Truth...Plain and Simple

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Going through a valley right now and thankful that I came across a few things that tossed a log or two onto my Spark-fire.

I have choices, I can choose to sit here talking about what "I need to" do, or I can choose to get up and do it.

I can choose to spend my time sitting and bemoaning difficulties and obstacles or I can choose to rise to the challenge of overcoming them to the best of my ablilities.

I can choose to listen to the lies Satan tells me about myself when I temporarily fail in moments of weakness, or I can claim the power of GOD's truth(Eph.1:19-20) over my life and keep seeking his strength to rise to the me I know I truly am and am intended to be. I guess the only thing TRULY standing in my way is not any difficulty or obstacle, it is simply the answer to the question...do I want this? The answer is YES, I want it...and I want it bad. I have determined that for me, difficulties and obstacles of any kind, even the unforeseen and uncontrollable, are simply...excuses. No matter what the circumstances or context, I ALWAYS have a choice to be better, to do better. Thank you Lord for stepping on my proverbial toes, no matter how much it smarts!!!

No excuses. I, without a doubt, want IT bad enough! emoticon

    what a fantastic and motivating blog! You ROCK girl! I know you can do this...or as the saying goes, you've GOT this! You have no idea how much you motivate me every time I visit your sparkpage. In fact I have decided that I may keep my ears open for a 5K run/walk sometime in my future. I know that's no half mary, but for me, that's huge!

    I'm right here by your side and we can encourage and motivate each other. Let's DO this damn thing already! emoticon emoticon

    What an awesome post!! This is so great! I love this attitude and it's something I need to work on. I have such a block over moving my spiritual side to my fitness side and I KNOW it's wrong. I KNOW that God is there for EVERY aspect of my life and that He wants me to be happy and healthy as much as I want it...it's just a matter of putting the thoughts in my brain into my heart. I needed this post...thanks!
