What can I say about Joyce Meyer that you do not already know? Her transparency and down to earth teaching is the best. This past weekend she spoke about bitterness. It was entitled "Burnt but not Bitter!" I came away with a new perspective about a few things. I truly felt in my heart that I harbored no bitterness towards anyone, but I now know this is not the case. Right now ... as I type this ... I am not for sure where I go from here considering this new revelation, but I know God and I have some work ahead of us. I am just so blessed I love the Lord so much that I am able to hear His Spirit speak to me about such things. I do not want to live in denial. I have spent so much of my time in denial. Now I just want to be my best to glorify Him. I will keep you posted on our progress. It should be interesting. Keep me in prayer.
As I am sure this will come as no big surprise to you, I blew my get-healthy plan this weekend. My friend and I had a 'junk food night', and believe me, I am paying for it. I woke this morning feeling bloated, fingers so puffy I could not put my rings on, dragging as if I had not slept at all, and just miserable. It was definitely not worth it. Then, to pour salt into the wound, I brought some of the horrible stuff home so I used the excuse that I could not do any more harm than I had already done to eat more of it today. YUK!!! What in the world is wrong with me? But ...
I am back on track tomorrow. I have been in the kitchen tonight preparing my meals for the week and disposing of the junk. I feel simply terrible ... mentally, spiritually, physically! Why do we do this to ourselves? Do we really think something will be different? The junk food does not change and neither does the effects it has on your body. Lesson learned again! Back on track tomorrow! Praise God for His longsuffering. He must get so tired of having to reach down and pick me back up, but I am so very thankful that He does.
I am calling it a night. I hope you are geared up for the week ahead. Keep me in prayer, and I am always keeping you in prayer!
Love to you all!
