6 Weeks - Andy Edition

We want to seek God with our whole hearts, bodies, and souls, so we're going to seek Him 6 weeks at a time.

Well, Praise God you have another day. I can see where the 2 job 60 hour weeks could leave you with no time.

Day 11 - November 15, 2007
A long day with nothing accomplished.

Prayer - None

Reading - Nothing.

Christlike - Nothing.

Soda and Candy - I had some candy yesterday and a couple of ginger ales.

I've fell off the track these last couple of days and I regret it very much. I'm going to be working at Gamestop again tonight, but I'm going to try and do my reading today before and after I go in.

I'm going to use tomorrow to catch up with everything.

Day 12 - November 16, 2007
Another long day with nothing accomplished.

Prayer - Once

Reading - Nothing.

Christlike - Nothing.

Soda and Candy - I had a couple of ginger ales yesterday but I think it's time to cut those out again as I'm not as sick as I was.

I didn't get to do any reading like I hoped that I would. Gamestop is getting busier by the day with the holidays drawing closer.

I'm going to do my reading this weekend.

Day 13 & 14 - November 17-18, 2007
A pretty good weekend. I didn't accomplish any of my goals though.

Prayer - Once on saturday and a bunch on sunday

Reading - Read over the Rick Warren book. Looked over Romans 1 again.

Christlike - Done.

Soda and Candy - I drank a bunch of soda this weekend. :( No candy though.

I think I'm going to change how I do my reading. I not only want to read the Bible, I want to study it. I'm not going to be doing my daily reading out of Romans anymore. I'm going to focus on the Rick Warren book, then Donald Miller, then Michael Franzese.

Days 19 through 21 - November 23 - 25, 2007
Aftermath of Turkey Day

Prayer - Once or twice a day. Amber and I have decided that we need to make a real effort to pray before each meal and to pray together.

Reading - None.

Christlike - Done

Soda and Candy - I drank soda. It was bad. I had candy and it was also bad.

I'm hoping now that all of this Thanksgiving madness is over I can get back on track. I've learned a lesson from the last few days.

Day 22 - November 26, 2007

Prayer - Twice!

Reading - None. (Didn't have the time.)

Christlike - None that I can think of

Soda and Candy - Two sodas :(

Amber and I talked a lot last night. We've been so busy over the last few weeks that I felt I didn't have time to catch my breath. She was getting upset with me because she noticed how burnt out on things that I was getting. We talked about making time for each other to have quiet time a little more each day and during the week because we aren't getting enough of it.

Soda is a tricky one. Once you are in the habit of drinking it sometimes becomes automatic to pick one up and start drinking it.

Are you trying to give up soda because to be heathly? Diet soda isn't exactly healthy for you, but it doesn't have any calories so at least if you slip uo you don't feel quite as bad. ;)

Yeah, for health and to save me from sugar! I realized that I had a bad addiction to sugar filled products. I (mostly) drink juices, coffee, and water now. If I'm going to get sugar out of something, at least I'll fool myself to think it's from a natural source.

Long but good day.

==============================

Day 27 - December 01, 2007

Prayer - Twice

Soda and Candy - One soda.

Work just really through me off for the day.

==============================

Day 28 - December 02, 2007

Christlike - Done

Soda and Candy - One soda. Made candy and ate it. Boo.

Didn't go to church and it really through me off. I always feel off-center when I don't go.

*****

Amber and I have been praying before most meals that we eat together. I'm trying to remember to do it on a personal meal basis too, but that's not so easily done. As far as this soda and candy thing goes, I think it's going to be really hard until after New Years.
