Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. Do not
destroy the work of God for the sake of food. Romans 14:19-20
Have you ever realized that nothing tastes as good as peace feels?
Maybe you are thinking that is true but - how do you get to taste this portion of peace.
I shared with our group from my own discoveries and personal journeys that I am filled with peace when I am obedient to what I know is truth. The truth that I am talking about comes Gods Word. It is His Word that brings knowledge and wisdom into my heart and mind and fill me with Truths. These Truths help guide me and empower me to make right choices in every area of my life. The Truths have set me free from guilt and shame!
In this chapter on from Guilt to Peace I examined a particular area of my eating habits and challenged myself to take a break from daily snacking on chips & dips.
Now that might not sound like a big deal to you but to me and my family - it is a daily festival for us to partake in! We love us some Chips & Salsa or Chips and Dip!!
I am proud to say that I went 6 days without any chips and since then I have even cut back and have become more aware to my intake of this habit of snacking.
My husband has also joined in on cutting back!
The material we are learning about in Made to Crave has helped me to accomplish going on a 6 day fast from any chips. You may not think that this was a big challenge but to my family this is a big deal. We consume so many bags of chips and salsa & dips a week that we are known for it!
I am grateful that I have become aware of this and have learned truths that strengthen self control and give me the courage to deny unhealthy desires throughout my day.
Our bible study group is becoming more aware of this and each of us are growing into women of peace!
