I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  Romans 12:1-2

Ha! LOL!  Do you see it in there! As I read God's Word to seek strength in managing this Diabetes I find wisdom right here in these verses that encourage "testing", an area in which I am very weak!  In our lives there will be times of testing in our Spiritual walk. Times that will challenge our commitment, reaffirm our faith, and reveals the magnitude of God's love. As I reflect on God's Word concerning my health and managing this disease I am encouraged that "testing" will help me discern what is good, acceptable and perfect in order to present my body as that living sacrifice. If "testing" could help in this process it seems time I get with the program and develop a testing schedule that allows me to know where my blood glucose levels (BGL's) are and adjust my eating, medication, and/or exercise accordingly and while I'm at it make a few attitude adjustments to stay motivated and persistent i.e. long suffering!

Ginger Vieira has been a source of wisdom and encouragement in my walk through managing my diabetes.  This is just a little clip encouraging blood glucose testing. She has many other video blogging messages. I hope she can be a source of encouragement to you as well.
