No good thing does the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in Thee!
Psalm 84:11b-12

My ear is always open to the cry of My children. None calls to Me in vain. Your cries and prayers are heard and laid up--deposited in My heart--and I will not forget them. I have committed Myself to be a prayer-hearer. You have come late to the place of prayer. Although you learned early that I answer prayer, you did not grow in true prayer. For you it was a cry in a tight spot. It is meant to be more--much more than a cry for help in desperation. Yet even that I do not despise, because I know it can lead on beyond itself. True prayer still takes place in the secret place where we can commune as Friend with friend. Treasure it, My son, and grow in it.

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!"
