Whatever it takes

Wednesday, December 17, 2008



One day I'm back and then I'm not, then I'm back again and then something comes up. Good grief it's never ending! Enough Already!

One of my favorite sayings is, "If you always do what you've always done - then you'll always be what you've always been." So right now - it looks like I'm on the "will always be" track - well, I have seen the future and it does not look like I want it to. So I am changing tracks. This is actually one of the very FEW things that I can control in my life - so how have I let it get out of control???

If I want to live the life that I dream about then I have got to get moving - it won't be easy, but I have been promised in Phil 4:13 - I can do ALL things through Christ that gives me strength. He didn't say some things he said ALL things. Silver is put into the fire and goes through a very intense process to make it beautiful and this is part of my refining process. it will be painful but if I am not refined then I won't be all I am supposed to be. I know the things the Lord has for me and I am holding myself back.

I have a plan and since I have a plan I DO NOT plan to fail! I plan on losing 20 lbs by my birthday!!

No matter what this time - Whatever it takes!

    I'm here to support you all the way! I know that the year 2009 is going to be the year of determination, perseverance, consistency and success! We always say that God is in control of our lives, but you know what??? He has given us the control and He will not by pass our will, so it is basically up to us to take the control of our lives WITH HIS HELP! He will meet us more than half way, but we also have to meet Him half way! That is why the Bible is full of scriptures on obedience! That's what it all comes down to! OBEDIENCE! I'm here with you and for you! Love ya!

    Love and Blessings,

    I love the statement "it will be painful but if I am not refined then I won't be all I am supposed to be. I know the things the Lord has for me and I am holding myself back." You sound like me in the respect that I know I need to 'let go and let God' control my life. It is very difficult (read impossible) for me to relinquish control in anything, let alone my life. I know the pathway is steep and the road is rocky, but that is why He is there. I know you can do this, you are a woman of faith and you are a DONE GIRL!!
