My New Years Resolution has "gone to crap". (Pardon my French)
I confess that I prepped my self.
Bought into the dream.
Took terrible "before" pictures.
Started a fitness journal. Like paper and pencil.
Used a measuring tape to record the circumference of my arm. Ugh...
And it failed. I have spent a long time repeating the same old record... You Failed. Again.
I promise this post isn't a pity party and it will get brighter, just hang with me.
I figured out what I have been doing wrong my whole life. And I figured it out crying over the foot of my bed at my unsuspecting husband after stepping on the scale.
(Who was a champ by the way!)
I had put my focus on fixing the exterior without first fixing the interior. And that was getting me no where.
My Heavenly Father was asking me to let Him help. But I was shutting him out.
I was letting food have dominion over me. And I don't like that.
I was giving my self worth over to Satan. And I really don't like that.
It took my husband grabbing my face and speaking God's truth over me to realize that I had it all wrong.
So I have decided to turn this over to the One who created every inch of my being. He makes no mistakes FYI.
I have posted verses on my fridge, on my pantry, and in my mind.
I have made up my own challenge.
- 10 minutes in the Word and asking Jesus for power to overcome temptation.
- 20 minutes of activity
- Stop eating when I am satisfied
- Pray scripture to receive deliverance from food.
Who would like to take this challenge with me? To turn our narrow view of ourselves into the view Jesus has from Heaven.
BTW He is crazy about you! He made you! And thinks that those yoga pants, mom jeans, and messy bun look gorgeous on you. He can use you no matter your size.
Love and Laughter,
