Fit Bit (resist the flesh)

Fit Bit (resist the flesh)
Dear Kimberly,

     I am so sick of this heart healthy diet.  I want salt and more red meat.  I also want more treats.  I am angry that I have to do this.  How do I get my head wrapped around this?


Wanting to not resist the flesh.

Dear Resist the Flesh,

   Proverbs 23:7  “ As a man thinketh in his heart so shall he be.”

We all have things we need to stay away from, in order to live a God centered, balanced life.  Each of us struggles with something.  Currently, yours’ is a heart healthy diet.  In order to resist the flesh we have to truly desire doing so.  Every time you think, “I don’t like this heart healthy stuff”, immediately dismiss that thought and replace it with;

 Thank you for giving me the insight and desire to take care of my body as your temple, please keep my desires upon you and your ways. 
Through Jesus name I pray,

In your minds eye see yourself living a healthy life.  See yourself being Gods’ love.
When harmful thoughts enter your brain, simply dismiss them, through prayer trusting in the powerful gift of Jesus.

In order to wrap your head around this choose your thoughts and keep them Holy.

1 Peter 4:19  “Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful creator.

Be fit and be blessed,

  1. Tell them that if they want salt and red meat they can, but they will
    be unhealthy, out of shape and have a poor appearance.
    It has to be a lifestyle, not a diet. diets are for dummies. I myself
    live a healthy lifestyle and eat pizza & chocalate dipped cones at
    dairy queen but once a week and it is well deserved.
    If this person wants these things, tell them to make their workout
    more intensive and frequent.

    i forgot to touch on food being a comfort thing when down and out.
    maybe thats the reason for the binge which is understandable and it
    happens to all of us. Thats where family and friends come in the
    picture to help get us out of the rut....either way, the more bad
    things you put in your body, the worse off you will be
