Being patient!

Friday, March 23, 2012

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
- James 1:12

Being patient. One thing I am working on. Knowing that my weight is not going to come all on tomorrow. Sticking with my plan and working hard is going to get me there. I am not going to try the vitamin and instant weight loss pills my friends are pushing. I am going to let God work in me through this journey. There have been trials but I have past and I am down a size of clothes and can see the difference in the scale. I am going to work harder and get into those ONEderfuls soon!
The Lord has promised me that I will receive the crown of life! So I will be patient and keep on working towards my goal!
Thanks be to God!

    So, so true. Isn't it wonderful that God gives us a testimony because of our trials. Weight loss and a healthy life style may be slow work but we are able to give Jesus Christ honor through it so bring it on. It is great to know we have others to lift us up in prayer and to share our journey. Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses let us lay aside the weight that does so easily beset us.
    Praying for you,

    Amen!!! When people ask me the secret to my weight lose, I am proud to say 'Prayer' first and foremost. God has been by my side every step of the way. Even now while I'm unable to do my normal activities I am still maintaining my weight through God help. He is my strength and power everyday! I will be praying for your journey of strength and hope to better your temple for God's glory!
