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.
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.
I’ve done Bible study on hope and trusting God, but I haven’t really studied faith. So tonight that was my topic. I would like to mention quickly that Hebrews is an awesome chapter and most of my favorite verses on faith come from it.
Lemme slap the Biblical definition on ya real fast: Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
So much of the Christian faith is… based on faith lol. But a lot of people don’t really understand. Being Christian doesn’t mean forcing our views on others to piss people off. Though, there are some Christians who probably get off on that.
