Super Simple Sunday

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
So what are we doing with our faith? To build faith is like our bodies, we have to eat right and exercise. We eat right by what we listen to, and what we read, or watch. We exercise by doing something.

It's not hard to eat the good stuff, but it's real hard not to eat the bad stuff. It is easy to eat the salad for lunch, if we can add the dessert after it. It is a bit harder to feed the spirit, if we eat any bad, it ruins the good. So we have to be careful what we see, and hear.

With exercise very few people do it, because it is fun.
Most often we do it, because we want to feel better. So it is with our faith. We have to decide to do it! When we face a fear, we grab faith by the hand, and walk on. It will get easier each time.

Like it is with our bodies, it is hard to eat right and exercise, in our spirit.

Blessings Denise & hope you are enjoying a SUPER SUNDAY!

Your scripture from Romans is sobering! But all your words are so
SUPER in wisdom!!! Excellent comparisons! Many of these thoughts go well with the Memory verse of the week from Beth's B.I.B.L.E.!

You're so right & so wise! I needed all of this...and now to apply it!
Exercise & eat I sit here with a bag of lemon flavored fritos & a DP! Great diet, huh?
I guess I need a supernatural strength to resist and get out and walk instead of blogging finger exercises!!!

Praying that you are off for a SUPER SUNDAY!!! ENJOY & thanks for being such a faithful friend & participant in SUPER SUNDAY & MISSION 4 MONDAY & over at Beth's, too...every day, every are

OUCH!!! I really need to work on this. I love to eat desserts...
I don't mind the exercise if I have someone doing it with me. I have not thought about this with scripture on faith. Girl, I have alot to ponder!
Thanks for sharing,
