I've been ready to live for a while now, but I guess I never knew how to get started. I thought I was leading the way, then one day, I just said, "OK God, You can take the lead now. I will follow."
What did He do? The ultimate climb to the top of the corporate ladder ended suddenly. "Teach!" He said. Who me? Teach others to go where you have gone and get through what you have gotten through. So I'm doing it. "Lead!" He said, so I am leading.
This battle is not mine either. This is the first time I have actually said to myself that I know God does not want me to live this unhealthy lifestyle. This time I will let Him show me. He is bringing me into opportunities I could have never imagined, and instant gratification, kind words from my team members, virtual gifts, thank you notes...I'm going to Spark this year, because He told me to. Never did I want to become a Spark Team Leader. I wanted others to motivate me. But that's what I do. That's what I have been called to do. Motivating and teaching others to do what is right, is what I love to do.
I'm listening. I'm waiting, I am doing what He is calling me to do. Even this blog, it's the first one of the year, and it's because He told me to write it. It does not have much to do with my weight loss journey, but it is my acknowledgement for the year, that I know God wants this for me, and He wants it for you too. He wants me to live a Physically Healthy and Trim lifestyle. He's calling me and I am listening. If you are reading this right now, He is calling you too. Are you listening? You should. Until God steps in and goes to work, until it is God's purpose for your life, you will keep trying and failing. Let Him know that you are ready to listen.
