What I Have Been Learning
On Monday evening, Dick prompted us to think about what we might say to ourselves at the end of this program. Since I think a lot about how my heart finds satisfaction in all kinds of things such as food, success, convenience, ease of life rather than blessings bestowed on me by Jesus Christ, I asked myself if I am simply trading the idols of convenience and love for food for the idol of a skinnier me. My conclusion was God created my body and I have a responsibility to take care of the body he has given me. I also have the responsibility to not forgot the pursuit of godliness. My goal on Monday evening was to pursue them both. Little did I realize my desire to appear successful and having it all together would be challenged with activities such as marching and moving sideways across the floor. Thanks to all for the encouragement.
