Weightloss………a Christian journey, a Godly perspective.

Ask for it! August 20, 2011

Filed under: Christian Journey — kayveebee @ 9:01 am

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7

Asking is exactly what I did! I asked God to help me lose weight. I knew that I did not have any will power or self control, especially with food. I knew that I didn’t have the resources to stay on track. I thought Weight Watchers was out of my budget, my husband LOVES fried chicken, and I didn’t have enough time in the day to get to the gym. I started asking God to help me. I was totally honest and told Him my fears. I didn’t think weightloss was something I could actually experience. When ever I tried,  it would last for about a month and then, boom, it was all over.

I noticed through prayer I became stronger, I became determined. I was determined to lose, determined to live a long life, and determined to be a “Hawt” Momma!

God gave me the will to do it. It was almost like a fire had been ignited inside of me. I began to learn that this journey was truly a journey of worship. The Bible teaches us in I Corinthians 6: 19-20, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (NIV)” How was I going to honor God with my body if I kept filling it with junk, not maintaining it, or even showing an appearance that I care about my body. What type of inheritance was I leaving my daughter? How was I teaching her how to take care of her body?

So this is what drives me and what my motivation comes from. I want to live a life pleasing to God in as many ways as I can. I have to honor Him with my body.

 

Peace and Blessings!

    Awesome…there was never any doubt that Krista has a good role model, you’ve just stepped it up a notch for you, to be even better for her, yourself and the mister.

    Kay,
    Love, love your blog!!…and you’re such an inspiration to meeee!!!! You definitely are!! I’ve been having some “come to Jesus” moments when it comes to the physical weight I have on me (which is alot) but I NOW understand that before, I was just relying on myself to handle it…now I’m relying on God for will power, strength, endurance and joy in my new journey that I’m going on. I’ll be joining W W and doing the plan online, I’m feeling different this time around, I really am. I believe it’s because this time around I’m asking my Heavenly Daddy to help me achieve my goals to become fit and healthy. I want to be around for a long time but better yet I want to do it in a healthy and strong body….I want to be a “good looking, young looking” Grandma :D Kay, you honestly are an inspiration to me to put in the hard work and get this weight off of me. God bless you on your weight-loss journey….and btw my Sister, you look amazing!!!!!!!

      Dee, I am so proud of you!!! Keep me posted on your weight loss. The truth is, some days are better than others, but God will get you through. I think I was missing Him in my past attempts too.

      Thank you for the encouragement!
