It’s February, the excitement of the new year has passed. How is your heart?
Are you discouraged by the lack of sticking with your goals? Have you found you need to tweak those goals in order to achieve them daily?
I want to ask you to look deep into your heart. How do you feel?
I personally have lost momentum. I know what I should be doing, however, I continue to lean towards a sedentary lifestyle and make food choices that aren’t the best.
I feel like Paul.
It’s my heart. What is going on in my heart? What can I do in my heart to help me achieve my physical goals? When my heart is parched, my bones feel dry, I feel spent. That’s when I get discouraged and defeated and begin to do those “very things I hate.”
But thankfully, like Paul, I can learn to live in the spirit (Romans 8). And while my goals this year are specifically geared towards my physical wellness and being, my heart has to abide in the spirit and I have to look at my whole being working together. I cannot achieve any physical goals, emotional goals, spiritual goals, or mental goals until my heart is in the right place.
This has become one of my favorite songs to listen to while trying to set my heart right.
Do you want to abide in Him? Do you want to be something new? How is your heart health?
