Every little step I take!
Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
We just wanna jump right on the scale after one meal and say 'BAM' down 20lbs or we want to fall off plan and eat what we want and still show 25lbs lighter or we want to be able to run a marathon after just one jogging session. Well, good luck with that because the reality of success in ANYTHING is perserverence. Anybody can 'start' something but it takes true intestinal fortitude to continue. The race - any race - the race for weight loss, prosperity, heaven, wholeness, perfection, no race is given only to the strong or the swift because the real winner is the one that endures to the end...the one that actually FINISHES the race.
Decide today to take another step toward your success, don't give up. Pack your foods (nutritional energy), get in some excercise (physical energy), get in some prayer (spiritual energy). Be whole and WIN!!!
