Little by Little

"Line upon line, precept upon precept, hear a little there a little." I love this scripture...it reminds me that I do not have to have a "Do it all now or nothing!" attitude. It is the small habits, changes consistently done over time, that make the lasting difference.

In "Fit for Life" I am asked every day to commit to do something for that day... mine has been consistently, "I will...drink 6 large glasses of water today." For a moment this morning I thought, "Oh, I should do something different." But the above scripture came to mind. I realized that drinking that water has not become "second nature" in my lifestyle yet, so I need to keep proposing to do it until it is! Then I will move on to tackle something else........

In this same light. I cannot expect drastic change in my body overnight. It takes time and I need to have thoughtful-faithful patience while it is happening.

Hey Nicol!
That is so true! I've been trying to make sure the house is tidy before I go to bed at night. Ummm, I have a long way to go! I joined Curves a few weeks ago. I go 3x's a week for now. At some point, I'll probably just get up, go and not have to argue with myself about it!
I have a blog too. www.xanga.com/moritchey
