I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. – Philippians 3:14 – The Message
I’m trying – I’m trying to eat right, work hard, have fun, and walk as close to God as possible. Some days are better than others! And some days are rough. But I keep trudging along. This picture is my fitbit I hit all my goals. It doesn’t happen everyday but there are days like Thursday where I can nail it. We all want instant success – we want the scale to say low numbers, our cravings to stay away, our muscles to grow, our waists to shrink, and our mirrors and peers to see the difference. We feel different. We want that acknowledgement – hey your hard work is paying off. We want the prize and the treasure now because many of us are working hard. But that’s not how life works. We don’t get a cookie for every right choice, a compliment for every tough workout, and sometimes the scale refuses to budge. Sometimes the scale does move in the direction we want but not enough. So on days where my fitbit celebrates my goals – I should too! Because I’m doing the work and there are days like Friday where I want to throw in the towel because life was overwhelming, because a sugary treat or crunchy chip would have tasted fabulous in the moment, and because I failed to plan. It happens – life happens – so on the days that are rough we can lean in closer to God with a simple prayer of Help , seek a supportive encouraging friend and on the days we hit our goals let’s celebrate! Keep our eyes on the prize – that God is good ALL THE TIME! And every day with consistent good choices we become a step healthier, a bit stronger, and hopefully that much closer to God 🙂 Blessings dear friends – let us find a HealthFULL (Feeling Unbelievable & Loving Life) Balance on our HealthFULL Journey. Thank you His Radio and RBL 2017 to helping more of my some days be better!!!
