One Hundred pounds! You read correctly, she lost one hundred pounds! I am so excited to introduce you to my amazing friend Jessica Heights, who blogs over at Muthering Heights.
Not only is Jessica beautiful, energetic and creative, but also, the girl lost one hundred pounds and kept it off! That is like a whole person!
In her new eBook, 100 Pound Loser, which is now available on Amazon, Jessica gives us the wisdom of her success. She shares her discernment in eating out of depression, eating out of hormone changes, and eating from hunger.
I was able to quickly recognize myself as Jessica’s quick wit and colorful descriptions of eating styles brought a spot light to my kitchen!
Are you thinking about losing a little or a lot of weight this year? Wouldn’t you like to get advice from someone who is an everyday mom, like us; and, not some movie star? She didn’t join a gym, or perchance an eating plan or have surgery. So how did she do it?
Why not go to Amazon, and get her eBook, One Hundred Pound Loser, by Jessica Heights?
It has been months since I have been able to participate in one of my favorite blogging activities, Five Minute Fridays with Lisa-Jo Baker. So, to say that I’m feeing a little rusty is an understatement.
The word for today is opportunity – so here goes!
Like fishing line caught up in the engine of a jet ski, so are our activites that are not directed by God. Plans for a hope, and a future, can become a tangled mess if we are completely in charge of our own dystiny.
Our own purposes can get tangled with the Will of God, when we get ahead of Him. When we do not seek Him before casting our line into the waters of life, we simply slow down the plans that He has for us.
We know we are called to be fishers of men (women); but, throwing the line out on the wrong side, or casting out when God is backing us up, is the perfect recipe for a tangle in the engine.
It is also the perfect opportunity for us to see God in a new light.
God never wastes anything – including errors made by over ambitious children – they are simply learning opportunities. They are times when God can pull us close, hand us a boy scout knife, and explain the fine art of cutting loose fishing line cast too soon; and, line that is caught up in an engine that is suppose to take us fishing.
There are days that seem like a total disaster to us; but, those are the days that God calls, Opportunities.
