My Spiritual Journey

So the James Experiment was a bit difficult for me last week.   The experiment was to speak less, no grumbling, no multi-tasking, speaking only what is beneficial to others, and giving positive encouragement.  It sounded easy enough until last week came around.  Its been a long time since I’ve walked through an entire week as frustrated and discouraged as I was last week.  I failed in this experiment big time!  Just ask my hubby if you don’t believe me =)

So I’m trying again this week.  I wasn’t ready for all the attacks last week, but I’m ready this week.   So far so good.  Hopefully I won’t fail 2 weeks in a row!!!  I’m loving the James Experiment for this week as well.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.  Just click here.

Goals:

  • Just started read Twelve Ordinary Men by John MacArthur.  It seems good so far.  Hopefully I’ll be through a couple chapters by next week.
  • So rather than this 2 days a week get up at 5am, I think I’m going for 4 days a week.  It seems like if I don’t make it to the gym in the morning, I don’t make it at all.  So I’m getting up at 5am to spend some time with Jesus and then I’ll head to the gym or outside to run at 6am.   On Friday and Saturday, Brent and I try to go to the gym together and work out so I won’t go early on those days.  I’m pretty excited about running though.  We’ve been running about 3 miles so far and this week we’re going up to 4.  I’m not a great runner so this is WAY exciting for me.
  • Still reading in Mark…usually later in the day because I’ve been doing the James Experiment in the morning.
  • Trying to sit down and do a Prayer of Examen halfway through the day.  I’ve been a bit stressed about money lately so sitting down in the middle of the day with Jesus has been so incredibly helpful.

I think that’s about it for this week.  Enjoy your week and the beautiful sun outside!  As soon as the kids wake up, we’re off to play in the sprinklers!!  I love summer =)

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
