Teaching, fasting, and really not sleeping.

Saturday, September 27, 2008

This week has been a blur. I was teaching most of the week on on of my favorite subjects: Praise and Worship. It was incredible and I had a blast. Two days were mission days of fasting and I managed to do it, but was blown away at how tired I was. I would get home after teaching and just crash until we ate our first meal.

I didn't lose any weight this week, but I know that fasting is not really for the purpose of losing weight, but for getting spiritually fit. I didn't work out like usual because of the fast.

Yesterday, I took 60 blood pressures of the Bible College students right after I finished teaching. It was a good thing, because there were a few with high blood pressure that I told needed to really follow up with a doctor.

I start teaching the book of Galatians next week, so I will be busy again, but I love the book of Galatians, so I will find it fun.

Sleeping was not at it's zenith this week. Teaching stressed out my legs. I had lots of pain during the night which totally messed up my sleep. I slept 8 hours last night, so I am very happy.

My goals this week are:
1. To work out at least 4 days.
2. To go back to eating for frequently. Smaller meals- but more frequently.
3. To not let the stress of the finances of the mission get to me. That is the hardest one. I am the accountant. I am not responsible to get the money to come in. I take to much of that stress personally and then I eat more than I should, which is why I keep fluctuating on my scale by 2 pounds.

I will cast all my burdens on the Lord and I will give all my SP friends a great big hug today.
God bless you,

    "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1Pe 5:7

    I've been meditating on this verse today. There is so much to worry about. May we throw it all to Him.

    I will continue to pray for you Mary as I have been doing. I will especially pray that you can sleep during this next week of teaching. That you will not have the pain in your legs like you've had this week. It's great seeing you on SparkPeople today!!
