hang in there... it'll be 3:05 soon

Although you may not see the reward today.... do not stop doing what is right.

We are a society of "INSTANT" everything.   We want it now.  Actually, we want it yesterday.

So when it comes to the rewards of making healthy choices.... whether it be food choices, or being kind to a stranger, the reward may not be instantaneous.

There is a story of a Physician assisting a patient with weight loss.  The patient came in for her appointment.  

So very disappointed in the number on the scale, ready to give up and say "forgetaboutit".

She swore to the Doctor that she had followed the weight loss plan to the "T". No loss in weight!

The smart Doctor than  took the time to re-measure the patients waist, chest and hips.

The Patient had LOST INCHES!   She was again re-vitalized by the numbers she read.

Isn't that just like us.

It's not easy to walk by faith and not by sight.

Numbers shouldn't dictated our choice to do what is right !

We must trust that when we are making healthy lifestyle choices we will be rewarded:
  • Eating high nutritional foods in reasonable portions
  • Exercising, being active!
  • Giving our anxiety and worries to God in Prayer and Praise
  • Being more consumed with giving than receiving
We may not see the immediate rewards of doing it right.... 
but it is a law of life
You will be rewarded!  

2 Corinthians 5:7  

 For we walk by faith, not by sight

BE patient  it will be 3:05 soon!
