I have been trying to honor God by treating my body as a temple.  To do this I have to deny my flesh of many desires, like bread, cookies, and chips.  Somedays it is really hard! My body will crave foods I don’t normally crave, and my mind will even start trying to justify giving in.  

Have you ever dealt with that?

Thankfully, there is grace for the situations when I fail, but what is even greater is the joy when I succeed.  God created us for His glory so when we fulfill our purpose, it brings us closer to Him than ever before. I have decided that instead of thinking about what I am sacrificing, I will instead think about what I am gaining – a more beautiful and intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father.
