Look UP Even When You Are Down!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Psalm 5:3 My voice shalt THOU hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto THEE, and will look up.

The past several days have been very hard for me. I have been on a plateau. That always drives me nuts. I did tolerate it this time much better. I have been ill. I haven't been sleeping good. Pain has been beyond par. This morning when I started to get out of bed I had a dizzy spell so bad I fell backwards on the bed. It took me thirty minutes of trying to get up on my feet. Hubbie made me use the walker again. I really didn't want to. I was not able to exercise much these past days. None at all the past 3 days. I had been praying for the LORD to help me. I doubt myself and let worry in. I did however eat healthy and stayed accounted for the nutrition I need. I have started cutting back on high cholesterol meats and products. Watching labels very carefully. Eating a lot of veggies! I actual don't feel as weighed down energy wise as when I have meat every meal.

Today, is weigh-in day for me. After I was able to stand up this morning, I had my husband to look at the scale for me, so I wouldn't have to hold on to the walker. I was so shakey, it took a minute for me to steady myself in order for him to get a correct number. I had lost 5.5 pounds this week. Hurray!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy. I was worried, because I hadn't been able to get good exercise in this week. Plus having been on a plateau made me worry. I need to have better faith this week then I had. I kept praying to the LORD and trying to do my best with eating healthy. I know good and well the FATHER is looking after me, always! I know to look up, even when I am down. HE has always been there for me. The LORD wants the best for me! Thank you, LORD!
