Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind in earth shall also be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
The Keys to Heaven are master keys. You hold the master keys to EVERYTHING. Not just weight loss. If you are a child of God and a believer in Christ, you hold the master key to EVERYTHING. Problem is, we don't always know how the keys work or we may not know we even have the keys. That's why we have to read, pray, study in God's Word and help one another when a 'key' has been revealed to us.
If I gave you the key to my Jaguar (in Jesus name!!) but didn't tell you where I parked it or you didn't know how to drive, it wouldn't do you much good. Or worse still, if you knew where it was, how to drive it but you chose to continue to drive your old beat up '88 Malibu Classic (my first car) then it broke down and you couldn't get where you were trying to go...whose fault would that be?
You have the 'keys' to your weight loss BUT if you don't implement them they WON'T WORK. Period. You have to stay committed and continue to unlock the door to your weight loss, health and energy by using the keys that have been provided to you. If you get stuck or need some direction or encouragement - call me. I'm in this with you!
OK - on to the CONGRATULATIONS for the day!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Priscilla W. down 6.8 lbs!! You go girl! I'm proud of you! Those last 7lbs are gonna just FALL off. I'm praying with you - get that water in!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Ori-Lou (Angel) down 4.2 lbs in one week! And she wasn't even STRICT on the plan. Watch and see what happens when you get real serious! You go girl!!
Don't forget to pray. Prayer is the real 'key'. With Christ ALL things are possible. Ask Him to go before you. TELL Him where your struggles lie. GIVE Him praise in all things. Truly, I go to God for each of you daily - but He wants you to come to Him for YOURSELF!!
Keep walking on water!!
