Yesterday Suzanne Eller tweeted "What has God called you to do/be? Do that. Be that. But those things that are not in your control, place those in God's domain."
I was thinking on that idea when I thought to myself. "What's my excuse right now?" "In this moment?" And you know what? There wasn't one. I can look behind and see all the reasons I haven't been successful at weight loss...I can look ahead and see all the reasons I *might* not be successful (holidays, vacations, easter candy)..but in almost every moment there is no excuse why I can't be successful in THAT moment.
Whether you believe as God as the Creator of your body or not, we know that the body was not created to look like many of us do. What is it supposed to be like? Do that/Be That. In THIS moment. Don't worry about dinner or tomorrow or next month. In THIS moment treat your body the way it is supposed to be treated.
That is my plan, right now. And I am trying to put things (and people) that I am not in control of in God's domain. Because, in all honesty, it's those things that usually trip me up in many areas of my life!
