Like many of you, I have battled weight issues for years. Losing weight and gaining weight again and again is aggravating, but it has been the norm for me throughout my adult life.
It was later that evening that I decided to do something about it. A few days later (March 27th) I began the process once again of losing weight. Since then I have been walking 3+ miles per day, making better food choices, and looking for motivation anywhere I can get it.
As strange as it might sound to some, my greatest motivation has been the Gospel–I want to continue proclaiming it with gusto and effectiveness for as long as I can. Sharing the Good News of Jesus’s entrance into our world, his death for our sins, and his resurrection remains my mission and it is one I hope to continue being a part of for many years to come.
While I know the road to better health can be long and full of potholes (most of them full of donuts), I know I don’t walk it alone because the one who saved me and sanctifies me is sustaining me step by step.
So far I have lost 25 pounds and hope to lose about 75 more. Impossible? Not at all. The Bible tells me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. It tells you the same thing.
Whatever it is you are trying to do–if it is something good and Christ exalting–take heart. The Savior is with you. Keep holding his hand.
What seemingly impossible goal do you have?
How can I pray for you in regard to it?
