I've got a confession to share with you all today. I'm a runner.
Not in the pretty cool "I run marathons" kinda way. I'm a runner in the "if something gets hard, I move away from it … as quickly as possible" kinda way. And let's face it, discipline and maintaining positive change is just so stinkin' hard.
And this is a huge problem for me. As a former health coach and current health advocate, not maintaining my own physical fitness and weight means I can't effectively teach others. I can't share what I've learned with any level of credibility. I can't legitimately lead others to God's truths about how important it is to treat their bodies well, as His creations, until I get my own cravings under control.
As I come to the end of the Proverbs 31 Ministry Made to Crave online bible study, I'm humbled. I don't know exactly what discipline is going to look like for me in the coming weeks and months. I don't know exactly how it's all going to go and how it's all going to work out.
But, what I do know is that I want to figure it out, with God's help.
Because … He is the God who …
"...equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip."
I find so much comfort in these verses! And I hope you do as well :)
