Body & Soul

Do you find yourself planning to do things & actually wanting to put it into action only to end up accomplishing another which was totally out of your plans?

Have you experience making a ‘to do list’, reminding yourself always about it only to end up setting it aside because something came up and you forgot about the priorities you have for that day?

Do you felt having the rush to do a project only to proscrastinate about it later?

I do for all of the above. When I was younger, I was full of energy. I was so agressive. I cannot stay in a corner, if I do, I might get sick. A few people close to me would sometimes remind me to slow down and not rush into things.

As I grow older, I learned to relax, it do me good but as they say, too much of everything is not good. I relaxed too much and now I find myself being lazy to attend to the things requiring my immediate attention.

During the start of this pandemic, it only got worse as the people around me and myself are having unstable emotions. My daily dose of GOD’s words by reading the Bible, praying, reading & listening online devotionals, watching online mass and ecumenical shows helped me a lot to get the motivation I badly needed to keep going.

I am still a work in progress that’s why I always need GOD’s mercy each day.

Galatians 5:16-17 ESV

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.”
