Reasons why I'm worth losing this weight and feeling great!
Sunday, October 18, 2009
I was feeling really low tonight. I have so many obstacles, but I'm not going to blog about those. I am an encourager. I love to encourage people to be everything that God has them to be and to not give up. I love to speak words of strength to people, and to let them know when they've blessed me. Way too often, I've let myself feel like dung under others' feet and built others up to be royalty. I really am at a crossroads and I am going to change that. What difference is it going to make to others that my Lord gave His life for me if I hide in the shadows in my "unworthiness" because of my weight...or that I'm simply sore or tired because I'm carrying this excess? He has a plan for me, and I want to do it so that He is proud. I have to take care of myself.
The number one reason I am worth losing this weight is that my life is in Christ. He has called me to tell people about Him. I feel less confident, so I'm going to do something about it. I have 2 beautiful, sweet daughters who are learning about Jesus. I have been changed so much for the better by Christ. I have strength I never knew I had. I love to sing. I want to be used by the Lord to further His Kingdom. I have a great capacity to love. I am faithful and loyal to my friends (except when they try to steer me away from my Lord Jesus and His ways). I am honest. I know I can be beautiful if I work at it. I love to laugh, and do it less often than I like. I am resourceful. I am determined. I work hard when I'm not in pain.
