Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2

Have you ever wondered where that voice inside your head came from and who in the world gave it permission talk to you in the first place?  How did we get to the point where we are always negotiating or justifying our decisions with it?  Or even contemplating our future?  And who controls this voice anyway?  Does God speak to me through this voice?  Certainly these are all good questions and ones that I don’t have a definitive answer to, but I do think the biggest contributor is our own thoughts and contemplations.  I also think that for a lot of people our mind or this so-called ‘voice inside’ has developed into a tool for self-criticism and judgment towards other people.  We have to learn to control this voice or it will control us.

I know that we have already touched on this subject before but we have to continue to bring to light the problems that have the biggest impact on us and the solutions to defeat them.  So this idea of our struggle with our own thoughts is just that, it’s a battle we fight in our mind and the war is ultimately won through self-discipline.  Just as the verse above says “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” it is through Christ that we can restore our thoughts.  Our best weapon for this battle is the word of God and we must spend time in it each day and allow His words and knowledge to fill this voice in our mind.  It will be through prayer and meditation on His word that we hear the voice of God and see His restorative power.

This is a devotional out of my Healthy Lifestyle class, I Don't Do Diet. 


You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20

I’m going to ask you to think back to your grade school and high school days when your teachers were telling you that you couldn’t learn history by just putting the book under your pillow at night in hopes of the knowledge just seeping in while you sleep.  They were trying to get you to realize that at some point you would have to pick up the book and study the material to learn it.  The same concept is true of your goal to living a healthy lifestyle and becoming physically fit.

As tempting as it seems we have to be careful that we don’t carry this childhood concept into adulthood because exercise doesn’t happen by osmosis.  I have come across many people that could walk into any health club and teach a class on proper exercise technique and nutrition but they still struggle with holding themselves accountable to the daily routine that gets it done.  They have become rich in knowledge but poor in the application of that knowledge.  Remember that the win is in the ‘doing’ not in the ‘knowing or learning.’

What To Eat at Fast Food Places...Wendy's

Wendy's is another place I don’t eat at. It has a menu with few healthy options.
Like most fast food places, (there) really isn’t anything “clean” to eat here with the exception of the plain baked potato.
If you have to eat here, make smart choices. Choose a salad and vinaigrette dressings or grilled chicken. If you do choose a sandwich, as with the other fast food places, take off ½ the bun and don’t get the fries!!

Stick with the Garden
