Too tired of trying to be healthy?

Choosing health is work, especially in the western world. As hard as I'm fighting to overcome a major disease, it can really wear you out. But I was encouraged by something I found in the Bible:

"So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit."

Though Paul wasn't talking about health, it still applies. IF we don't quit, we'll get a reward. That's what I'm fighting for. Don't give up your fight. Health is worth it. You've got to have health to achieve almost anything. You need to be healthy to think straight (ask me how I know!)
You may not see the fruit of your small changes today. Honestly, most improvements take time if you do them naturally. But you will if you don't give up!

This is so encouraging to me. Thanks for a great blog. I wanted to say, Thanks for your encouragement and your comments on my blog! I admire that you are able to pull this off...the diet thing. I am still working my way through Performance Without Pain in detail. I have found a cow that I can get milk from but I have to be able to milk her myself...I can't with tendonitis in both arms. :-( They will be having a meeting with the other milkers since they have lost a milker and see if there is anyone who would share a milk day with me and would do the lifting of the milk machine and I can help do all the other stuff and share the milk for that day. Of course, all of that is dependent on two things...that someone would want to share a day and that my dr doesn't immobilize one or both of my arms at my appt. Feb 26 or decide I need surgery.
I discovered for the first time that Costco sells canned Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon now! Nothing but Salmon and salt in the ingredients. So now I have a wild fish source that is convenient. Thankyou Lord! It's pricey though.
I also discovered a source for organic beef bones to make bone broth. So, slowly, the Lord will guide me to find what I need. I may not be able to do the diet all the way like the lady did in the book, but I figure if I do as much as I possibly can it has to help some.
God is able to do abundantly above and beyond my expectations if that is His will.
