Diet Devotional 28
"And let us consider how we may SPUR one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:24
Okay, it's your turn. Your turn to give me ideas.
First, please pray for me. This week is going to be rough. Three reasons: 1. As we are wrapping up the final packing of our house, we are also trying to eat up as much as we can so that we don't have to store or waste food. Of course, we will probably donate rather than waste. But still, the point is that we are trying to eat all of our food, much of which is not on my diet at all. 2. I am honestly stressed about the move. We'll be staying with my in-laws for a few months. They are really great, but they are clean people. Any of you that know me, know that I am not very neat or organized at all. So, I'm stressing about the challenge and the possible failure to keep their house ship-shape. 3. "That time" - All I can think about this week is chocolate. Three days in a row, I have eaten chocolate, and there's not a bit of me that wants to change that. Aaargh!!
So, that said...I'd like to hear your thoughts on some great ways to survive the next week, and possibly the next three months. What do you think? Second, I'd like some accountability. It's time to practice what I preach. When you see me next or if you want to post to the comments section, just ask me what I've eaten in the last 5 hours. That should keep the pressure on and help me stick with it. Somehow, it helps me to not secretly shrink away from the plan. If no one knows, then I can eat what I want, right? Bad brain! Bad brain!! Stop that nonsense!! God is bigger than that kind of desperate, defeated thinking!
It looks like prayer and Bible study may be scarce over the next few days, so I need some external support. Thanks for all your help! Hope to hear from you!!
