Grateful for Extra Chances

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Today I am glad for extra chances. I've blown my 2nd, 3rd etc... chances. Thank the Lord for new mercies every day.
This past 2 - 3 weeks has been torture. I have totally blown my food intake, exercise, water intake and mostly my attitude. BLOWN UP! But there are those extra chances for me to make new choices. Right now I'm lamenting my failures of the past weeks and the scale's report on this. Sooo, now I'm gonna put on my big girl panties and just do it. As Sabbath is a day of rest, today I will fast correctly and get myself ready for the coming week. Maybe that was the failure all along - improper preparation. Today I will have time alone with God and prepare spiritually before anything else. Seeking the Kingdom 1st - then all else will be added...

    If the Lord's mercies were not new every morning, I don't know how I'd make it through my life. Don't beat yourself up over the last few weeks. Pick yourself up, renew your commitment and keep on moving ahead.

    Isaiah 40:28-31

    Be blessed!
