Wrap it up!!

1st day back to normal foods.

I thought for sure I would have this strong "longing" satisfied by food today...don't get me wrong, food is good, but not what I thought.

Keeping my focus on God and eating in moderation is something I want to continue.  As much as the "longing for food, more so I want a closer walk with God!!

Things I found very interesting while going through the book "Made to Crave" and the devotional "Craving God"  was how many times it talks about food in the bible...
- Eve gave into sin by eating food
- The Israelites complained about food (lack of) even when God provided for them in the desert

Things won't always be easy, but if I crave God instead of food, I can make it through!

Made to Crave Truths...

  • I am a forgiven Child of God (Romans 3:24)
  • I am a set-free child of God (Romas 8:1-2
  • I am an accepted Child of God (1 Corinthians 1:2)
  • I am a holy child of God (1 Corinthians 1:20)
  • I am a made-new child of God (2 Corinthians 5:17
  • I am a loved child of God (Ephesians 1:4)
  • I am a close child of God (Ephesians 2:13)
  • I am a confident child of God (Ephesians 3:12)
  • I am a victorious child of God (Romans 8:37)

P.S.  Can I just say...Thank you Lysa for being obedient and writing these books...they have helped me out so much!!  I will be recommending them to my friends!  God bless you and your ministry!!

Daniel Fast Day 21

Final Day!!!

If you told me 21 days ago that I would do this, I would have doubted that I could make it to the end...but here I am!!  I did it and I feel just fine!!

Thank God for being there when I struggles through the fast.

Looking forward to Caribou Coffee!!!!!

Daniel Fast Day 20

Almost done - been thinking about all the foods I will be able to eat again.  Wondering if those same strongholds for food will be as strong as they once were!

----------------STOP worrying about tomorrow and focus on today!!!

Daniel Fast Day 19

"I can" - I can overcome

I still have no cravings for food...I'm hungrier, but not "dieing" for anything in particular

Daniel Fast Day 18

From Made To Crave by Lysa Terkeurst:
"All things are permissible, not all things are beneficial..."

1 Corinthians 10:23
"I have the right to do anything you." you say - but not everything is beneficial.  "I have the right to do anything" - but not everything is constructive."

I am not defined by the number on the scale!!!
