Happy MLK Day! I am at home today and I will celebrate my dad’s birthday tonight so it is a good day for me for many reasons!
Yesterday in church, our pastor talked about Faith. He gave this MLK quote and I just loved it and KNEW I had to share it with you!
Faith…it is so hard yet so simple all at the same time.
It was just over four years ago when I walked into Weight Watchers for the upteenth time. Did I think I would successfully lose 100 pounds? Nope. Did I think there was a possibility that the program could work? Sure! I mean, how many times has it been voted number one for weight loss programs? I had faith in the program but very little faith in myself.
However, I took the first step. I walked through the doors with my dad, weighing over 270 pounds, and I had faith that maybe this time Weight Watchers would work for me too!
Did I see the whole “weight loss staircase?” Nope.
Have I stumbled down a few steps? Absolutely.
Have I thrown myself down a few steps? Unfortunately, yes.
Have I walked down some and ran down others? Yes, yes, yes!
Have I loved descending down the staircase and the journey of the walk? Without a doubt!
Have I reached the bottom, the prize, made it to my destination? Not yet!
Will I make it to the bottom? WITHOUT A DOUBT!
How do I know?
Because I have faith. I have faith in myself. I have faith in the program and I know that I will get there.
I want to encourage you today to take the first step. It doesn’t have to be into a Weight Watchers. It can be anything you have faith in. But, before you can be successful, you MUST take the first step. Believe in yourself and make today your day!
