the key

I am going through TW workbook number 2. I have gone through this before but this time something really jumped out at me that did not jump out the first time. A section of this lesson says that the key is to quit trying by our own strength and start trusting by faith.
Faith involves turning away from the law and trusting in the Holy Spirit as we walk in the power of God's transforming grace.
Reexamine your hunger numbers and make adjustments
Observe and correct by the leading of the Spirit.
Pay attention to how your body responds to various foods.
Continue to taste God's Word and see that the Lord is good.
God knows what I need and when I need it. I got really offtrack on my eating 2 or 3 times in the last couple of weeks. He feeds me His Word and speaks to me just exactly what I need when I need it and how much I need. If I follow the lead of the Lord He will do this with my food and eating times as well. I just need to trust and obey.

It is so true that we need to learn to listen to our bodies. I do not believe that our bodies will lie to us.
When my body tells me I am hungry, I neeed to eat. When it tells me I am no longer hungry I need to stop eating.
I had been working very hard gardening, babysitting and cleaning. Yesterday my body said it was time to rest. I took a nap, slept all night and feel better today but I am still tired so I am getting extra rest again. It is a temptation to drink something with caffeine or eat something with sugar to give myself a boost, but in the long run this would not benefit me.
What is your body telling you today?
