ERIN and SOPHIE added two more "baby steps" for you to try.
ERIN: The baby step I am sharing is that I have started to make small goals. The goals help me not do something I do way to much. And I reward my self at the end so that I want to complete the next goal.
SOPHIA: 1. not thinking to big 2.whenever i feel like talking back to my parents i just breath in and out 3.not thinking like ummm others are better than me i give them nice comments and then they give me even nicer ones!
THEN you gave us the PERFECT verses to read and write about in our Talking To God Journals:
ALYSSA: 1 Corinthians 6:19 which is "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;" and my Alyssanslation is, "Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit lives in us. So technically, we belong to God. We need to take care of ourselves." Think about it, if your body says 'I like healthy things' and you say 'I like te sweet stuff' that's basically saying, 'I want it my way.' Now, we can't help the temptations. We can help whether or not we give in
ASHER: My destination is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
It helps me to stop comparing myself to others and relax because I know God knows how I'll end up, because, really, there's nobody else I'd rather take the reins! Also, I really like John 21:25 as well: "Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." It's not a very well-known verse, but I like it because it shows Jesus was always helping others and what a great legacy he left behind for us to follow. –
JOSIE: One verse I'm using is Ephesians 4:26.
SOPHIE: Ephesians 4:26
SO ...(1) thank you for being there for each other and sharing what you know and
