Day #7 Reflection

My day was filled with contemplations and considerations. What I did learn was that I have consumed way more vegetables than fruit and like I said before not enough water. My best practices need to be for what’s best for me and my health. That is a surefire reminder to me that my health is in my hands, as in it is my responsibility to manage my health as a steward of the body that the Lord has given me. And in 50 years of living, I can openly admit that I have not always been a wise steward over this body.

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

proverbs 16:9 (Nkjv)

Focus on Faith

Faith might be required for you to keep going as much as it is required for you to get things started. It may not be the same measure of faith. It might not be the same level of faith. But it is faith that is required. When you feel like letting go or even letting loose like going off, let the words of this text redirect you and recharge you: but the Lord directs his steps. Your plans can blow up and fall asunder, but the Lord has a plan that supersedes all of our planning.

Focus on Fuel

Today I am snacking on berries and raw almonds. I haven’t dove enough into those raspberries and blueberries, not even them blackberries. I used to have to pick the berries that I wanted for Grandma M.A. to make her cobbler. I would reach in between them twisted thorny vines to pick those fat blackberries without getting pricked. Today all I have to do is reach in the fridge, so I guess I will accept the easy route and eat a handful of them for their antioxidant bounty.

Focus on Fitness

Maybe it will be a walk on the streets or a just a few indoor exercises on the bedroom floor, but I plan to raise my heartrate today. There is plenty around to raise my blood pressure, but I am duty bound to fight off such things as much as I can today. I want to break a sweat a few times today doing some strenuous activity and preparing my body for ongoing workouts during this break.

Prayer is humbling work.

Money matters.

Money matters more than we tend to think.

Bread is made for laughter, and wine gladdens life, and money answers everything. Ecclesiastes 10:19 (ESV)

Money matters.

Money matters a lot.

When we look at money the wrong way, we tend to lose focus. Focus on faith, not finances. Just understand that the finances are important, but they are not to be our focus. Focus on faith, but keep your eye on the money.

Jesus said a lot about money, too.

No one can serve two masters.

Go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.

If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
