"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." 2 Corinthians 10:4 (NIV)
One dimension that I would like to add to THE SPARK (not to take away from it but to add). That dimension would be the great power we can have in Christ...for the pulling down of strongholds.
That is what happens when I am trying to reach my goals in small baby steps and there is a holiday, birthday, celebration of a baby, wedding, retirement, new job, you name it and the party includes first and foremost rich foods, pizza, candy, cakes & ice cream, drinks of all sorts....and in order to get through these times I need the power of the most high.
My Monday was going along just fine: breakfast , lunch , dinner , waters , declutter !!! Now I was feeling SOoooooo tired, it was late and still I hadn't excercised....I was dreading it.....I could feel the tiredness just getting to me and thought about LS and guess who won out. Not my goal....a stronghold. No it was the tiredness and my pillow that won.
It is time for me to go to the Divine Power Jesus. So, I confess that I missed my opportunity to keep my commitment to the goal I chose for myself. Maybe tomorrow with His power I can recoupe and readjust my plan....goals after all are a snapshot of what we 'hope' to have as a standard.
Tomorrow will be a new day!!!
Tomorrow, a time to be positive and not let it rain on my parade.
