Today I would like to keep my post simple with this one undeniable truth. I am a born again Christian and I’m so very grateful for my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. That he would give his life for mine is awesome, in the truest sense of the word. That he would continue to work in my life after all these years is amazing to me.
When I gave my life to Jesus he not only forgave me of my sins, but he offered me joy and peace no matter what life throws my way. This includes struggles with weight.
Many times in this weight loss journey I have struggled with fears of failure, inadequacy and more, but He always sees me through. Sometimes it’s a sermon at church or a scripture in my daily Bible reading. Other times it’s words of wisdom and encouragement spoken in person or written on a blog.
No matter the venue God has ministered to me so many times in my weight loss journey that it wouldn’t be right to not give Him proper praise. The bondages I’ve had to food could not be broken without his help.
As I write I’m reminded of a favorite scripture of mine. …
“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”. Psalm 37:4
One of my desires is to have control over food in my life. With God’s help I’m blessed to say I’m in the process of seeing that come to pass, and I’m so very, very thankful for that.
