setting your goals and learning to fully commit to the next step. You can do it!

    I admire your honesty. Sometimes I think my denials are one of the things that brought me to my obesity. I hope that you will give yourself credit for that at least.

  Just for today. You really can only do this one day at a time.
God isn't beating you up so you shouldn't be either.
You should expect him to bless you because he loves you. Not because you are a student of the bible.
Just for today, I can do the things I know work.
Just for today, I will pray for more faith.
Just for today......

    I accept that I'm going to fail sometimes, make excuses, not be perfect. I'm committed to keep trying, go on every day, and stick with this through good and bad times. emoticon
