diet devo ~ day sixteen

"I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness." John 12:46

When we feel bad about ourselves, we tend to dwell under a dark cloud of depression. Sometimes we can't think of anything else, but how much weight we've gained and how much we would like to lose. The good news is that darkness is always replaced by light. We can get out from under the burden of our weight. We can change for the better. Our Lord is a liberator. He frees us from anything that oppresses us. Obesity is oppressing, and God is ready and willing to free us. No darkness is too great for God to dispel. No matter how dark and dismal our physical condition may be, in the light of Christ, we can trim down.

Today's thought: We always look better in God's light than in our own darkness.

Sorry this is so late! We've had a busy day, Izzy had Bear... I did get to chat with Marcia! That was fun stuff. Anyway, tomorrow is TTT, come back and sign up, we are going to travel to the day we accepted Christ as our Lord. I look forward to reading all of your stories.
