It’s the number one reason why I seem to always let my health take a back sit. It’s a vicious cycle. Stress leads me to poor eating, poor fitness, and poor sleep – all of which cause me more stress. Depression is also mixed-up in the stress. I pray to stay rooted in Christ but I often fail. That is what disappoints me most.
I struggle with discerning if my lack of will is due to my flesh or actual ailments. Regardless of the cause, when I fail to eat properly and maintain a basic level of fitness, I fail to give a “Yes” to Him.
I strive to glorify God with all that I have been blessed with, including my body. I desire to maintain optimal health (that He wills me to have) to better fulfill my vocation.
I offer my failures to Him and humbly ask for the grace to move forward.
I will put my recent failures behind me and remain on Mod 3 this week.
May the Good Lord keep me in the race.
GO ALL OUT – ALL FOR!
I have NOT ARRIVED.
I am far from the finish line.
But I am on CHRIST’S TEAM.
His love ignites me.
…His power fuels me.
His mission compels me.
I AM COMMITTED to Christ
and to this race.
