new day

Why is it so easy to lose our focus?

Every morning it’s a new day, and it’s like I forget what we are doing.

Lord, give me wisdom and understanding on how to keep my focus.

Eyes on You, what do You have for me today? What do You want to be accomplished?

God’s very nature is to be productive. He loves things that bear fruit.

That’s why He created things to reproduce. All plants, animals, and humans reproduce.

The ways He created the earth is truly remarkable.

He also put in us a desire to be productive.

Desires from God

 I have been feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, and like I don’t want to do this, but that is a lie.

If I look closer at these feelings, I know it’s something from the enemy because if everything was perfect and there was nothing to worry about, this is what I would want to be doing.

I want to be doing what God has for me; I want to be building relationships, learn new things, and help people become healthy; I want to do something that brings in a profit, I want to be able to give to every good work, and I want to understand and explain the Word of God.

I love reading, learning, helping, building, and creating.

These things are desires put into us by God.

The pressure put on us by the world makes us want to give up and sleep all day or watch a fake life on television.

says to cast your cares on Him because He cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7

{

Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.

Philippians 4:4

Sleepy

There are a few things I need to process. I tried sleeping  4 hours at night; this worked for about a week.

I had lots of energy and I was relishing the extra time it gave me, but after that initial week I wasn’t able to continue depriving myself of sleep. It became painful and my eyes wouldn’t function well.

So I went back to 8 hours a day, and I’m finding I remain in sleep mode all day until evening. In the night I feel more awake. So what is the solution here?

Lord I ask You for wisdom and understanding with this issue. I want to be awake, alert, and productive. I hate feeling sleepy unless it’s bedtime.

the plan

I will eat foods that give me energy, start a sourdough starter, and make my bread with Kamut.

I will take my Juice+ daily and apple cider vinegar to aid digestion.

I will begin to drink more water and get into bed at an earlier time to wind down.

If four hours aren’t enough, and eight feels like too much, then I will try for six.

Sugar and bread always made me sleepy in the past, and it would become a huge problem, so sleep and time became an idol to me.

I don’t want natural things to control my life.

With the Grace of God, I will take control of my circumstances and create a lifestyle of health and productivity.

I have Self-control, patience, and endurance in my spirit, and acknowledging what I have in Christ is what makes them effective.

So I declare what I have by the grace of God

{

 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. We have victory in Christ.

Philemon 1:6

{

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

Amen! God is good and worthy to be praised!

 

In His service,
