Don't despise the process

Because you have the power and the teacher in the person of the Holy Spirit living inside, it's important to remember that you have what it takes. You, yes you, you have what it takes but if we're honest we just don't like the process. If you've ever been on any type of journey in life, it took some time, it took some trial and error, it took some warfare, which became a season of processing for you to get to your destination or reach your desired result. Take a moment to consider how far in life you would be if you fully yielded to the will of God, put faith into full action, trusted HIM, and spent less time resisting and resenting the process, and being fearful of every possible outcome painted for you by the enemy. Imagine where you'd be if you leaned not to your own understanding. (Read Proverbs 3:5-6)



Lately, I've been thinking about all of the times God has allowed me to go through the process to bring me to where He desires me to be. I'm experiencing a process, a journey now as it relates to my health. For those of you who are perhaps new to my blog or you just happened to land on this blog post, for a few years I've been faced with Type 2 Diabetes. The onset of this came while pregnant with our last child. For a few years after he was born, I had to continue medication to "manage" the diabetes and keep my blood sugars at a leveled state. I'd tried diet and exercise but I always seemed to revert back to my old eating habits to the point where I was just before being prescribed insulin shots and THAT shook me to the point that I got serious about my health, started making better eating choices and began to exercise.


For the past 3 years or so, I have managed (with the help of God) to reverse this diagnosis and become medication free. While this has happened for me, I still find myself struggling to make the right choices concerning my body. This struggle coupled with life-changing events, such as mourning the death of loved ones was beginning to have me spiraling out of control to the point that my doctor was considering putting me back on medication. Once again, I found myself going through the process of getting my health back on track. I say all of this because the process of it all was HARD. If you know me, you know I'd rather have a piece of cake and some coffee before having a balanced meal! I don't get up every morning wanting to exercise and prep healthy meals for the day, but I've decided that this is the process that is necessary for me to take charge of my health. I couldn't hate the process; I had to embrace it. I had to embrace it because the process of it all was going to make me better in the long run.


What God allows us to experience and go through in life, makes us better. When the process of it all is before you, don't despise it; embrace it. Embrace it because it's all going to make you better in the long run. (Read Romans 8:28) God always provides the grace we need to go through and the wisdom to do our part (when we ask Him for it). Be encouraged. You were made for what God has for you and you have what it takes because you have the GREATER ONE living inside of you. Don't despise the process.


Blessings and Love,


Wandra.
