First, please let me say how utterly amazed I am at the outpouring of encouragement I have received throughout this 40 Days Lighter Journey! I am at a loss for the perfect words to express just how much I appreciate each and everyone of you who has taken the time to join me on this journey!
Second, for those of you who hopped into the story a little later on, please be sure to take a look at 40 Days Lighter – Day 1. There you will find out more about the challenge that inspired this journey, and some of the resources I have used in my reflections and change implementation along the way.
As I wrap up Day 40 of this amazing experience, know that my story is not over. I am still growing – lighter, wiser and better! And I have discovered that with all of this preparation, I am now ready to run!
This journey started, with me feeling like I needed to seriously declutter my mind, heart and life. I now end this adventure, having dropped serious weight, openly and transparently addressing the inner wrestlings of my heart, and deepening my relationships in ways I never knew possible.
So as I head off to bed, in awe of all that God has accomplished in me during this time, I will leave you with this thought, in the hope that you too, will take a step of faith into purpose, and find your way to living lighter and living free!
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
