Episode 40–67 and Counting

67 and Counting

It’s my 67th birthday. It scares, frustrates and excites me all at the same time. 

Every year on my birthday I like to think about what the past year has been like and what I’ve accomplished. That’s why my birthday is always a deadline of sorts for me. It’s usually the time I shoot for getting a book finished. 

This year is no exception. I’ve just finished my sixth book, Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds that Lead to Sugar Addiction. I talk more about that on this podcast. But I also share some highlights of what I’ve been through.

It really helps me to see how through the years I kept wanting God to show me what my purpose or destiny was. Instead it felt like He would change the subject and tell me what I should be doing regarding weight loss. I wanted to know about my purpose. Why was He telling me about what I needed to be doing regarding my weight.

For me, my weight and my destiny were totally intertwined. Now I’m asking a question T.D. Jakes asked back at the start of the year when we could still go to church. 

What do you want your life to look like in five years? What will you be doing in five years? What goals will you have accomplished in five years? 

I share those on this podcast. Now share yours with me.
