Prayer Labyrinth Blessings

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Wow I haven't blogged for a while...checking out some of the teams I belong to here on SP and there isn't a lot of activity so I thought I'd update my blog...I am so excited to be leading a group through the book Made to Crave by Lysa Terkuerst...it was such a blessing the first time I led a group that I was asked to lead it again...I am also attending a Recovery group to deal with food issues and maybe some anger and trust issues I have...found an accountability partner today which was a blessing indeed and a much needed answer to prayer...I visited a local prayer labyrinth today with a group from church which sounds weird at first but it is so neat...the persons that own the land planned out and planted out this neat little maze for people to walk through as they pray and meet God there...there are 3 stones at the centre representing Father, Son and Holy Spirit...You go through at your own pace and can stop at stones to sit and pray or meditate or read your bible or listen to God's whisper in your ear...It was a beautiful sunny warm fall day and you could just feel God's presence and then when I least expected it I got an answer to a prayer...and I just kept hearing Trust, Trust, Trust...Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and don't depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

On another positive note...I am down 65 pounds and have been here for quite some time now but I am not discouraged...I need to refocus and am hoping that I can get back on track very soon...after getting the OK from my doctor later this week...exercise has become a little bit painful and so I must get this investigated before moving too far ahead and ignoring the pain.

If you read this out of idle curiosity then welcome...I wish you success on your journey and don't give up...I am almost at the one year anniversary of when I realized how very sick I was and then being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure and severe anemia...everything appears to be under control now...and there is even talk of getting rid of some medication this is a huge victory for me! I have never lost this much weight and kept it off for this long...nor have I ever been this committed to my exercise program...

I have an awesome life and such a great support group without whom I would never have come this far...I thank them and am thankful for them everyday...Live, laugh, love and don't ever stop!!!

    I love the idea of the labyrinth. My first experience with a prayer room was really wonderful. Even before you entered you could feel the presence of God. A lot of people took their shoes off because the presence was so heavy. Such a blessing.
    Wow, I'm impressed with a 65 lb loss. It doesn't hurt to just enjoy where you are for a while. Perhaps you weren't ready to move on until now. God bless you on your journey.
