Time to take charge of my health

I so wanted to sit and finish my pruning blogs but I need lots of time and contemplation, and as a working mum, that doesnt happen often.

I was thinking the other day about " how much do i blog for myself vs how much do I blog for others". And I think the latter is higher. I want to change that. I want to put my thoughts down for me. If someone reads it then that is cool. Its a tricky thing to do.

Here goes......
I get sick alot due to a low immune system, but Lord, I notice that I remind myself a lot that I catch every bug that passes me and I remind myself that I have a low immune system.
I want to change this. Lord, you nailed death to the cross, and yet I live as a defeatest in the area of my health.

So, I am going to write a sticky note on the inside of my bathroom cabinet.  Every day I will look at this and remind myself at least 25 times that "My immune system is getting stronger and stronger and stronger" I will also remind myself that I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me.
I believe in the power of positive thinking, but I dont put it into practise. I once read a book on the power of positive thinking, so perhaps I need to dig it out and remind myself that I dont need to live as a woe me..poor sick Karen......

I know that health issues consume our lives at times. Our boys seem to get everything that passes through school and church.... it is a reminder that we need to rely completely on Christ to get us through the constant barrage... I pray that the Lord would heal your body and strengthen your immune system.. Hugs!! Rhonda

It is interesting to see how our thoughts towards blogging can ebb and flow.
