Breaking the plateau

I’m up praying. Great things on the horizon. My heart is open to receive what God has for my life. I am giving God the 1st part of my morning, then I will hit the workout hard today. I have hit a plateau, but I will switch things up to break through. Wait, that will preach, as they say in certain church cultures. LOL In other words, there is spiritual application to the previous statement. When I have hit a plateau and the scale seems to not move for awhile, instead of getting upset and frustrated, I have learned to simply change something. Our bodies have a away of adjusting to the new level of intensity of our workouts. It takes less effort to accomplish the activity, thus burning less calories. If we simply change a part of our workout (perhaps add more minutes, change the type of workout, adjust your caloric intake or change the intensity) then our bodies will begin to respond again. I have found this to be true in my spiritual life. We can become complacent and reach a place of stagnation in our walk with God. All we have to do is make a simple change and we can see an increase in our growth. That’s why I love fasts. It helps us to do something a little different as we seek God with more intensity and priority, thus helping us to shift from our usual routine. And, this can help us to break through a spiritual plateau. Or, maybe the change can be reading scriptures you don’t normally read, or praying just 5 minutes longer than usual. Whatever you do, just change it up by adding more of something to increase your spiritual fitness and you will begin to grow again.┬áRomans 12:11 (MSG) Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.

Have a wonderful, blessed, prosperous, faith-filled and peaceful day. Love ya. Da’dra
