What speaks volumes to me more than knowing I have to rethink my diet is the fact that I know this at all. I no longer deceive myself by playing a guessing game. When I pray, I hear from Him. When I ask for answers, I have the capability to hear His intake. My head is no longer stuck in the sand. I have an intimate relationship with the one who knows it all ... who loves me beyond measure ... who proved His love for me by making the biggest sacrifice ever ... and who gives the best advice ever!!!!
Hearing from Him and acknowledging Him is a big battle of its own, but the bigger battle is doing something about what He says. Ouch! This is where it gets pretty tough. My mind is ready but my flesh is not. I have some big decisions to make in the coming days. Please pray for me as I strive ... tiny step by tiny step ... to get my life back together physically so I can be my best mentally. You cannot separate the two as they go hand in hand.
I think taking baby steps is the best way for me. If I dive in and try to do things in a big way, as I have done in the past, then I am setting myself up for failure. I did not get into this mindset overnight and I will not get out of it overnight. It is not a get-successful-quick story. It is a growth process.
Today I will start changing how I start my day ... breakfast! I think I will boil me a few eggs and have some fruit. What do you think?
Getting pretty excited for my niece who is getting married on March 31st. She is going to make such a beautiful bride.
My son goes on Spring break next week. A good sign that better weather days are around the corner. It is so hard to believe he will be wrapping up his 2nd year of college. Two down and two to go!
I get to see my daughter and some of her family tomorrow night. I never get to spend enough time with her. I hate that we live so far away from one another. I am blessed, however, because they are all in good health, have great jobs, and are doing well. It does a mother's heart well to know her children are doing well.
I am getting ready to have posters made for my first book signing. I am very nervous, excited, and a little bit of everything. I do not do well in the spotlight. Before Christ, I had to be spotlight. Now, I would much rather be the one holding the spotlight on someone else. God has changed me so much.
Ok, I have to run and get ready for work. God bless and have a wonderful day! Be a blessing and let His Son shine through you!
