Never Give Up!

2 Corinthians 4:16 -“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.”

If your a believer in Christ, never lose hope. You are so close!!

Seek Him!

John 3:18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.”

One day there will be judgement on this world; are you sure you want to face that alone? Seek Him!

Peace

Philippians 4:7 -“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Once you truly give your heart to Him, you will finally find the peace you so desire. 🙏❤️

Why Not Me?

DO YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF the above question? Why not me? The subject matter relating to that question could be on a range of subjects; Career, Family, Faith, but for me its for something different and maybe you can relate; my weight…

I haven’t always been heavy; when I was a kid I was relatively normal when it came to my weight. In fact, once I got through those awkward teenage years, I looked pretty good. That really was a miracle though because my Mother nor my Father cooked so pretty much my whole childhood was Burger King, McDonalds, or Wendy’s for dinner. The only time I got a somewhat healthy dinner was when I would visit my Grandparents house. Even then though it wasn’t really healthy, just not a bunch of processed junk.

So fast forward to today; as I sit here I weigh a pathetic 385 pounds. I just stopped doing the Keto thing because all it was doing was making me sick and I wasn’t losing anything anyway. One thing I have definitely noticed is that at the ripe old age of 47, losing weight has become much more difficult. There was a time where I could just cut out the crap foods and the weight would fall off; not so much any more.

People tell me all the time; “You just have to want it bad enough!” Well let me tell you, I do. I don’t enjoy looking like a walking watermelon and having every day be in pain all over. I try to hide the pain I’m in but even there I am starting to fail.

I watch these videos where people have lost tremendous amounts of weight, and for a brief moment I will get motivated, then I fall back again. So I ask myself this morning; why not me? Why is it that I always lose the motivation to keep going? Is it because of my love of the taste of food? Is it something else? I don’t know, but the frustration level has reached new heights. I am almost at the point of just saying; “Just forget it David, you’ll always be fat and probably die of a heart attack”. Trust me though, that is NOT what I want…

Friends, I told you there would be days where what I write would not be very motivational; today is one of those days. I just needed to write my feelings out as maybe that will help. Something has to give, that is all I know. For this I place it all in God’s hands and whatever happens will happen.

Thanks for reading everyone,

David

Happy Friday!

Proverbs 3:7 -“Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil.”

Don’t ever think you have it all figured out. Be reachable and always turn to God for the answers. Happy Friday everyone!

God’s Word

2 Timothy 3:16-17 -“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.”

Happy Wednesday everyone!
