Despite It All
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I was having a good day today. I got 9 hours of sleep last night. I'm eating healthy. Then, I get a text from my mother telling me that my brother was back in the hospital with a blood clot on his lung this afternoon. I immediately asked for prayer from my friends.
After getting a little discourage, I sat for a moment to reflect. Despite my brother going through this difficulty, I still gave God praise! With God and the prayers of my friends, my brother is definitely in good hands.
I spoke with him after I got off from work & he sounded good. He will have to have surgery in order to dissolve this clot and to help prevent further clots from forming. Now, some may not believe in God, but I have to because despite what I'm or my family is going through, He's still in charge! This strength gave me the momentum to go ahead and workout. I could have made an excuse, but I decided not to despite how I may be feeling emotionally. I did the Firm Sculpt as well as my Daily Mile Challenge, which lifted the stress I was feeling!
So, despite it all, I'm on a mission to give God glory as well as become healthier! I completely trust God with the welfare of my family!
