Carbs! I’ve had a love hate relationship with them forever. I want them, just a little, but as soon as I get just a little it seems like they grab me a take me captive. I can’t stop. I’m picking up more and more. And more and more. I don’t know, maybe not all carbs, but there are quite a bit of them that have that affect on me. Bread especially, even some fruit, and of course potatoes and pasta. It’s like, if I stop no problem; but once I start just a little I lose all ability to stop. Not asking for advise on this, just sayin’
I try to substitute for wheat flour or brown rice or sweet potatoes. That helps. But the white stuff is just brutal!
The untarnished truth is I want carbs to be my friend. I want carbs to like me enough to not bother me after I’ve had 1 spoonful or 1 serving. But it doesn’t play fair. It comes across looking innocent, smooth creamy, a small unassuming side dish… and the next thing I know it has me captive.
What to do…
On decisions, big or small when I’m feeling torn, I read something today that says I should relinquish the decision and take it to God. Should I eat it or shouldn’t… God what do you think I should do? I want some or I want more but I don’t need it, but it’s calling me… God can you stop the noise? Powerful Almighty God – certainly you are more powerful then the pull of the Peanut butter on white bread — can you please stop the pull…
I should also relinquish the decision of who to sale this car to. I should also relinquish the deicison of what to use the money from the car sale on, when my husband and I have different priorities. I place another ad, I put a sign on the car and trust him for the results. I pray thy will be done for how it is to be disburse, I pray for peace and agreement with my husband I. I relinquish all of theses – because this is what I really want to sedate.
Thanks for letting me share.
