An Undivided Heart

Friday, October 04, 2013

Trying again - had this written up, then it disappeared.

Made to Crave (from Ch 9)quote today...
"An undivided heart. That's what my whole journey in conquering my cravings was about. When it comes to my body. I can't live with divided loyalties. I can either be loyal to honoring the Lord with my body or loyal to my cravings, desires, and many excuses for not exercising."

This was very applicable today. This morning, I hit the snooze and didn't really want to get up and exercise. But I did and I am glad I did. I also decided mid-morning that I was going to start doing the 15 min Oxycise routine each day too. It is something that I can do while the kids are playing. Then this afternoon, while I was ironing I marched in place. I want to really step up my daily exercise routine. I have plenty of DVD's and I want to sit down and make out a plan - that is a goal for this weekend.

Some other quotes ....
--"I knew my weight issue didn't have anything to do with me being spiritual or worldly. If I was honest with myself, my issue was plain and simple -- a lack of self-control."
--"The more I made running [*any exercise] about spiritual growth and discipline, the less I focused on the weight. Each lost pound was not a quest to get skinny but evidence of obedience to God."

    It is all about obedience, isn't it? Not that we should make that spoonful of ice cream a need for guilt, but to have joy in obeying God with our bodies.

    Which chronological bible are you reading? I'm doing the same... with a 2 year plan. We're traveling so much the the 2 year plan makes it easier to catch up on my reading when I get sidetracked. I learn something new every time I read through the Bible.

    Today was rough. Drove for five hours, then looked at houses for five hours, and the only exercise was tromping around in and out the houses. Looks like I might have a nice sewing room if we get the house we are putting a bid on. We're both very tired today.

    You are doing really great! Still keeping up the good accountability.
