Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way

Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” -Unknown

ย  For awhile, I struggled with the attempts to follow a balanced diet…I “eyeballed” every meal portion but I knew deep down…deep, DEEP down (hidden underneath all those blue corn chips that I ate ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒฝ), that if I followed the Nutritional Balancing program exactly, I would have a higher chance of healing faster…but this was hard for me to discipline myself.

I prayed to God, asking Him for the strength to overcome/stop these cravings that made my unbalanced diet worse. If it wasn’t overeating on meat๐Ÿ—, then it was grains๐Ÿš, if it wasn’t grains ๐ŸŒฝ, it was fruit๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ. For some reason I could not balance these foods…there was “a little voice” telling me to do things that would help me overcome my addictions, but what was said would require my action. Ha. That was not what I wanted! I wanted these cravings to just disappear…

After many months, I got tired of gorging myself, getting sick, feeling guilty, then drowning my sorrows by starting this vicious cycle again. I finally decided to change and follow the diet and guess what?! My cravings are dwindling!

The word that has been whispered to me by the “still but small voice” is “will.” What is will? According to Wordnik.com, will is the mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses or decides upon a course of action. Hmmm…I wonder what the Bible says about “will.”

“Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.โ€ Matt. 26:41

Is it not the same with sin? Do we not want it to just disappear instead of having to deal with it? To deny oneself and take up our cross? God gave us free choice…are we willing?

  1. Great post! I’ve struggled with hormone-related weight gain and was hugely blessed by the Fast Metabolism program by Haylie Pomroy, http://www.fastmetabolism.com, and by learning that the amazing way God made us, our bodies will indeed balance out cravings and overweight issues, but yes we’ve still gotta DO ‘the stuff’…’the work’ and eat in a balanced way.
