Daily Devotional for Healthy Life

Friday, March 06, 2015

2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

All my life I have worked to keep myself healthy. I didn't really have a weight problem until the birth of my second child. To admit that I was fat would have been to admit that I needed to change my habits. But, was I ready for that. As it turned out my body just wasn't ready for the changes that I was making in my life. I would park my car the farthest one out in the parking lot and get teased by my co-workers, I would skip my breaks, to keep working, eat healthy foods, even split a sandwich with my closest and dearest friend at lunch time. She lost weight, but I didn't. I would go for walks on my lunch break as well. This scared her more than me. It did forced me to look at for truth. Why was I still fat, and getting heavier by the week. Unless I could change that fact and do something about it, I was looking to be obese for the rest of my life. It took a lot of courage to face the truth, but it seemed like a lot less courage than facing a possible heart attack. With God's help, I knew that could face the truth. You see, it was just wasn't a weight thing for me. It was my body's way of telling that something else was wrong as well. While gaining weight steadily, I also was becoming allergic to a lot of things, my right leg was start to cramp and drag behind me. The faster I would try to walk the worse my leg would hurt and the slower I would get. I was tired all the time. And I was not getting any answers from my PCP Doctor. So I finally went else where for a second opinion. It turned out that I had two tumors. Two very large tumors. One a grapefruit size brain tumor that was killing me. (Literally) And a large uterine tumor that caused my body to stop me from reproducing blood. This tumor was the least of their worries. But an emergency hysterectomy would take place immediately. Then a host of pills one of which was a steroid to help slow the growth of the tumor in my brain. Then to schedule the Brain surgery with a qualified surgeon. Turns out there aren't that many where I live. Go figure... but one thing that I had on my side was God. I made my peace with Him. Went home and prepared my kids, husband and the rest of my family for what may come. Oddly enough, I was good with what ever the out come. I was finally at peace with myself. It didn't matter what was going on with this world as long as God and I were good with each other. How about you, are you good with God?

Today's thought: God makes me fit to fight fat!
