Whenever you are working on a goal, it is easy to get discouraged if results take longer than you want.
Discouragement is like weeds in a garden: If you don’t pluck up these thoughts, they can take over!
I recommend using the same question I used to take the option to quit off the table.
I asked myself, “Do you REALLY want to start this over again”?
I decided that I would rather press forward through the difficult times rather than quit and have to start over.
Plus, the enemy has a way of making the past look better than it actually was during times of difficulty.
Remember when the Israelites were on their journey to the Promised Land (see Numbers chapter 13 and 14)?
When things got tough, they grumbled and complained, then talked about returning to Egypt.
However, here is a snapshot of the Israelites’ lives in Egypt:
They knew their lives were awful in Egypt…why would they want to go back there?
They wanted to return to a known hell than travel to a new heaven!
It takes courage to face an unknown future. However, when fear of the unknown comes, focus on what is KNOWN about God:
This is the real work of weight loss – the Spiritual and mental battle. You need that God’s strength to make wise choices daily to secure your health.
So take ‘turning back’ off the table.
Press forward, even if you have to crawl at times.
No turning back!
Be blessed with health, healing, and wholeness,
Creator of the Take Back Your Temple program
P.S. When it comes to weight loss, is the voice in your mind often negative? If you are like most of us, our inner voices are often filled with negativity about what we can’t do and don’t have.
But when you change your words, you can change your world! God’s word says, “life and death is in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).”
