Daily I am more amazed at how the Master Keys lessons are so closely aligned with what our church has been teaching in a series on creating successful habits for life — this week one of the key verses is II Corinthians 10:5, which includes “taking every thought captive.” Isn’t that exactly what the Master Key exercise asks of us – “to… completely destroy these negative and destructive thoughts; because they are the seed which is constantly germinating into discordant conditions of every conceivable kind and description.” Somewhere I remember reading that if something gives you pleasure, your subby works hard to keep you happy — and a light bulb went off! It has always been so satisfying to me to pay my bills each month (I’ve been a bookkeeper for years, so it’s what I’m paid to do for others) — could it be that good old subby is keeping me in debt to keep me happy? H-m-m-m-m… I have chosen not to think about a bill payment this month – put them all on auto-pay – so there, subby!
As I have been so enjoying MasterKey Michael Barnes’ daily blogs, my first thought was to do a little blog daily myself. I am learning so much about “I” each day, and then forget what I wanted to share by the time I sit down to complete my blog at the last minute. Seems like the faster I go, the behinder I get! So here I am again, and still haven’t gotten the “add 5 MKMMA members to Twitter daily”, or commented on the last two – or is it three – blogs from Week 3 because they weren’t up yet the one time I looked. I am really working hard at keeping the “overwhelmed” subby at bay – I refuse to let it tempt me! I just need to work harder at understanding how Twitter works, what happens when I “like” someone’s blog comment, etc. All you young’uns make it look so easy! I think one key is spending more time in the Alliances Area asking for help!
Does anyone else find following these blogs so interesting that time just disappears? I want to comment on each one because they are all so good — reflecting what I feel, or giving me great new ideas to expand my own thoughts. I’m looking forward to meeting five new members, but with mixed emotions; I don’t want to lose track of my current new friends, but how can I manage the time to enjoy new ones, too?
Speaking of new ones, today a new distraction was added to my life – a joyful one — my niece just presented me with my first grand-nephew to keep his year-and-a-half old big sister company. Since he is the first boy born into our extended family for 40+ years, any chance he may grown up a little spoiled?? That’s all for now – off to comment on the rest of Week 3 blogs.
