Have you made your resolutions or do you bother?
I began this blog almost a year ago, resolving in 2012 to bring glory to God through my spirit, mind and body. The Lord has brought me far from the woman I was a year ago, but I remain in the refiners fire and will likely be there till I see His face! In the meantime, I have some more specific goals for 2013. After this post has been up a few days, I will file it in the pages tab above for my own quick reference. These are goals I have to assist in a healthier spirit, mind and body for the glory of God. I also have a few general, to-do-list-type of goals.
Goals for 2013:
Spirit- *Daily study and quiet time (this is SOOO important, and while my intentions are good, my follow through is usually rushed or never gotten around to :/)
*Stay away from the 3 G's! I'll explain what these are later in the post.
Mind- *Get back into memorizing Bible verses. I used to do this a lot as a teenager. The verses remain in my mind, but their location does not.
*Take all thoughts captive for Christ. Our minds and spirits are so interwoven. What and how we think determines our moods and vice versa. You know what I mean?
*Choose to smile! I'll post on this later.
*MIND my own business! I generally do this, except for when I know someone is struggling with something I feel the need to offer my two cents without being asked. Bad Marcia.
* Avoid the 3 G's and those who practice them! The 3 G's are: gripe, grumble and gossip! The Lord has really brought to my attention lately that I
Body- * More water!
* Daily stretching
* Go to doctor (There is a doctor in the nearest "big city" that will run a complete blood work assessment to see what my body is deficient in and then offer natural solutions. I've said it before, I REFUSE to be on prescription meds if I can help it.)
*Stick to a regular sleep routine. We all know how important proper rest is. It is crucial for someone with fibromyalgia. I'm not in college anymore (long time out!), I can't be pulling anymore late nighters!
*Repeat: Smile! Laugh. It does a body good. First verse memorization:
A cheerful heart makes good medicine. Proverbs 17:22
I look forward to what may come in the next year. Be on the lookout for my next installment in the Mom Lookin' Up Series, The Importance of Bible Prophecy.
What are some of your new year goals?
