All the promises of God find their Yes in Him. That is why we utter the Amen through Him, to the glory of God.
II Corinthians 1:20
A glimpse of glory--a glimpse of My glory has been vouchsafed to you. There are yet more glorious realities to dawn, but your sight is still obscured by sin and its consequences. Yet the glimpse of glory you have seen is a lodestone to draw you toward the heavenly realm. Here you may have foretastes--but only foretastes of that which lies beyond. It is necessary to plod the mundane paths of your earthly life to prepare you for what I have prepared for you. Be of good cheer. They who put their trust in Me will not be confounded.
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!"
