Have you ever decided to create a new habit? You know a good one like I am going to eat more vegetables. I am going to relax more. I am going to exercise more. I am going to spend more time sitting quietly before the Lord waiting for him to speak to me.
Change is hard. But sometime it is necessary. They say it takes two weeks for a habit to become a habit. Actually it takes two weeks to get the idea in to your head that this is a good habit to have.
Increasing our vegetables is getting easier. It takes baby steps to reach the lofty goal of 6 full servings of vegetables per day. A full serving, according to clinical dietician who is coaching me is 1 cup. Ever try to eat a cup of brussel sprouts. But it is helping, I am losing weight and lowering my numbers.
Recently I realized that somewhere along the time, I stopped sitting quietly before the Lord. I used to get up early just to spend that time. Today I tried 10 minutes that was what I could manage. JUST 10 MINUTES. It is okay, God knows that I am His. It is a work in progress. Hopefully this time, I won’t let the habit slide. After all communicating with God is the most important habit to cultivate.
