Reason to rejoice

Sunday, November 6, 2005

I had a great start of the week. Although I'm working I still had a chance to go to church at 11 a.m. and receive Word and encouragement from God. I'm thankful for all God has done for me today and I always be. After church my friend Sendy and I went to the Chinese restaurant. At first I thought I'd only get soup, but we decided to sit in and this is what I ate:
1 hot wing
1 egg roll
1 1/2 cup of hot and sour soup
4 pieces of general tso's chicken
3 sesame shrimp
1/2 green beans and carrots steam veggies
1/4 cup of hot cabbage salad
For the first time I didn't pig out!!! It's a reason to really rejoice. This week I ate out a lot and had parties and etc. For the first time I passed the test of self-control in a long time. This is a reason to rejoice! This is more important than my weigh in tomorrow. What are numbers when I can't control what I eat? Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit! Read the book of Galatians when you can :)
