Moderation or self-restraint, especially in eating and drinking; abstinence. I have to be honest, this is one of the hardest things for me to do. I can sit here and give you all types of excuses, I’m stressed because of my housing and financial situation, or I am having a hard time dealing with the changes in SC or the fact that I am alone, or people are crapping on me a lot of times, or I’m having a hard time trying to discern who cares about me and who doesn’t and who can I trust? But the fact is, I need to start straightening up and learning how to do moderation and stop all the sugar or else I’ll be right back where i was a year ago–not walking. AIl the things I’ve been through and I can’t give up sugar and overeating? I do it almost every day. Stress is the hardest thing, which is why I try to stay away from a lot of people and most of them are family members amazingly I believe in people more now and still give people a chance to surprise me and be a good friend.
I can go for a day or two maybe longer without food, but then it’s like once I get it, then I have to start over doing it again. I know I’m not alone in this. It’s the one things we can always justify. “Well, ya gotta eat” we say, but we don’t have to eat constantly, big portions, or certain foods period. We don’t have to eat late at night…etc you get the point.
The closer we get to being spirit disciplined and doing what God wants us to do, the more useful we can be for Him and for each other.
Thanks so much for reading!
