Today I found myself rereading some verses in Proverbs 16, that I had reviewed earlier in this wellness journey. Two messages came through loud and clear. Here is what the Lord spoke to me about today ~
Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans. Prov 16:3
If we make our requests known to God and commit our work to him, he will provide the tools to help us get the job done! I can't tell you how often I face work in my life and just don't know how I will get it done, when suddenly a person or situation appears that will help me to accomplish exactly what I am out to do! This was the case with finding Spark People ~ I had made the decision to pursue improved health and wellness and had decided that I needed to be sure to incorporate motivational approaches. As I searched the internet for websites and resources, I came upon the Spark People website - and here I am 6 weeks later having been pretty consistent with healthier behaviors and with 12 pounds of weight loss! Even more proof of God establishing my plans is the resolve that I have been experiencing to carry out the healthy behaviors with my eating and exercising. Praise God! It clearly took an act of God to get this diva moving!
The second verse that jumped out at me and really gave me a laugh was the following ~
Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making. Prov 16:11
If I thought of my body as a bag, I might consider that all the weight in the bag is of his making! If this is true, then it is really up to the Lord to establish the most appropriate weight in this "bag". I truly believe that God is going to assist me to get my weight to the measurement that is of His making! All I have to do is to be obedient ~ I just have to get out of the way!
Happy Weekend, everyone!
