My Personal Goals For The Rest Of The Summer:

God has been teaching me a lot about my life and everything that entails. There are three specific areas I feel like God is asking for submission in. I need to change my lifestyle in these three areas:

1) A. I need to change my eating habits to get handle on my hypoglycemia. In the past six months or more, I have been struggling with a low energy level and sickness. I know it is from my eating habits. When I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia, the doctor actually put me on a diet where you measure you foods. Being the stubborn person I am, I thought that I didn't need that diet. I thought that as long as I didn't skip meals, I would be okay. At first that was all it took. Now, I'm thinkin' I need to do more. It's not normal to be so low on energy at my age.
B. I have also come to the conclusion that I am allergic to MSG, a preservative found in many foods. I am not sure what to do about this. Almost every nice restaurant has MSG in it's food.

2) I have always been insecure. Here lately I have become more aware of how insecurities affects my life. So many times I let how I think people view many or lies I've believed about myself to hold me back. I have recognized that a lot in my teaching this summer. I'm tired of always worrying about what people think and I'm tired of telling myself I can't do something. I'm choosing to work on believing the promises about me in God' s Word. I want to believe in myself.

3) I have got to learn how to handle on Stress. I'm too young to be stressin'. I think a lot of the things I stress about come from my insecurities. Still, I have to learn to handle stress no matter where it comes from.

I'm not sure how I'm going to accomplish these goals, but I will. I will be one step at a time, praying the whole way!

Now, I'm asking you guys to pray too! I believe prayer breaks strong holds and these are some strong holds in my life! Thanks for everything!

In His Love,

Jennifer
