WLW: Encouragement

I have prayed, many a time, for God to help me stay on a diet and exercise plan.  Many a time, I felt he was ignoring my requests.

Then, one of the two auto-immune diseases in my body reared its ugly head... again... and again... and again.  I found the best way to cope with the constant pain was 1. daily exercise and 2. staying on a restricted diet (I'll spare you the details).

God cracks me up.  Sometimes it feels that He gives me the most difficult/ painful/ annoying answers to my prayers.  BUT He always answers!  Not in a way that I might choose for myself, but it a way that He knows is best.

So, here is my encouragement/ advice...  ask God to be a part of your journey.  He is by far the best accountability partner you will ever have!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  -- Jeremiah 29:11


  1. love this!! God is truly awesome and even when His plans are not what we would have chosen for ourselves, they are always better....they are always right! God truly is the best accountability partner....EVER!!!!
    Bless you, Christine!

  2. Amen! What great advice! I do hope you are feeling better. But isn't it funny howwe learn our best lessons through our pain.

    Take care my friend!
