DAY 2: Commit to Staying on the Right Path

I don’t know about you, but when I have a really big task ahead of me, I procrastinate to tackle it. Some tasks can be overwhelming. And, if I feel like there is no way I can accomplish it, I might not even attempt it to even start.

How silly is that? Isn’t it better to do something than nothing? Well, it definitely is when it comes to health and fitness. Even if you don’t lose the weight as fast as you want to, or you aren’t eating healthy every single day, every attempt to eat right and exercise is better than no attempt at all.

Even if you have a substantial amount of weight you need to get off, don’t settle for staying on the wrong path just because you already feel defeated. Be a fighter. Just because the path is difficult, we shouldn’t avoid the path altogether. Some of my best experiences required a long narrow tough path.

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14

Don’t miss out on some of the best experiences in life because it’s too hard to get there.

I remember having to climb several hundred steps (pictured right) to see a beautiful waterfall. My calves were sore for days, but it was so worth it. That is just a small example of what life often requires of us. Don’t miss out on some of the best experiences in life because it’s too hard to get there. Despite being tired and winded as I climbed and climbed up those steps, I enjoyed the view at every level. I took so many pictures along the way and there was a new discovery at every corner. The same goes for many of life’s journeys.

You can stay on the road to nowhere or you can commit to taking the long road, but celebrate it because it’s the right road – and every step you take, will get you closer to your destination!

Lastly, the wrong road may be easier, but it is equally painful – just in different ways. We can suffer the pain of change, or suffer remaining the same.

Sometimes “you have to get through the bad part to get to the good part” – Joyce Meyer

“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening–it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.” Hebrews 12:10

If you have decided you are going to get on the right path, you’re already a winner, on the path to a healthier you!


Scripture of the Day:

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14
