Habits that change your life.

imageOne of the things  we talked abt durning class on Wednesday is implementing one simple change starting this week. It’s all the little changes that add up to big ones and healthy living. They say it takes 30 days to create a habit. So while some ppl can do several changes at a time and do fine, others can’t and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. So what does that look like? Well you might not drink any water at all right now, they say you should drink half your body weight of water every day. Well that might seem overwhelming, so start by drinking 2 cups and just increase over time. Or you might eat a lot of fast food and processes food, so you might start by cutting back to a certain day where you eat out. Or you might not exercise at all just start 15 mins 3 -4 times a week, it might not sound like a lot but what your doing is being consistent and hey at least you’ve started and your heading in the right direction and that’s what matters, right? Don’t be so hard on yourself, we are all different. What we are looking for is lasting changes not temporary changes. So what if it takes you 6 months to a year to change 4-6 healthy habits……WOW! Look what you have accomplished. You are NOT where you were. Consistency is the name of the game. Never give up! When you fall off the wagon, extend grace to yourself and keep moving forward. You are not a failure because you failed at something, only when you don’t keep going forward. Every time you fail you are getting closer to succeeding and overcoming. Like the song says “Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again.” No shame, no guilt…..JUST GRACE!image

His Word say “Put off the old you and put on the new you!!” You were created in God’s image. God calls you beautiful, holy and righteous (not that you do everything right but it means you are in RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD)

Embrace where your at and if you need to analyze what went wrong and make a plan to avoid those mistakes again. YOU CAN DO THIS!! I believe in you and God does too! He calls YOU OVERCOMER precious one!! Keep moving forward❤️

Ephesians 4:22-24 To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Song “Moving Forward by Israel Houghton

“I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead
Here to declare to You my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving, moving forward”
