I really enjoy my daily devotions to dieters from Crosswalks (thanks Erika for sharing this site with me). Here is today's thought and I truly believe it to be.
Knowing what is right and doing what is right are completely different matters. Jessica knew she should lose weight, and she knew the way to do that was to cut back on what she was eating. The problem was that she didn't want to give up any of the foods she loved. She just wasn't committed enough. A friend of hers told her that she had all the knowledge she needed in her head, but none of it was in her heart. The reason she couldn't stick to her diet was that she didn't want to lose weight badly enough. When we find ourselves lacking the proper desire, we need to turn to the Lord, to ask His strength for doing what we know to be right.
Today's thought: Dieting is more than a matter of the mind. It's a matter o f the heart!
I really believe today's thought. Until I was ready to believe that I deserved to be happy and healthy I stayed miserable. Once I realized in my heart that I deserved it I begin to take the steps I needed to become a healthy happier me.
My thought: God always believes in us. We just need to have more faith in ourselves and realize that we truly deserve this kind of life. We deserve to be healthy happy people. Take the first step. Don't wait as long as I did. Things won't change on their own. YOU have to make the change. YOU have to take that first step. BELIEVE ! ! !
Take Care and God Bless ! ! !
