Week Five - Healthy Goal

We are already midway through week five of the new year. Can you believe it? In my last post I promised I would write a bit more about my focus for this week! To be honest, I've been spending the first few days of the week tossing around ideas. Should I focus on eating more veggies? Photobucket Drinking more herbal tea? Letting go of sugar? Cooking with organic ingredients? Or what about a home organization goal...cleaning out cupboards? Donating or selling things we don't use? Or should I set a spiritual goal this week? Better prayer time? Scripture memory? Ah so many choices...

To be honest, the thing that most needs my immediate attention is Scripture memory. So, since there are just three days left in the week, I decided to keep my goal very simple. I chose two of my favorite verses from the book of James. The goal? Memorize them by Sunday. 

Lots of changes are taking place around here and though they're exciting changes, they are also terrifying and require large amounts of prayer and faith. I found these two verses to be wonderfully encouraging....

James 5:13 "Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise."

and...

James 5:16 "Therefore confess your sins to each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."

Our God is so incredibly faithful and trustworthy!

  4. Those are great verses to choose. I hope you're able to accomplish your goal and can add them to your memory by Sunday!

    PS. Your picture of vegetables makes me want to go out, buy a tomato, and bite into it like an apple! Too bad it's past midnight and the stores have all closed. :(
