Can I be honest with you all? I would like to believe mental battles are my specialty. Every morning I go through all my thoughts and try to tackle them. “Ok, this thing didn’t feel right – I’m going to go through all the possible reasons why this happened.”
Most of the time, I stop and think ”you know this is just your ego talking. Come on we know God fights every battle.” A few minutes later, I come back to earth. Eventually, I choose to love instead of hypotheticals and realize none of the negative stuff matters.
Like me, you may have to remind yourself to rely on God more than yourself. Good intentions can lead to peace and appreciation for success. There is nothing wrong with wanting more – but we have to remember, our father comes first.
We can’t allow our ego to always be the star. Craving power can cause a spiritual addiction which leads to failure. How many times do we hear about famous people having it all only to lose everything? It’s so important not to make ourselves idols.
Let’s continue to pray to remain humble while having the grace of God accompany us. Without him, what would it mean?
12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:12

Hey everyone! Here’s another break from fruits of the spirit. It’s hard sticking to this plan but I’m committed to finishing. I’m not sure what I will be doing next, but I know God will put something in my heart to share with you all.
February has been an excellent month. I dedicated this time to exercising and eating right. Almost every night – I wake up out of my sleep craving something I shouldn’t have. I have to fight to eat something healthy or go back to sleep.
When I tell you temptation is a serious thing – we all can say this is true. I believe eventually I will grow out of this bad habit of wanting a juicy burger with fries at 3 am.
God wants all of us to live a healthy productive life. Taking care of our bodies and minds are so important. The thrill of instant stimulation can be a reward at first – but it’s toxic and can hinder us from a great life.
Let’s work together to fight the temptations of the fridge and challenges of this world.
And do not bring us into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
