Almost one and a half months into the new year (Thank you Nicki), how is your health/fitness goals going? Mine are going, eh. I believe that is the technical term for “it could be going better”.
At the beginning of all this, way, way back in October, I was gun-ho. Ready to whip this fat into submission. Ready to show myself, my family and the whole world just what Christi is made of. Results? A whole lot of hot air. Somehow between illnesses and holidays, I have fizzled out.
Yes, I have fizzled. I am only marginally closer to my goal than I was in October. I am still searching for myself.
I am ok with this. Really, I am.
Because something occurred to me Sunday as I drove into town. It is something I have talked about before.
I have to give it to the Lord. And I don’t mean just say I am going to, but I have to actually trust Him.
Yes, I will have to put in hard work.
Yes, I will still have to count calories.
Yes, I will still have to exercise.
Just like everything else I have ever tried to control and failed at, once I stopped with myself and put my faith and trust in the Lord, those problems always seem to right themselves. Just as soon as I stop over thinking and trying to control them.
I realize that faith and religion can be controversial. I am not here to force my beliefs on anyone. I am here to find something that works for me.
And, the Lord has NEVER failed me.
