diet devo ~ day twenty-nine

"Get rid of your sins and leave all iniquity behind you. Then your face will brighten in innocence. You will be strong and free of fear."
Job 11:14-15

A vegetarian friend of mine went to a party and was handed a plate filled with wonderful appetizers. He selected one, took a bite, and then - to everyone's surprise he threw the remainder across the room with all his might. He stood with a stunned and bewildered look on his face. The appetizer had been filled with meat and his immediate reaction was to throw it as far away as possible. I think of that whenever I am tempted to grab something to eat that I shouldn't have. In my mind I have to throw it far away acting like it is something terrible so I won't give into the temptation.

Today's thought:
I will put far away anything that tempts me today.

Sorry this is late tonight...
Here's Izzy in her jammies (& sozo sleep shirt) ready for bed! Goodnight!

Throwing the food...it's like Joseph & Potiphar's wife! You could try running away from food and get your exercise in, too! :)

Oh Amanda's comment cracked me up. Good point! I love Izzy's shiny pj pants. She's so precious.

Definitely sounded like fleeing from temptation. The vegetarian response must have been a real party-stopper. Wow.

I crave things for sure, but I just don't bring it into the home. Keep the temptations OUT!
