Grace Filled Food Freedom ~ Day 11

May be an image of text that says 'Day 11 How great is Your love toward me, Father God! I praise You for loving me from the beginning of time and setting me apart for Your good works. Thank You for saving me and giving me a hope and a future! GRACE FILLED PLATES'

Day 11: He Brushes the Crumbs Away

VERSE: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24 ESV

READ: Romans 3:21-28

EXCERPTOur negative assessment only leads to further guilt and shame, which have a sneaky way of growing into (even more) poor choices. It’s a joy-stealing cycle that can only be stopped by one thing.So, how can you stop the downward spiral? With God’s grace. Grace that washes and wipes away our human failures.

Today is Salvation Celebration Day! Spend the day thanking God for sending His Son, and thanking Jesus for doing that which not one of us could do.Then, praise Him with your choices and in your failures (as they remind you of how He’s covered you with His blood).

I am so thankful for God’s love for me. I call him my Abba Papa…he is my protector, my counselor, my friend and most importantly he loves me for me…just the way I am!!! With all my foibles and flaws but also because he knows my heart…I want to bring hope to the hopeless, love to those who feel unloved, encouragement to those who feel down…all the things I want to do for others he does for me.

I started this new journey of making healthy choices and getting healthier emotionally and physically on Sunday, September 26…it’s been one month. I am actually doing two programs by combining them…it’s not a diet ~ I’m making changes in my every day lifestyle…some of the things I have done include;

~ logging everything I eat
~ I stopped eating in bed at night
~ shopping on the outside aisles of the grocery store as much as possible
~ started writing every day, if only a paragraph or two
~ spending time in God’s Word (should be at the top of my list)
~ being intentional in my conversations with others

Over the next month the goals I’m adding to my list include:

~ not buying soda pop of any kind
~ increasing my water intake
~ reach my daily step goal
~ continue the things mentioned above

and I know I can continue on this road to getting healthier physically, emotionally and spiritually by claiming

that everything I do, I do to show God’s love to myself and to those I come into contact with!
Because I believe one of the purposes of my life is to be an encourager!

Do you believe you have a purpose in this life?
Do you have a scripture verse you cling to during hard times?
