3 Steps to Victory

It's the middle of January, and the corpses of New Year's resolution are piling up like plague victims in the Dark Ages.

Anyone else struggling with a habit that seem insurmountable? Or hiding the struggle?

Here's our opportunity to break the chains, pull out of our ruts and ACHIEVE VICTORY.

Sound impossible?
With God all things are possible. Matt 19:26

 Let's join together, right here, right now and defeat those things that seem overwhelming or unachievable.
In the past they may have given us a bigger smackdown than a folding chair on a WWE wrestler, but
each new minute equals a new start.

Here's a 3-Step roadmap to the great state of Victory.

1) Identify the issue. What's holding us back? 

2) Create an action plan with daily, weekly and/or monthly steps.

3) Share on my Facebook page. Post encouragements. Share strategies to get through moments of weakness.
Don't want to specify what the struggle is? No problem. Just call it the "Thing."

As in, "The Thing's kicking my tail tonight." And we'd respond with encouragements like, "Can you replace it with something else? Like take a walk or round up wild mustangs?"

In my last post I promised to admit what I'm struggling with. Here goes:

 3) Unhealthy weight gain. I feel like a Blimpo-matic 3000 Fast Food Processor. I binged on so much junk food that getting dressed is like stuffing 20 pounds of sausage into a 5 pound casing.

2) I've slacked off writing the entire month of December. Pretty hard to finish my novel when I'm reading other people's instead. (Dang you, authors Deeanne Gist and Angela Hunt!)

1) Worst, I let my relationship with God slide. He's my best friend, and I barely made time for him.

But no more!
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57

To show I'm serious I posted my action plan on my Facebook page.

Let's link together and start fresh with God's help.
Take 10 seconds right now to go to the page and type "I'm in!" 

There'll be no folding chair smack-downs. I promise.
