Have you ever tried to move forward on a personal goal and found that you were met with a lot of resistance? An example would be, you have just decided to take better care of your health and to eat better. You are excited and motivated! Then you enter your work place and someone offers you a donut. Better yet, Susie has a Birthday and shares some cake. If you are unarmed with a response you eat the donut and then later you have some cake. Before long you decide I’ll start tomorrow.

 Resistance comes in many forms. Last week I decided that I would walk everyday outdoors and just enjoy what God gives us naturally, Mother Nature. Then it rained all week! But I had a contingency plan. I would do a home video or go to the gym if the weather was not on my side.

Resistance can be someone or something that is opposing what you know that you need for yourself right now. I encourage you to embrace resistance because the more we push past the opposition the stronger we become. Resistance is a tool that allows us to know we are on the right track.

What resistance have you met recently? What action will you take when others or things stand in your way? Do you have a contingency plan for lifes distractions?

We all have days that look impossible. Everything seems to be going wrong. We think to ourselves that we will never accomplish our goals and receives the desires of our heart. We wonder what have we done to deserve this lot. Maybe we are cursed or an old hex is on our head. We complain to whom ever will listen. We go through our day grumbling about what should and could have been.

These are the moments when we must dig deep in our soul and become thankful for all that is around us. If you have no home, than be thankful for your apartment. If you are living with someone else than be thankful for the space they have loaned you. Be thankful for a Bed. Be thankful for the grass and the flowers. Be thankful for your body being in motion. Be thankful that you can speak. Be thankful for a new day. Be thankful for your parents. Be thankful for your children. Be thankful to be married. Be thankful to be single. Be thankful if you are fat and be thankful if you are skinny.

Just be Thankful for what ever you have right now because in the quiet moments of pure gratitude Blessings abound. God wants to bless a thankful child. The more you are thankful for where you are right now the more God is able to move in your life.
