"I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day...being mindful of your tears, that I may be filled with joy, when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you... and I am persuaded is in you also. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
I looked up the verse and thought so much of the context was perfect for here. Lord I lift up each one of these people and ask for Your blessing upon them. Help us to walk in the Light as You are in the light. Show each of us what we need to know today and thank You for Your presence and guidance in our lives. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
I don't know about anyone else but the only success I have had is when I wait until I'm hungry, I learned it with the Weigh Down Workshop, and with that you can eat ANYTHING YOU WANT as long as you're hungry. It's awesome, you never feel deprived, you just have to wait, it teaches patience. You also learn to listen to your body signal what it's craving because I believe God gave us bodies to help us know what it needs. So I started out a LITTLE hungry but...I pray to do better tomorrow. Other than that it was pretty good. Anyone else? I know you have different strategies, how are you doing?
