Praying For A Miracle Day 1

I could really use a miracle!  Today is day two in whatever this thing that I'm doing is going to end up being.  I'm hopeful, as I always am, that THIS time it is going to take and my life with be transformed.  And by "it", I'm talking about overcoming my addiction to eating and living a healthy life!  Maybe now is the time!?!  I mean, when I was a smoker, I remember trying over and over again to quit and it just wouldn't take..... until it did.  And when it did, it was effortless and it was for good.  So I have experience with big, successful changes in my life.  Why couldn't the stars be aligned this time?

Well, I believe they have.  And I'm not ashamed to say that I'm tapping into WHATEVER I have in my arsenal to take it on.  My Body For Life workout schedule, a daily Bible devotional, becoming addicted to self-help books (already there really) and taking advantage of a newly retired husband who can prepare meals (I always wanted a live-in chef)..... stars aligning???  Well, to help tip the scales even more, I'm also employing the help of Mr. Hal Elrod with his masterpiece, The Miracle Morning.  I've read it before and attempted to do it, but fell off the wagon (seeing a pattern?) and quit.  I am SO ready to quit quitting!!!  Time to exorcize a really bad spirit and start exercising a really good one.  Today is Miracle Morning Day 1:

S- 5 minutes to sit in silence and reach for God.
A- I am successful and capable with divine wisdom that surpasses understanding.  I am highly favored by God receiving blessings I can barely contain.
V- What does being successful and capable look like?  How am I interacting with those around me with divine wisdom, favor and blessings from God?
E- 20 minutes of Elliptical today
R- Psalm 37:18-19 The Lord knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine they have abundance.
S- Praying For A Miracle Day 1

I am going to spend the day increasing my productivity.  I am going to focus on connecting to God.  I know that in Him is my success.
