Today I would like to keep my post simple with this one undeniable truth. I am a born again Christian and I’m so very grateful for my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. That he would give his life for mine is awesome, in the truest sense of the word. That he would continue to work in my life after all these years is amazing to me.
When I gave my life to Jesus he not only forgave me of my sins, but he offered me joy and peace no matter what life throws my way. This includes struggles with weight.
Many times in this weight loss journey I have struggled with fears of failure, inadequacy and more, but He always sees me through. Sometimes it’s a sermon at church or a scripture in my daily Bible reading. Other times it’s words of wisdom and encouragement spoken in person or written on a blog.
No matter the venue God has ministered to me so many times in my weight loss journey that it wouldn’t be right to not give Him proper praise. The bondages I’ve had to food could not be broken without his help.
As I write I’m reminded of a favorite scripture of mine. …
“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”. Psalm 37:4
One of my desires is to have control over food in my life. With God’s help I’m blessed to say I’m in the process of seeing that come to pass, and I’m so very, very thankful for that.
My New Ending on InstagramToday my friend and I took time catch up during a morning walk and it was just what I needed. 💞 I’ve been MIA around here and hopefully soon I’ll have more minutes to spare to catch everyone up, but suffice it to say I’m alive and well and today I’m grateful for a rainy morning that cooled things off for our walk. ☺️❤️🌦 . . . #mynewending #morningwalk #friendlychats #keepmovingRemembering...❤️🇺🇸💙 Happy Memorial Day from our home to yours.While my car is being washed I’m reminding myself... 💭 Life. Happens. and today I said, but I’m going to make sure I get my workout checked off the to-do list, and on the “things to not do” list I’m going to check the “eat all the things to avoid life” box. 😉 Maybe I’ll check back later and let you know if I stuck to the latter. #wishmeluck #oneofthosedays #toomuchtodo #momentsofoverwhelm #butiqorkedout #keepmoving #dontquit #nevergiveup #inthisforlife #onedecisionatatime #fitmom #healthierme #healthierchoices #mynewendingI have been itching to get back to a spin class, so I was pleasantly surprised that our YMCA has spin bikes out with the cardio equipment. 😍 🚴🏼♀️ . . . #mynewending #spin #spinclass #keepmoving #30minworkout #fitmom #activemom #Spincycle #activelifestyle #ymca #dontquit #nevergiveupI got SO MUCH done today, but my workout wasn’t one of those things. 😞 It was really bothering me this evening as I enjoyed resting my feet and working on a baby blanket. __________ I decided I could either be okay with it, or modify the workout and do it at home. __________ I chose the latter and now I will go to bed feeling much more content. 😌 📷PC: My 17-year-old son.Looking for a well-made soy candle or wax melt? Check out the sale going on over at Bridgeway Scented Market this week. Link is temporarily in my profile. ❤️🌿 _______________________________ Bridgeway Scented Market has been my favorite for wax melts since I started buying from her at a local shop when I lived in North Carolina. In the 4-5 years I’ve been a customer I’ve seen Tamara continue to put out a fine product. I’ve tried her candles, room sprays and wax melts. Her ability to come up with new scents to match the seasons, all while keeping old favorites around, amazes me. _______________________________ I branched out and ordered 4 newer scents this time and I’m in love! Her descriptions were spot on, and I was pleased to smell what I hoped from each one. Thank you @bridgewayscentedmarket for more great products. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of being grateful to be able to obtain your awesome products even though I now live states away! ❤️
