What healthy boundaries do you need to set in your life that are a struggle?
Why is setting boundaries hard for so many? What is it about our culture or our nature that makes this a challenge for so many?
Eating healthier food. My husband is the better cook and most of what he makes has so many calories. There are steaks, butter, rich mushrooms, filling pancakes, creams, baked goods, etc. The working out isn't so much of a problem. I just like to do it in the comfort of my own home. But those calories really add up.
Yum! I can see what that could be a challenge! Yes, they do add up quickly, don't they! So do you try to eat smaller portions so you can still enjoy the delicious foods he cooks? Thanks for sharing!!!
It has crossed my mind but that would take a lot of strength.
None. It took several years of obtaining sufficient information how to reach God given limit 120 years in good physical condition and healthy body. I studied my body what need to be eliminated and what included in my healthy diet. Lord help me! And He did. A strict discipline - takes a couple of years,lesser amount- takes 999 hours, colorful drinks, out... You're getting an idea. For us who do have the Father willing to help us in every situation , it's a piece of cake to enjoy life and live righteously. Count on some conflict in your " circle of friends, however the other will be in agreement with you. Believe me, it's easy if you're seriously considering yourself to be " the light of the world ." ( you know who said it: " you are" ) . Perhaps the problem is that we want to be Christians as all kind o Christians instead of the 'DISCIPL-es .'
I commend you. No easy task. You must be on the verge of sainthood. God speed!!
I'm not the only one "special"; the One who called us , you must be 'holy'-in every part of your life ,HE said " for IM holy." 1 Pet 1: 15.16. Don't we have faith to live by? ( Rom. 1:17 ) Either we do, or we don't. We do serve the Faithful YHWH .
Purity. I practice it and pray for it and keep on trying by His grace. With spiritual guidance, I am constanlty looking at my inner discipline, cleanliness and how best I can transform my lower nature. Here I look at greed, lust, anger, attachment and ego inside myself. I feel that through prayer and my Lord's grace that they can be conquered. The fact that I may be in a better position than I was 30 years ago when I started, comforts me, but I am still ever vigilante.
I seek His love and inner blessings: forgiveness, mercy, love. patience and tolerance ... and I also offer gratitude constantly for taking me through this day.
My Lord is not concerned about my excellence. He only asks me for my presence. He descends from above to treasure my heart and not my house. O Lord, do make me a better servant of Your Will.
