How many times have we chosen what feels good in the moment and then regretted it later? How many times, after that bad decision, have we beaten ourselves up for our lack of self control?
It is completely normal to want those things we know are bad for us, and often times, we decide to take what will please us in the moment, rather than wait for what we know is better.
God has such a wonderful plan for each and every one of our lives and wants us to be patient and seek His will:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Remember when you are faced with temptation that the Lord has promised much sweeter rewards for those who trust in Him:
"But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
Just because you have decided to have the junk food instead of the healthy meal, it doesn't mean God is mad at you. Once you ask for forgiveness, that sin is wiped clean. You get to start over. Don't settle for the spiritual junk food! Be patient for the goodness of the Lord and it will be all worth it in the end!
