Galatians 3:3 NIV says “Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?” That’s the scripture that came to mind as I was beating myself up for not following through on my commitment to exercise. My day literally consisted of waking up late, working, sleeping, working and then sleeping again. I got nothing else done at all. My accountability partner suggested that my fatigue could be improved if I move my body! Go figure, that’s what I wanted to do but I allowed my fatigue to get the best of me. I didn’t take my schedule to the Lord in the morning and the rest of my day was lost. That’s where I failed and I am so glad that I learned that lesson quickly.
Today is the only day that we are promised. We are never promised tomorrow in scripture. We must make the best of today. That is what I intend to do today. I will take my schedule to the Lord and ask Him to help me plan my day. I am pretty confident that my day will look much better because I have done this before. It lasted 3 days. I did not get back to it and yet the Lord had me working on planning and balance for a while this month. Somewhere along the journey I said “I got this Lord” and everything went the wrong direction. Well thank God for grace. I have repented and I am ready to move forward again. This is a lifetime journey and there will always be bumps in the road but the Lord is gracious and steers me back when I get off track. Hallelujah!
