I confess these last couple of weeks have hit me hard physically which in turn affects me emotionally. I was feeling very poorly; couldn’t really put my finger on one thing to describe how I felt except to say that it wasn’t good.
I had the flu; my blood sugar was up; I wasn’t able to exercise; I wasn’t sleeping well; and wasn’t eating like I should. While all of these are probably good excuses not to take care of myself, I just hate feeling that way.
So, yesterday, I got back at it. I ate pretty good. I took a 3 mile walk in the glorious sunshine of my Father. I got over 9 hours of sleep last night. This morning my blood sugar was back where it should be! I feel pretty good today!
I need to remind myself to take it one day at a time. Just for today do the right things. Choose today to spend time with God, to eat right, to get some exercise, to get some good sleep. Feel better! It makes a difference!
The older I get, the harder it seems to recover from things. It takes more time. I used to pride myself on being a strong person physically. I was very athletic when I was younger. I think God has taught and is teaching me to let go of that pride and grab onto Him.
