There's something about that Name

Dear Lord,
Center me ..... in You.
For as I have found......when I seek YOU, I find what I really want and need. I am truly satisfied.

Still walking the journey....
The journey of seeking a life where my habits are centered in what brings me health and wellness.

Body, Mind and Spirit - Balance!
Yet the foundation is my love of JESUS.... because there is something about that NAME!

FEED YOUR SPIRIT ! Hunger after a relationship with Jesus

Great book to read -
The Principle of the Path to where you want to be by Andy Stanley

Pump up the work out -
30 minutes of breaking some "glow" and then stretches
- truly relieves those tight neck and shoulder muscles! Strength your lower back!
firm up, tighten up and FEEL great that your doing something RIGHT!

Are you looking at food as something your body NEEDS - GOOD
Are you looking at food as what brings health and wellness -GOOD
Are you looking at food like it will satisfy, bring you pleasure -STOP IT

Now go drink some water kissed with lemon and PEE!

Salute! to your health and wellness

SPEAK words of life, positive statements, say what you want to believe
then you'll WALK the TALK!

self discipline - OUCH!

Hate the word Discipline -

Self discipline

Self-discipline refers to the training that one gives one's self to accomplish a certain task or to adopt a particular pattern of behavior, even though one would really rather be doing something else.

yes, that's me. "rather be doing something else" like sleeping!

So, I wake up... Open my sorry eye's .... put a smile on my face.... say "bless the Lord"

and get me #$'@* out of bed....


Thus, self-discipline is the assertion of willpower over more base desires, and is usually understood to be a synonym of 'self control'. Self-discipline is to some extent a substitute for motivation, when one uses reason to determine a best course of action that opposes one's desires. Virtuous behavior is when one's motivations are aligned with one's reasoned aims: to do what you know is best and to do it genuinely gladly.

1 Peter 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Proverbs 25:28
Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.

Good news... Motivation! is the key. Now say it with me "internal monolog"

I WANT to take care of me. I feel better, look better "am better" when I take care of me.

I choose to have Christ live in ME, therefore I need to take care of me, because I LOVE HIM who died for me!

Amen, and Amen
