Ok, Day One.
Why do I say FREAK! ? Because, I woke up with being informed that my morning would be altered with a multitude of task that I didn't anticipate!
So, Day ONE didn't start with the beginning of developing HABIT!
YET, with an attempted sense of Humor and "positive" thinking IT"S FREAKIN 2 HOURS later and I'm just starting !
Ok, reality check. What a great challenge! Flexibility! Sense of Humor!
During this chaotic morning I was reflecting on "church camp" as a child. Loved, Loved, Loved summer Church camp every year from 8 years old to 15 years old. Great Experience.
When only 8 years old during my first Church camp I had a Spiritual experience. Now mind you I was Raised in Church! So the message wasn't new to me. But, I experienced the Touch of the Holy Spirit. I was filled and even experienced speaking in Tongues and "slain" as they call it. It was truly a mountain top experience. I would leave Church camp every summer ready to go and tell ALL my friends about Jesus. But, as you may know As soon as the Bus hit Sea Altitude .... my Faith and experience was challenged. It was as if the Devil himself would try to squelch my enthusiasm to be a Christian and Walk the Talk.
Again, I see even now as an adult when I attempt to change for the Better, Start a Diet, Start making positive changes... The Devil jumps right into the middle and attempts to Take away my excitment by placing CHALLENGES in my way.
But, I've become more resilent to these challenges. I see them as nothing more than a step up that I need to take when walking a easy road. So, This morning I step up ! I WILL shake off this morning as a learned experience, a challenge to my determination.
Today's scripture verse is:
Isaiah 40:31 (King James Version)
31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
I will think on this verse today.... WAIT on the LORD! Think it, ponder it, talk it, walk it , LIVE IT~
Salute! Gotta get going!
