Rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His glory is revealed. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
I Peter 4:13-14

Not in the height of elation is true joy to be found, My son, but in the quiet places of the heart. Too much "happiness" tends to make you giddy and unwise. A more somber scene is safer for you.Yet I know your longing for "joy unspeakable and full of glory." I know how hard it is for you to allow gladness to drive away shadows of doubt and fear. So I bid you, child, to draw near to My heart. Do not worry about details of feelings, and avoid introspection about your motives. I will attend to all that. I want you to be a child of the upward look. I want you to seek My face, My merciful visage in all the circumstances of your day. This will take concentration and focus--because it is so new to you. But do try!

from Echoes of Eternity: Listening to the Father (Volume II)

A Word from Carol:

"I often hear this question: Why a "faith-based" diet program? Or even, what does "faith" have to do with dieting?

My quest in the early days of this journey was to learn how to apply the faith I had in God -- the faith that believed he could move mountains and that he kept my life in balance -- and apply it to my daily struggles. Each of us struggles; my struggles were primarily with my weight, my self-image, and my self-worth. I wanted to take my spiritual beliefs and put them to work in my daily life.

I knew beyond any doubt that God cared about everything I was concerned about. The Bible says that he cares about sparrows, and even about the hair on your head! So why wouldn't God care about my struggles with eating? While asking that question, I looked up at a Sunday school bulletin board and a simple sign that read, "God Has the Answer." I knew then and there that I had to incorporate God fully and completely into the nitty-gritty details of my daily life.

Does God have answers? Yes, he does. He has answers for all of our needs. We just have to learn how to listen, and believe. That's your first challenge as you go forward with the 3D plan!"
