I’ve been struggling with my weight for the last couple of years and it’s not for the lack trying. I’m not a thin man by any means so 260 lbs is a great weight for me unlike the 367 that I’m at currently. Yesterday I purchased a gym membership and made up my mind to ignore all my medical problems. I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed and drove to the gym. After about a mile and a half of brisk walking on the inclined treadmill I became extremely exhausted. My prayers these last couple of years has consisted of asking God for the physical strength to lose weight. This morning it’s like His Holy Spirit was nestled in my mind encouraging me to turn on some Christian videos, so I did. Engrossed in these videos, feeling the words with all my being had kept me going! I ended up with 2 3/4 s of a mile and a Spirit fully recharged! God is great and amazing. I thank God for not only His answer to my prayers over physical strength but Spiritual growth as well. Thanks for speaking to me Lord through the Bible, video, radio, friends and family. Thank you for always being with me, in me, and around me! In Jesus name amen. Are you thankful for something special today? If so please leave a comment sharing your tid bit of treasure with us so that we can praise with you! Have a wonderfully blessed day and Happy Thanksgiving from Karen and myself!!!!
