    LYSU 84 Reset and Rest

    LYSU 84 Reset and Rest

    So this week I talk about resting and reset.
    I want to encourage you to find a way to rest and reset.
    That may mean that we need to look at our goals reevaluate them or even re-defined them.
    Rest and reset can provide a course correction and this is what shipping and airliners do to make sure they are on the correct course and based on the correct data and observation they adjust to course to their destination.
    Because life tends to get us a bit off course once in a while.

    I think Rest can look different depending on the person, what you’re going through, so let’s not look at the normal idea of resting as not doing nothing BUT could include that.
    Thank about what are some ways you can destress or reevaluate where you’re at?
    and I also think we need to work this in our daily lives, either weekly or daily spend time in "REST"
    Below are some ideas that might help you rest and reset
    Suggestions to resting
    Take a break from Social media
    Getting away alone
    Do something fun
    Get enough sleep
    Spend time with Family & Friends
    Read a book
    Find a way to de-stress

    The Compounding Effect

    The Compounding Effect

    This week I talk about the compounding effect of making the right decision and how we make our life better not by big leaps but by daily choices
    John 16:33 NIV “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
    “A daily routine built on good habits and disciplines separates the most successful among us from everyone else. A routine is exceptionally powerful.”
    ― Darren Hardy

    Last week

    This week I explain what was going on and what I learned.
    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” Ephesians 6:10-13 (NIV)

    How to Overcome Anything

    How to Overcome Anything

    1 Start your day right
    That means spending time with God Psalm 5:3 "In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
        in the morning I lay my requests before you
        and wait expectantly."
    2 When a problem arises and they will ask what does this makes possible?
    3 Be in a state of growing and learning
    4 Be determined to overcome to get the victory
    5 Be in gratitude find something to be thankful for every day. When you start feeling bad or get the upset think of something to be grateful for.
    6 Focus on what is going right or where you are going not on your past and not on your mistakes.
    Remember your thoughts are important but it is also the actions that we take that are important.
