that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!
And I will be productive! And do lots of writing. And singing. And praying. And reading! All things that I can do while I’m at work! Huzzah! Perhaps one day I will get paid to those things and won’t need to have a job as a caregiver. But God knows that I’ve needed the caregiving job! To make me less selfish. Golly. I’m so good at being selfish!
Slowly but surely, I pray and give up my will and ask the Lord to take away my selfishness. Less of me and more of He. Yep
So it’s Thursday. I’m a little worried that it’s going to go like how Tuesday went. I was going a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit crazy on Tuesday because of present company. But today, so far so good. He is tired which makes my life easier. He’s not jumping off the walls and talking up a storm like a freakin’ broken record. Praise God. Truly. I praise you Lord.
So today. As my friend shared with me recently, today I choose to not be a miserable cow. I will be a happy cow!
Current revelation: There’s more to life than weight loss!
Also, on my way to work today, the reason why I want to be thin finally dawned on me: I want people to worship me.
Ha ha ha.
I am so doggone selfish. It’s taaaaaaaayrrible.
But yeah if I’m being real with myself, that’s the honest truth! Haha
My definition of beauty: thin thin thin
So I want to attain this beauty
So people will look at me and not be able to look away
They’ll treat me so kindly
And won’t be able to get mad at me because I’m so pretty
I’ll be revered by all and loved by all.
So. Now that I’m aware of these thoughts I will captivate them and kill them.
#1 they aren’t true.
#2 I don’t want to waste my precious time believing lies anymore
Don’t waste your time believing lies.
Today, I choose not to waste my time believing lies.
Satan, you lose. Don’t you know that? Haha I win. God picked me for his team. I’m on da winning team!
This is what winner’s do: focus on the prize.
So what does the prize look like for me?
- Serving Jesus in whatever ways He calls me to
- Using my gifts to bring glory to him
- Focusing on the Truth about who God is and who I am
- Practicing the choice of rejoicing
Today I choose to be joyful! In all of the things that God has given me!
And continue to capture and kill any lies that come my way. Tempting lies to glorify myself. Tempting lies that put me on a pedestal and distract me from the only legitimate prize.
I don’t want to be the god of my own life. That never goes over well and it doesn’t bring me any true satisfaction. Living to serve God and others it the only thing that brings true joy. Praise God for showing me this! Praise God for doing a work within me that takes me off the pedestal and puts Him in his rightful place as Lord over my life!
I live to serve you Jesus!
