For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 2 Peter 1:5-7
As I read this passage today, I thought about my health journey. It starts with diligence. I have to truly decide to earnestly go after living a healthy lifestyle. Not just a fade diet or a quick fix, but I have to diligently seek to honor God with my body. I need to keep faith that God will see me though and keep moral excellence in what He has spoke to me to do. I have learned the things I need to do. I have gained the knowledge. I need to now develop the self-control to be able to work out consistently. As I preserver with the self control, I will continue until I meet the completion of the goal and remain steadfast in honoring God with my body. I believe that entering into the journey with God will lead to godliness, The more I draw closer to Him, the more I will love others.
Prayer – Lord, Thank you for bringing me on this journey and being with me every step oft he way. Help me to continue to press in to You when I feel like things are hard. I love You!
