6 Healthy Eating Go-To Scripts

January 13, 2014

It’s mid-January and if you’re anything like me those changes we decided to make that seemed so exciting January 1, don’t feel so thrilling today.

Have you been having any of these thoughts…

Why is this healthy eating thing such a challenge?

Why does this have to be my issue?

Why does the scale insist on revealing my secrets?

Should a Christian woman even worry about getting healthy?

I’ve already blown my healthy eating commitments this month, so I’ll just start next month. Or next year. Or never.

If any of these resonate with you, I can totally relate. I was stuck in such a cycle of defeat over this issue for years. And honestly, if I’m not careful, I can slip right back into a cycle of defeat so easily.

I’ve never craved a carrot stick in my whole life and don’t think I ever will.

That’s why I have to have Biblically-based healthy eating go-to scripts to help me. Maybe you’ll find these helpful as well. They are from my book, Made to Crave – satisfying life’s deepest desires with God not food.

It’s my gut honest look at the reality that God loves me just as I am no matter what the scale says. But He loves me too much to leave me in a state of defeat.

God made me to consume food, but food was never supposed to consume me.

I pray these scripts are as encouraging and helpful to you as they have been for me.

Healthy Eating Go-To Scripts

Today we are celebrating a milestone at Proverbs 31 Ministries. Over 30,000 have signed up to participate in our Made to Crave online Bible study. If you are looking for a group of women with whom to journey through the ups and downs of making healthy changes in your life, this is a great one to consider. All you need to do to join is:

* Buy your copy of the Made to Crave book here (or wherever the book is sold.) Or you can borrow it from a friend or check it out from your library.

* Sign up for the online Bible study here. There is no cost to join!

For more information on the book, Made to Crave, visit www.MadetoCrave.org by clicking here.

And if you leave a comment below telling me of a friend you’ll share this post with, I will pick five commenters to send a free copy of Made to Crave to!

    Sitting here at work and I get your email! Couldn’t have come at a better time! I have started with Weight Watchers online hoping to lose some of my poundage. I have 66 pounds to lose. This really inspired me to seek the help of our Lord!! Maybe this time I will not fail! Thanks, Lysa!

    I plan to tell my sister-in-law and two nieces. One of my nieces was just married earlier this year and the other plans to be married later this fall. Thinking of all the stress they have had and will have, that they may need help in the turning to God instead of food. ( I know I do and I have not or will not be planning weddings like they have!)

    My dear friend Janet. Janet was such a gift to me when I moved to GA 8 years ago. I was a single mom left to take care two small children. God moved us to GA where my family lived which was wonderful however leaving my friends behind was not. Janet and I met at church in a women’s Sunday school class. She was single never married no children. She was from Zimbabwe and had this beautiful accent. She and I connected immediately. Although she had no children of her own, she loved mine as if they were hers and my girls loved her back. She even stayed overnight to help me when one of my daughters had eye surgery at the age of 3. Being a single mom and dad was not easy and many times it just helped to have someone there. Over the years, Janet and I have experienced the joy of watching each other get married. We even had the privilege of working together. Ill never forget the day she told me she and her husband were moving to FL. Janet has yet to have her own children but the lives of kids she has blessed is amazing. My children still look at her as a second momma. Ill never forget the Mothers Day one of my twins gave her the Mothers Day gift she made at church. Janet still has it to this day. We talk at least two times a week and of course keep up with each other on FB. It would be so neat if her and I could do this online study together. How awesome to be able to pray, share and grow together in Gods word even while being states away. I will always be thankful to God for putting Janet in my life. I could not have gotten through many things without her. True friendship is so hard to find. I have been blessed with a one of a kind friend.

    I started using/studying your Made to Crave book 2 years ago. I still go back to it when I need a “pep talk”! I love the go-to verses that you offer. They often make me read more of the before and after verses in my Bible! Thank you for your journey and sharing it with us so we can have hope to succeed! It is a daily—sometimes moment by moment choice to eat healthy. To honor God w the choices we make. One of my favorite prayers is: God, today please help me to make good choices for feeding my body. While YOU take care of feeding my soul, spirit and emotions. Cuz my food cannot do that!
    Thanks again, Lysa,
    Angie.

