Self control and Endurance...

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

I was reading II Peter 1:5-7 today and as I wrote some notes on the process of maturity for my spiritual life I reflected on how this parallels with my journey of weight loss...
First I must believe and have faith in God, the scripture then instructs me to add to that virtue or GOOD MORAL LIVING and to that add KNOWLEDGE. To that knowledge I must add endurance and self control...

Oh how this mirrors what is necessary to shed the excess pounds that have plagued me all these years! We know what to do in order to be healthy, we then have to persist in self control in order to get it done.

Thank you Lord for your Word, write these Words of Life on my heart that they may light my path and continue to lead me in the way everlasting!
