Knowing and Doing

The difference between knowing and doing…

I got honest and saw my addiction to sugar and bad carbs, this was my daily dilemma…

I was supposed to be losing weight, yet I had dessert. I needed to make healthy eating choices, yet I found myself at the Taco Bell drive thru …AGAIN!

Is it because I am weak willed and cannot control my sugar addiction?

Nope, it’s the fact that I continued to choose my selfish and self-centered will over seeking God’s will.

My heart KNOWS what I need to do, but my head does it anyway.

This is not only the difference between knowing and doing, but also why my character defects left unchecked keep me unhealthy and in self-will.

Do you have things you are doing that you know you should not be?...

Check your experience…

“Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character” Big Book Step 6, pg. 59

Lord, let us give you our weaknesses and temptations in return for strength and support to stay in Your will for us, AMEN.

I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.” Romans 7: 19

Have a blessed day Y’all!

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!

How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought?
