I Surrender!

Surrender...v.1. to give up possession of. 2. to abandon or relinquish control. 3. to give oneself up, esp. as a prisioner.

Ok, it's been a really busy week. We have been getting ready to do a container for Guatuamala that has been a long time in the making. It required long hours of packing boxes, palletizing, and moving equipment. We have not been home before 7 p.m. all this week.

My eating has been ok but not great.

No formal exercising this week but many hours of strength training lifting and moving equipment.

I surrender.....not in terms of quitting but in terms of trying to do this without supernatural help. I certainly have tried to be in total control of my eating only to fail miserably. So I'm surrendering the control to God as he is able to do more than I ever dare to ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20).

Surrender is not a one time thing; it is an ongoing process. The Lord is constantly showing me new areas in which I hold back from His control. I have been surrendering this area over to God every morning and some times moment by moment. It's very humbling to know that this area of my life is so far out of control.

The Psalmist said it best, "My Sin is ever before me!"

I appreciate all of you for your encouragement, your victories encourage me, your struggles strengthen me, your words inspire me and seeing "less of you" gives me hope .

Bless you!

Kathy, it seems to me when you are so busy at the museum this always happens to you. I have been watching this and I think this seems to be the pattern. When you are not as busy you seem to have more of a handle on your eating and exercise. Hon, I don't think you can do both!! I could not do both!! So after this week just go on to the next week and not look back!! That is about all that you can do.
(I am off to the doctor this morning!)

I have decided to surrender too. I surrender to the fact that I will do what I can work as hard as I can and if my body refuses to drop the weight, at least I am being a healthier me.

just checking in to see how you are doing.
