So… Day Two…not so easy.
Don’t let the image fool you, the headache was the highlight of today. It set in around 11am and has been somewhat with me all day. Is this normal? Yes. The headache is my body saying, “what the heck, man?!” And I apologize body, but you will be better off because of this.
As you could imagine, the headache was not the only problem of the day. Doubt set in, and quite quickly. Thoughts as to why I am doing this and how stupid I must look to everyone begin to loom around me. People ask me why I am doing this, and all I can say is that it is what God has asked me to do. I can’t really justify any further. I trust God will reveal more over time.
1 Timothy 4:6-10 when paraphrased says this:
You’ve been raised on the Message of the faith and have followed sound teaching. Now pass on this counsel to the followers of Jesus there, and you’ll be a good servant of Jesus. Stay clear of silly stories that get dressed up as religion. Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart. This is why we’ve thrown ourselves into this venture so totally. We’re banking on the living God, Savior of all men and women, especially believers.
This is what I believe and this is why I will complete these 40 days.
