Hello to all of you!
I'm super happy to have you here today!
If you are new here, please read this post, this post or this post to find out a little bit more about me, my family, and my weight loss journey!
I just want all of you to know how grateful I am to all of you for your support and kindness throughout this weight loss journey of mine. Blogging about it has really helped keep me accountable in so many ways, and for that I am absolutely grateful.
I really have something on my heart today, though, that I need to share.
The Lord has been working in my heart recently...a lot. He has revealed quite a bit to me just through some circumstances that He has allowed come into my life. He's teaching me that I need to trust Him more. Not only that, but I need to be more thankful for what He's given me. There's really just so much, I could go on and on...
I just wanted to say that He's dealt with me in a very specific area of my life. And that area is social media. I spend too much time on the internet throughout the day. Not necessarily to the neglect of my family, but it's definitely been to the neglect of my spiritual life. I haven't been spending that quality alone time with God like I should be. My family, by default, has suffered for it.
And so have I.
But, no more.
For awhile, I'm going to take a break from blogging.
As much as I love it, I love God and my family more.
I want to give the Lord preeminence in my life. I want my children to see their mother pray and read her Bible more than she spends time on the computer or phone.
I want to BE that person that I want my children to become.
I'm not going to let Satan have rule over me. I'm not going to feel like a defeated Christian because of this. Why? Because Christ made it possible for me not to. I don't have to live this way.
God says that we are MORE than conquerors through Him that loved us! How encouraging is that?
I can live a victorious Christian life. I can have a quiet, alone time with the Lord. I can live my life according to the Bible. I can be the mother and wife that God wants me to be.
"I CAN do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me"
God is so Good. And I'm so thankful for His mercy and grace.
So with all that said, I will still be checking my e-mail a couple times a week, moderating comments, and posting my "Weight Loss Wednesday" posts because I feel that you all deserve to know how my progress is going. Plus, I still need to be accountable.
But other than that, starting tomorrow...
for at least 1 month.
Scary, right? How can someone possibly LIVE without all that stuff???!!
(sense the sarcasm)
I'll tell you how.
Thank you all, again, for your support. I hope you will still check up on me every Wednesday to see how I'm doing.
God Bless and Take Care!