But, today is day one of my fast, and wouldn’t you know it would be hollering for my attention. I was just thinking to myself…”Why is this so hard?” And then I come across your email. Perfect!

    I’ve just forwarded this to my friend because the scriptures are so great for ANY challenge we are working on. I started the Made to Crave on January 1st (thought I would need a head start as I have a lot of ground to cover!) and although first few days were tough I managed to hang on by using these scriptures to encourage my choices. It has really made me focus on WHY I reached for cookies in times of stress rather than taking the situation to the Lord; my quiet times with Him are really refreshed Thank you Lysa for being so honest about what you went through.

    My sister has had a terrible time since my Mom passed away 2 years ago. She turns to food for comfort. Her doctor told her to get some weight off or she would die.

    I have purchased a few of your amazing Bible studies and led many women through your tools of bringing us all closer to The Lord. Reading what ” Made to Crave” is about really spoke volumes to me as a mom of a 4 and 6 year old- I am juggling a full time job and often find myself in what I call “quick bad snack” eating or fast food. Not all the time but often I will just grab what I can because of how busy we are. My studies consist of moms that are also in the same boat as I am and I am going to share this with them 🙂 thank you for yielding to His Spirit.

My friend said to me. “What is the point, I have just given up!” I hated to hear her say that because I think together we could do this!! We finished the “Unglued” Bible Study in November and I can say it is still making a difference in my life and hers, so I would like to somehow encourage her to try a biblical approach to weight management as well without offending her by asking. She is a baby Christian and has grown so much this last year!!!

It’s great to hear such uplifting and encouraging stories and they are always related to some personal situation – God is so awesome!

    Two of my friends and I have a group of 19 middle school girls we mentor and do missions projects with. Two of us leaders have purchased the book through our kindle apps, and have signed up to the web study. I would like the other of us 3 leaders to receive this book so she can do the study with us. She does not use the kindle. I feel this study could help us identify the crutches in our lives, so that we may better mentor the young ladies God, and their parents, have entrusted to us. I will most likely give the second book to one of the girls mothers. I will stick with the kindle, and share both copies if you chose me.

    I would share this with my mother as emotional eating is something that we struggle with together, but in different ways.

And I know that my body is His temple and I should be a better steward of this body and His gift of life, but, I think it would be easier to build an Ark all by myself than figure out meals on a tight budget for one person who lives alone…….

    I had bought myself a book when I first heard of this Bible study beginning. As I skimmed through it I felt moved to share the book with my grandparents. My grandfather just has gastric bypass in November of 2013, so I wrapped up the copy I had bought for myself and have it to them. I shared the book and Bible study with my mom and he has already read through and has begun her plan but plans to read through it again and participate in the Bible study. So the friend I plan to share it with is myself! I plan to be as kind to myslef as I am to others, and put myself first for once when it comes to my health.

    I am so ecstatic! I need the structure of a “led” bible study but as a working mom I struggle to find time to get all pretty’d up, fix a finger food to share and make it to Bible study on time – homework in hand a smile on my face! Now I can show up in my jammies while eating dinner (a bowl of cereal) and not have to worry about a babysitter, burning the finger food or if the dog chewed on my homework notepad! I look so put together when I am the only one in the room! I look forward to seeing God move in my life especially in this area as I know it is one of my biggest hindrances!

    Thank you for this opportunity and I loved hearing about how God developed this ministry. I was at the awesome conference you almost didn’t make in Clermont GA over the weekend! Thank you for being real with us and allowing us to relate!

    I have always struggled with food and eating. I have a dedication when it comes to working out, but I always give in to my food cravings or cannot seem to avoid “just a try” when food is put in front of me. Your advertisement for this bible study hit me hard when I read about your struggles and your finding God to be your fulfillment rather than food. I think your first “tip of the day” says it best. We should consume food and not let food consume us. 2 Corinthinians 12: 9-11 is a great verse to put on your fridge as a daily reminder that His grace is sufficient for us. I’m looking forward to this bible study for this and many other reasons.

