Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Showers of blessing! It is My joy to shower blessings on My children. It is My joy to see a soul growing in My image and likeness. These things you cannot see clearly. But I tell you that such a process is going on and must go on. Look for the showers of blessing, My child. Pray for them, not only for yourself, but for those I have laid on your heart. Showers of blessing! Let your prayers "unlock" the heavens, that all may be blessed, and My joy may be completed in yours.

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!"
