Thursday, June 7, marked the finish of my 100 day challenge to learn how to love God and myself better.
The challenge went so well! In the beginning I started off strong and gave you a 50 day update, but throughout the 100 days I took some key actions that I thought would help me love myself better and that’d help me love God more. Some of the actions that I took were:
- Dressed nice for work because when I look nice I tend to feel great.
- I began to address the areas of my life that need work (discipline, discernment, forgiveness, and responsibility.)
- I began to start my day off with prayer and Bible reading.
- I started to tithe.
Over time a shift has happened and I am going to be completely honest my love for myself is off balance with my love for God. In fact, I haven’t really been going to church regularly like I did before and so I know that I still have some work to do. I HAVE to put God first and friend, that’s easier said than done. It’s hard to wake up early and get in my Bible and pray. It’s hard to be obedient when I want to do what I want to do. However, what I do know is that love for myself and for God is a process and over time I will get better. I’ve already taken that first step and noticed that there was an issue. The next step that I am taking is to put in more of an effort.
In conclusion this challenge was great and I am challenging myself everyday to love God and to love myself. It ain’t easy, but anything worth having usually isn’t. Anything worth doing, using takes time and effort. And as long as I live I will continue making a conscience effort to love God and myself. I know that doing these two things will effect my relationships with others. It will make being obedient to the commandment to love my neighbor as myself come more naturally. I look forward to that the most.
Right now I am doing a 30 Day Challenge.
