Finding the Determination

Breaking Free.  A Journey to Being Truly Satisfied.
Day 8

Bible Passages: Psalm 5, Ephesians 6:18, Jude 20, Philippians 4:4-7

“God gave us the gift of prayer to turn our times of desperation into relationship opportunities with Him. This cycle is far more promising than distancing ourselves from His goodness with our own sense of self-loathing and defeat.” –Made to Crave 21 day Challenge

Today I pray for a spirit of determination.  I want to be well aware that I do not walk alone and that this struggle with food is far from over.  Temptation and weakness will come, but turning to prayer and God’s word and sure fire ways to turn this temporary struggle into a lasting benefit.  God desires a deep relationship with us, one that is growing and shaping us.  How much more will it do that if in our every trouble we turn to him not as a last resort but as our first line of defense?  Now that is something to get excited about.  I love happy endings.  I am a sucker for a good story where good triumphs over evil.  Today I choose to let God be the knight in shining armor.  I have been a lousy hero in my story.  It’s time for the big guns!
