I want to share this poem with my spark friends!
Help Me Not Cheat
Dear God, I don't like that word "cheat"! How ridiculous of me to think that I can somehow get ahead by committing fraud against myself. Show me if there is a problem in my approach to dieting that makes cheating seem worthwhile. If so, I want to change that, Lord. I want to feel clean and whole and honest through and through. I don't want to cheat myself or others or You. Today I pray to hunger for integrity in my deepest being. May I automatically reject the idea of dishonesty in any form, be it little white lies, secret binges, or false flattery from others. I want to be reliable and honest with little things so that You might trust me with the big things. But I need Your help. You are "the way and the truth and the life" (John 14:6), and I'm counting on You. Amen. 3280 days ago
