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 Instagram🍂Happy First Day of Fall!🍂 We got some nice cooler weather this evening here in Southern Texas today and I’m loving in! 🧡 . . PC: Random Autumn word art picture from Google search.Great sign, @hobbylobby !! 😂👌🏻🤣 I think I’d add this to my Christmas wish list for a little kitchen collage wall. 😍Brisket is in the oven, dessert is finished and I’m enjoying an hour with some of my favorite things — coffee, crafting and autumn colors. 🧡 #septembersaturdays #babyblankets #myhappyplace #coffeelover #mynewending #crafting #blanketstitch #autumn #aquiethour #calmbeforethestorm #partytonight #loveeveryminuteI love baking and recently I enjoy trying recipes for healthier versions of things. These look and smell delicious, but they were a little dry and definitely protein’ish. I think it will be a good substitute if I do a couple things different. . . . My daughter and I wonder if they would’ve tasted better if I would’ve used the protein powder suggested in the recipe. I used what I had on hand (Whey Protein from Costco). 😏 And I wonder if I should’ve taken them out a little sooner, so they would be more moist. . . . We’ll see... I may try them again or I may stick to good old fashioned banana bread and have a protein shake on the side to get more protein in. 😉😋 A link to this recipe is in my bio temporarily for anyone interested in trying them. 🍌 Let me know if you do!18 years ago today I was giving birth to him... Happy Birthday to this not-so-baby of the family! 😍 . . I enjoyed the few minutes we were running side by side on the treadmills this morning. 👟😅He has pushed through and accomplished so much in his health these recent years and he inspires me to keep going. . . Love you, son! Your dad and I pray many more healthy happy years ahead for you.❤️🙏🏻🇺🇸 PC: @ash.weigh
