Today's Tools for Me

 

One of my exercises was to list things I needed to do to improve my life. Well my answers may not have been what they were looking for. 

 

See I agree that the physical and mental as well as emotional is all important. I am working on eating correctly and exercising and viewing things in a different way. 

 

But there is another aspect to my life that is so very important to me and needs just as much attention. That is my spiritual life. My walk with God. Am I praying enough daily or reading my Bible as I should? Am I open to when He has put me in someones path to be a blessing to them? 

 

To me the spiritual factor is more important than the other factors. Sad to say I have been concentrating so much on getting healthier in this body that I have allowed my Spiritual to slack off. I still pray daily but not as fervently (sp?) as before. I used to read the Word of God daily and now sad to say it is hit and miss. 

 

So for me to be completely healthy and to be truly whole I need to work on my spiritual side as well. Monday I am starting a new daily Bible reading program leading up to the day of Pentecost.

Great goals

I think it is great that you have spiritual goals. I would encourage you to continue to do so.  I couldn't agree more with the spirtual component to life.  It is a rich experience for me everyday and has been for quite some time. I don't know where I would be with out my faith and I don't have to worry about it - it's part of my life.

 

What I like best about Tools is that it allows members to seek their own way on this issue (politics as well).  But give the tools to make our own goals in these areas, if we choose. Beliefs of that kind are personal, yet important.  Tools allows for freedom here but support a process for you to develop and maintain your own goals.

 

The other areas that you mention - mental, emotional, physical - are in alignment with my beliefs. Renewing my mind,  not being double minded, thinking on what is good and right, seeking truth, listening to the inner voice - I do this in prayer and meditation, seeking counsel from others we trust....I see a blending that has worked for me quite well.

 

In terms of providing ansers that "they" are looking for in the tools exercises - those are answers just for you!  You are the person that decides what is important to you - in any area of your life.  Feel free to make spiritual goals and use the tools provided here to help you achieve them.
