Yesterday I talked about Habits and Routines And shared how I was: "Going for a walk"! I framed this in the context Of CHANGE And challenged YOU... To consider what changes You might be avoiding... Or considering to do... More often than not.. When we do contemplate CHANGE Or actually decide to CHANGE We are faced with OPPOSITION In my case the opposition Came in the form of RAIN... After I finished writing And posting "My Story" of "Habits and Routines" I planned to go for a WALK... BUT... It was raining... So I took my brolly (Umbrella) Out of my car And went for a walk... Mindful of the fact that: "Skin doesn't LEAK"... How often do we avoid CHANGE Because it is uncomfortable...? Or it's inconvenient...? Or it's this or that...? Am I going to go for a walk Every day...? Probably NOT But it is my intention to... Rain, hail or shine Summer, autumn, winter, spring It's a CHANGE In my Habits and Routines And requires Discipline And determination But just before you feel Really bad... Thinking that "I can do this" But "You can't"... God has been telling me To do this... For the past couple of YEARS... And so finally NOW I am... Does that make me a BAD person or A GOOD person? That I disobeyed God...? You think what you like... I KNOW that God loves me to bits He is super pleased with me And delighted that I am Doing something... (You know - just by the way I am trying to write something EVERY DAY as well And we will see how that goes) Remember WE are NOT perfect But we believe in someone who IS... And His name is JESUS So STOP being so hard on yourself Live life in the fulness of God Do your best Or at least - give it a go And a final thought for today: "It's not about how many times You fall in life... Rather it's about how many times You get back up again"
