Are we choosing sin? Am I choosing darkness instead of light? The Bible says that with each temptation I am given a way out so I might be able to bear it. I take this as a promise. If I get on my knees when tempted to overeat, spend impulsively, or gossip, God will give me a way out. I need to take the way out and listen and obery.

My goal is for 7 days to eat when hungry, hungry enough to eat liver, which I do not like very well, stop when the hunger goes away, and pray about my choices eating what my body wants.
Most of all I want to put God first. I want to eat out of stomach hunger and not head hunger. If my soul is thirsty or hungry I want to go to Him, the Living Bread and Water and not to food. Help me in these endeavors, Jesus.

I am sorry it has been so long since I posted. I checked my blog and could not believe that it was January since I had last posted.

The Lord is speaking to me about love being the motive in this weight loss and in maintaining the weight. I love Him and am thankful to Him for creating this temple, so I want to care for it properly. I love my family so do not want to burden them with physical ailments just because I do not care for my own body.

The Lord is also speaking to me about crucifying the flesh. To, in all areas, do what pleases the Spirit and not the flesh.

Thought provoking

I heard something today that goes right along with TW. A TV minister said that we either live by principles or by preference. If we live by preference we live for our own pleasures. If we live by principle we live by what is right no matter how we feel.
He also covered the fact that our body is not our own to do with as we please. It is the Temple of the Holy Ghost.
That makes me think twice before having that fourth cup of coffee or about overeating.

The holidays can be very difficult in eating situations. Help us, Lord, to focus on our relationship with you and with people instead of on the food.
On Thanksgiving, with God's help, I was able to stay within hunger and satisfaction parameters. I am noticing that these rich foods are not whole body pleasers. Even though I did not overeat my stomach was a little upset.
I will pray more about food choices.

This is Thanksgiving month and I have so much to be thankful for. Two family members came through surgeries very well and with good reports.
During these stressful times the Lord dealt with me about standing on His word and His promises and not wavering no matter what circumstances looked like. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways and if I say the truth one moment and speak out of fear the next I will not be in faith at all.
I can't say there was no turning to food for comfort, but very little. Thank you that you change us little by little, Lord, and that your mercies are new every morning.

I have retired for the second time and am realizing how important it is to allow ourselves to feel our feelings.
The ususal response for me would be to go immediately to something else. I know this is a big change and a loss for me and if I do not take time to feel the grief of that I will be eating, dieting, or keeping super busy.
I am so excited about the emotional healing that is taking place in my heart.
Thank you for emotions, Lord, and for showing us how to handle them and express them.
