God Knows I Ate A Cookie

From the top of my head to the tip of my toes there's nothing about me, that God does not know. He knows I am weak, but in Him I am strong. And what ever I do, He sees my rights and He sees my wrongs. God, You know I'm not perfect, and this cookie I eat, tastes so delicious, fresh baked and sweet. Help me, God, to control my diabetes today. And give me a love for more veggies, I pray. (P.S., God, Can you make them taste sweet? Like the cookies so tempting that I love to eat.) .

Hi Darlene, God has a file for every one of us from the day we enter life to the day we exit! I agree, he knows everything about us and probably did from the moment when we were first conceived. Thank you for sharing such true to life wonderful poem. God bless, Love Jennifer

What a delightful poem. God does indeed know all we do, and even what we think. He reads our hearts. I love the way you speak with Him in prayer. He's our best friend, so we should talk with Him in the way you did. Take care of yourself. ~ Lin ~ I'll be reading more of your works.

Thank you, Lin, for your kind remarks about my poem. And, yes, when you talk to God, just pretend you are talking to your best friend. And share everything with Him. Because, actually He is your best friend. Someone you can turn to for all your concerns, or just to say "Hi, God! How are you today." Now I want to go to your site and read one of your poems. ~Darlene

I like how u used humor to talk about a serious issue. It makes the reader understand how strong the sugar battle is yet enjoying the poem..be blessed

Adorable! Thank you for sharing your sweet thoughts about your sweet tooth. Diabetes is no joke..my Mom has to deal with it also. God knows what you do..but it's the Dr. you need to impress. Lol!! Please be careful with sugar..I had a friend who ate a couple donuts and it sent him to the hospital. He found out he was Diabetic and now he makes Wheat donuts with a sugar free pudding frosting..I had one, all I can say is FABULOUS!!!! Great write!

Your comments are encouraging. Thanks, Jennifer. May God bless and be with your mom as she copes with diabetes also. And your friend with the new way to make his donuts sounds delicious. I like the idea of pudding frosting. I will try it. Those little sf pudding cups make nice snacks to carry with you when others are eating ice cream, etc.When my grandson was little, he asked me for chocolate pudding. All I had was vanilla. He said, "Oh that's ok, Grandma. I'll just pretend it's chocolate." Wise child!The power of the imagination might just work for us diabetics, as well!

I'm sure that the Good Lord will help you navigate the saccharin seas, Darlene, and your lifestyle is keeping you afloat. I'd go for half a cookie, eaten at half speed. Take care. Blessings, Viv x

Darlene, your poem has a playful feel to it, but the seriousness of the situation comes out as well. Thank God that He knows us and will help us! Love, Kim

Thanks Kim, for responding. You're right, I did try to be humorous as I was writing this, but it is a serious subject as well. And I pray for all the people with diabetes out there and also here on poetry soup that God may help them manage their diabetes.Because the consequences can be severe.I am managing mine by switching my diet to 80 % vegetarian diet and finding substitutes for the sweet taste I love. But sweetest of all is Jesus. Blessings, Darlene

I feel your angst, Darlene - trouble is, almost everything we eat has sugar in it :(

Thanks, Bill, and how true what you say! I lost weight. I used to be 145 lbs, and now I'm down to 114. But the cravings still are there. I exercise more and I never liked the taste of water. But I switched to sparkling flavored water and that helps.Lifestyle changes and diet, I know now are very important. And now, instead of reaching for a sweetI reach for my pen and write. Any distraction helps if you can fight the urge until it passesThe smells and sights are what draws us all in. ~~Darlene

Thanks for the story about your dad, Jan. You know I'm not just talking about cookies, it's ice cream, pie, candy, etc. Why is it our cravings for what we should not eat are so strong! Sugar is poison. And like the devil, it draws us to it. Which is what the evil one wants. Please be careful, Jan, and watch your weight and try and keep your cravings under control. Since diabetes is in your family, there is a high chance you will develop it. Do not let excess fat accumulate around your middle stomach area. Those are the people most likely to develop diabetes. And I think you know it is a good idea to have your blood sugar checked when you visit your doctor. Blessings, Darlene

I can relate to this poem so much Darlene. My dad was diabetic - still ate everything in moderation and controlled his blood sugar - when he was terminally ill I would buy him whatever food he wanted - mum would say 'Jan it's not good for him' - it made me smile. I have to admit I have a sweet tooth hope I never develop diabetes in later life like dad did:-( hugs Jan xx
