In Your Anger Do Not Sin
Ephesians 4:26 says, "In your anger, do not sin." Yesterday was a victory in that area. I was really angry about a situation between my MIL and my daughter and it really frustrated me and stressed me out. But after a long cry to my husband, and a time of prayer to lay that issue at His feet...I did not sin. Sin in this case being turning to food and eating away my stress. I went home and could have ended up even more angry, because someone left dishes in the sink & counters and we had an ant battle. I just got to work cleaning it all up, and washing dishes, pots and wiping everything down. Afterwards, I pulled out some bell peppers, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and chopped it all up. I made a fabulous tuna fish salad loaded with my chopped veggies and a splash of red wine vinegar. Satisfying colors, texture and crunch. Jim had pizza. I admit, I had one bite of his pizza, but that was enough. No gluttony. No overindulging. Thank you God for being "enough and then some" last night. 12 pounds released!
