Day 30 – “That’s my girl”10/08/2009
“There goes my daughter. She’s mine. Do you see her? There she goes do you see what she’s doing? Oh there she goes again. That’s my girl. I’m proud of her and I love her. There she goes again do you see her? She’s mine.”
An elder at my church shared these words with me in reference to what the Lord declares to be true of me. For me to walk in this truth at times is difficult for me to accept. This truth is laid out more times than I can count in His word but when I’m undisciplined it is difficult for me to accept. I have struggled and hidden this part of my life even though it is the most obvious thing about me. I teach about goal setting all day long with my students and yet my most obvious goal is the one thing I have yet to be able to achieve. It is hypocritical. So if I want a life of integrity I must be disciplined in the little things. I have pride when I know that I have made good choices throughout the day. Going the extra mile and not phoning it in sets an example but most of all it makes you proud. Rising above laziness and following through with a plan will make you that much stronger so you won’t be pushed around.
So as the Biggest Loser song asks,
“What have you done today to make you feel proud?”
