Let's embrace not only the moments in life that seem so BIG , but start making our self LOOK for the small things in life that we take for granted. Purposefully look for the little gifts and begin capturing them in your mind, you heart. I am going to join my friend over at Holy Experience and begin looking for 1000 gifts this year. January is almost over, but I am trusting that God will lead me to see just that. Won't you join me? These ladies join over on Mondays to share their "gifts" at Holy Experience (linked above). I am committing my Mondays to sharing with you the gifts I found and embraced the week before. I am committing each and every day to look for and embrace what gifts God has given me.
I have spent a week away from only pouring over WD or Rise above, and let me tell you I feel so much peace. Yes, I am still following the principles I learned BUT I am not putting more focus on those books (or the founder) then God anymore. And, I can say I am still on track because I am down a tad bit more. My husband really doesn't want me to loose anymore, but I can honestly say losing hasn't been my focus. Staying consistent during the weekend, when times get tough, and when I get tired has been the focus. I give God the glory now, because I know He will lead me to my perfect body weight/size, and I have the spirit of contentment where I am now. I am not desperate anymore to "Fix" the behavior. Now, I am just desperate for Him.
I am off to finish getting dressed for church, and make sure the kids are ready as well. May your Sunday be blessed.
Serving Him with Gratitude,
