God is a little scary at times but still oh so good!

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Had to work today ( emoticon) but I'm not complaining because I'm grateful that I'm employed and have the opportunity to work overtime. Was sitting at my desk having a conversation with God and telling Him that I really need to get serious about getting more active to get my weight down and take better care of His temple in which He dwells. As if on cue, my friend-girl gives me a call and tells me about a special that's going on at the gym across the street from my job and the options for signing up, with tomorrow being the last day for the special that she got ($30 down, $9.95 month, $25 year for maintenance fee = $14.53 when you average it out).

Satan be on his job as well and the thought came to mind "do you have the $30 for the downpayment?" God let me know that the gym was from Him and for me to do because another friend-girl texted to say she had some money she owed me and wanted to bring it to me. Ain't God good?

My next thought after she texted me was "I hear You Lord and will go to the gym tomorrow after church and get a membership". After conversations with God like that, I can't help but achieve my next weight loss goal, which is 17.6 lbs by my birthday, July 13.

So enjoying this journey that I'm on with God!

    Wonderful that your (spiritual) ears can hear the voice of God. Even more wonderful that you take His lead and obey!

    Hi! I'm Becky. I'm new to the allergy team, I love your blog on this. God has been speaking to me for quite a while and that other idiot too. Too often I find myself taking the other idiot's advice. Definitely hear him screaming now that I reset myself back to stage 1 on here.

    Going to start the c25k program Monday. I would love to start today but this weekend is packed. If tomorrow works better I'll get that going. Got that app on my phone and I'm gonna get started. Sunday or Monday.

    I love that you're a Cancer too. My birthday is July 9. I'll be 41. I am here if you ever need anyone. I'm not on a lot but am going to be if I'm gonna do this journey right finally.

    Great job of getting the "nod" from our Father. I want to know your thoughts on the gym.

    Take care,
    Becky emoticon emoticon
