diet devo ~ day thirty

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1My grandmother had a favorite picture that showed Jesus stretching out His hand to Peter while they were walking on the sea.
It gave her great comfort to know that if she ever failed in her faith,
Christ would stretch out His loving hand to lift her up.
Whenever she dieted, she kept that picture close at hand.
When the diet got to hard for her to cope with,
she looked at her picture and felt God there with her.
When we try to give up anything, it's good to admit it will be hard to do on our own.
When we reach out to God, he will always reach back.

Today's thought:
When my diet gets toughest, God will be closest.
