Day 14 ~ Grace Filled Food Freedom

May be an image of text that says 'Day 14 I believe that Your grace is enough, Lord, but I forget so easily. let my shortcomings steal my joy and I stay stuck in self- condemnation too long. Help me to see when I'm trying to earn that which has already been given to me, so that I can walk in the Spirit of life. GRACE FILLED PLATES'

Day 14: Is Your Eating “Good Enough”?

VERSE:“Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” Galatians 3:3 ESV

READ: Galatians 3:1-6

EXCERPT: If your eating is draining your joy and drowning you in condemnation, it’s time for a grace check!• Are you trying to earn God’s favor by eating well?• Is condemnation a familiar feeling?• Do you believe your actions are more impactful in God’s eyes than Christ’s?

GRACE IN ACTION:
Take some time today to examine your thoughts about God and your eating. How do you think your “good” and “bad” food days alter His opinion of you and His blessings on you? Then, determine if your automatic thoughts are true or false based on the Word of God.

************
The first two lines in the devotion today really jumped out at me
“I believe your grace is enough Lord, I forget so easily. I let my shortcomings steal my joy and I stay stuck in self-condemnation too long!”

I have always been a black/white person, it’s all or nothing.
I am learning though that when it comes to food and eating, just like there is not a good food or a bad food, it’s all food.
That it’s okay to have one or two cookies, but not the whole package!
So often when it comes to eating or should I say dieting…it’s like I made it through three days but that fourth day I couldn’t stop eating everything in site…just because I ate two cookies and thought “what the heck” so I would eat the whole package.

One thing that I have been learning through time in the Word, following NOOM, reviewing each of the daily devotions that
1. stay in the moment
2. focus on the right now
3. trust God and my heart
4. and remember every day is a new day!!!
5. and that God’s mercies are new every day.

What do you do to help you stay focused?
Do you struggle with an all or nothing outlook? If so, how do you change your thinking?