    My amazing friend Schyler and I live 200 miles apart. The Online Bible Studies are an awesome tool for these two friends who CRAVE REVOLUTION in all aspects of our lives!

    I believe God is in the business of restoration, and He’s working to break us free from all forms of bondage!

    God is near the broken hearted! He’s healing poor body images and terrible eating habits. As we fill up on Him, remember…”When God is in it, there is no limit. It’s not over!”
    -Israel Houghton and New Breed

    If you pick this post, PLEASE give the book to my friend Schyler, (I’ll provide her information.)
    She deserves a REAL blessing like that!

    Thanks!

    I’m going to share this with my mother. She’s been up & down the scale so many times. She was a Weight Watcher’s director most of my life… Twice. Why twice? Because she gained all her weight back, had to loose it again… & its back again.
    & we need to break this family generational hold!

    I shared this Bible Study with my mom and a friend. Our family has always started the new year with the Daniels Fast, but always the day afterward we go back to our not so healthy way of eating because we feel like…we earned it. I’ve signed up for this Bible Study in hopes that after the Daniel Fast is over we will keep going on our healthier way of living. I can’t wait for this to begin!!!!

    I have invited friends to join me on the Made to Crave journey, maybe if I had the book to offer them if would encourage them to join me. Although eating is not a big issue for me I know that scriptures can apply to many different choices I make in my life. Thanks you Lysa for sharing your heart on this topic. God Bless the Proverbs 31 Ministry.

Then today I was so blessed when the realization hit me that I will not be alone, I will be joining thousands of sister’s in Christ to face this battle and grow closer to Jesus!

We want to spend as much time as possible teaching our kids and playing with them and goofing off and having fun, but we also want to be good examples of fit, healthy adults who take good eating and exercise seriously. We also want to have a good long life and to be there for our kids when they need us. It is a tough balance. I’m looking forward to reading more of your good tips.

    I’ve invited and encouraged my sister who lives 2000 miles away from me to join in on this study, Made to Crave. We are in contact with each other everyday and are such an encouragement to each other. We’ve tried exercising “together” and being accountability partners. But when it comes to taking care of our bodies, we are both struggling so much. My sis lives on a very frugal budget and as such does not have the extra funds to buy the book. Would you please give her the book? I know she would greatly benefit from reading it and participate in the study. Thank you for all you do!

    I will be sharing this Bible study with my 20 year old daughter. She is exceptionally introverted and I believe some of this trait is due to her being very overweight. I would like to help her shine her light for all to see by seeing God as the solution for all life’s trials.

    I have a dear friend that is “long distance” and we keep in touch and help to keep each other motivated via text, email, phone during our weight loss and general motherhood journies. She is a cancer survivor and weight loss has been very difficult for her since her the birth of her third baby (a miracle in itself). I have ordered her a copy of the book as a gift and have invited her to join us during the study. Looking forward to starting this weekend!

    I’ve told several of my friends about this study and cannot eat to begin. I love God and trust Him completely, but there is this saboteur in my head that allows me, almost encourages me to eat junk and eat when I’m not even hungry. It’s almost like I’m afraid to lose the weight and truly be physically attractive. This whole becoming single at 50 is really challenging, but I have to get healthy for the right reasons!

    There are a group of ladies I work with who are doing The Biggest Loser, and I forwarded the first link I received to them. What better way to start this journey than with God and help knowing we are not the only ones who struggle with this problem! There are two I am going to buy the books for, because they cannot afford it. I am soooo looking forward to this Bible study!

However, the only real failure I feel in my life is my lifelong battle with my weight. I’m obese and was just diagnosed with high blood pressure.

    I just had gastric sleeve surgery 5 weeks ago. I have been so emotional and having a hard time. I thought it would be easy and I would just pick right back up and go on. I have not. I saw several friends go through the surgery and did GREAT! Needless to say, I have not. I went to a women’s conference about 3 years back with the new church my husband and I began attending (he is a pastor) and saw Lysa speak. I bought her book Made To Crave. Well, it has sat on my shelf for 3 years until I finally gave it away (this year) for a Christmas present. A few weeks ago, I had 2 friends tell me about the online Bilble study for Made to Crave (of course I have already given my book away! LOL!). I felt led to get online and sign up. I have been so excited about it that I have told every lady friend that I have come in contact with about it!! I am really excited about turning this weight loss journey into being more about Jesus instead of more about my weight loss! Thanks for all you do for Christ ladies! We need more people in the world to step up and reach out to our ladies about living for Christ!

