Lent day 11 (Remember I don't count Sundays) "Don't be afraid. Just Believe" Mark 5:36. I Turned 63 this year and I have been surprised at the increased amount of fear I have of falling, of illness, of husband's illnesses ... of getting old!!! and of loosing my brothers in death [all three have very fragile heart issues and other complications have put each of them on the line of life and death in the last three months. ] These repetitions in the scripture of Do not be afraid have been good for me. Then today there was a separate page in my devotional bible that was a compilation of verses of reminders that God is faithful;He has plans to prosper us; live according to His word; He will deliver us from our troubles; have hope in the power of His Spirit and again to be strong and courageous for He is with me, he will not fail me, He will not forsake me....DO NOT BE AFRAID; JUST BELIEVE. Wow! powerful stuff! Lord, I believe, help my unbelief!
Low Carb well, day 11 I go down one more notch to net carbs of 80 for this 10 days ... I think I am ready for this and YEAH I did it the first day!!! Loving the big green veggie salad! and splurging a little on some special meats --- little can of shrimp tonight! didn't get in quite as many fibers but balanced out OK!!
