There is a Power and a Presence
within me. It is all knowing,
all caring, all loving, all powerful.
It is the completeness of the Universe,
individualized as me.
It is who I am, It is what I am.
It is God as me now.

The only one who can stop me... is me...And I can take her !

Good, better, best never let it rest until your good is your better and your better your best!

When it seems you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Devotional For Dieters 4/7

April 7


Ephesians 4:1-2
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love.


Temper: It seems that the longer you diet, the shorter it gets. Keep-ing control of our temper is one of the harder parts of dieting. We feel everyone has some word of advice on what we ought to do differently, that no one really understands what we're going through, and no one appreciates all that we do without. It's no wonder we find ourselves a little short-tempered at times. That's when we need to turn to the source of all patience and peace. If Christ is allowed to rule in our hearts, we will find a new depth of tolerance and forbearance.
Today's thought: Losing weight is no excuse for losing patience!

Devotional For Dieters 3/20

March 20

Psalm 55:16
As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.

We went around the circle, telling about the diet plans we had tried. Most of the people said they had no luck, no matter what they tried. I was the only one who had succeeded in losing a considerable amount of weight. Everyone looked expectantly toward me when my time came. I smiled shyly and said, 'The only thing that I did differently from any of you was to pray. I didn't trust any of the diet plans I saw, so I turned to God, instead. You all can try what you want to, but as for me, I'm going to keep putting my faith in God. He's why I'm thin now.'
Today's thought: When all else fails; try God!

Devotional For Dieters 3/19

March 19

Romans 8:31
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?


Let's not call it our diet; let's call it God's diet. No, that doesn't mean God has to lose the weight. It means that we diet because it's what God wants of us. If it's God's diet, then God will help make sure that it goes well. He will bless those who diet in His name. It may sound silly to diet for God, but, as Christians, we are called to do everything in His name. When we live our lives as an offering to God, then we let the whole world know who gives us our strength and courage. If God is for us, then nothing can stand against us.
Today's thought: Dieting for God is a joy and a comfort!
