Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food." Romans 14:20a (NIV
I receive a weekly e-mail from the Pastor of a church we visit sometimes on vacation....this was todays...I thought the versus at the bottom may help you...
Here's something to think about from Dr. Dale Meyer. I pray it is a timely
encouragement for you.
In "Standing on the Promises", Susan Wales quotes a Vicki Baum: "You don't
get ulcers from what you eat. Your get them from what's eating you." (p.
What's eating you this Wednesday morning? Take this minute to apply some
promises from God to your worries.
"Turn your burdens over to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will
never let the righteous person stumble." (Psalm 55:22)
"Thanks be to the Lord, who daily carries our burdens for us. God is our
salvation." (Psalm 68:19)
"When I worried about many things, Your assuring words soothed my soul."
"My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ
Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
Lord Jesus, sometimes my worries consume me. As You told Martha, tell me
now: One thing is needful, the Word of promise. Remind me that in You all
the comforting promises of God are "Yea" and "Amen."
GARY ~ I think the good doctor has a great point there, and could very well have been talking about weight issues as ulcers. I believe many people overeat becuz something is bothering or stressing them in their lives. Most of us are already experts on eating healthy foods now, but we need to be released of past hurts and today's stresses, and learn how to give those burdens to GOD and leave them there ...
I like Psalm 55:22 for the same reason ~ I have a note on my desk that says: YESTERDAY ENDED LAST NIGHT, so let it go ...
Another verse I like is Phil 4:13 ~ "I CAN do ALL things through CHRIST, who strengthens me!"
Galatians 5:22/23 ~ The fruits of the Spirit are Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering (Patience), Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control ... I tell myself this -- "I HAVE self-control; so I AM blessed!"
"Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful."
I Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
One of my very favorite scriptures that I feel in my spirit, my heart daily is "Be still and know that I am God", and of course the 23rd Psalm has always been special to me as my Pappy recited it to me often.
There is a prayer that I gets me through each day, that I feel prepares me to face the day and the things that may lay in my path.
Dear Lord I pray...,
Please, as I enter into this new day with which you have blessed me..
Bind my mind to the mind of Jesus Christ
Bind my will to the will of God and
Bind my feet to the paths of righteousness.
Destroy wrong thought patterns, wrong attitudes, wrong habits and the strongholds that protect them in and around me Dear Lord. Amen.
I pray that these may speak to your heart in the way that God intends if that so be His will...

I love Lamentations 3:58 from the Amplified Bible O Lord you have pleaded the causes of my soul, You have managed my affairs and You have protected my person and my rights, you have rescued and redeemed my life!
That settles my spirit when I start to get anxious about life.
