In geology and earth science, a plateau, also called a height plain or tableland, is an area of highland, usually consisting of relatively flat terrain.
In weight loss it is a area of the scale that also flat lines and is called Frustration. HA
In the photo above you can see the plateau areas surrounding the Grand Canyon. We took this trip for my 50th birthday a few years ago. I cannot believe I actually went out and stood on that cliff, I am so afraid of heights, yet I trusted Mark so much.
I must learn to trust the Lord just as much. Learning to look to Him for my stability in life as well as my grief walk has been challenging but important. I must also learn to trust Him in my health walk as well. I've realized in recent months that I put a large portion of my trust in Mark which allowed me to lessen my trust in my Savior. Don't get me wrong, I trust God with everything I am, yet, it was easy to find security in my Mark.
Now, it really is God and me! In looking at this photo I see that there truly was not much security in our position, not much depth under out feet, and nothing to keep us from falling. At times in this health walk, I have found myself in that same vulnerable place, standing on the precipice of life and death, making choices to hold on tight to God or let go and allow myself to fall. I'm thankful that when we fall or seemingly fail, God is NEVER too far to catch us:)
Though my weight loss has been minimal during this portion of my journey, I have learned lessons that will last a lifetime. So, I keep forging forward, seeking the newness of each day, holding tight to the hand of my Savior and trusting in His grace.
