Made to Crave Start Up Feelings

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

I am so nervous--heart beating fast, squirrelly tummy, etc., because I just signed up for the online Made to Crave Bible study. I know God has been leading me in this direction, but I haven't been obedient yet. Some ladies in my church have recently completed the study and begun an exercise program, which really is turning into a ministry, and I really want to be a part of whatever God is doing in my church. I have not been obedient because I really don't want to change. I want my circumstances to change instead, and I think by this point I should admit that God's answer to that request is, "not right now." He's telling me what I tell my kids, "You mind me first". So, here I go. I may not do all the stuff on SparkPeople right at the beginning because I'm focusing on the Bible study. I'm a few days behind (they started on Sunday), so I have some catching up to do. I'm hoping the nervousness I feel will remind me to pray and to rely on God. I'm usually very good at starting programs all gung-ho and then wimping out, so I'm going to pray every day for God to be here beside me and to make this process glorifying to Him.

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! I've seen Made To Crave (MTC) groups and/or group projects on SP before and even read the entries often on one of them, but I haven't done one fully. I think it's a good idea. Actually, this week is very busy (holiday, sick kid, parents visiting, son's birthday this weekend), and I signed up for the study a little late, so I haven't been able to do any of it, yet. Don't worry, that's not going to stop me. I'm just going to be a few days behind for a little while. I would love to have discussions with any of you who want to join in, whether you've started yet or not. We can get ourselves in sync somehow. Any suggestions?

    I love the study! I was fortunate enough to be able to get into one of the small groups, which has been a tremendous support system and encouragement. Maybe we should start a MTC group on SP?! You can do this! Phil 4:13 emoticon

    I may have to look into the online study sometime. Not right now though! That would throw me over the edge. LOL I loved the book and it is still on my Kindle. emoticon

    It is hard to change. We like our comfort zone and don't want to move out of it. I know you can do this. God will be with you if you let Him.

    I started re reading the book this year.I am reading it slowly (one chapeter a day) this time. I am really learning a lot about myself. I am excited to hear how the online study works.

    Are you watching all the videos, too? Just wondered if they were helpful--do you watch before or after you read?

    I'm doing the online Bible study too. I like how she (Melissa Taylor) breaks it down into easy, little tasks for every day so it's pretty easy to stay on track. I'll be praying for you and me both, that we are energized by the study, that we have the fortitude to go through it until the end. emoticon emoticon emoticon
