It was really interesting. My friend was talking to me about desire. We could be desiring to become something or someone, but desire doesn’t always keep us going in a direction. It almost takes perseverance and other qualities as well. Say you look at a parent who didn’t do a great job. Do you think they desired to be a good or decent parent? Did they make mistakes, have addictions? Did they fail? I mean, in some things, it is possible they did fail, but the idea is that just because you desire to “be a great parent”, it doesn’t mean it comes naturally, that you have gained all the abilities you need or maybe even the strength to do it all. What you need is something MORE than just desire. Because one time you could be totally gung ho about whatever it is you want to do and the next day be dead in the water. We really need God to help us become what we need to be and thank Him for His grace when we feel like we are falling.
What would really change me? I guess God working through me and in me, giving me the will and all that I need to make it possible. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try, and with God’s help, maybe I can really get myself back in good eating or health. I can’t say it will be easy, but maybe you can come on the journey with me. It would give me some great accountability.
God bless you my friends.
