Healthy Eating Go-To Scripts from Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst

#1 – God has given me power over my food choices.  I’m supposed to consume food.  Food isn’t supposed to consume me.

Encouragement from THE Book:

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 Amplified Bible (AMP) But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!

 So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses

(notice this is plural!)

 for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength).

Note to self:

Loved this pin I saw on Pinterest:  “Eat Less Sugar – You’re Sweet Enough Already.”  I don’t have to consume sugar!

sweet enough
