1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I am going out of my mind trying to figure out what is making me itch so bad. It really is driving me nuts and is driving my husband crazy as well. He seems to breeze through every thing he eats and never has to diet. While I on the other hand has to struggled my with every thing, including what I use to wash my clothes in. At first, everyone assumed I was exaggerating about my allergies. Then they start witnessing them first hand. What they don't realize is how depressing they can make me. Like tonight, the itching just won't let up. I even took 2 Benedryl and a cool shower. To no avail, I am still itching. Now this is where my faith in Christ comes in and trust me this is the only thing that has gotten me through all of this. CHRIST, His everlasting Love. I have even been cheating on my eating plan, but it is time to get off of this self pity party and buck up. I need to turn it over completely to Jesus and let Him begin the healing plan. The more I turn over to Jesus the more healing and the more control of my weight I will have. I can never give up on that promise Christ has made to us. ( Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.) I finally discovered that only one thing makes a difference from the rest of the world: We are Christians. We need to share our faith with the others so they to can cast all their cares on the Lord, and God can help them face all their trials and temptations. Then "Keep Walking With Jesus" will not only loose weight, they gained their faith!

Today's thought: As we cast our cares on God, He casts His love on us!

    Good morning dear heart. I have enjoyed your verse this morning. I too have found the more I hand over to Jesus the more he becomes a part of my life. including losing weight. He tells us as well not to worry about tomorrow....I believe that and I know you do as well. Have a blessed day ~ Donna
