21 Days

So, they say it takes 21 days to form a habit. I must be one of those very stubborn people because I don't seem to form habits quickly. You can see from my lack of posts that it does not come easily for me to form good habits. I've taken to working out again during my lunch hour at work. I have struggled with my weight for many, many years and it just doesn't get easier. Seems to me that's the way it is in my spiritual life as well. I struggle with the way I want to be vs the way I am. I want to be transformed. Paul says that we need to take up our cross daily. It is a daily action, not a once and done. God's mercies are new every morning. Each morning is a brand new start. And yet there is still a need for the past. I keep a small note book with my Bible and the devotional I am using at the time and I write prayer requests, things God lays on my heart,etc. I pray through these very morning and often times throughout the day. I can look back and see so many answered prayers in that little book! Often you don't realize how far you've come unless you look back to where you have been. On a side note, they showed the video of the struggle of 2013 for Greg and I, at church this past Sunday. Somehow, our story resonated with some folks at the church and that is so encouraging to me. I can look back over the past two years and see God's hand in everything! Until next time...
