Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and eat with him, and he with me.

Before we leave perfection and performance-based distraction, let’s take another look at Moses. I hear myself in his plea to God that he isn’t enough.

It’s not about us being worthy or doing enough – it’s about GOD! God is with us and promises to never leave or forsake us. (Deuteronomy 31:6) Not only will He not leave us, but He promises, as His dearly loved daughters, He will protect us.

I was done letting my life be filled with the worries about tomorrow and I was going to count my blessings today, because tomorrow may never come.
The smallest mistakes would put me into a downward spiral of self-loathing that took me out of any form of productive growth I had started to see. I’d take two steps forward and fall 10 steps backward.
We’ve arrived, food talk! 1/3 of women are on a diet.

I believe that our over focus on food and theContinue reading “Food, Diet and how to find Your Unique Eating Lifestyle”
