Ponderings is a thought for the day. It is an inspired word given from our heavenly Creator to leave us with something to ponder.
“Do not be conformed (fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs), to this world, but be changed by the renewal of your mind (by its new ideals and its new attitudes), so that you may prove for yourselves what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in His sight for you.” -Romans 12:2 ( AMP)
Leaving the gym on the same day, at the same time, and continuing my daily routine in the exact same way, I envisioned myself as a hamster, running on it’s wheel. After saying the exact same “How was your day?” to my girls as I picked them up from school I realized I needed a change. Just something small, anything, to see if I could get off this proverbial hamster wheel. I decided to turn off my computer that afternoon and asked my daughter to play zumba on our wii. We had so much fun, that we decided to make a new routine, that now thinking about it ended up taking away my snack cravings (that I was trying to look up solutions on the computer), and gave us some bonding time together.
So, no matter how small the change, let’s get off of life’s treadmill and onto the pavement of new sights.
