You probably don’t have this problem, but I like food!
I don’t think I ever realized how little self-control I have until this week. I have a strong metabolism, so I can eat pretty much whatever I want and stay “sort of small.”
The problem is that I am not fit. I am not making healthy food choices. I have treated my body like a trash compactor, feeding it all the junk!
I cannot eat like a teenager anymore. My body is a temple of the Living God, and the Spirit of my Father dwells in me!
Recently, I have started exercising self-control by writing down a limit for what I will eat a day before I will eat it. I am having a serious mental battle about the foods that I am missing, especially Crunch Bars!
I didn’t realize the lack of self-control that I have had in the past years. I don’t want to be more legalistic about what I eat or drink than I am about being God’s Word.I just want to be more aware of what I am putting into my body to fuel it!
If you want, join me in this prayer.
Father, help me eat when and what you want me to eat. Help me use the mind of Christ to make right choices instead of my fleshly impulses. I pray that everything I do glorifies you!
In Jesus’ name.
