“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!
