Journey to Change - no plan, no pill, no program - just better choices and determined commitment.
This journey is not just about weight release – although my weight did play a part in me taking this journey. It is about making the better choices for all aspects of my life.
This morning, as I set out on my meditation walk, I saw the Scripture we have posted in the front yard.
This comes from the King James Translation:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
I know that I have been caught up in my wicked ways – those ways that are anything other than the design God has for my life. I know this because I know that I am not where I am supposed to be which means I have been doing something other than what I am supposed to be doing.
But I am humbling myself. I am making fervent supplication and thankful prayer, I am seeking out God, and I AM turning from my wicked ways.
I know that God hears me and I know that God will heal my land – which is my body, my ministry, and my business.
Not because I deserve it more than anyone else but simply because He has promised this to ALL who make the choice.
My four steps to meet the change:
MOVING: 7:00 am – 1.5 mile walk to and from mailbox;
LEARNING: 7:00 am – 20 min meditation on purpose vision; 7:20 am - 10 min free thought on possibilities;
FUEL: 7:45 am – lemon/apple cider vinegar water (28 oz); 10:00 am – 3 small fried eggs (more baked because I used the Snackmaster) and one plain Lenders bagel. 1:30 pm 1 cup chicken dumpling soup, three slices deli chicken on Ritz cracker, 1 cup dry cereal (something sweet). 4:30 pm 2 boiled eggs, 1 cup Crispix cereal (everyone is away and I didn’t feel like cooking).
ENGAGEMENT: Hid in the house alone.
All and all – I got NOTHING done today. I had good intentions, but you know what they say about those. I do know I’ll get plenty of sleep tonight because I intend to beat the sun to sleep.
