Back to the END


21 days to health and wellness... Umm mm let's see

I've become more aware of "habits"
I've become more aware of making commitments
I've become more aware!

I think I'm more thoughtful in food choices
I think I'm more thoughtful about how I start my day
I think... ya... I think... therefore I am!

I still have excuses about routine. Ah, I have to face it... I don't seem to do anything the same way twice. It's as though I avoid doing something systematic.. or routine.

No, that's not true. I developed a habit when I walk in the door of putting my keys and purse in the same place every time.

Why? Mostly because I became so frustrated at loosing my keys and purse.
Self Preservation! But, when I'm not at home(s), I get all messed up. Why, because
I don't have the same place to put my stuff.

So, I see the problem.
It's difficult for me to have a routine when my life doesn't have routine.

NO EXCUSES! but yet it's a real excuse.

so, this week I HAVE TO, WANT TO, WILL TO (ya that's good.... "will too".. you know my will)

I WILL TO make (not find) 30 minutes to pray and exercise at the same time!

I have noticed as much as I have drawn closer to my walk with the Lord through this journey, I NEED to develop a more effect prayer life. I pray, but DO I LISTEN!?
I pray, but do I LISTEN!!!! I stray when I am reading the bible, I stray (my mind) when I'm praying. I need God to heal and help my brain NOT STRAY!

another thought (oh, ya there I go straying!)

I had something disturb me this morning. (relationship issue) And as it disturbed me in my soul and even in my stomach.... I was fighting myself saying "I refuse to let this rob me of my joy today!" "Oh, Lord help me". How come I can tell others "you need to just get over it and move on" yet here I was plagued by my disturbing, disappointing almost angry thoughts. Then I "thought".... In order for me to STOP these thoughts I need to think on "what is true, lovely, ..... etc" SO, I tried but .... failed.
THEN I recalled that if
out loud
(thank goodness I was in the car)
it would work.

AND IT DID! I sang "hallelujah song" strong and loud, thinking in my head...
Thank you Jesus and began to praise HIM.

Miracle... it worked! I was restored peace in my soul and joy.

God inhabits the praises of His people"
Psalms 22:3

Count my blessings,

praise Him,

develop routine and habits that bring

Health and Wellness

to my body, soul and spirit

Start again in the morning!
