The Scenario: Time to get my life right! Wellness Goal- I want to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks! Week 1-3 are great! You exercise everyday, make smarter food choices and the pounds drop off quick!! Week 4, you don't lose weight but you're not worried...still going strong. Week 5, you gain a pound...what the crap!!
See it's the Week 5s that gets us side-tracked. We start off strong and motivated but then get into the middle of the challenge, the tough place, and we loose our certainty. Uncertainty is dangerous. Without certainty it's easy to lose focus, to get tired and quit. In Philippians, Paul makes a declaration "I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finished" (Philippians 1:6). What work has God began in you? Is it to achieve and maintain a healthy weight so that you have the energy and stamina to voluntarily serve the community? Is it to get out of debt so that you can be a financial blessing to others in need? Whatever work God has begun, be certain (definition: established without a doubt) that He will continue His work until it is finished. Use that certainty as motivation to keep fighting until the goal is accomplished!
Make a declaration today: I am CERTAIN that God, who began the good work within me, will continue His work until it is finished!!
Love & Blessings Always,
