Prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. (1st Peter 1:13)
I had a poster in my office that said, "Success Depends On The Effort." I want to find another one to add to the wall that says something like, "Success Depends On Being Prepared."
Lets look at how being prepared will determine your success on The Full 40.
This requires you to prepare your schedule so that you can go to bed early enough to get more than enough sleep. On this program we are not trying to get enough sleep. We are trying to get more than enough sleep.
Take the first 3 minutes and stretch out. Don't just start your workout. Pray and stretch. Ask God to help you to focus on getting a great workout.
How often do you need to go to the grocery store to be well stocked with Full 40 approved food.
Find ways to prepare your meals for the next day so that when you get up in the morning, you are taking good healthy meals with you and not wasting money and time eating out.
Just like exercise, you can get your Bible reading done or you can pray and ask The Holy Spirit to give you fresh revelation and understanding as you read. This is a game changer.
For some, going for a run is what blesses them. Others enjoy painting with water colors. I play guitar or go for a ride on my motorcycle. Preparing the place or the atmosphere of where you spend this time can be even more inspiring. Maybe it's listening to a certain set of songs. Changing the lighting. Whatever you need to do so that your wellness time is satisfying.
Before you go to sleep tonight prepare yourself for a great night of healing and rest.
Tomorrow is going to be a success.
Love, Pastor Max
