I never though I would be at a point in my life where I looked in the mirror and thought "Dang, I look good." But that happened to my Saturday morning. I know I had a mini-revelation a couple of weeks ago at Zumba, but this was different. I was up early getting ready for a Thirty-One meeting and lunch with Jessica. I decided I wanted to look "cute" and did my makeup. I went in the bathroom to start doing my hair and as I was standing there, I just looked at myself....and that exactly thought popped in my head - Dang, I look good! I have never done that! It really hit me that I have come a LONG way in the past 7 months. And, after my struggles over the past month, I needed this moment! This was a renewal in my self-confidence and the extra boost that I can still do this and I AM making progress.

All this being said, Friday was my day to measure and I think what initiated the renewal. I was really nervous about measure Friday because of all the damage I thought I'd done lately. Well, I sucked it up and did it. And when I first started to compare last month to this month, I freaked because my waist and hips showed a gain...of like 3-4 inches! I knew that couldn't be even after all I did. So I remeasured and I was pleased. It turned out to be 0! And while I didn't lose any in my waist and hips, I did manage to still lose 3.75 inches from my arms, shoulders, and thighs!! That was HUGE for me! :) I was so excited. Again, such a renewal in my confidence and showed me that I am making progress.

I AM A CHRISTIAN. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, & mind. God has really blessed me more than I could ever imagine, but the truth is that Satan HATES me!! I face struggles & temptation every single day of my life; but no matter what happens, I still strive to do the will of God. Because I put my faith & trust in God, He has provided relief for me & my family time & time again! God never fails to comfort & remind me of His promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). There have been countless times that I did not deserve God’s grace & should not have been granted mercy. But He has granted me mercy & forgiveness, as well as goodness & grace -- all for the purpose of sharing it with those I meet along the path of life. Some days are better than others, but you always have to remember to keep pressing on! Keep praising HIM & He’ll never fail to bring you through the storm.
