Changing my diet and habits to honor God...

I am convicted today by the following scripture:

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I have to admit I am not a disciplined person. I beat myself up because of it sometimes. I have many friends who honor their bodies with good nutrition and wouldn't think about intentionaly introducing toxins into their bodies with the likes of Diet Coke. I love Diet Coke. I love Starbucks Frappuccinos!! I have managed to severely cut back on the Frappuccinos but the Diet Coke is going to take awhile and some effort. I need help with it so I am asking my friends to be praying I will lose my desire for these "evil" beverages.

I am grateful today for Jim Miller giving me permission to publish his story of surviving cancer by using a very strict organic vegetable diet. Read his inspiring story on the "Inspiration" page. See the tab under the title.
