Now that is a title that hits below the belt literally!
Chapter 9 had a statement that really hit home – “Halfhearted Efforts produce Mediocre Results. I’ll give you a moment to repeat that.
Okay, does that not hit below the belt. I have been studying this Bible Study and I thought doing good, however, after reading this it made me wonder. Wonder a lot. It made me wonder how much effort was I really putting into this? A little or a lot? How much time was I really reading and memorizing scripture to use during those cravings and hart times? How much time was I dwelling on eating things I know are not healthy? How much time was I moving or exercising?
I have been doing it halfhearted so my results have not been great. I have been making my health condition, Rheumatoid Arthritis, a stumbling block to my exercising. But it does not have to be. There are things I can do to keep moving and exercise. I just have to realize it and do it. I have been letting TV, Facebook, Games interfere with time I could be studying and memorizing scripture. I have to stop thinking about the bad foods and why I think I deserve them and remember they are not healthy.
I have decided to give it 100% and I mean 100%, not 99.9%.
My focus is honoring the Lord with by body and not my crazy cravings. The Lord knows I have RA, but he also knows that is not an excuse. OVERRULED! (If you are in the study you understand this.) I’m trying to remember that what I do is not only helping me physically but spiritually and mentally.
Next week is going to be even harder than this week, BUT I know I will make it. I must give it my all and the results will happen.
