What words are resonating with you this morning?
One morning as I was about to eat breakfast and exercise, 2 words keep echoing in my spirit: ”Honor” and ”Discipline.”
Here is a little known fact about me: I almost joined the Navy.
A Naval officer tried to recruit me when I was in nursing school, saying that I could enter the Navy as a lieutenant if I joined the Navy Nurse Corps (this was back in the 80s).
The recruiter even came to my house to talk with me but when I discovered that I had to learn shoot weapons (guns freaked me out back then), I changed my mind!
Still, I have always admired military personnel for their commitment and dedication to a cause and for the discipline to stay ready to fight for it.
This reminds me of 2 Timothy 2:2-4
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
As a committed follower of Jesus, then you recognize there may be some hard days. However, you rely on the Lord’s strength to get you through, believing that you are fighting for a great cause: To share Jesus with lost people who need salvation.
Otherwise, they will perish!
That is a honorable cause that leading a disciplined life supports.
When Jesus says ”Follow me,” I have learned that it means ”Follow with me.”
That means that Jesus just doesn’t throw you into the deep water of life and say, ”Swim kid!”
So, what words are resonating with you today? Please share in the comments!
Be blessed in health, healing and wholeness,

P.S. When it comes to weight loss, do you often know what you should do but have a hard time doing it?
I struggled with this issue on my own weight loss journey to losing 85 pounds. But I discovered that you can win the Spiritual and mental battle that can make you inconsistent and lose motivation on your weight loss journey.
I developed the Take Back Your Temple program to show you how you can win the battle too.
