Devotions Drown Discouragement

I have always heard that God know just what you need at the right time you need it. Sometimes, we just have to be told several times before it sinks in – or we truly listen! As RBL is coming to a close, my mindset and WILL has to be prepared to take on this rest of this journey on my own. Then this morning in my devotion, I read from Philippians 3:13-14  “Brother and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal…”  Now, while I know this speak of being spiritually focused on persevering in Christ, I also see this with a physical implication as well. After all, we are the TEMPLE. My focus has to be to continue this journey until I am where I need to be. My WILL power has to continue to be what he WANTS me to be. Not going back to my familiar place of eating like I used to, not being active like I used to and treating my body is if it was mine.  I have to forget about that familiar place and keep make my new lifestyle my new familiar. My motto going forward is “I am not yet where I want to be, but I am far from where I used to be”.   Not going back!

I just turned 49 and decided to take charge of my life! This is my year to get healthy and fit. FITBY50 is my motto.. I know I won't be at my ultimate goal by then, but step by step I know I can do it because "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me". I have a daughter with some disabilities and 2 grandsons I have to keep up with - this is my year!!
