But God....

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

I'm so thankful for God's grace and mercy. I'm learning that the mind is indeed a battlefield. The devil knows this. If I keep entertaining temptations, it will come to pass. I must always stay in the Word if I want to enjoy an abundant life that Jesus died for.

I keep turning to the wrong things to get over boredom. I sometimes think I sabotage myself. Why do I do that? Lord, I need an answer.

    This a day by day journey and as with very journey, sometimes we travel down the wrong path. But God is our GPS and He always gets us back on track if we just listen to Him. So just keep on trusting in your GPS and everything will be fine!
In Jesus Name

    Hi Susan! So nice to meet you! I am adding you as a friend and hope you will add me, too. I've found that being proactive helps. I snack often to keep from overeating. So I cleaned out a cupboard drawer and filled it with healthy snacks, such at baggies with 1/8 cup baking nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.), sugar-free pudding cups, 100 calorie low sodium popcorn, etc. When I choose a snack, it is already measured. I also carry a couple in my purse to ward off the "drive-through devil". My body is God's temple and I choose to honor Him with it. Have a great week!!

    Hang in there. It takes time. Things become a habit when we practice it. Today I walked pass a bowl of donuts at work and did not desire them. I am overjoyed at this but it took time to get to this point. Try asking God for help every time you want to reach for something unhealthy. I get from reading your page that you want to please God. So look at it this way, every time you make a healthy choice it pleases God. Hope this helps.
