Have you ever wanted to give up on achieving your fitness goals because you thought it was too late to make a big difference? Cathy here from Weight Loss God’s Way. Today, let’s talk about the serious emotions that come along with thinking that improvement is impossible to achieve. I want to help you refocus your attention on a renewed health journey that will help you stay on track and find hope for your health.
Biblical Perspective: Overcoming Past Burdens
We are often burdened by our fears and past mistakes, which prevent us from making progress in our health and other areas. Even though we know that we were crucified with Christ, we allow guilt and shame to cast a shadow. Let us release ourselves from the bonds of our history and recognize that we are new creations in Christ by focusing on Galatians 2:20, which states, “I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”
Imagine leading a confident life that is worry-free and unaffected by the opinions of others. Galatians 2:20 exhorts us to live by faith, acknowledging that Christ has the capacity to change us. Your health journey is not dictated by your past, and your past does not define your future. Accept the fact that you are who God says you are and that you are capable of achieving your goals. It’s time to live in the freedom that Christ offers and let go of the burdens.
Shifting Focus: Surrendering to God in Your Health Journey
The first step in achieving holistic health is altering your perspective. Turn your attention from previous sins and errors to your identity in Christ. Give God the reins of your journey, acknowledging His helping hand at every turn. Your habits do not define you, nor does your past dictate your future. Release yourself from shame and guilt by realizing that, with faith and surrender, change is not only possible but attainable.
