An Unfortunate “I” Opener

So this week has been a real eye opener for me. On Wednesday my wife had to go to the hospital for a kidney infection and when they done bloodwork on her they discovered she has diabetes. Her sugar was over 300 and she hadn’t even ate anything that day. She too has always struggled with her weight since she became an adult and has attempted many times to loose. It’s no coincidence that I’m back doing rbl this year and learning and applying good eating habits and now my Wife is following my lead. As soon as this kidney infection passes she is going to come with my to the Y sometimes.

Unfortunately this year has been a rocky start for my Wife. A little over a month ago we experienced the tragedy of losing our unborn son. It’s way too easy to get caught up in the hurts and the emotions and turn to food for comfort, even in the most tragic situations. No matter who you are, life will always throw you curveballs. I’m learning to lean on my Saviour for strength. I must alow the Holy Spirit to keep me encouraged to look past the temporary hurt, and keep focused on how much better life will be being healthy.

Romans 8:12-14The Message (MSG)

12-14 So don’t you see that we don’t owe this old do-it-yourself life one red cent. There’s nothing in it for us, nothing at all. The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. God’s Spirit beckons. There are things to do and places to go!

One thought on “An Unfortunate “I” Opener”

  1. I liked the scripture you chose. We think we can’t let go of who we were but God asks is often in scripture for change to occur we must let go of pieces of us and ways that were familiar. I am sorry for the tragedies your family has experienced. I also cannot imagine the scare all of you experienced. Thank you for your willingness to share.
