Get Thee Behind Me, Temptation


Monday, August 26, 2013

With my birthday coming up soon I have been getting all kinds of offers for freebies. There is the ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery, the free desert at Chili's, a free milk shake at Arby's, a free meal at Denny's, and a free meal at IHop, etc.... I was looking at all of these offers and thinking "oh my, what a bunch of temptations!!"
Then I glanced further down my list of emails and there was the daily devotion that gets sent to me every day. And the title of the devotion that day was, amazingly, When You Are Tempted. Can you believe that?? Just when I needed it!!
So I know that I am well covered.

    I know the freebies are tempting, Arlene, but they're not really free. You'll pay for them in extra weight....and in how you feel if you give in to them. You know you will be remorseful and mad at yourself later. They're not really free after all! So stay strong, I know you can do it!

    big hugs Arlene...I needed this ...this minute..DH just said lets go out for breakfast, he wants biscuits and gravy, I am not a fan of B&G but I have been thinking a lot about the banana walnut muffins...they are huge there and I'm sure about 600 calories ....

your blog gave me the strength to say lets just eat the fresh berries and yogurt we have....he said sure Muff what ever you won't.....

I feel a big victory....had a good work out as well

    Wonderful Arlene! Yes, God is faithful and "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). I tend to forget and I want to thank you for the reminder!

    Maybe you should take a picture of yourself, and then cut out a little picture of each "freebie" that is sent and attach them to your hip area etc. Good deterrent no? emoticon
