The Easter Sermon today was titled Seeing is believing . It was all about Doubting Thomas , and how Jesus said to him "“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." Can we apply this to ourselves as well. I believe God who gave his only Son for us wants good things for us but sometimes we cant see it . Take being healthy for instance , Maybe we cant picture ourselves at our healthy weight , eating healthy food , and being strong but you know that's what God wants for us. Its hard to see it and we get discouraged because we cant SEE IT . All we see in the mirror is those extra pounds or our mistakes with eating to much or not exercising . Whatever our beliefs being active , eating good food and being the best we can be at what ever stage we are in life is a natural thing , and you can SEE it in your heart you will have it . The Minister shared a quote by St Augustine
Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe
My Easter wish this Easter is for everyone here regardless of their belief's to see the person that they are meant to become in their minds eye and have faith that one day they will truly see in the physical world , what they had believed all along ! (((((Hugs to all my friends ))))
Now enough of my own sermon !
My Goals are for this week .
1. To eat many more fruits and veggies ! More then the recommended 5 .
2 To Not let my self get hungry to the point of starvation so when I do eat I shovel the quickest thing handy in my mouth !
3. To write in my journal more , Although I have good friends and a wonderful son , somethings just seem to silly or selfish to talk about . and yet I feel I just must say them ! Sometimes the things you should say to a person you just cant say it . A journal is a great way to let it all hang out ! It also is a good way to look back at a particular time in your life to really remember how you felt at the time .
Biggest Loser club at work I am still ahead for now but I did eat this Holiday ! and I am only ahead by .2 of a pound !!! Which really is nothing . I would be happier about being ahead if it was a bigger range I was ahead by ! lol Anyways wish me luck !
