doing this at the end of the day
Pro check-in BR finish quotes for T11, begin outline for analysis, start writing section log calories (diet) next day's list + Pro check-out
An important day done, and a relaxing night ahead. in between, I'm going to try to get a few things done:
terrific promise from the bible :
i have often felt at the beginning of temptation to escape or be impulsive that i had another option. Eg, checking in here.
another inspirational one to me :
i feel like this is what's happening to me. God sends ( or allows ) bad things, as a result of my procrastination / addictive personality that force me to conclude that i must depend on him, not myself.
remember, i ASKED God to do whatever was necessary to make me always depend on him. He has promised in his word that he will do this, so i know he will. And i can presume that my life right now is part of that process.
