Time to make changes?
Welcome back to my blog for this second week of April. So I managed to get one post written last week – well, two, with one here and one on my other blog, where I wrote about the first Motivational Monday in April.
My goal this week: Write at least 3 posts, as I ease back into the blogging schedule.
Here is some encouragement for today:
“If it seems you have been struggling forever with negative things in your life, don’t despair. There is a time and season for everything, and bad things ultimately give way to better things. Even the good things going on in your life may not stay exactly the same, because things are always changing.
Sometimes changes are exciting…and sometimes they are difficult. But Jesus never changes–and as long as you keep your eyes on Him, you will make it through the changes in your life and continue growing.
Be careful not to get too attached to people, places, positions, or things, but always be free to move with the Spirit. Let go of what lies behind and press on to what lies ahead (see Philippians 3:13-14).
Reach toward the new horizon God has for you. You will be glad you did.”
–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”
Yeah, changes can be challenging. These first few months of 2019 have been challenging, dealing with sickness in February, and then a couple new health diagnoses in March that have required making some significant changes in my lifestyle. I have had to change my diet to lower sugar, carbohydrate, and sodium intake, and get more consistent exercise to lose weight.
So far, so good over the past few weeks. I have lost a few pounds by changing my diet and exercising daily. I am also feeling a bit healthier and more energetic. I am also standing most of the day with my “stand up” desk! My hubby added a shelf over the top of my treadmill, so I have my laptop there to do my work, blogging, and other online tasks.
So what are YOUR thoughts?
How do you deal with changes?
Have you made any recent changes to your overall lifestyle?
