And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Hello guys and gals.
I hope these blog entries are giving you guys some instight to my thoughts. I have noticed that it doesn't get easier everyday, but it is nice to be able to put some of my thoughts to words.
Here is a breakdown of my day yesterday. As I blogged yesterday I ate a big breakfast due to miss reading the instructions on the oatmeal, but it didnt mess up my calorie count as much as I thought. I went to the gym again and this time I got to use a new piece of equipment. It was awesome, I could get a leg workout and an arm workout during the same time. That was pretty much my day, except I went to work too.
I have been thinking a bunch about how I dont have cravings like other people complain about. I guess I have just commited myself to this lifestyle change. I have been drinking tons of water and have not drank any soft drinks still. I have not even craved them. It must be God that is really helping me along this path. I am not real sure how to explain it but I don't even get hungry. I was reading SongbirdPaula's blog and she was talking about hunger pains vs full pains. I have never even thought about the difference untill I read her blog. I sit here and think about the many times I ate to much and how miserable I was. I have never been miserable from being hungry or from my stomach growling. Granted being hungry brings some discomfort but nothing like over eating does. Thank you SongbirdPaula for the insight and helping me think about it too.
Now on to scripture. I love this scripture and what it tells me. I try to grasp the concept of this. Sometimes I do and sometime I don't. "God causes ALL things to work together for good to those who love God." I will stop there a second. I capitalized ALL because that is the word I wanted to focus on. "All things" not some things, it doesnt matter what it is. I think about how insugnificant to me things are. Things like saying God bless you at the supermarket to the cashier, or smiling at someone passing by. These little things are used for a purpose. The big things like war and death. They are all pieces of Gods big puzzle. If we can remember that even this journey to a healthier lifestyle is also part of it. Every word I type and read is part of God's puzzle. That is how mind blowing it is to me. I can go on and on about it, and never quit.
Lord I thank You for Your presence and for the word You have given me. Lord I ask that You would continue to show me the greatness of You and the plans You have for me. Lord please help me to continue to make You the cornerstone in my life now and always. In Jesus' precious name, Amen
