Yesterday I was stressing about this week and I am so glad that I actually wrote about it and applied the Word of God to my situation. I believe the Lord wanted me to rest and not stress so that is what I did. This morning I woke up on time, I spent time praying about my schedule. I talked to and prayed with my accountability partner. Not surprisingly the day went well. I was able to get some exercise done in the morning and by the end of the day I had accomplished much. It was the kind of day that I would like to have every day! It was a day of victory! So I think it is a good time to really look at some of my small victories and celebrate them.
- It has been over two months since I drank soda and I now drink upwards of 3-4 liters of water a day.
- It has been 19 days since I have eaten any type of desserts or sweets.
- I have been transparent with my accountability partner for 19 days.
- I released 4 pounds that I don’t plan on getting back
Not bad for someone who is really learning how to transform my temple and not just go on a diet. I am proud of my accomplishments. It’s not about perfection or how quickly I can get results. It’s really learning how to rely on the Lord. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV. I am doing it this time and no matter how slow the progress may be, I will be content because this is a lifetime journey. I am reminded of a quote from Lysa Terkeurst:
That’s what I am doing. I’m on a journey with Jesus to learn the fine art of self-discipline for the purpose of holiness. I will take it one step at a time, one day at a time and never turn around to go back.
Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Thank you for stopping by today!
