Good choices

Yesterday I was VERY tired. I had to do this report and pull all these part numbers... lalalalala... but it was not the most exciting thing I've ever done, partnered with the fact that this weekend was the winter retreat, I was tired. Fuel (Jr. High) was last night. I was TIRED and really thristy (I drank 96 oz of water yesterday)! and... hungry when I got home. What was on the stove left over from Phyllis's dinner? Pizza.


So instead... right to the fridge for some string cheese and a couple turkey meatballs. Good choices.

Today I am still tired, drink my water, make good food choices, and even just 20 minutes on the treadmill tonight, I will sleep well.

It's about good choices. Katie spoke on Saturday about a sermon she had heard by Andy Stanley... The best question ever. (Book is ordered)

Is this a wise decision based on...

My past experiences
My current circumstances
My future hopes and dreams?

For the average person eating a piece of pizza is not that big of a deal. But for me, that would not be a wise choice. Knowing my past experiences, I have always struggled with eating (too much, wrong choices), I am overweight (current circumstances), and my future hopes and dreams is to be healthy and thin(ner). Isn't it funny that a simple question can make such a big difference.

I know it's silly to be proud of yourself because you didn't eat a piece of pizza, but I really do know it was the wisest choice. Think about the things we can really change in our hearts and our lives.

Proverbs 21:20 In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.
