While that was the end of the story it is nowhere near the end of my battle with weight. It is almost like an addiction. I constantly have to be aware of what I am putting in my mouth because a lot of the time it is completely mindless. Sometimes I don't feel like I have any control over anything else in my life but food, oh yes I can control food. I can control exactly how much I binge on. It feels like that but I don't think it is true. I am trying to learn to lean on God during those stressful moments, hours, days. I know that He is the only one that can truly help me overcome the food and the stress and change my life.
My favorite Bible verses:
Amplified Bible (AMP)
9"Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
New International Version (NIV)
So, let me get this... He has a plan, He is always with me, be strong and courageous, don't be afraid and I will prosper and have hope and a future. Sounds easy to me. If only I could figure it out and learn it and live it. Guess I'll go pray and ask for more strength and courage.
What do you struggle with? Food? Lying? Porn? Drugs? No matter your sin God sees them equally. No sin is greater than another against God. Pray for His help, repent and overcome. If you take the first step He will be with you ALL the way!
