Today's devotional from Made to Crave talked about James 1:2 "Consider it pure joy..whenever you face trials of many kinds." "On your healthy eating journey there will be times when you face trials. You may not have considered them trials in the past. But when you're tempted to stray from the commitment to make healthier choices it is a trial."
I had never connected this verse to weight loss before. I haven't thought of it as a joy to face the trial of deciding between healthy food or junk food. Every time I face this moment I need to "consider it".
"We have to consider and park our minds on the truth that our triumph in this trial matters. Triumph in this choice will produce a blessing. According to James, the blessing we have to consider is this 'that you may be mature and complete'"
" I want to be mature and complete... Therefore I persevere in the midst of this decision. I will choose the better option."
