Often we do not view ourselves correctly. Most importantly we do not see ourselves in a manner that is pleasing to God. It is easy to get discouraged and frustrated.
As I weighed in this week and received the news of "gaining" another pound I had a meltdown moment.
Gaining distracted me from all the progress I made. I allowed ONE POUND to over shadow the facts of my progress.
~Excercised every day!
~Two days in a row, I power-walked just under SEVEN miles. I even jogged "a little" of it! This alone is HUGE for me.
~My clothes are lose.
Refocusing and remembering a very important Bible verse:
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it's work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4
By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,
