Ending strong

I know I already wrote today… but who makes the rules!? Right? So here I am just to say that I am ending my day strong… I ate 1237 calories today and I have a calorie deficit of about 1000 calories… I am ready for tomorrow… but celebrating today! And just like I said this morning… There’s new mercy each day … but just like I can’t dwell in my past mistakes and struggles… I can’t just “live out” of my past victories either… Each day has its own challenges… I can’t let my guard down just because of ONE Day…
This whole thing made me think of a Bible verses that I know apply to not worrying about the provision for each day… because God is the one who provides… And it’s been true in my life many times… BUT… I am seeing it in kind of a new light, applying it to my own “eating issues” and overcoming each day as it comes…

Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
