Good Morning Ya'll!! Its snowing....again. LOL (Onepinkfuzzy... you should bring Ash up to play in it if it sticks!!)
So I don't want to step on anyone's toes.. but I came across this book that I want to share with everyone. Its called "Devotions for Nibblers" by Kristen Johnson Ingram. I started the first day today and I want to share it with everyone... for those of you who are Christian.. it may help you!
He rained down on them manna to eat, and gave them the grain of heaven. Mortals ate of the bread of angels; he sent them food in abundance.
I know God will supply what I need - but that isn't ever enough for me. I overeat, or I eat the wrong things, or both, and I think God wants me to look at what that behavior means.
I'm like one of the children of Isreal in the wilderness. God sends me manna and I ask for meat; God sends me meat and I ask for a banana split. And at the core of all this asking and wanting is the mysterious fear that somehow I won't have enough - so I eat as much as I can whenever food is around.
Manna was good for only one day; you couldn't stock up on it because it spoiled. I think God is showing me that I'm saving my manna as body fat, which is spoiling my health, my appearence, and my dignity. What I have to do now is really believe that God wants the best for me.
For Further Reflection:
1. Are you willing to let God satisfy your needs today?
2. Do you trust God to guide you about food?
3. Can you remember to gather God's love anew each morning, and not try to store it up?
God, I need to believe You will take care of my relationship with food. Teach me real trust. Amen
I hope this might help some of you... I will post a page from the Devotional every Thursday.... if you want me too share more of it with you let me know and I'll email it to you every morning.
Anyway... because of the snow my hubby is still home.. which has affected my workout time... but thats ok.. I can do it a little bit later. My diet was a little off last night.. so I really need to buckle down for the next 4 days so that I can have a great Weigh In day on the 1st day of 2007!

Have A Blessed Day!
