A Walk Will Do You Good

Girl Crossing the Finish Line

This morning as I was walking, God enlightened me on a few things. For the past couple of days I have just felt beat down, ugly, fat, bloated–just NOT pretty.

Today I decided it was time to really start trying to lose these 50 pounds I need to lose. Yes. 50. Anyway, as I was walking I was listening to Casting Crowns and this song spoke volumes to me today. Here is how:

Voice of Truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I’m in (Being overweight)
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone (food, my couch, and chocolate)
Into the realm of the unknown (weight loss and exercise) where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

But the waves(failures and bad attempts at trying to lose weight) are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed (giving up when it gets hard)
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. “Boy, you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!” ( you cannot lose this weight. You will always be fat)

But the voice of truth tells me a different story (you can do this. Trust Me)
The voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”
The voice of truth says, “This is for My glory” (Let me shine through this weight loss journey)
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant (being fat)
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors (others who are wanting to lose weight)
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand (not giving in to defeat)

But the giant’s (being fat) calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again. “Boy you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!”

But the stone (my strength) was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don’t seem so high
From on top of them lookin’ down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth (YOU are beautiful because YOU are mine)
