I Cortinthians 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

I Messed Up!!

I had a tough week with my resisting temptation. I was not feeling well and I was also dealing with other things emotionally that I gave into concerning my eating. I have said that at times I will not eat due to dealing with things and at other times I will eat things I shouldn't. Well...last week was a week of eating things I shouldn't have. Don't get me wrong....stress is no excuse for not eating or for over eating. There is no excuse for not listening to the Lord in any situation. Did He try to tell me I didn't need to eat those things....yes He did!! Did I listen....no I didn't!! I am ashamed and I am upset with myself. I have asked the Lord to forgive me and my desire is to listen to Him today. I say today because I'm going to take it day by day...moment by moment. I cannot worry or think about tomorrow for it isn't here yet. I will get through today first.

I am drinking my water and really have no problem in that area lately. I love my water!! I have struggled more with what I have eaten. I ate a lot of junk last week and it caught up with me. It is no one's fault but my own.

Now that I have confessed my faults to you...I'm going to go exercise. I hope y'all have done better than I have.

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

I have been there, Sis. Julie!.. Those times when you're bringing the food to your mouth and you can hear the Holy Spirit telling you, "Don't do it! Don't do it!" Alas, I too fail miserably more times than I succeed. But, as with any other sin all we can do is confess it, forsake it, and move on. I'm glad to hear that you've still been able to keep up with your water. I haven't reached that goal yet. Maybe we should blend ourselves together... you drink the water, I'll eat properly, and we'll take turns with the exercise. Sound good? ;)

Hey Julie,
Don't sweat the little things. You have done so good, one week isn't going to kill you so don't let it get you down.
You asked Him for forgiveness so you can forgive yourself now and move on.

Your a great source of encouragement for me, keep it up!

Sis. Pam....That sounds like a good plan to me!!

Sis. Julie said...

Sis. Tori...Thanks for the sweet words of encouragement. I was pretty upset with myself at first when I weighed...but I had no one to blame but myself. Hopefully I can do much better this week. Yesterday was much better already!!


Ooh, sister Julie, I know you feel rotten and one mis step doesn't make you a failure. It just makes us realize how much we need the Lord. He has you in His Hand, you are just fine, you have the right spirit and God bless you. Thank you for all the times that you have encouraged me. I love you, sister and we WILL make it to the end of this journey. We probably will always have to fight but even in that we know that God has a reason so we'll be like Paul and have "our thorn in the flesh" we will be all the stronger. You are loved. connie from Texas

Sis. Connie...Thank you so much!! I love you too!! I know we can do this and we will do this...but not in our own strength...I just have to remember that part.
