Coming to Terms

Do you ever fight against things you know you should do?

Sorry that’s a stupid question. Of course you do. We all do…right? So here I am again working toward a low carb diet as directed by my doctor. Sigh. I love carbs, sweets and potatoes. I’m a corn bread expert! How am I going to eat low carbs? But alas, this is something I know I need to do.

Same thing about writing. I fight what God wants me to do. Why? Because it’s not exactly what I want to do. Doesn’t that sound like a snotty brat?  I guess I never thought about it that way before. But that’s it. That’s what it means when we don’t follow God’s instruction.

I’m not talking about the Bible–though I’m not saying that’s not first. I’m talking about His instructions for our individual lives.

Wow. A lot to think about for a Monday. But the answer is pretty simple, right? Cut the carbs and follow God’s plan for my writing.

Should be easy enough, but everyday I struggle against a plan that has been established. And pray everyday for the conflict to ease. Or maybe that’s the point…

  1. Interesting thoughts this Monday. God does give us individual, personalized instructions for our lives. He also knows that sometimes we resist, I’m not sure why we do that either. Guess it’s part of maturing as a Christian. Praying this goes well for you, both with the writing and eating of carbs. Know it won’t be easy, but we both know God wouldn’t tell you this if it wasn’t important. Right now He’s wanting me to eventually give up TV. I have a deadline by the end of the year, but this is actually progressing nicely. I’m reading quite a bit more and my desire for TV has really diminished. Blessings, Susan

    1. Giving up TV would be hard, even with as little as I watch. But I know it can be done. I’m just amazed at myself that I keep fighting what I know I’ll end up doing. Or what I know I should be doing. Thanks for stopping by, Susan. Blessings to you and good luck with your goal. :)
