As of today Todd & I have been on The Daniel Plan for 4 weeks. He has lost 17 lbs! Go Todd! I have lost 6 lbs! Both of us have dropped a size. The most important is that we feel good. We haven’t gone hungry or felt deprived in any way.
Yesterday at church Todd spoke about how important community is to people. God made us that way. This is a biblical principle. I found 58 verses about “one another” in the Word. I’m convinced now that community has the power to change your overall health more than any doctor or clinic.
I was glad when Todd preached yesterday that he said being married is not what he is talking about when he says community. You need community whether you are married or not. Here are some benefits to community:
~Community is God’s answer to loneliness
~Community is God’s answer to defeat
~Community is God’s answer to fatigue
~Community is God’s answer to despair
When you connect with a loving community of friends, you will be better able to cope with things like fatigue, fear, frustration, and failure. You will be better able to handle and despair and most important, not have to walk through them alone. This is from Rick Warren’s book but is in Scripture.
Who are you in community with?
