The Serenitiy Prayer is probably the best one. we need to find calm with things we can't change, courage to make the changes in ourselves that we can and the widom to know the difference.

we often get confused thinking we can change a lot of things or dont try at all because we think we cant. pray for the wisdom to know the difference.

Today is a new beginning and a new opportunity to start fresh. Don’t let regrets from yesterday, a week ago, or even years ago, bog you down any longer. --JM

I've missed a couple weeks. I'll post them all here. There are several great verses in this bunch:

1 Peter 1:14-16
Like obedient children, do not act in compliance with the desires of your former ignorance but, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, "Be holy because I [am] holy."

//'in every aspect of your conduct' speaks to me. Overeating is not holy.//

Romans 7:19-25
For I do not do the good I want, but I do the evil I do not want. Now if [I] do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. So, then, I discover the principle that when I want to do right, evil is at hand. For I take delight in the law of God, in my inner self, but I see in my members another principle at war with the law of my mind, taking me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Miserable one that I am! Who will deliver me from this mortal body? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore, I myself, with my mind, serve the law of God but, with my flesh, the law of sin.

//We have the tendency to sin. We're made that way. I love 'who will deliver me from this mortal body?!' By focusing on Jesus, HE will.//

Matthew 26:41
Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

//boy, is the flesh weak//

1 Corinthians 10:13
No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.

//I always wondered where the phrase 'He never gives you more than you can handle' came from. Here it is. Better even, He will provide a way out!//

2 Corinthians 12:9
My grace is sufficient for you. For my power is made perfect in your weakness.

//my weakness is food. Through God's grace, his power helps me through this journey.//

1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?

//How can I treat God's temple, God's Spirit within me, with such neglect?//

Matthew 6:16-18
When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites. They neglect their appearance, so that they may appear to others to be fasting. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to others to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.

//I don't have to be miserable or complaining about not having cake or ice cream. No complaining. God knows my sacrifice, and will glorify me when the time is right. This makes me smile.//

I hope these help you in your journeys!

Isaiah 40:29
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

When I'm tired of working so hard, when I feel weak in the face of -want- and -temptation-, He strengthens and fortifies me.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:21

Before this journey, much of the glory was in how I looked at food (think of all the fun 'bacon!' posts on FB). Now I've shifted the glory where it belongs. Not in eating, but in my relationship with my Savior, Jesus.

Have a Blessed Week!

Now those who belong to Christ have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also follow the Spirit.

I forgot last week's:
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a Spirit of cowardice, but of power and love and self-control.

We can do this! Think about what He has given us...the strength to persevere, love to accept ourselves and others, and self-control to recognize what is best for us. I repeat, We Can Do This!

Galatians 5: 22-23
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Let these fruits of the Spirit wash over you and give you confidence that you can accomplish anything with the help of God!

It's Monday, and the new verse is 1 Corinthians 6:12
"All things are lawful for me," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be enslaved by anything.
(IOW, just because I can ________, does not mean I should __________. Eating whatever I want whenever I want falls into this verse.)

I have a verse pop up on my phone calendar every day for a week that will help in my journey toward a healthy body. Let's post verses that will help with keeping us motivated to get our bodies and minds living in the Spirit. (In parentheses, post how it's helping in your journey.)

Last week's verse was Romans 8:5-6
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
(This is helping me realize that what my body wants (sweets) is nothing compared to focusing on my spirituality and living as God would have me live.)

This week's verse is Romans 12:1 -
I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
(I need to treat my body in a healthy way to bring it back to God.)
