Hummmm, just thinking about ...... stuff.

Health is a state of body, but also a state of mind.

The quest I'm on is about bringing balance to my life.

Balancing body, mind and soul.

When I'm struggling.... with anything, I need to put into check where and what is happening on all three levels.

They are not separate. They are beautifully and intricately connected.

So, when as in today I was seeking "joy" in my life. My attitude/thoughts were affected by my Body fighting a hang over from the 4th. It's not that I drank too much wine. It's that I didn't eat well in combination with having a few glasses of wine (went to a party and I hated the choices of food - Hot Dog's are not my thing!).

So, today I felt like ... ahhh I'll say it "crap". Headache, nausea.... just tire.

So, I think ..... ok.... I poisoned myself yesterday with Not eating healthy foods, drinking 2 glasses of wine more than I should have... YIKES! WHY do we do this to ourselves?

Now, as much as I "think" I choose today to pull myself together .... I HAD to pay the price for poor choices yesterday.

That's life.... You buy a ticket for a trip..... then don't freaking get mad when you end up at a destination you don't like.... YOU BOUGHT THE TICKET ! you choose it.... What, you didn't think it would REALLY travel to this destination? Ahhh, we (humans) are not stupid.... just foolish.

So, back on track.... I need to balance my life by Making wiser choices.

Adam and Eve! She had the knowledge of what NOT to do... but she choose to take a bite!
Yes, she can say she was decieved and fooled into her choice BUT.... she WANTED to make the choice...

No more excuses!! I know that I know that I know.....

Once again, the fight is with ME! I know what to do, how to do it... and God's made available all the TOOLS I need to be sucessful.

Hummmmm, just thinking

I was thinking about my blog

Ok, so yesterday... travel day.... holiday....

But, Praise God.... my 21 day "thing" is paying off. I had the need to blog! Like a habit that you feel uncomfortable if you don't do it. That's good!

Yet, I needed my time with the Lord yesterday morning. It was a stressful day (events).

It is true that to keep focus on "Life" and being the "Life" for me is the "Lord" (for me to live is Christ and to die is gain... scripture), I need to center myself each MORNING.

So this morning: Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength

Psalm 30:5
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Psalm 95:2
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Ecclesiastes 2:26
For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy:

Ecclesiastes 9:7
Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works

Isaiah 55:12
For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands

Habakkuk 3:18
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

WOW, I found lot's of scriptures with the word "Joy" in the word of God

My heart felt prayer today is to walk and live in the JOY of the Lord. I pray that as I do this My words, thoughts and actions will be full of JOY!
