I didn’t eat it
But it was hard to resist
My body wanted to take that kitchen trip
But the food I could stand to miss

Not that it was bad, it’s just not in the best interest for me
As I strive to be more healthy
Wanna ditch the pills and do it naturally
Lord, thanks for helping stick to a better way of eating

Some foods I grew up on, I don’t eat no more
And don’t season food as heavy as before
And new cooking methods I’ve started to explore
Added new things to the diet too
Like snacking on more nuts and fruits
Even put in a request to a company
To make my favorite snack more healthy
Lord, thanks for will power for a better way to eat.

Scripture Reference: Matthew 26:41, Psalm 139: 14
Background
Certain foods sure look and smell good especially when you are trying to avoid them. But in order to keep the blessing of good health, we have to eat what is good for our bodies. After all, Psalm 139:14 tells us our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made. And through prayer, God helps us to avoid temptation. Matthew 26:41 tell us to watch and pray that we enter into temptation because the flesh is weak.
