Okay! Here goes some soul searching honesty and accountability. Two years ago after a health scare, I lost a hundred pounds, earned my third and fourth degree, made many proactive steps to grow my Outreach for Christ, and greatly expanded my service to others.
I hate excuses especially from myself!!! Candidly, I allowed myself to gain 65-70 of the pounds back and have been wallowing in a swamp of self-pity, from some mean punches life has thrown at me during the last year or so. Maybe this has been invisible to others but it is certainly visible to me. I humbly apologize to my Creator, for this lack of commitment.
I am going to carve back off 70-75 pounds in the next 6-7 months, go up for my 5th degree, renew my Christian service vision with a fiery zeal and double down my service to others and my community. I will do this with the Divine enabling and strength of my loving Lord and Savior Jesus. On this day marking, this 8 years of life transformation, I make and declare this decision and ask for your prayers to do the same and fulfill this commitment. So help me God!
