It’s day 204 of my picture a day weight loss journey and I love a Monday.
It’s the start of a new week and I love the clean slate I’ve got to refocus my responsibilities and goals.
This week I’ve got a lot of work to do for TMU as I develop my Rhetorical Criticism and Persuasion courses, and we’ve also got a few fun events planned with family.
I’m excited for my workout today because it’s a yoga day and, although I really stink at it right now, I’m already seeing progress and I love the challenge it poses for my strength and flexibility.
I’m on track to have a very productive meal day as well, which is an encouragement, and I am praying the Lord would allow me to be faithful in other important areas of my life today, especially concerning relationships.
God has been teaching me so much about Himself through various difficulties and hurts and I thank Him for the clarity He brings that is always so full and timely. He has been kind enough to teach me what it means to count it all joy when I encounter various trials, but not for the sake of patting myself on the back. Rather, it is for the sake of His glory.
The more I learn about Him the more my faith in Him is grown and the more I find I am able to encourage others as they face their own difficulties and trails. I truly don’t know how people manage hard times without the Lord – I know it would be impossible for me to do so.
In God alone is my hope placed and my peace found for He alone is able to grant me these things. May I never choose my way, my feelings, my heart, my needs above His glory – not ever!
Until Next Time My Friends,
