However, on Sunday the Lord showed me Philippians 3:13-14 - which talks about forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what is ahead! So that's exactly what I'm doing today!
In the Ladies Class at our church on Sunday we studied
"If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
I want to follow Christ! In both the big things (salvation) and the little things (eating healthy & exercising)! I love the part of the verse that says to take up your cross daily. However, this morning I realized for me - I need to start with "moments" instead of "daily". My "real life" small cross is being obedient by taking care of my body... and I have to to do daily - but before that, I have to do tackle it moment by moment.
I know that if I concentrate on finding success moment by moment (eating the right kind of breakfast, drinking my water, and exercising according to the schedule) - eventually I will find success in the daily (lunch and dinner) and then before long - I will find success in the end game goal (wearing those jeans that I just love!).
(these are my actual weights!)
So today, I'm starting (again) Body For Life! Today is Day 1 of an 84 Day program. As my husband would say, "Let's Go Get It!"
How do you find victory taking up your cross - "moment-by-moment"?
