Psalm 37:23 tells us the Lord delights in every detail of our lives. Every. detail. He desires to direct us in our point of struggle, delighting in our first small steps toward change.
Have you chosen your “ONE thing” yet (see Baby Steps Part One http://wp.me/p4RztF-v3)? Did you ask yourself the questions?
As mentioned, my ONE thing is my diet goal: 80% of my eating will consist of unprocessed, organic “real” food. Pondering the questions, I sensed God’s leading in choosing this goal at this time. Firstly because I have a sweet tooth or a chocolate tooth. I also grapple with eating on the go and mindless eating when life gets crazy or when I’m emotionally and physically bankrupt. I cycle between healthy and intentional to careless and unhealthy eating.
Because of chronic health issues, I believe cleaning up my diet will impact my vitality. When I am strong, it positively affects those I love and gives me energy for relationships, work and ministry.
Discouragement often holds me back and steals my success. YET I know that I know, I need to do what I can to live the best I can every day the Lord grants me.
Once we answer our questions and determine our ONE thing, we take steps toward change.
