me, myself and I

Me, myself and I.

So true. We battle ourselves!

Tonight as I reached for another helping of food, knowing I wasn't hungry ... just enjoyed the taste and texture of the food I battled myself and I won.

BUT, I had to say several times as I moved toward the plate...
"it won't satisfy me.... it Won't satisfy me... IT WON'T SATISFY ME".

I won, myself lost and "me" is in the middle staying neutral.


Sometimes we (me, myself and I) bump into each other. Most of the time we like each other... but oh freeek "myself" is always wanting something that "I" knows isn't good, it really is up to "me" to stand up for what is right - then "I" will Be successful.
"Hello, anyone there.... come on.... Pick up, please"

today's mantra

Not my will by Thy Will be done!

I was finding excuses to not put on Workout clothes and " do it".

So I tricked myself (funny how that really does work- self against Spirit I think)

I said to me "I'll just put on the clothes and at least walk down to the gym.
Then I said "ok I'll just do a few minutes"

well, I did and I pumped it up for 15 minutes and broke a sweat. YEA!

I won
Wait.... which of me really won? me or me L0L

The Garden

A thought came to me during my devotion this morning.

Man's defining moment was in the Garden of Eden.
Christ defining moment was in the Garden of Gethsemane.

God created mankind in his own image, but gave us a free will to serve Him or serve ourselves.

Everyday we are in the Garden making that choice, "whom will I serve today?"

Luke 4:8
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written,
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Deuteronomy 11:13
And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

Genesis 2:15-16 (King James Version)

15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gethsemane in the Bible: Matthew 26:36-46
As the hour of his death drew nearer, Jesus went with his disciples to pray in the garden of Gethsemane.
