Devotional for Dieters, with Dan Dick

Saturday, July 11, 2015

1 Corinthians 7:17
But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. . .

Karen got so angry. Her friend Angie had started her diet at the same time Karen began. They had shopped together, eaten to-gether, exercised together, but Angie had lost seven pounds more. It wasn't fair. What was the use of dieting when she couldn't lose weight as fast as her friend? She put forth the same effort, but got less reward. God has made each of His children differently. No two are exactly alike. We are called by God to do our best with what we are given. We may not have the same results on our diet that others have on theirs, but that's okay. God will bless us for what we do and that's what really counts.

Today's thought: God will help me lose my weight without losing my mind!

    emoticon God has created each of us different and that is a great thing. Keep doing our best for Him. That is what is keeping me on the straight and narrow.
    I try very hard not to compare myself to anyone else cause I know each is different and their journey is different then mine, weight and inches included.
    Thanks so much for sharing and have a blessed weekend.
