I just had to share some thoughts about eating in hopes that it would encourage you to make healthy choices (because I know I need to write this to encourage me, too!):
I LOVE salad! I LOVE fruits and veggies! Candy is not really my thing. Chocolate is only good once/week!
Do you believe me?
OK, I’m trying to believe me.
Philippians 4:8, says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
According to Tommy Newburg in his book, 4:8 Principle, “Acting your way into your feelings is simply the discipline that will align your behavior with values.” So I keep acting like I am a lean-food lover, in hopes that it becomes more and more true each day, and it does! I believe it is excellent to be thinking healthy thoughts – more so than thinking about the chocolate cake that used to call my name from the freezer. (See how I threw that past tense in there? “Used to” call my name? ha! It’s working!)
Control your thoughts; they lead to actions. (James 1:14-15)
Have a blessed and healthy week!
You are in my prayers,
