It is funny how when we are young and are waiting for a special day to arrive, we think it will Never get here. And then as we age, it seems we cannot slow time down to even catch our breath. So it is with my Weight Loss Wednesday posts. How quickly the week passes and how slowly the scale moves.
No, I didn't really throw the scale in the pool last week but I wish I had. I haven't lost a single pound during the past 3 weeks.
15 I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. 16 But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good. 17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. 18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] I want to do what is right, but I can’t. Romans 7:15-18
As I ponder the scripture above, I find myself saying those exact words, "I don't really understand myself". Not in all things of course, but in this area of my life, I struggle with doing what I KNOW will be healthy and beneficial and succumbing to the temptations around my world that are Very unhealthy.
So, I continue on, seeking His guidance and attempting on a daily basis to do what is right, healthy and good for my body, and at the same time trying not to beat myself up when I do err.
