So about a month ago, I decided that I was going to start taking better care of myself. With that decision, I decided to try to eat healthier and to start working out more. God has blessed me with the amazing opportunity to have great health and I need to treat my body better.
Well…at the time I was the kind of person that after every workout, I’d go to the mirror and see if you can see any changes yet. Lol after ev👏🏾er👏🏾y workout! The Lord one day reminded me that change takes time! It took months and years to get out of shape, so I can’t expect it to all go away overnight. So…I decided to stop getting on the scale and to stop looking for changes right away.
Then, I hit day 30 of working out…I just KNEW my body would have completely transformed. Y’all…..I compared my before and after pics….😒😒😒. BARELY ANY DIFFERENCE! Lol I was hot!!!! I was ready to quit and say forget all this working out mess.
Then, I was reminded that…even small progress is progress and to not be discouraged. Also…God has told me on more than one occasion, that this takes work. It takes consistency. It takes focus. I may not see the results I want yet, but if I’m consistent, I will get there! I was listening to a sermon and the preacher said “We want everything in thanksgiving dinner form in ramen noodle timing “, which is impossible! Lol GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME!
Galatians 6:9 says “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Soooooooo…you have to keep pushing, stay consistent working towards the goals you set. It may take a lot of blood, sweat and tears to reach where you want to go. People may stop supporting you. You’re gonna want to quit…it happens. We all get tired. But don’t! Imagine where you’ll be months or years from now if you stay consistent . You may even slip up or take a break…but get back up. It’s bible that if you don’t quit doing good, you will reap a harvest! And I believe that!! And I believe you can do it. I’m with you! Whether you’re thinking about starting your own business, going back to school, working out, whatever it is….get started and work hard towards what you want. Soon you’ll be able to look back and be glad you started and stuck with it!! 🗣 GET TO WORK! 😊
P.S. (idk if I can put PS since this isn’t a letter but you get the point)…I thought I was done writing. Then, the Lord reminded me how he told me to be consistent even with my blog! When Jesus was telling the story of the sower he said in Matthew 25:23, “The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’” So, often we want more and more, but we we’re not consistent with the little we have now. How can we handle more if we can’t handle the little? So being consistent, also shows that you’re faithful and that God can trust you with more. Ok. I’m done this time for real. Until next time! Lol
