    I love this! Resisting temptation is my biggest problem. My goal is weight loss, and temptation to food is always there!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi Madison, I can relate to the weight loss, it is a constant battle of mine, but when I do set goals for myself the temptation becomes less no matter the issue. Sister, I will be praying for you and myself as we face the scales together. Being a healthier version of ourselves is always a great thing! Blessings to you!

  2. Sheila, thank you so much for sharing these things. I really need to be reminded over and over and over. I actually wrote these down in my calendar so I can remember. I know I have the capacity to be diligent, but so often I let distractions impede my progress. I appreciate your words and they were just what I need to hear today. – Amy

      Hi Amy!,
      I didn’t get to comment on your latest post, but I will! It is all about putting on the Armor of God isn’t it? Last night and I read your post I thought that is the ultimate goal, putting on the Armor of God daily. This is how we will meet every goal when we are diligent to His Word! I get distracted too, it is a battle, but with God our victory is won! Blessings sweet friend! So thankful we have connected!

    This is so true and I could definitely use these pointers as reminder when goal-setting this year. The last one is most important – you need to be accountable for your own actions so that any effort you’re doing now is helping to achieve your goal.
