Holiday Appetites

Rebecca has a very thought-provoking post here. I know some of you are not people of faith but the thought here can still speak to you as well.

I love the thought:


Whatever we feed will live to tempt us another day.
 
By the way, the FIRST "thieving rationalization" is 
"it is just until....."
as if today doesn't really count or that we will deal with the issue later.
"Today always counts," she writes.
"If we fail to deal with issues today, they will deal with us tomorrow."

What are we really feeding when we overeat or eat poorly? We are feeding the temptation to continue.

If we don't make the choice to deal with our issues around food and eating today while we still have that choice, we could be dealing with diabetes or heart problems where there will be no choice but to deal with them.

"it is just until"  what? After that we can always repeat this rationalization. Indefinitely? No, it's not indefinite; we will eventually have to pay the piper, the chickens will come home to roost, and all that.

Today always counts. We must put these bad habits to death, we must. Without being fed, they will die.

Be careful out there today.

  1. Today - this hour, this choice - Now. Not after the 1st of January. Not after I get over this cold, flu; past these parties; finish this bottle of wine :)

    1. Touche` Rebecca :-) God puts things/people in our lives to point out what we need to work on. I am thankful for you. Take care and have a blessed Lord's Day. We are taking the Sunday School kids to the local nursing home today and our Christmas service is today at 5:30 and 7:00 - another full day.

  2. A strong mind and a strong body go hand-in-hand. So many people spend so much time focusing on their bodies while they neglect their minds.

    1. Just to get quiet and be still is an effort. We are so used to all this incoming stimulation that we can't do without it and find it difficult to focus on our minds. Merry Christmas.
