I’ve started this new journey in my life. It began with the 21 day fast that a lot of churches do at the beginning of the year. Many years ago, during this time, I cut out meat for a healthier lifestyle. Believe me, that was a hard one to do, being I come from a long line of cattlemen, and because bacon is my friend! Now, I’m on a new journey to cut out sugar and other things that add to the production of sugar in my body. Did I mention that I also come from a long line of incredible cooks, and dessert makers! Is there anything left to eat after you cut all of that out? Well, there is much more than I expected. Part of the battle is to keep my weight under control. So, twenty-two days ago, I started my sugar free life. It was all going well until I stepped on the scale today and had only lost the initial eight pounds. I’ve been working hard too! I’m not going to stop though, I feel healthier and more energetic than I’ve felt in a long time.
Doing things God’s way can lead to the same results. You are doing what you are supposed to be doing, praying, trusting, staying in touch with Him through His Word, loving one another, and loving Him. It feels good, even though your situation is still the same. You don’t just stop when you don’t see miracles happening in your life, sometimes it takes patience. Just like with dieting, things are happening behind the scenes that we know nothing about. The point is, keep going! Don’t stop!
