MSMAKEOVER is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I am making myself over....mind, body, and spirit...
I am a work in progress to be a better Woman than I was yesterday. I am dedicated and determined to be fabulous, sexy, amazing, and breathtaking.
I walk in FAITH, not fear.
Teach Me Self Control...
Your Word teaches that when we truly experience Your
saving grace, we find the power to say no to wasteful
passions and to live self-controlled and productive lives.
But how much I need Your help to overcome my laziness
and self-deception. Teach me and change me, Lord. I
want to become more self-controlled. Today it seems
that self-indulgence is the drug of choice on every corner.
But I don't want my appetites to dominate my life!
You promise to live powerfully through me so that I might
love You and serve others. Now show me how to build the walls of self-control and restraint around my life. I relinquish my rebellious will, which robs me of the self-control You want me to choose.
Thank You for helping me today.
