Connect to the Lord, whatever you do, and he will establish your plans ~Proverbes 16:3 How can your plans for healthiness and balance succeed? You need two things: prayer and diligence. Prayer and diligence are like two sides of the same coin. You pray as if it all depends on God and you work as if it all depends on you. Putting your whole effort into it feels differnt when you have prayed about it and God is empowering you in it. Committing to the Lord whatever you do means saying," God, I'm committing to you another another day, one day at a time. I want to be healthier at the end of the day than when I got up this morning. Please give me strength to do my part in that." That's the pray part. Proverbs 13:4 says, "The desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." In other words, you've got to do your work, your part. It takes faith, focus, food, fitness and friends. You eat right; you exercise. You focus your thoughts on God and God's proimises. You get enough sleep. You build community. That's the diligence part. FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Transformation is super-powered when you are diligent and devoted and dependent on God.
