Rejoice always

1 Thessalonians 5:16

Reflection on Day #4

It came and went quickly. I thought that I would need to dig in so much deeper to get through the day, but I actually held on well. I felt satisfied which is different. Afternoon cravings are now curtailed with a bowl of raw almonds and mixed nuts rather than chocolate peanut butter cups or some other form of craving killer. I can honestly say that I gave yesterday a full effort without having to force myself. That’s what I call personal growth, even if it is only in one area of my life. That’s what it is and I will take it with full gratitude.

Focus on Faith

I rally on my time reflecting and meditating on the Scriptures during this detox period. God has been stirring up some old ideas from the past that I dropped by the wayside in lieu of other work and He has also been granting me some new insights into carrying out my ministry work despite the COVID-19 conditions. I am earnestly working on some of the items immediately and eagerly anticipating how to get to other pieces of the puzzle, but as they say God is not finished with me yet. There is more that I am sure that He has to reveal to me in our time of communion.

I am certain of this, though. I am a firm believer that a greater percentage of God’ grace has been spent on sparing me of the ramifications of my own foolishness. Yet, as I ponder further upon how much god has to offer, I am seeking the place and space for when and where God rewards my faithfulness.

Focus on Fuel

This time has allowed me to discover some new dishes and to return to eating more raw vegetables beyond a salad. I usually eat cauliflower and broccoli raw and uncooked. No ranch dressing or cheese, please. I just eat the florets. I have even been able to nibble on a handful of raw Brussels sprouts, but I do have to admit that those have me drinking a lot of water to get them down. At the end of the day, I would rank the broccoli at the top of my got to raw fuel list with baby carrots.

Focus on Fitness

Today I need some of that vitamin D that only direct sunlight can provide. Working remotely from home has its benefits, but some of he drawbacks include that vortex where you find yourself locked into work mode and without proper break times. I knew this going into this challenge, so I was careful to schedule my fitness breaks. I like how world class runner Steven Gomez shows us how to adjust our schedules. However, I am at the point where I need to add alarms to my smartphone as reminders to take my fitness breaks. My fitness breaks during work a simply mini moments that serve as power breaks where I will rise up and walk around, stretch or even take a break from the screen and step outside. Today I will definitely find me a spot in the sun for a moment and make the most of it. These breaks are key to a continued awareness of my physical restoration and recharging during my work schedule.

An unwavering dedication to God’s way is the mark of a true steward
