What do "lifestyle changes" and "faith" have in common?

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Three weeks ago I made changes in my life:
1) I quit weighing myself (2-3 times per day!)
2) I quit drinking red wine (I know it’s supposed to be good for you, but calories are calories)
3) I started taking the stairs (4 flights) at work – several times a day

A week ago I doubled my work-out routine. I’m now doing a 30-minute aerobic work-out with Richard:
(Stop. Giggling.)

This weekend I picked up a cough that has settled in my chest, but I’m still pushing forward in faith. I don’t want to break my new routine. I am not measuring my progress on the scale, but with the intangible of how I feel. At the moment, I feel kinda crappy.

In faith, I pray. I trust God, even when answers are not obvious. Even when changes are not measurable. Even when it would be easier to feel discouraged. I push forward in faith. I pray. I desire to make my faith part of my lifestyle. Faith intertwined, let me live a prayer – in communication with God. Let my life be a testimony of my faith.
