~ Doing things your way is sometimes the best way. I have no fear, because God is on my side. I wonder why it took me over 40 years to realize that not everyone is on my side. It doesn’t matter is they are your blood or someone whom you call a friend. Then again the title family and friend can be dropped down to an associate. They may know your name, but they don’t know you.
~ I am trying to move forward, but I keep going back to “no fear,” and trying to remember where I read it (without going online to find it). Okay, I went to the back of my (NIV New International Version) Bible to the concordance, but I knew I read it. The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 NIV
I got up with a plan and I am following through to keeping my word. This time it’s to myself (to be a better me) and I’m not letting other voices in my thoughts. Yesterday as I was playing a game online, an app popped up, and I surprised myself by reading it. I really do not like drinking water, but I know its good for me. Anyway, this app sends a reminder to drink 10oz of water throughout the day. I actually drank half a bottle of water (16oz) with meds and no I normally just drank enough to get the pill down.
That was the old me. I have already walked 30mins and drank 20 ounces of water before 7:30am. I was told where I should walk, when I should go out, how much water I drank, and even what I should or shouldn’t be eating. I just stopped talking and tune them out, because I am free to be me.
I am walking within the comforts of my apartment, because I know my health better than anyone. A person with a bad back (a temporary set back, because by Jesus’s blood I know I am healed) one has to put in the work to improve themselves and I Will be safe doing it.
One can improve themselves in so many ways, but first they have to have a dream and the strength to follow through. One has to understand some may say they want you to move forward, and although you are hearing the right words, but if you listen closely they’re words have no truth in them.
I am going to move forward and no one will stop me from my goal. I have told young adults to find a dream and work hard to set it free, because in order for you to move forward you cannot stay where you are at and no one is going to do it for you. Have faith in yourself as He has given you all you need to be a better you..
