Choices...

This weekend was a weekend in choices...Do I...

sit on my bottom and let my kids watch CN...(which I hate or) do I...


take them to Awana to learn about God.


Do I take some time out to read and study God's word on a Saturday afternoon or 

hang out with friends (which is always so fun.)
That's my sister to the right of me...(I'm in the middle...hiding in black)


I'm working off that weight so do I ...
eat healthy raw food (which was delicious, organic and vegan) or do I...


endulge in something a little more tempting...
(o.k. I had a strawberry too!  I can't resist white chocolate)


It's so hard to make the RIGHT choices, when you're tempted!

That's where God steps in!

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

God is so faithful...every choice, temptation, or situation in your life is common to you and me. He gives us the strength to bear what we're going through.  Our "problems" aren't unique.  You have a sword...Ephesians 6:17...
the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Have a blessed Monday!
(BTW...I did all of the above except let my boys watch CN...that's just a no no!.
..and get ready folks...tomorrow is Taming the Tongue Tuesday!)

That "healthy raw food" looks gross; I hope you made the "right" choice!
I think the strawberries were pretty healthy too. Just a smidge of chocolate on each one. :)

What a great post, Lorrie!! Loved the pictures too!

That's right..God will never give us more than we can handle. And even when we think we are handling things, it's really Him equipping us!

So true! In my journey of weightloss I have to keep reminding myself of that!

Yes, life is full of choices. What a tough decision deciding what to do!! I try my best to go w/ God; on the days I get off track, I pray :)

Choices, choices, choices....auuuugh!
My husband and I walked four miles tonight and now I'm hungry. Hmmm...do I eat yogurt or a Snickers? I think I'll go to bed because I want the Snickers!
