Are you ready for this?

“...But where sin increased, grace increased all the more”

(Romans 5:20

Are you condeming yourself because you've tried SO many times to get this weight loss thing "right"? Do you think you're too far gone, too out of control, and totally not worth the effort it takes? Are you like some of the people that think if they walk in the church  that it's all of a sudden going to come crashing down on them?

Forget all those thoughts! They are sooo not true! It doesn't matter a "hill of beans" what you've done, where you've been, how many times you've tried...God's grace is STILL sufficient for you and YOU STILL can do this AGAIN! You can't even earn His grace by doing good. It's a totally free gift to You. All you have to do is accept it.

None of us are ever going to do "this" perfectly, myself included. However, I can give myself my all thru Him! Quit beating yourself up and let's do this thing together!

He's coming again! He's Alive! Are you ready for this?

Thanks so much for posting this Carla!!! I'm going through some obstacles at work and have been stressed out to say the least! Also I'm taking a week or so off from working out to hopefully help my knees to recover! I've really been pushing myself harder here lately and I think it finally caught up with me!

I am so glad that I stumbled on your website!! I know this was the hand of the Lord who led me here. I was so touched about your blog,I sooo needed to hear this because I have soooo many times tried Every weightloss product you could think of. I guess not feeling worthy of who lives in me is stronger than the demons I fight everyday of acceptance. Reading your blog helps to me to know that the "Greater One" lives in me and gives me the strength I need to carry on everyday!!! Thank yo again, Woman of God!!!!

Just what I needed to hear today Carla! I just finished exercising and I thought, "What is the point, I am never going to get to where I want to be." Then I come here...

The point is you're taking care of yourself, because you've still got lots of "work" to do, my friend. Lots more to teach, lots more healthy living to do! Be happy where you are now and strive for what you're shooting for. Hugs!

I know I am "worth" it, I know I deserve to do this for myself, for my health. I just can't seem to fully commit and stick with it. I try WW, I count calories. I will do great for a week and then I slip into old habits.

You know what yes, you CAN! Remove try and can't from your vocabulary. When you say those things you're already setting yourself up for failure. Tell yourself daily you can and you are going to do this and don't settle for less. Prove to yourself that you can do it, because you can. You hear me? You can. Yes, you can. You can.
