18 inches

"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:7-9

God has really been impressing upon me this week that out of my heart...those things that I truly believe...comes what I need to live an effective life for Christ.  If I believe in my heart, soul, mind and strength that God is God and in control of all things, then my life will reflect that in my thoughts, words, and actions.  If I truly believe prayer changes things, then I will pray more.  If I truly believe that God has called me to do something, then I will get it done to the best of my ability.  If I believe power lies in Him, then I will run to him to gain my strength.   
Nothing that I believe or don't believe will change who God is.  He is who He says He is.  What will change is how I think and I love and I step out of my comfort zone into the unknown.  God has done His part and continues to do His part faithfully.  It's time to believe He is Lord with my whole heart, so that my life reflects more of His love, faithfulness and power. 
Those 18 inches between my head and my heart make all the difference...

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
