I call on you to walk me through the struggle between my immediate needs and my long-term needs.
When I am tempted to complain, reliving the negativity in my life, I call on you to silence me and show me all of my life’s good.
When I am tempted to skip meals due to forgetfulness or inconvenience, I call on you to make me stop and eat!
When tempted by unhealthy food and drink, I call on you to help me choose alternatives.
Grace, remind me that immediate satisfaction is fleeting.
Only by playing the long game may I feed my soul.
Amen/So be it!
