"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" 
 1 Corinthians 6:19
Okay, Christmas feasting is over. How many of you are beating yourself up for eating all the goodies or even some of the goodies that you ate during Christmas? All I can say is, STOP IT!
God isn't mad at you. He uses your body as a temple. Do you really think He would be angry at you for filling the temple with food? I don't.
God gave us food, all kinds of food. No where in the bible have I read thou shall not eat cake, pie, candy or Mama's yams. He gave us these foods to eat. So I really don't believe there is any food that is off limits. Now having said that I also don't believe we should stuff ourselves and go crazy with our eating. We are the temple of God and should keep it clean. When we over fill it with food, it becomes like an overstuffed building and looks cluttered.
So now that you know He isn't angry with you, that your body is His temple and your job is to keep it clean, move on.
It's a new day, week, month, and soon to be year. So don't beat yourself up or allow Satan to beat you up for the way you ate during Christmas feast. God isn't mad at you so you shouldn't be either.
Let's get back to the business at hand and that's losing weight so that we can get our temple clean and clutter free of excess fat.


  1. Thank you Rhonda for your words of encouragement. I so desperately want to change my habits and lose weight for good. I want so bad to be at a healthy weight for my body. I think about it day and night yet I haven't been successful. I wake everyday to God another day of dealing with the temptations of FOOD! I so tired of being controlled by it. But, I look forward to this year being of Change for me and those who struggle as myself.

  2. Teresa, I totally understand what you are saying. Food is a temptation for many people, myself included but I do believe that if we focus on God and less on food, we will succeed. Hang in there and please continue to comment. I'd love to know how you are doing :)

  3. I have thyroid problem, need prayer
