Today while playing a game that I like to play I got tired of getting beaten by my opponent. I normally play quickly...its a word game and I can easily look at the letters in my hand and find a word to play but I was getting beaten repeatedly. I knew in order for me to win I could not make a move in haste without carefully choosing my play or carefully choosing my words. I took my time, thought out my moves and won the next two games. These wins came after a losing streak; it made me think about how important it is to have a strategy and how important it is to consistantly stick to that strategy. God has given me many strategies...I always start off good and then something derails me...its normally the kind of attack that causes me to become emotionally unstable. I have made up my mind that the things that God has placed on my heart to do (the strategies He has given) I will do consistently...if something touches my emotions and causes turmoil...I will continue...tissues and sneakers if need be! I won't stop.
