Thank you. I've let some time pass and prayed about it and with my morning snack due the Lord told me I could use a 1/2 Ezekiel bread muffin, toast it and put some guacamole on it (rather than eat chipss which are loaded with sodium) and it satisfies. Satan really knows what buttons to push on me! The Lord holds the power over those buttons and I praise Him for it!
Would it help to have just a little bit of the chips and dip? That usually works for me and a small amount doesn't need to wreck your diet. You need to know that you can still enjoy some of what you crave.
You can do it with God's help. I am so glad that the vit D is helping your issues. It really does help to pray about things that would otherwise keep us upset and worried. Praise God for the improvements.
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

For diabetics Vitamin D is SO IMPORTANT! The deficiency is a major contributing factor for those with diabetes. We'd all be wise to have that check at our next doctor visit.
Need some encouragement. A coworker brought home made chunky guacamole & tortilla chips to work this morning. I want some SO BAD!!! Guac, Laffy Taffy and chocolate are my weaknesses. I want to eat it all!!! Satan sure knows how to derail me. I've been doing so good lately. HELP!!!
Our Pastor had a sermon a few weeks ago on how God wants to answer our prayers if we just pray earnestly and with faith that we will get answers. I had been having major balance problems since my severe illness two years ago and was very discouraged. I went home and prayed with the belief that God could answer that prayer if it was his will and the best for me; I had a Dr's appt and he asked me if I was taking vitamin D as my last lab results at my Nephrologist had shown mine was very low, a frequent occurrence in CKD. I said yes, I had gone back on the Vit D supplement I had been on when I was in Dialysis. He asked the dosage and when I told him he said I needed 50 times that dose for at least a month! I checked with the pharmacy and the RX that had been ordered was for the correct dose but I hadn't been able to hear the nurse over the phone well enough to catch it. I went on the correct dose and within days my balance improved and has now been normal for weeks. I also noticed a slight impovement in my hearing in my better ear which is another result that can be expected from Vit D supplements. God does answer our prayers, sometimes through human instruments. I could have gone for several more months without realizing my mistake before I went back to the kidney doctor.

A paraphrase of Philippians 3:3 tells us that we ...worship God in spirit, and glory in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh. And remember that we "do not yield submission even for a moment, that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you." (Galatians 2:5) Christ's Spirit is alive in every believer. Make sure it's also well in every aspect, mind, body and spirit. You go girl!

The devil thinks he will destroy my life here on earth. I am here to tell you I am in control, nothing or no one is going take what God has for me. God says I have s treasure built right here on earth anything I ask in the name of God it shall be done. So I am speaking healing into my body, a better diet, longer life...I am going too live, I am going too succeed in this challenge. In eight weeks I will be 6-8 lbs lighter,, I will bee able to walk, climb steps without being out of breath, my HR will be up and my endurance will be stronger, and even thou I suffer with frail chronic pain syndrome my pain will become lesser and lesser. My body is the temple of God's and no weapon formed against it shall prosper. My weight is 230... & I will see 141 in Jesus Name
