How badly do you want it?

As I sat through Sunday School and Relief Society today, this phrase kept running through my mind.

How badly do you want it?

From Isaiah, we learn besides Christ there is no other Saviour. He is it. Without Him, we are nothing. So if I want something badly, I better ask Him to be an integral part in the journey. I need to consult Him. Turn to Him in moments of weakness. Make Him my personal trainer. I ask again, 

How badly do you want it?

Intentions v. Actions

After dinner, I was sitting with a few calories to spare, pleased with my day. Nine o'clock hit and my tummy began growling. Ten o'clock hit and I gave in. Eight hundred calories later, I feel awful, mad, and completely embarrassed and disappointed with myself. 
So the point of this post, 
be intentional.
Do things because you mean to.

You may have the best intentions, 
but they don't mean a thing.
Act purposefully.
Eat purposefully.

Our body is our book of life

"In a real though figurative sense, the book of life is the record of the acts of men as such record is written in their own bodies. … 

That is, EVERY thought, word, and deed has an [effect] on the human body; 

all these leave their marks, marks which can be read by Him who is Eternal as easily as the words in a book can be read” 
(Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. [1966], 97).
