I'm a list person. Feels good to accomplish a task and cross it off the list. Taking care of my family and putting everyone else first. Always finding the time to do for other and working on myself gets pushed to the bottom of the list. Now I'm finally realizing it is not selfish of me to work on me. When I go down everything stops. Prioritizing that my spiritual, mental along with physical health is important and I can function in excellence with all three in balance. Time to cross off an important goal on the TO DO list, drop the weight and maintain. Sometimes we as christians tend to get the spiritual side of God's plans done, but we often forget that we are created in His image and he made us different by design. We sometimes forget the physical side and get so busy that we physically ne glectour temple. It is my time to consistently start Tending the Temple (My body). The bible says that bodily exercise profits little and I finding out that I need that little, also. This has been and still in a journey and I am learning to enjoy it. Being unhealthy is a form of bondage- when it it something that I can change. Like Moses, when he stood at the Red Sea, thought he and the children of Israel were helpless. Moses had the rod in his hands and was instructed to stretch it out. God is reminded me that He has equipped me with the tools I need for this weight loss journey and it is indeed in my hands. Though Christ I can do all things and I am more than a conquerer. My actions just have to match up with what He says I already am, and endure til the end. It's my season.
