Getting Aligned in 2009

Where will the road take me in this new year?
On the brink of a new most favorite word picture comes to mind. I have now adopted "Getting Aligned in 2009" as my New Year's Slogan. But...back to the word picture. Get the image of being a car or vehicle. There are four tires...and this is where the image gets important. Each tire represents a part of life. Tire One will represent being the Spiritual Tire...the Second Tire - Mental Tire...Third = Emotional Tire and finally the Fourth Tire - Physcial Tire. Imagine going down the road of life with a flat tire or a tire being overly filled. The ride would be very uncomfortable, gas mileage...not good, and the destination may not be reached.
I desire to get aligned in these areas in the upcoming new year. here is where I have to be vulnerable and tell all about my ride! physcial tire is flat...and my emotional tire is so pumped up it is close to a blow out! It will take being an expert mechanic...but I am willing to work on it!
Here is my plan for keeping my ride smooth!
1) Physical tire - I am joing Weight Watchers January 5th and plan to lose 70 pounds. I also will start "moving" instead of sitting around!
1 Corinthians 6:19
19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
2)Spiritual tire - Prayer and Bible Reading is the roadway to a better relationship with God and His son, Jesus. I will depend on the Holy Spirit as I align myself to Him.
John 5:39-40
39You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me,
3) Emotinal tire - HERE is the tire that gives me the most is always over filled. I know that God gives the gifts, but the enemy can get in there a mess them up. I will work on my "feelings." How often do I get angry over nothing, sad watching a commercial, hilariously happy, or fretful? I want to be a RESPONDER...not a REACTOR!
James 1:25-27 If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.
4) Mental tire - I realize to give my emotional tire in better shape, my mental tire needs to be utilized more often. To be aligned in '09...I will have to make a choice to be more mental when trials, disagreements, confusion, well...You get the picture! The choice is MINE!
Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
I am ready to continue my trip through life, more aligned in 2009!

I love your "tire" analogy. Please keep my family in your prayers, my husband Paul lost his father on Jan. 2. Papa was 89 and lived a great life. He and my husband had hunted most of Dec together, including Mon, Tues, and Wed. after the Wed morning hunt they came in and Papa drove to the bank, (bad luck to have an empty wallet on New Year's day) we played cards,( he loved Rook and he won the last game) ate pizza for supper and wished us Happy New Year's. Had a great breakfast (that my husband cooked for him) and then shaved and showered. He was sitting in the sunroom of their house with me when he began feeling bad and then I went to get Paul to check on his daddy and then after a while I called 911. Before they could get to the house he became unconsious and was in Paul's arms when the EMT's arrived. They revived him in the ambulance and he lived until 3:16 on Friday morning. (John 3:16 was his favorite Bible verse) We know he is in a better place but we sure do miss him.
