But enough about that! Last night was our meeting of "The Biggest Loser". It was a small group, but I so appreciate it. I so need the accountability and support this group offers. I so appreciate the dear woman that has committed to us and leads the group. I would like to talk about her for a minute, not gossip, but praise. I have "known" this woman ever since we have gone to this church. Her husband and her have been (to me at least) a quiet fixture of of congregation. We've never talked that much, but I've always liked her and their constant faithfulness. Through this program I have gotten to know her better, and last night (probably because the group was so small), we were able to have a great conversation that I really needed to have last night! I believe it was God appointed! I learned a few answers to questions I always wondered about that pertained to them and their commitment to our particular local body.
So you see this group is more then just about weight loss! It's about relationship. It's a small way of being the body of Christ to one another! So often we try to struggle alone through things. I know I am good at that. But it is through the help of our family (in this case the church family) that we are supported, encouraged, and grow in the Lord.
Ephesians 4:15 & 16
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
I want to thank everyone that attends this group for being part of my journey!!
