No Turning Back

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 were in slavery in Egypt
  • Their lives were bitter with bondage in Egypt
  • They served with rigor in Egypt
  • They groaned and cried in Egypt
  • They feared the Egyptians would murder their sons 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:

  • God is with you wherever you go
  • God is faithful
  • God makes His strength perfect in your weakness
  • God gives you a way out of every temptation
  • God gives you wisdom
  •  God gives you His grace to have dominion over sin
  • God gives you His peace as you keep your mind stayed on Him
  • Jesus gives you His joy – and the joy of the Lord is your strength

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.

Encourage yourself in the Lord and you will reap in due season.

No turning back!

Be blessed with health, healing, and wholeness,

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).”
