Today is Labor Day and I am certainly thankful that the Lord does not take this day off because I still need a lot of work done in my life.. "I am still under construction, so that means the Lord is working in me, for me and through me!"
I have discovered as I have been on this journey that without working on my change of eating and working on exercise that there are absolutely no positive changes.. So without labor, nothing does prosper.. I do not lose weight, in fact sometimes I gain, I do not lose inches, my clothes do not fit right, I feel miserable, I am not happy with myself, I am not happy period..however with some effort and labor on my part means that I have to plan what I am going to eat, I have to plan when I am going to exercise, I even have to plan when I am going to spend time online because I have to also do things for my home and my family so labor and doing this is essential for me to be successful..
I am so thankful that the Lord has helped me to see some of the things I need to do and I am working in each area to get them done on a daily basis.. I have not reached perfection, however I am working on them, and for that I am thankful...
I hope this helps all of you to understand that although this is not an easy journey , you can do it with some labor from yourself and help from the Lord if you ask Him...
May you be blessed on this Labor day..
Happy Labor Day--and may the Labor Day of the Lord in this life never end!
Hugs and Prayers..

"Heavenly Workman, may You never stop working on me. It's a lifelong process, I know--and sometimes I squirm and get in Your way! Change me, Lord, nevertheless--make me what You want me to be. Thank You for working for me in ways I cannot even see nor know. And please, God, work through me, that my life may be a witness to Your saving, keeping--and working power, In Jesus' Name, Amen.
