"Be strong and very courageous... do not turn from it to the right or to the left... do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:7-9
I will admit I'm upset! I'm mad, discouraged, and I have swayed from my goal. I have several things I could say made me not finish the marathon last Sunday, but oh well. It is in the past and I can't go back to that day. I do confess that it is horrible to have to tell people over and over "I DID NOT FINISH". I think I must have said those four words a thousand times since Sunday. I'm serious this has been so hard for me to deal with. Part of me was telling myself that I'm such a baby, or maybe I'm in the wrong profession. How can I help people reach their goals when I can't even help myself reach my goals.
And then.... I went to Bible Study and the above verse was the focus of our study. Really! (I love the analogy Beth Moore used.) She said that it's like playing chicken with the devil and we have to prove him to be the chicken. Hold on to that steering wheel and don't look left. Don't look right. Keep going straight ahead. Be courageous! I made up my mind then that I need to get back up, dust myself off and keep going.
Some of you may need to do the same. So it's cold outside. So you were sick last week. Tomorrow is another day. Get up and keep going. You have a goal and don't look left and don't look right; instead be courageous and keep getting to camp everyday and keep eating clean.
We love our campers! Have a great day and remember to SWEAT!!!!! (I said it right today.) :0)
