Soap Box Thursday - Scripture Confrontations

Does it bother you when people use Scripture...Bible verses to be right? To make you look bad? I have found that you can almost find a scripture to back up almost anything you decide is right or wrong. Scripture read out of context can be twisted and manipulated to fit pretty much whatever you would like it to.

I find it interesting when people use scripture to point out things in you that they are just sure is wrong, all the while if they first of all understood the context of the verses they used.. they would realize it did not apply to their meaning in the confrontation and secondly they would realize that there might be a verse just a column over that exposes the sins in their life.

I just think personally, we need to be very careful and very sure when using the Bible to back up our opinion or our arguments. And most of all make sure our own lives and hearts are right with the Lord first.

That's it! Short and Sweet this week! lol

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
