Why didn't I ask?

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Well, it's Wookie Wednesday! Two Wookie Wednesday's ago is when I started to feel sick. I'm not back where I was, unfortunately, but I'm back. emoticon

Last Thursday I had a bit of a revelation. I was at bible study, and I'm really not sure what sparked this revelation.. I think I was writting down my prayer requests, and I just suddenly realized, I haven't really asked God for strength to get me through this trail of weight loss. I have such a hard time with self discipline for food intake. I love exercising, I hate counting calories, I hate not eating what I want, when I want. See previous blog for this "biggest struggle". So, why haven't I asked God to give me the strength to say no and resist temptation? I can only assume, it's because I'm human. So, with that said. I will daily pray and ask God for help. Help me crave fruits and veggies!!!! Help me drive past the drive thru! emoticon

So... I'm back! I'm not at the exact point of where I was before I got sick, but I'm back and I will be there within a week, two at the most! IT WILL BE SO!

    What a great idea....we always pray for others but often forget to pray for ourselves. You can do it!

    One of my favorite things that Beth Moore shared that stuck with me is she prays for God to make her want to...want to. I use this when I am procrastinating or struggling in something like exercise or eating or with loving people to make my want to.. want to do what I need to do!

    Love your blog and looking forward to Monday!!

    Amen! I think it shows that you are always thinking of others more than yourself when you are praying, Sarah. I need to do this, too. Tonight I am going to thank God that I had a pretty great day nutrition-wise, and ask Him for many, many more just like it!

    So glad you are back and feeling better. I know what you mean about being human and forgetting to ask God for those things we need help with. Thanks for the reminder emoticon

    Loved this blog!

    We are all human. And, like with many of life's struggles, we tend to assume we can do this on our own. We think we are strong enough. We think we are determined enough. But, sometimes this journey is bigger than us. It is bigger than what we can handle with our own resolve.

    Ask God, and He will guide you. He will hold you and carry you. And, He will always be there for you. I need to follow you in this, and daily ask God to guide me and help me. Thank you... your discovery has prompted my own. YOU are a blessing.

    Ask and it will be done. Amen. You know that is a revelation that I hadn't even realized is that I am asking for others but not for myself. Maybe just didn't want to feel guilty about asking for myself but there should be no guilt in it right? Thanks for posting this blog and opening my mind to asking Him for help when I need it too. Hope you get to feeling yourself soon. I know how you feel, this is going on week two of feeling bad for me too, bronchitis and asthma have wiped my fitness time so low but with each day I am trying a little more to get back to where I was. Take care!
