Self~Control - God is the One to help me to have self~control
Monday, a new day, a new week which led to lots of thinking last night.
Isn't that what most people do ~ think about Monday as a new day, time for new beginnings.
So I got on the scale ~ UGH did not like what I saw, my weight is crawling the opposite direction of what I want. My eating is once again out of control...thoughts of "get with the program" "get off my fat a** and get moving again" "make good choices" you know...the litany continues on and on.
And now it is Tuesday, first day of our work week. The dang house alarm went off at 6:00, then lots of yelling...am sure the new boy in our house doesn't know not to come out of the bedroom before 6:30 am. Knowing my alarm was set for 7:00 am I rolled over and went back to sleep. Got up when my alarm went off even though I had been hearing lots of noise from the boys for the past half hour. Made my way to the kitchen to make some coffee and then got dressed for the day. Coffee was ready and so headed to my little corner to meet with God.
I began praying, telling God once again I had failed at spending time with Him daily. You don't want to know how long it has been since I sat in the quietness of my corner and just talked and read God's Word. And how unhappy I am with myself regarding my weight, my eating habits and feeling like such a loser.
And then I opened Our Daily Bread for my devotion of the day.
And once again I sat humbled as God met me right where I am this morning.
Read: Galatians 5:16–25
