experiment with the word...

Monday, April 23, 2012

But Behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and excercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until you can believe in a manner that ye can give palce for a portion of my words, Alma 32:27

In my previous journey where I actually lost weight, I came to the realization that this journey was very similar to Alma's description of faith. We have to do more than believe the principles of weightloss will work, we have to actually do them.

I know that eating in my calorie range, good wholesome food, and excericising will help me lose weight, but today I have to actually do them.

This 12-step journey also asks us to pray for help in the journey. We have been cautioned by church leaders that we don't need to pray over every single little detail in our lives, that are are "to do many things of our own free will and choice."

But if our eating is out of control isn't it right to ask to get control over our eating. To control what is "eating us" so that we can eat right?

My goal today is to do what I know is right, and ask God to help me do it.

    how is this working out. Sometimes I pray for strength to choose my foods wisely. I cannot choose to eat a cookie if I know I have asked for help. then I have to do my part. It is far more powerful than I can describe it in writing.

    Remember God did not put us here to fail.

    I certainly feel that praying for help with our diet plan is very appropriate. If it is important to you, it is important to our Heavenly Father. Our body is the temple that contains our spirit and we know how important temples are!

    Thanks for posting this! If it is hard for us, and we need help, He definitely wants us to ask for it. You're blog has helped remind me of this. Thanks again!! emoticon

    God wants us to depend on him and ask him for help in every area of our lives. He wants a relationship with us. There is no part of our life that God doesn't already know about, but he still wants to walk beside us all the way. Big thing, small things, even petty things, God wants to be there and wants to help.
