As you can see I am trying to begin again with a healthy lifestyle. I don’t like it, don’t want to do it, struggle with it and ask for your prayers for an attitude change.
Ephesians 1:18-21 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you,
the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and
His incomparably great power (what kind of power?)
for us who believe. (for who? Me a believer)
That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead (the power in me is the same as what?!)
Ok so if I believe Scripture, and I do, then I have to believe that as a child of God He has given me a hope and that hope is that I have His great power and that power is the same as the mighty strength He used to raise Christ from the dead and much more. The great power in me being the Holy Spirit.
Based on this information maybe, just maybe I can lose some weight! Don’t you think? Any motivation is appreciated.
