To all the bars I've loved before...

...CHOCOLATE BARS, that is. This Beth Moore Bible study is really challenging me. [BTW-I did not have my homework this work but it is the first time and I may kill myself to prevent it from happening again and the topic was STUFF(how funny is that I had no time for the lesson on stuff because of all my stuff-LOL!)] (Parenthesis within brackets-Janice you've gone tooooo far!) Anyway, this Daniel series is stepping all over my toes and because I am weird, I love it. I love to hear Godly truth. I hunger for it. There are so many Christians who just won't take a stand against sin and try to call our sin something else so we don't have to cut it out (I said WE there!!)

I try to act like my overeating sugar love is not sin. I try to act like the TV being my "relaxation" is somehow OK because everybody else overeats while watching TV too. As much as I hate it, it might be ok for them, but God is dealing with me on TV and sugar and I am rebelling like crazy. Lately it seems as though I cannot get enough sugar and even mid-snack-I want more. Going on sugar busters seems to have intensified my craving for sugar to a staggering level after cheating the first time. I shake my head at drug use and wonder how someone could make that choice as I am brought to my knees by a twinkie.(I think there is a speck and plank reference ther!) I am doing better with TV all day before the kids go to bed. After 8PM though I become a crazy woman with a remote in one hand and a snack in the other.

Soooo Beth Moore kind of "got into my business" today when she was talking about staying away from some things all together. She also delivered me from the evil one when she said "objects that have been used for unholy things can again become holy". There is alot of power in that statement and I KNOW it is Godly truth. Frankly, I am just tired of the way I feel. I covet your prayers for me cause there is a whole lot more "stuff" I am dealing with than just the clutter in my home. The clutter in my brain and on my butt need to be dealt with as well.

I don't know if you're considering the bizarre step of totally getting rid of the tv, but you can know there other people that crazy, too. We haven't owned a tv since 2003 and haven't missed it. (I take that back, I did miss watching the Olympics, but it passed.) When we had a tv, I watched it a lot. When it broke we made the decision not to replace it (you wouldn't believe how many tvs we've refused since then. Apparently it's hard for some people to fathom.) But really, when it's not there it's not a temptation. I think about the last three years now that was one of the best decisions our little family has made.

LOL--I haven't gotten rid of the TV completely, but we don't watch TV programming. We keep the TV mostly to watch DVD's and VHS's that we deem appropriate. We also went through withdrawal for it, but now, I don't feel the draw. I'd just as soon the kids not see what's on there these days anyway.

But you wouldn't believe how shocked people are when I tell them that we don't really watch TV at home. LOL.

I'm with you on the sugar addiction, though.
