Who are You Following?
I think this is wonderful! It is also very humbling. It encourages me to do my best so I can continue to be an encouragement to others. Giving up is simply not an option when I know there are others counting on me to succeed because that will help them succeed!
The problem with being followed, however, is that at some point I'm bound to disappoint. I might say something in this here blog that is stupid or offensive, or maybe someone will get tired of how I whine about having to go to church potlucks...and then what? What will happen to those who are following in my footsteps? Will they become discouraged and quit? There have been many times in my life and in my weight loss efforts when I have put my faith, trust and hope into another person...and have been severely de-railed when they didn't live up to my expectations.
So while I am very happy to have so many people moving toward a healthier life through my example, I encourage any who are doing so not to put your faith, trust and hope into me. Put it into our Lord and Savior, because He is the only one who will never dissapoint you. He is also the one who will get you through the hard times, pick you up when you've fallen, and love you no matter what! He is the not-so-secret of my success. If you want to follow my example, then follow Him.
