- When I don't want to wake up to read and spend time with the Lord, "how bad do I want ___" that time?
- When I want a sweet (or even my third apple of the day), "how bad do I want ___", to be a size smaller?
- When I don't want to go the gym, "how bad do I want ___" to run this morning?
- When I don't want to conquer the never decreasing pile of data entry on my desk, "how bad do I want ___" that pile to be filed?
The answer more often than not is yes, I do want to choose to spend time with the Lord, to be a (few) size smaller, to run, and to cross stuff off my to do list, etc. I can have a list of "should do" each day, but when I'm onboard for wanting to, it's just so much more enjoyable. That is probably a life lesson most have picked up on years ago, but one that I'm really enjoying walking in now.
