Today I really struggled. I have been doing so well this Lent season and today I wanted to eat everything!
Stinking Thinking is what can keep us stuck in our old ways. When Lt. Rob mentioned the pizza I immediately said, “Bad idea” to my self. But as he kept mentioning it, I started thinking of how good I have been and how pizza wasn’t really a treat, so I could eat it without breaking my Lent vow. There was my excuse and I ran with it.
1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
I caught myself later in the day really being obsessed with food. Which is not where I have been with food these past weeks. I had to do something to get my mind off it! I took a break and exercised. I felt much better and then I felt hungry. Some days it is more difficult to do the right thing then other days.
I realized that I am over tiered. When we lack enough sleep we can compensate by over eating. People who do not get enough sleep tend to be 25 pounds or more over weight. When I am over tiered I also forget to honor God. Most of us need 8-10 hours of sleep a day.
Today I hope we each have a wonderful day! If you are tiered or stressed sleep and rest in His love. “Stinking Thinking” attacks all of us. Attack back with the word of God!
Proverbs 3:5-7 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
Be fit and be blessed,
