Getting Weary

Galations 6:8-9 (NKJV)
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

This has been on my mind this morning--getting weary in well doing. It is easy to do. I eat OP. I exercise. I focus on doing right. And though I am seeing amazing results, I still want more faster. Our society is so accustomed to instant gratification and I am cought in that web. I want to lose this weight and I want it gone NOW!

It is a daily reminder to "be still" and know that HE is God. He will decide how quickly or slowly I lose the weight. He is in control of all. All I need to do is follow His plan. The doubts arise and attack from all sides. But they are not from God. Our God is the God of hope. He wants us to have joy and peace in all we do to glorify Him--even losing weight.

Romans 15:13 (NKJV)
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
