And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
Giving things up in order to come closer to God, to obey His word, and to refuse to serve yourself any longer isn't only holy, it's healthy.The truly strong and successful girl is the one who has said no to all the world has to offer and yes to all that heaven holds and even demands.
When God shows you something that's got to go, be quick to get rid of it. Don't whine about how much you miss it, don't wonder if it's really God asking you to give it up, just give it up with the belief that a heart turned over completely to Him is a happy heart. And your faith will be rewarded.Guaranteed!
