Arise! Change is coming!

So today I will post it... I have to change. I have traveled down an unhealthy road and I don't even recognize myself. I know that others see me this way, but I still see the fit and healthy girl I used to be. I am ready to see her again!

I am ready to "consecrate" myself.  Just like Joshua told the Israelites in Joshua 3:5. "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you." Consecrate means make or declare (something, typically a church) sacred; dedicate formally to a religious or divine purpose. I see this as me saying loudly that I am done being unhealthy. I am ready to treat the body that the Lord gave me as I should treat it. I realize that the Israelites were preparing for something a whole lot bigger than my health, but as I have been reading through Joshua with the help of a devotional written by a good friend. (Move! When God's Deliverance Requires Man's Obedience 31 Devotions by Amy Rogers) As I have been reading, I have been hearing God tell me that I need to put Him first. I need to take care of what He has given me.  I have not. I have been taking all that I wanted without even thinking of Him. 

I am not 100% sure of how I am going to start this, but just as God told Joshua in 8:1-2, I just need to go. I don't need to think about it.  It's time to arise!

So... here I go!
