Health Update #4

In just barely three months I have lost over 30 pounds. Hard work is paying off, but its just the beginning. So far I've only been to the gym twice. I'm just getting started :) 

I'm excited to see what will take place. This would not be possible without God or any of my family and friends. Of course, I had to say yes to a change and submit to it. 

Thank you Jesus!

Hold Nothing Back

The past couple of weeks have been a test of my faith and trust in God. Today, however, something clicked. I am a child of God. If you are saved, if you are born again, then you, my friend, are also a child of God. Nothing can hold you back any longer. Every thought of insecurity, doubt, unbelief, fear, etc... it has no right to be where you are. God is not about those things; He is not about confusion. God is about grace, mercy, forgiveness. He is about love, trust, and freedom. 

I say this because twice now (in the same week) I have become overwhelmed with thoughts that don't belong in my mind all because of fear. I can not let fear win. As a child of God, I do not have to hold back. God does not only give me strength and courage, He is my strength and courage. So next time those thoughts come into my mind, I just tell them to go back to the pit of hell where they came from and allow the Holy Spirit to be my peace of mind.