And although I do need Christ’s and your book to learn new eating habits……….I also just quit smoking, so, WOW, I must submit to my husband and not purchase anything. So, I am bluntly requesting a free copy of your book and possibly the study guide!, so this new year I will change, both for Our Lord and for my husband. Quit smoking, stop buying, lose weight……..ultimately to show my husband that with God’s strength, I can do anything. If The Lord should guide you, you have my email address if you’d like more information on me. I have printed out parts of your books “Becoming Spiritually Beautiful” and “Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe”. Thank you for your ministry. It MUST speak to so many women in need. Praise God! Lisa

    I’ve struggled with my weight since I was 7. I am now 34 and I want to be healthy for my family. This means I am going to have to shed some pounds. A lot of pounds. I blog about seeking after God’s purpose for my life and being intentional about life. I felt impressed upon to focus on my health this year and set a goal to loose 30 pounds in 2014. I am praying that this group will help me along this journey. I wish all the participants God’s blessings and direct guidance!

    A friend of mine on FB shared a link inviting all her friends to join her for an online Bible study…Made to Crave. After reading the information, this is a much needed answer of prayer for me. To be honest, I have already purchased the book and the conference calls. I shared my friends link to get more of our friends to join with us. I am so excited I couldn’t think of just one and had to share with all my friends. Sharing the book would be such a blessing for one of my friends.

    How funny, when I commented on the original blog, I said that I was thankful that you were having this contest, because I wanted to give the book to my aunt who is dieting and would definitely benefit from this book study, and then the contest says who would you share this with and it would be my Aunt Marcia, she’s a quadriplegic Who is getting too heavy for her bed and chair, and it’s hard for her caregiver to lift and move her, and so she started a diet. And we done hello mornings book studies today and Bible studies together, and I used the made to crave in a prism diet that I did through my church, and I’ve already bought the book, but I thought this would be perfect for her to go along with trying to diet right now. I was trying to get her to join this book study with me. So to win this book would be great! A real blessing.

    Thanks and blessings always,

    I never felt that I had a problem, but in the last year it has been revealed that I cannot do this on my own. A few years ago I lost 30lbs no problem. I looked and felt great! I gained all my weight back. I thought I was in control but obviously there is a greater issue here and I know now that ONLY with gods help will I be able to change my eating habits. He has shown me that yes, this needs to be addressed, but he will be right there beside me.

    As I sit here munching carrot sticks and hummus (a surprising choice given what foods I crave), I wanted to share my acquaintance, Tonya’s, story. She is an acquaintance of mine who was nominated by another friend through a Facebook ‘contest’ I had, searching for ‘extraordinary women’ whom I could encourage by giving them Thirty-One gifts (where our motto is ‘Celebrate, Encourage, Reward’). Tonya was adopted at four years old and grew up in a home where there were different foster kids joining and leaving their home. She attended Youth for Christ in our community as a high schooler, where she was in a small group with a wonderful leader (the woman friend who nominated her). Her small group leader has kept in close touch with her (Tonya is now 21 years old), and shared with me Tonya’s struggles with her weight and unemployment and how Tonya could use encouragement! I want Tonya to know, really know, that she was created in God’s image, and that she can do all things through Christ who strengthens her. She ‘won the contest’ in that she is getting some Thirty-One products and a sweet note to encourage her, and I would LOVE to include a copy of your book, Made to Crave. Thank you for your consideration!

    I am encouraging my daughter as well as all my FB friends to join in the study. The momentum is building! Can you believe someone gave me 10 lbs. Of Hershey kisses today? Tricky but greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!

