Feeling blessed

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Eating cleaner and less food (and junk!) has been something of a struggle for me this week. But with God's grace I have chosen not to give in to most cravings, or make substitutions that, while not perfect, are better than what I've actually been craving. I know that if I allow Him to continue to help me, this struggle will be a thing of the distant past. Permanently. I'm taking it one day at a time.

Today I don't know that I ate enough proteins, and I may have eaten too many carbs (but I really don't think so...), but I did better on sweets today too. Two Nature's Valley breakfast biscuits, blueberry. And I don't mean two packages; I mean two biscuits. That was AWESOME for me. I was starving. And out. And busy. So I opened a package, ate two biscuits very slowly while I was driving, and tucked the remainder away in a drawer when I got home so that I could have a lunch of sautéed cabbage and grilled chicken. My husband, of course, walked in with a burrito from a restaurant for me, and I graciously had a few bites, but I then pushed my plate over to him, telling him I knew he was still hungry, and I resumed my healthier lunch.

Small victories, right? With God's grace, I WIN!

    You're right Tyco4me. It's so easy to get wrapped up in what we can and cannot do in our own strength, and if we just relax and let Him help us, we can achieve so much more. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. II Cor. 12:9.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Isn't the Lord Awesome? He is so concerned with the everyday activities of our lives, and He graciously helps us to overcome. I appreciate your perspective, and I praise you for your victories! Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
