A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father God, I humbly come to You giving You all that I am. I choose to keep my eyes on You and allow You to work in my heart and mind. I declare that I am free from competition today. In Jesus' Name. Amen. - Joel & Victoria Osteen

i did it, today was the first day i completed a full hour of yoga.
10 years ago, or so, i tried yoga, hated it.
it was sooooo boring. i fell asleep.
last week i ordered a yoga dvd, realizing how tight my hamstrings are was one of the main reasons and that it can help with conception. (oh yeah, aaron and i are working on creating a baby)
last week i did about 20 min, and it was doable. today, i completed the full hour. who knew that it would be hard - i made it, but not with out sweating and a struggle. i was not about to fall asleep, like i did years ago. well maybe at the end with the relaxing. among other areas that need work, breathing is a major one, i was concentrating on the pose in many instances that i forgot to breathe.
all in all it was great.
so regardless of if this leads to conception, i know my body will feel better for it.
who knew the "older|wiser" beth would enjoy yoga.
this is a good word:
Run Your Own Race
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…"
(Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJ).
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria It's easy to be tempted to go through life competing with everyone around us. When we see someone who's more talented, better looking or has more gifts, instead of running our race and being comfortable with who we are, oftentimes we feel inferior and think, "I've got to catch up to them." The problem with this unhealthy competition is that it's a never-ending cycle. There will always be someone ahead of us. But, it's a very freeing thing when you realize, "I'm not competing with you. I don't have to have as big a house as my neighbor to feel good about myself. I don't have to keep up with my co-worker. I don't have to be a certain size. No, I understand that I'm not in competition with my friend, my neighbor or my co-worker. Instead, I'm going to be the best me that I can possibly be." Friend, that's an attitude God can work with. When you focus on being who God made you to be, that's when you'll rise up higher and position yourself for every spiritual blessing He has in store for you!
have a great start to your week ... i am!
GRACE AND PEACE!
