IT'S A WAR!
Sometime over the last couple of months six pounds snuck up behind me and jumped on. I've worked so hard to keep off the weight I took off after my gall bladder episode and surgery, and I have been successful....The a week in Turlock getting my hearing aids, a week in Tahoe, just having fun and then since my stupid fall, and no YMCA time, I let down my guard, didn't see it coming till it was planted firmly on my hips!
It's a WAR, I tell you. We battle things everyday. Weight, Finances, depression, over-worked, under-paid, health issues, and the list goes on and on.
My dearest gets the opportunity to preach once in a while now that he's retired, but he's always working on a "sermon." Retirement didn't take away the fire in his belly to preach so he studies and prepares. As we've been discussing the daily battles in life, he told me he's working on a new sermon called "WAR" dealing with the daily battles in our lives. Can't wait to hear it.
So, this morning with my Armor on (Eph. 6:10-18) and the Sword of the Lord in my hand, I will, with his help, win today's battle. I needed to get back to my "old" routine of eating, and only enjoy the "treats" on the weekend. It worked for almost a year...I know it will work again. So be warned you "lousy six pounds" you are on your way OUT!!! If I win the battle today, I will be stronger for the battle tomorrow.
What are you battling today in the War called life?
