Permissable But Not Beneficial

I am in the middle of Week 1 of "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst, the current Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study. This is my 5th Online Bible Study.  

I found the verse of 1 Corinthians 10:23a to be simple yet profound. It speaks not only of what we crave in our thoughts and actions with food, but to any behavior, any choice. It's going to be one of my go to verses. 

How do I define a go to verse? Its a verse I used in my battle to be a Jesus girl.  A verse that helps with the struggles I encounter.  It will help me make decisions based on truth, instead of desire.  It will comfort me in that, I do have freedom of choice, but not all choices make us feel free in the long run. Its a verse I've studied, highlighted, written down and memorized.  I write them on note-cards and scatter them in random places, and find them in just the right moment of need.

I find the more do to actively pursue God, via reading Bible studies, listening to sermons, and just trying to show the world love, the more I feel free. I feel strong, armed with truth and ready for battle. Thank you, God, for your love and letting me share it.
