So I will be doing my youtube video later (have a very busy day today). But until then I wanted to post this bible verse my friend gave me for encouragement.
24"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
In my earlier posts I talked about how I am trying to be healthy to continue my purpose God has for me. I know everything I do is to glorify Him even my exercising and my weight loss journey. This parable that Jesus talks about truly makes me think about how we need to build a strong foundation in everything we do. My whole life I have been trying to find quick fixes for my weight loss. Though I have been able to lose it but was it healthy?! No it wasn't! I truly believe Weight Watchers is helping me to build my foundation to live a healthier life style. Not only am I making wise choices but I am learning how to live-it whether than diet. With this foundation that I am building on a rock when the wind comes (temptation, loss of self motivation, busyness) my house will be strong enough to with stand it. Keeping my eye on the goal, prayer in my heart, and Jesus on my team! I can and will be healthier even if its slowly but surely.
