i can wake up each new day, and be productive.
i can make wise food choices.
i can have healthy, god-glorifying thoughts.
i can find joy. every. day.
i just started a new scripture reading plan.
(check it out, soul detox on youversion!)
i think it's based on a book, but i've yet to learn for sure.
what i do know, several instagram and twitter pals are participating.
each day we'll share something we gleaned from the devotion.
we stay connected by tagging our photos/thoughts with #shereadstruth,
it's not too late for you to join us!
the plan is to identify toxic thoughts in our lives.
then destroy them through replacing them with scripture.
(speaking of my plan. i am absolutely loving the setting captives free program. highly recommend it!)
i believe i can do this.
have a godly thought life, serve others, not idolize food...anything.
because god says it's possible through christ.
and when i feed on his word, filling up on him and seeking his face, he honors that.
i'm created in the image of god, placed in this time for a purpose.
ultimately to bring glory to him and share his truth.
i believe i will be useful for his kingdom, beginning in my own heart and in my family.
i am encouraged by the physical progress i've already seen, like losing eleven pounds!
better still, the spiritual progress.
the work the lord has done and is doing in my life through study and communion with him.
he is my strength. this is the true reward.
christ is my true satisfaction.
i am excited. i think about life in general, not only my conquering food.
i am really believing god, taking him at his word. and this is cause for rejoicing!
some days are certainly more difficult than others, but the lord is always near. and i can press on.
what are you believing?
are you trusting in yourself, or in christ as your strength for today?
join me. let's fight to win each day for HIM, together!
