This week has been a struggle, I can’t say that the decision to live without Coke Zero has been an easy one but I have made it for 7 days without it. I really believed it would be easier to give it up but I crave it every moment of every day. It must be comparable to alcohol or drug addiction! The detox has literally made me sick, I’ve had a headache on and off for 6 days. It’s been really really hard!What I am coming to realize that food and Coke Zero have filled a void in my life and this void really is a powerful force. I don’t like being uncomfortable and I am realizing that this will take some discomfort. I have been reading my Bible like crazy and just depending on Him to get me through every day and some days I did better than others but I am learning to depend on Him.I am trusting that letting go of my rebellion is necessary to hear God speak more clearly in my life. For so long now I have wanted to do things my way with no one to tell me what to do and it has produced some really ulgy fruit in my life called selfishness & rebellion. I have made the decison to never drink cola again or eat after supper again but I have to make my body submit and take control over the things that have controlled me for so long but I can only do that with God’s help. Here is my verses for this week1 Cor 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27 No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. How has your week gone? What has God been teaching you about the fruit of the spirit in your life? I challenge you to look at what God is asking you to give up for the sake of “Living Well”! Thanks for stopping by!
