How am I doing?

The last few weeks have been so up and down. I hate it when I have down days but I love those up days.

Yesterday was an up day. I woke up early, not on purpose mind you, but I decided to get some things done. I started the dishwasher, which I should mention my wonderful husband had unloaded and loaded the night before. I turned off the alarm (so it wouldn't go off when Justin left) and made Justin's lunch. Then I even did my Bible study! I have been doing pretty good at making sure I do my Bible study before the kids wake up, but for some reason this day was different. I am so glad I chose to do it. It was really a great study and I feel like it helped me all through out the day to make smart choices.

Then there are days like today. Ugh. Very much a down kind of day. It is like I just woke up with a huge cover of tiredness and depression on me. I had no desire to get out of bed and found myself mad when Owen woke up crying about 6:45. I didn't get Justin's lunch made or turn off the alarm for him (he did turn it off himself). I didn't do my Bible study either. I just laid in bed until a little after 7, when I decided Owen had cried long enough and wasn't going to go back to sleep. This feeling just kept over me the entire day. It effected the choices I made too. I didn't make good choices, let's just leave it at that.

Do you think Satan can just sense when we are going to stomp on his plan? I think so. I think that because of my good day on Monday that he could tell something good was going to happen. The bad part is that I just let him stomp on me instead.

I am going to pray that tomorrow is a better day and that I won't let Satan stomp on me like he did today. Will you pray with me?

Choosing sin...

Do you choose to sin?

Sounds like a deep question, right? Well I got to thinking this week about how much I actually choose to sin. I mean so often there are situations that God will just straight up say "don't do that" and yet I do it anyways. It sounds so bad, because it is bad.

I want to be able to say that I at least try to make the right decisions, but this last week, I didn't even try. Several times I ate things that I knew God was telling me not to eat. I gained 1/4 of a pound this week. Hmm, do you think that if I had actually listened to what God was telling me, that just maybe I would have lost? We will never know, but I do know this: What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31, NIV)

It's a new day...

I am feeling good today! Well minus my body being sore due to a big fall I had yesterday after church, but other than that, I am feeling good!

I decided to take it as a complement that Satan is trying so hard to bring me down. You know what, I am not going to let him succeed! I had my Bible study this morning and have been righting down my calories, even the piece of birthday cake I had with my lunch.

Take that Satan! You have no power over me! Jesus already has the victory!
