I loved this study and how it got me into God's Word! I came away with two really powerful things: 1. Abide in Christ. I saw that almost daily as I studied. 2. Self-Control is a fruit of the Spirit. I can't force it to grow any more than I can force a tree to grow. I can nurture it and try to strengthen it but really only the Spirit will grow it in me - I can ask Him to do that! Thank you for a great study!
I had been praying for wisdom regarding weight loss and over all health. I have had success following diets but have always gone back to old habits and regained the weight. I really feel that God directed me to the Grace Filled Plate website to join this study. Having one verse a day to focus on and really dig into made it doable for me. I know God used this study to help me get my thinking on the right track to turn to Him for my comfort instead of food. This study has helped me get back into God’s word and just take it one day (one meal) at a time. And to remember that my body is a temple for God and I do need to take the best care I can of it!
This study has been a huge help to me in every area of my life. After several months of struggling with my food choices, I’m finally back on track. There are so many things that have helped me. My prayer life is much improved. I think the things that pops up in my mind as I think about the entire study are (1) ask God for His help - He’s there to help you if you will ask and (2) focus on the the positives instead of the negatives.
Thank you so much for this wonderful Bible study, I have learned so much from it! I never realized how much was in the Bible about taking care of our health. The most important thing for me has been to reestablish my quiet time with God, it had gone completely out the window but now I look forward again to having fellowship with my Father. I have still so much to learn but with the help of the Holy Spirit I will go forward one little step at a time.
