hou hast said, "Seek ye My face." My heart says to Thee, "Thy face, Lord, do I seek." Hide not Thy face from me. Turn not Thy servant away in anger, Thou who hast been my help. Cast me not off, forsake me not, O God of my salvation!
There are no easy answers to the perplexities you face. There is only one answer--My sovereign grace. As light emerges from the east and lightens the whole sky, so My grace "with healing in its wings" comes to you. The perplexities remain--but you do not have to be bound to them nor in them. They are smaller than they seem, and much less powerful than they appear. The light of grace will help you see them more clearly.

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!"