    I have joined this Group for more insight into what God has planned for me. I’ve struggled with my weight for the last 7 years but a lot has to do with not being able to excerise because of a bad Knee. But I did go on a diet and was excerising every day and I did it with God I always prayed before I started and ended with a prayer of thanks…but some how I got side tracked and slowly stopped reading my bible regularly and then one day it just happened my knee got worse and I couldn’t excerise any more and I’m not good at dieting and I’m stuck in the house all the time which always leads me to the wrong choices in food and now I’ve become depressed about my weight because I’ve put back on 10 lbs within the last three months and I know deep down inside it’s my fault because i quit putting God First and foremost and I know I need to start doing what it was I did before and that is to ground myself into GODS Word and talking to him more because like you said God Doesn’t want us to be unhappy with ourselves at all and I know this because before I started my diet and excerise a year ago I was praying constantly for God to help me loose my weight and He did after he showed me I had to help myself first, God Helped me all the way to excerising and eating right. Then I noticed my knee got worse and I couldn’t excerise anymore and I started putting back on the weight that’s when I realized that I had taken my eyes off God I wasn’t reading my bible like I should have been and I think this group is exactly what I need to help me grow in Gods word and stay grounded in my Faith because I know First Hand what God can do for me and has done for me. I believe with all my heart that God is the reason I found this group. I just pray I can get a book before this Session begins. Thank you so much for the Emails. Ms Bernice Wise

    I am going to tell my sister, and get her to do it with me! She really doesn’t have a choice. Lol. We both have had babies in past 6mths and need help to loose the ‘baby’ weight. But really I can’t call snacking on chips at 11pm ‘baby’ weight, no matter how hard I try to justify it.
    Excited to study with all you ladies

    I’m sharing with my mom and a girl that I work with. She is training for a 10K (her first ever) and is struggling with some food issues. I thought we could have some good discussions at work about the study!!! I’m looking forward to dealing with my own food issues and getting closer to God.

    I originally signed up for this study so I could finally lose some weight, but the more I’ve read the e-mails and blogs in preparation for this study my goals have changed. Now I want to make God the center of my life, and I want to crave Him before all other things. I have shared this information with my mom and she is going to do the study with me. I’m so excited for this opportunity!

    I am sharing this post with my daughter! She has recently gave her life to God and I couldn’t be prouder of her! She was asking me about books and bible studies, so Proverbs31 was the first thing I told her about! I am planning on getting her the A Confident Heart book and devotional! Even though the study is over, I know those books will help her! I am praying that she will join me in participating in this OBS!

    I’ve recently come out of a very long depression. I wasn’t taking care of my health in any way, shape, or form. I was eating like crap, not exercising, cutting myself down and doubting myself, letting myself get overwhelmed with day to day duties. I thought I had finally snapped and “this was it” for me. But I did something I hadn’t done in a very long time. I prayed. I prayed for hours until I couldn’t deny that I was the person standing in the way of my own happiness. I couldn’t have done it without God’s help and leaning on Him. He has shown me the positive in so many dark situations and helped me through them. I can’t wait to read this book and go through the study. It’s only going to strengthen my relationship with Him so much more and lead me to great things.

    Hi! Thank you for this! I am going to share with Carol. I am 58 yrs. old and I am tired of using the excuse that I grew up poor and never want to lack of anything again! God has bee in my life on purpose since 2003. Until then, I believed I would someday be homeless! To prepare for that I belonged to a spa for 30 years because I could at least have a place to shower! I had a car big enough so that I would have a place to sleep! I always wanted a van, though to make sure of that! It took me many years to come to trust God in His promise to provide all my needs! I don’t worry about those things any longer, however, I don’t know how to let go of the food issue! I know what I need to do in my mind. I just don’t know what I need to do in my heart! With God and this study, I am looking forward to letting go of the bad habits and letting God fill those thoughts of ‘eating’ just to be eating…

    I have shared w an old friend, Wendy. We both got the book several months ago w the intention of getting together regularly but never did. Life took over. So this is my way of holding myself accountable. I’ve read the book once but just as w the addicts I work w, often times one needs more than one time through. I really wanted to break the bondage I have to food. To gain control. I use excuses to eat what i want amd as often as i want and i want to rely on God’s love to sustain me, not food. I don’t need to lose a lot of weight so for me it’s more about trusting God for me through this discipline. Looking forward to this, my first bible study!
