Confession Time

Friday, December 14, 2012

Oh wow! Here it is December 2012 and I have not lost the weight I wanted to lose this year. I wonder if I am alone in this situation?

I know what I need to do to become healthy and to lose the weight but I haven't done it. I identify with Paul when he says he does the things he doesn't want to do and doesn't do the things he wants to do.

My quiet time with the Lord has been intermittent at best. Of course, this is my fault. He is always there waiting for me. How can I neglect to meet with this awesome God? The One who has saved me and offers the power I need to live a victorious life. I have drifted from Him and taken the easier road of sin. The sin of neglecting Him; the sins of gluttony and laziness.

During this wonderful and busy season, I have chosen to read The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer. I read this book more than a decade ago, but realize it is time to read it again and to reestablish regular fellowship with Him.

Blessings to all who read this confession.

    This reminds me of some years in my past, but not this year!! I lost 33# this year so far. Much better than I had planned for.

    You are not alone in not losing the weight that you wished to! I have teeter-tottered all through this year and can't seem to stay on track. It seems to have been a busy year for me. The one thing that we do have on our side is that we are not quitters. Let's just keep on keeping on and we will get it right!

    Forgive yourself and move on. Every day is a new day and an opportunity to get it right.
