30/30 Challenge: Day 27

women's devotional bible #3030challenge

If you read my post Oh, Hamburgers, then you know I have a difficult time saying no to yummy food after bland dieting.

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
(Hebrews 12:11)

The fruit of righteousness? Why not the Milano dark chocolate cookies of righteousness? 😥

Haha, just a little joke. But seriously.

Now I fully understand what Paul meant when he said, “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” (Romans 7:15)

I know what I need to do to obtain the results I want, but instead I indulge in stuff that sets me back. Ugh.

  • A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)
  • Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness. (1 Timothy 4:7)
  • Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regards to its lusts. (Romans 13:14)

The thing about self-discipline is that it’s not limited to one aspect of life. If I can show restraint most areas, then there’s really no excuse for me to have such a hard time with midnight snacking.

So watch out moist mini blueberry muffins who taunt me in the evening when I’m weakest… I’m coming for you. Or rather, I’m not! 😉

  1. Awww I’m sorry XP but if it’s any consolation I believe Jesus was accused of drinking and eating too much during His time on earth, too. So we can always use that excuse lol especially on Margarita Mondays and Taco Tuesdays (:
