Great start

It's been a great start to my week and we're just a few hours in. I arose great this morning for kickboxing. It had been weeks since being on vacation and I wasn't too sure how it would work out this morning, but I woke with a skip in my step and ready for the day. I'm really looking forward to the Made to Crave webcast tonight. I wanted to share some things that Lysa shared today on her P31 blog.

1. The scale can measure your physical weight but never your worth as a woman. Do you know that? I mean do you know it the second you step on that scale and start calling yourself names you’d never let other people call you?

2. You are more than a sum total of your tastebuds. Remind yourself when you think you want that unhealthy food option that only your tastebuds want that… your heart doesn’t want that candy bar. Your arms don’t want those french fries. Your brain doesn’t want those chips. Your hiney doesn’t want that cheesecake.

Only your tastebuds want that… so let your arms, brain, heart and hiney boss your tastebuds around. Let majority rule!

3. Nothing tastes as good as peace feels. Sweet sister, God made you to walk in His peace. You were made to consume food but food was never supposed to consume you. Of all the things Jesus has asked the Holy Spirit to remind us, peace was first on His list!

“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid,” (John 14: 26-27).

Ask yourself, “Is this food option going to add to my peace or take away from it? Because, nothing tastes as good as peace feels!”

I know victory is possible. I must lean on HIS Truth and Grace.
