It was a good day as I listened for the growl and stopped before getting too full.
I ate small, wonderfully filling amounts. Read this from Elder Christofferson, Gen.Conf. Apr 2009. .
First, as we walk in obedience to the principles and commandmednts of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we enjoy a continual flow of blessings promised by God in His covenant with us. Those blessings provide the resources we need to act rather than simply be acted upon as we go through life. For example, the Lord's commandments in the Word of Wisdom regarding the care of our physical bodies bless us first and foremost with "wisdom and great treasures of knowledge. D&C 89:19.
Furthermore, they lead to a generally more healthy life and freedom from destructive addictions. Obedience gives us greater control over our lives, greater capacity to come and go , to work and create. ...our obedience to this gospel law enhances our capacity to deal with these challenges.
This message was meant for me to read today. It helped me a great deal to realize God has commanded me, Carol, to stop being a food addict and love on Him.
