It was simple to invite God into the mix... it was hard to listen and begin to obey Him in this very fragile, sensitive, flesh screaming for sugar area of my life. He first showed me where I was sinning in the area of my health and eating habits. Yes....I said "sinning." When I realized what God was showing me, I repented and began to ask Him to convict me everytime I was about to sin again. He did. Boy, did He. All of a sudden I was no longer concerned with weight loss, I was concerned with obedience. The weight loss became the result of my obedience. It has been hard. But wonderful. I have found out, once again, how faithful God is. If God has been faithful to you in other areas of your life...trust me....He will be faithful in this area.
About 3 months into my journey, God brought a book across my path called "Made To Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst. This book has been such a huge support to my journey. I highly recommend this book. Don't try to lose one more pound without reading it. Lysa is brilliantly honest, vulnerable and uplifting as she takes us to the Word of God for our help and shares her personal story of her struggle with weight.
I would absolutly love to hear from each of you about your particular struggle in this area. You know....we can support one another as women....not compare ourselves to each other, but love, challenge and cheer each other on. Decide today that you no longer will seek after that miracle "diet" but instead seek after the God who can change you from the inside out and show you the "lifestyle" He has designed for your optimal health.
Let's get the conversation going!
