Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Christmas Countdown Tip of the Day

to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, course of action, or the like, especially in spite of opposition.

What one of us doesn't face opposition when it comes to eating right and working out? So why is it that some of us succeed and some fail? It comes down to this: Some of us choose to PERSIST and some of us choose to QUIT.

That reminds me of something God said in Deuteronomy 30:19. He said, "I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life!"

It's like: Here you go--here are your two choices. Now, I'm going to tell you which one to pick so you'll be sure to get it right.

So this is what I'm saying to you today: Choose to PERSIST!

I've never met a person who regretted being persistant towards having and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You never hear people say, "I just wish I had given up and quit working out." But how many times do you hear people say, "I just wish I would have stuck with it and kept exercising." ????????
Can I get a resounding "DUH!!!" This isn't multiple choice y'all. There's only one answer and it's not a pill or a diet--it's Eat Clean/Work Out. Period.

Okay, I'm done being harsh....hope you all have a wonderful, happy, blessed, joyful, Jesus-filled day!
