“……my PLAN is to get into shape….”

20131008_070334DEFINITION:  Now this is something we get really get our teeth into…. I started semi-serious weight lifting with a dear friend about 13 years ago, and have maintained a daily ritual, excepting when I had rotator-cuff surgery (caused by lifting).  My plan was to “get into shape.”  I wanted to give definition to my upper body; and I succeeded, for the most part.  And, anyone listening in would have to agree that words are a fancy of mine, and therefore definitions are, as well.  I am a man of great detail, and giving definition to my career, my marriage, planning, business, and my spiritual journey is of great import to me.  I like things refined, defined, and confined (isolated).  Some go through life with little organization or definition, and one day, down the line, will wake-up to the idea that life has passed them by, and they have no idea why.  Probably, they lacked definition; failing to
focus on the important matters of life, leaving everything up to chance.  I am not an advocate of chance; rather, I feel by defining everything into the confines of a plan, then I have more control over the outcome, and accept responsibility for the results (free-will).  Do you have a defining moment?  What will your children remember as to what defines you?  While God plays the most important part in this plan; He also expects us to give our lives definition.  In Isaiah 43:7, we are given the ultimate of definition. – Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”  Also, in Ephesians 1:11 – Also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will.  Thus says the Lord…   blessings.. cjlb.. 10/10/13
