Life sure throws us curve balls, doesn’t it? And, essentially, it is Papa “testing” us, or karma’s way of keeping us in check…oh…when these curve balls come at us in full force!
Questions come up, such as, “Why?” “What do I do?” “Will you please give me some answers, God?”
And, sometimes our questions go left unanswered for awhile, causing us to feel a little stir-crazy (if you will). 🙂
So, while our minds are playing tricks on us, were in limbo, wondering what is going to happen in the future, I think it’s best, then, to say to ourselves, “Hey, let me try to put a lot of attention on being the best I know I can be. And, one way to do that, and, is top priority, is to get strong…mentally and physically.”
I think that if we’re mentally and physically sound, we’ll feel focused, driven to achieve more goals and confident in our every day activities, with the desire to stay lit and light other people’s fires! 🙂
Here are a few things I have done in the past to help me get focused, re-energized, healthier and stronger…
- cleanse – seasonally is ideal; I have used Smooth Move chocolate tea (can be found at Wal-Mart; please get organic and be prepared for a lot of flushing ;P)
- exercise – whatever exercise that will get you strong and feeling like you pushed yourself; let’s stay consistent! start with 3x/week and build, perhaps, over time; a walk/run is good, but, be sure to push yourself – work up that heart rate! 🙂
- listen to good music! – this is huge for me! I take advantage of times that I’m not driving with my kids and turn up the music and sing really loud. Fun, isn’t it?! 😛
The peace our Savior gives us as we turn to Him “transcends all understanding“…”God, thank you for clarity (even though it sometimes takes forever to get it ;)). Love you!”
Have a wonderful night,
Isaiah 26:1 – 9 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
“Lord, help me to trust in You so that I may live in peace.”

Excellent advice! Especially the dose of great music!
