Its time to be faithful!
I have been feeling overwhelmed recently with all that is before me. In my limited mind and understanding, it seems like more than I can handle. I am mommy to 2 adorable, rambunctious little boys. I am Mrs. Hall to 18 precious first graders and I wear many other hats as well and am facing some life changes that are looming in my future. There is a lot on my plate! Oh, and I have been given this amazing opportunity to lose weight and be faithful with this other neglected aspect of my life. But how? Oh, did I mention that I am 100 pounds over my goal weight? Hauling that around leaves me VERY tired. How can I be a faithful steward over all the roles that God has called me to if I am not taking care of my body? How can I run the race with endurance when I can barely get up the stairs holding my 18 month old?! Well, here I am.
My pastor (shout out to Pastor Peter Hubbard and North Hills Community Church!) preached a very convicting and motivating sermon today about the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14). He emphasized that we are each given responsibilities according to our ability. It is up to me to be faithful with this opportunity. Thankfully, I am not in this alone! My master has not only laid this responsibility in my lap, but He has promised that He will walk hand in hand with me and give me grace for the moment when I need it. I don’t know how it will all come together, but I know it will because He is able! Here we go!
