I’ve lost about 20 pounds this year. I plan on losing more next year.
I lost weight as a direct result of my growth as a Christian. In youth group last spring we were talking about giving back to God because he gives so much to us and we asked, “What is something God gave us that we don’t always act thankful for?”
One girl said, “Our bodies.”
And like that I knew I had to take better care of my body. And so I do.
I’m telling you this story because I want to establish that I think that there isn’t a single part of life that isn’t influenced by our decision to follow God. Even the way we eat should be.
