Sunday Funday?

Today was the worst pregnant day yet. I didn't have any physical pain but golly was I an emotional mess. I woke up feeling pretty good about today but my first mistake was stepping on the scale. WOW I never thought I'd see a number that big in my life time even if I am pregnant. It was all down hill from there. I had a crying fit about what to wear today, didn't speak 2 words to Kyle on our way to church, about hyperventilated from tears, and then BAM God seemed to do the trick.
We visited Bannockburn Baptist Church today with my inlaws (they joined therel) and the message was from Philippians 3 and the Title was Passion. "12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
I love the book of Philippians! As believers we are to live in Victory! The motivation that changed something for Paul came from pressing forward! Dwelling on the past is not how we were designed. In fact the pastor reminded us that the way our physical bodes, our eyes, nose, mouth, etc are designed is to go forward. When we live and walk with Jesus our needs are met and we can then live victorious. ALWAYS! Be passionate about the one who moves us forward and live VICTORIOUSLY.
Funny that not 2 hours before I was completely defeated in this fleshly body of mine. I allowed something like a number on the scale to defeat my joyful spirit and set the tone for my day. How easy it is to fall for such lies!

Jesus thank You for your truth, passion, and victory. Thank You that You reminded me not to look in the past or my old ways but to remain focused on You and the here and now. Thank You that I have NOW and I don't have to worry. Help me to rest in the NOW and move forward with all consuming passion for You and your people. Change me and make me a more like You. Help me to be a passionate lover of you, wife, friend AND mother :) I love you AMEN!


  1. Hey Jenny~
    I know the feeling of stepping on the scale and breaking down. Hang in there and know that your little precious baby is being well taken care of in your belly... and will be here soon!

  2. I know exactly how it feels to step on the scale and feel like that. I'm glad you felt better after church. Sometimes that feeling can linger w/me for days.
