Yep! That image says it best. Imagine me yelling this out at YOU! I know it’s only been 4 days of this journey but I don’t know about you but I’m feeling pretty good about this forward progress. Today is the first tough day. Why? Well, you have made a decision to achieve the best out of your life and so far you’ve been doing that for three days! Congrats.
Today is Thursday so preparation for the weekend is coming… As I mentioned yesterday I’m going to keep it real. Friday through Sunday is about to be NO JOKE! Most of us the things we are subtracting from our life for some reason like to show up on the weekends or is it just me?
Either way let’s get a game plan in place to combat these cravings of sweets, drugs, alcohol, and sex. Yes they are all cravings remember we can overcome LUST.
Here are my suggestions:
CALL TO ACTION:
1. Get a game plan (Ex. If you are trying to stop drinking probably best not to go to a bar this weekend.)
2. Accountability partner (If you haven’t already get a close friend or family member to join you on this 30-Day Purity Pact)
3. Don’t think about. (If you are constantly trying to not do something you may just end up doing it.) We are establishing new habits so we have to begin to think about something else such as completing some goals for the remainder of the year, anything but the thing that’s holding you back.
One of my favorite scriptures I enjoy reading is Philippians 4:8 “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” This has kept me focused seriously not to think about things such as how sexy that guy would look with his shirt off or whatever thoughts that wouldn’t be praiseworthy. Trust me this really works. I’m a living testament:-) The image below describes what we will all feel and resemble within the next 26 days!!
