November 7

Philippians 4:19 - NLT
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

It really wasn't fair that so many thin people couldn't understand what it meant to be fat. Patty got mad when skinny friends chastised her for not sticking to her diet better. What did they know? Patty was always so thankful to God for what weight she'd been able to lose already that she could never understand why her friends put her down. Didn't they know what she had to sacrifice? Whenever Patty got mad at her friends, she asked God to help calm her down. His peace filled her heart, and she was able to relax. God had done so much for her while she dieted. Too bad her friends couldn't see it.

Today's Thought: God is with me when it feels like the world is against me!


Today's Tip:  Health and Diet
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples, applesauce, and apple juice contain pectin, phenolic compounds and flavonoids. Pectin may lower blood cholesterol levels because it’s a component of fiber, while phenolic compounds may act as antioxidants against LDL cholesterol (the bad kind). The flavonoids are recognized for extending the action of vitamin C. So maybe there is truth to that old saying!
