Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the lamb. These are true words of God.
The thoughts that I give you carry with them the seed of life. They may seem quite ordinary, but their quality is hidden within. You shall know the truth of this more and more as time goes on. I want you to be more responsive to these thoughts and to respect them more highly. Your stubborn will resists Me and this hinders your progress greatly. Pray specifically that My will shall prevail over yours, and that My thoughts will "expel" yours.
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!"
