Devotional for Dieters, with Dan Dick

Romans 8:18
For I reckon that sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us.

Jimmy was fascinated by the cocoon. He watched the caterpillar work on its new home for hours. Everyday he came in to look at the cocoon. When the monarch butterfly finally emerged, Jimmy was delighted. God works some amazing miracles in nature. It shouldn't be so hard to believe that He will work such miracles in the lives of His people. Losing weight might not seem like a miracle, but for those who struggle with their weight, it often feels as if only a miracle will suffice. If God can transform a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly, He certainly can help us when all we want is to lose weight.

Today's thought: I am one of God's miracles, and He will help me be my best!

    Thank you so much for sharing. I thank God for caring me when I can't seem to get it straight. Some days the struggle is pretty hard but through Christ Jesus all things are possible, as long as we do are part.

    Amen, Sister. Awesome. Thank you for reminding us of his love for us. You know how I feel about caterpillars but if my Lord can turn that into a beautiful butterfly, I do believe he can handle all our blemishes as well. Thank you.
