diet devo ~ day twenty one!

"There was a time when some of you were just like that, but now your sins have been washed away, and you have been set apart for God. You have been made right with God because of what the Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit of our God have done for you."
I Cor. 6:11 NLT

In many respects, dieting is like a washing away of fat. What greater joy is there than to step up on the scales and see the pointer a few marks to the left of where it was a couple of days before. When we lose, we feel cleansed, and the cleansing is not just physical. Emotionally we begin to feel better about ourselves. Our guilt, our poor self-image, our pain all begin to wash away too. This is the best washing of all. We are renewed both inside and out, and we become fitting and holy temples; righteous dwelling places for the Lord.

Today's thought: Each pound lost cleanses me physically, spiritually, and mentally.
