Getting on track

Hi long time no see!

Since I have been gone I have done a lot of work on my homestead getting heaven view ranch up and running has been a big task. While I have been trying to get my ranch going though I have drifted away from the life style I wanted to create and make available to not only my self but others as well. And do to that drift I have not been feeling very well and my body has not been recuperating nearly as fast as it usually does. Which is not good when you are working with animals all day and then going to work in the evenings.

And I know I have made promises before about my weight loss and health but I never really had any support until now. Monday me and my friend C decided that if we didn't make major changes now that we would have major health issues forever and they would just keep getting worse. She is taking it a little farther than I am do to the fact she is older and has extra health issues along with weight. I am going grain free because I know that it triggers weight gain and discomfort for me. Along with this I am starting an unprocessed diet which means I am staying on the outside aisle of the store or items off my property. C on the other hand is doing a juice detox this week and then going on an unprocessed diet such as my self. We don't have weight goals our only goal now is to feel good and be healthy.

Not only do I have someone riding through this with me but I am asking God to help keep this in my heart so that I may have more days to share his love with the world. I am thankful God has given me the help I needed and the opportunity to workout with a meaning (which is basically anything that pertains to the farm). Not going to have much time to sit on my butt anymore so I am praying that with this rise in activity level I will excel in my weight loss journey.

I don't know why this is weighing on my mind so much but I feel this is really important to say.

If you have an eating disorder wether it anorexia or emotional eating please talk to someone. Let anyone that will listen know you can even email me I would love to help you out and get you to where you need to be!

judment and caring

Personally I feel like a magnet for people that need guidance towards God and I appreciate the opportunities to help get people on track, but then I see things like "hate the sin not the sinner" "only God can judge" Luke 6:37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven". These are the things that make me wonder if what I am doing is right when does caring and guidance become judgment? If you think about it you start to judge when you just don't care anymore. In order to guide someone down a difficult path you have to be there for them care for them and love them give them a better life then they had before they had a guide. Even if it takes years and they don't completely follow your guidance it's ok you haven;t failed. As long as you are giving them a way to get out of a current life style and encouraging them then you are doing more than most can say they have tried to do.

And even if you hate the sin and not the sinner you can not turn a blind eye and accept that sin. If you do this you don't help them strengthen their relationship with God all you do is leave them in the hole in which you found them. We are supposed to bring them up out of the hole and demolish that sin because when we take a sin out of one another's lives that is showing true love and compassion that we took the time and effort to show them how they can have a better and eternal life! Proverbs 3:5-6 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." This verse really helped me to write this post as did God because I prayed before I wrote this and asked God to guide my mind to share with you his teachings and this could help you or someone you know to get out of a maze and on to a path God created just for you and he knows it leads to the best prize any one could ever be honored with.
