My Weight Loss Journey So Far

Philippians 4:13(NLT)

13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength.

 About six months ago I weighed 261 pounds.  I have type two diabetes, and my doctor wanted to put me on insulin.  Shocked and scared, that news became my wake up call.  I asked my doctor for one more cycle to improve.  If I showed no improvement, I would go on the insulin.  Reluctantly she agreed.
I joined a place called:  “The Gym” in Del Rio Texas where I live.  My wife joined also for support, and to lose weight.  I would like to give all glory to God for the transformation I am going through.
In those seven months through the grace of God I have gone from a 44 inch waist to a 38 inch waist.  I no longer wear XXL shirts.  I now fit into an xl.  I am stronger and can run 3 miles without any problems.  My weight has gone from 261 lbs to 233 lbs.  It is my goal to lose  23 more pounds.
I will not lie to you it has not been easy.   I have had to change my diet, and focus more on a healthy lifestyle.  The rewards have been worth it.  God is so good.

Time to Praise God Ya’ll

Psalm 150

The Message (MSG)

150 1-6 Hallelujah!
Praise God in his holy house of worship,
    praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power,
    praise him for his magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
    praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,
    praise him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
    praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!

Start Your Day Off Right

Psalm 146

The Message (MSG)

146 1-2 Hallelujah!
    O my soul, praise God!
All my life long I’ll praise God,
    singing songs to my God as long as I live.

3-9 Don’t put your life in the hands of experts
    who know nothing of life, of salvation life.
Mere humans don’t have what it takes;
    when they die, their projects die with them.
Instead, get help from the God of Jacob,
    put your hope in God and know real blessing!
God made sky and soil,
    sea and all the fish in it.
He always does what he says—
    he defends the wronged,
    he feeds the hungry.
God frees prisoners—
    he gives sight to the blind,
    he lifts up the fallen.
God loves good people, protects strangers,
    takes the side of orphans and widows,
    but makes short work of the wicked.

10 God’s in charge—always.
    Zion’s God is God for good!

God’s Got This

Psalm 37[a]

A psalm of David.

1 Don’t worry about the wicked
    or envy those who do wrong.
2 For like grass, they soon fade away.
    Like spring flowers, they soon wither.

3 Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desires.

5 Commit everything you do to the Lord.
    Trust him, and he will help you.
6 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
    and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.

7 Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
    or fret about their wicked schemes.

8 Stop being angry!
    Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
    it only leads to harm.
9 For the wicked will be destroyed,
    but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.

10 Soon the wicked will disappear.
    Though you look for them, they will be gone.
11 The lowly will possess the land
    and will live in peace and prosperity.
