One Little Piece of Cake Please......Not!!!


It happened again. I went to a pot luck tonight and told myself I could have just a “small piece of cake” and nothing more. Ok….I had my one piece of cake……and two cookies…..and a small piece of sponge cake L
I know what some of you are saying (at least the skinny ones sitting there eating your pealed apple as your big “ treat” of the day…..”she really needs to get control of herself and be healthy like me. If I can do it, she can”.) OK, is there a habit or addiction you need to get under control? I’m not trying to justify my bad habit by calling out yours but…..
Do you bite your nails, smoke, take drugs (illegal that is), have more clothes/shoes  in your closet than you need( think of all the times you need retail therapy for yourself) , pull your hair out,  procrastinate, overeat, drink (alcohol that is. If you want a “cold one” there’s ice water in the fridge ), complain a lot, have unforgiveness, obsess, do too much of an activity that your work/home life/family suffers (eg. Watch too much TV or computer usage), sexual promiscuity, under eating, AND the list could go on.
We all have our bad habits. Some are just easier to hide from people than others. Let’s be encouragers of one another. Cheer and help your friend that’s trying to lose weight instead of giving her a box of chocolates  as gift, pray and be by the side of someone who needs your physical presence  to kick the habit of….. (You fill in the blank here). Also, don’t feel ashamed to ask for help from your friends and family who you know will support, help and cheer you on.
Here’s a couple of my fav Bible verses:
Psalm 55:22
 22 Give your burdens to the LORD,
      and he will take care of you.
      He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
Let’s cheer, pray and encourage each other on and depend on Him Who is able to keep us J

We all have made and will make mistakes. Let’s try and help each other when those times get tough no matter what the habit or addiction.
