I am Potential!

It's taken a long time to come to this conclusion - 10 almost 11 LONG years.

Something caused me to put on weight and I didn't feel that I deserved to be thin or pretty anymore and I decided to hide from the world.

11 years later and the fact that I have finally realized that I deserve more, because as a child of God I am accepted, it's all coming to light.

Colossians 1:13-14 I have been redeemed and forgiven of all my sins.
Romans 8:1-2 I am free from condemnation.
Romans 8:28 I am assured that God works for my good in all circumstances.

It's funny how the outside reflects what's going on on the inside - even when we don't realize it.

I have tried to lose weight for so many years, the problem is that now it is harder, I'm older and now I have a thyroid problem (YUK). But getting rid of the feelings of inadequacy and just giving my stresses to the Lord - without taking them back emoticon seems to be just what the Great Physician has ordered.

I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.

Mt 11:30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Finally, it's coming off - yippee!

Just deal with the internal and the external seems to follow suit - when you least expect it!

18 lbs down and 22 to go on this first round!!

It's in the bag........... because I am worth it and I AM POTENTIAL!
