Wk 9, Day 1 (Mon, 16-Sep-2013)

. . No comments:
  • I'm in Nehemiah 4.  Nehemiah encounters a lot of ridicule from 2 of the governors (Sanballat, Tobiah).  I am guessing that if Nehemiah is successful in rebuilding the walls, this would threaten the governors of their territories.  Nehemiah was very task oriented and a doer.  He had a heart, a huge heart for God's people, for God.  He was also very dedicated and God was on his side.  People worked with all their heart in V. 6.  But, there were threats against Nehemiah and his people, but they were not blind to it, rather they prayed and took action, posting guards day and night to meet this threat.  How does that speak to me?  God is going to rebuild the walls of my heart, my relationships (particularly in the marriage & parenting aspects), and financially.  These are the areas that have the most broken walls and it would take so many miracles.  
  • To guard against threats of the enemy, I am spending not fervent daily time in worship, study of God's Word, praise to God, warfare prayer, seeking the presence of God all day long, seeking the Holy Spirit to guide my footsteps, my attitude, everything I do.  I know these are things that all Christians should do, but whether one does it is another thing or not.  I believe that I am entering into the next phase of God's plans for my life and it takes that incredible, intense faith that unwaivers, but is determinedly focused on Him, Jesus Christ.  I am not God and I am not to be "the Holy Spirit" for anyone, particularly my husband.  God calls me to love Him, to truly love him as in I Corinthians 13.  
  • Been eating a lot of junk lately, so today I'm going to attempt to do better with eating and less junk.
  • Thankful for downloading Mileage Keeper on my husband's iPhone.  It's easier to keep track there of our mileage than how I have been doing.  
  • Since keeping our car in the shade, moving it when the shade goes away to another shady spot, has greatly increased the mileage on our car, since we park outside.  We had been getting 12-14 mpg all summer, but when we started parking in the shade, we are now 15.3-16.7 mpg.  That's a huge difference.  Anyway, we are really happy with this since we tend to drive a lot and have to fill up our tank often.  Thankful for my husband.

Notes:  Good workout.  I thought before the workout I might get sick doing the situps and twists as I have had some balance issue here where these would make me want to puke, but I was fine today.  I basically stared at one spot ahead of me and kept focus on that.  Maybe some of the EFT I have done in the past for injury recovery is helping me, too?  I hate situps and anything of that ilk.

This is my longest workout of Zuzka's and wasn't sure I could get through it, but praise God I did.  If you want to work out with her and see the full exercises, you'll have to subscribe to her ZGym.
