VICTORY

—- The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.     Psalms 37:23-24

Walking with a granddaughter.

Lord, I just want to thank you for guiding my steps:

  • Steps to grow closer to You
  • Steps to grow stronger in my body
  • Steps in eating less
  • Steps in  friendships with others
  • Steps to my victory

You hold my victory in Your hand and for this I praise You.

My child, I AM your victory. When you come to Me, you come to victory.

Lord, You’re helping me get in those walking steps for exercise.

My child, it is more important that you walk with Me.

I messed up with that chocolate issue last week. Thanks for helping me not give in to the temptation this week to binge on this luxury. But I do want to praise You for that one Hersey’s Kiss You do allow. That one piece of chocolate is a pleasure and a delight.  I can eat just one. Yes, You have given me victory over this chocolate. Thank you.     IMG_4502

My child, those kisses left from your valentine represent love. I love you more than anything. I love you more than anyone. Come to Me for your pleasure and I will fill you with Myself. You will know peace and true joy when you fill yourself with Me. I want to be your pleasure and your delight.

Lord, I want to delight in You and be a delight to You.

 I want to praise You for this wonderful weight loss plan that You gave me when I cried out in desperation. You told me to eat only three meals a day with no snacks at all. I told You that I was  burned out on all diets. I’ve failed so many diets that I just can’t diet anymore. Then You said, “Just eat half.” Wow! How freeing this was to me and it worked too. Thank you Lord.

I love my deserts. What would life be if you didn’t have just a little sweet? When I asked if I just have some desert, You said again, “Just eat half.”  Thank you Lord.

About deborahcrocker

I am a retired public school teacher. I have been married for 44 years to my high school sweet heart. We have two grown children and six grandchildren. For many years I have written my prayers in order to maintain both my focus and as a release from my stresses. These prayers are written in the form of dialog with God. I write my concerns, questions, and then write the answers just as they came into my heart. This website contains the conversations I had with God concerning my constant struggle with my weight and my compulsion to overindulge in the pleasure of food. I have gained, lost, and regained over 60lbs several times throughout my lifetime. I am now in the process of surrendering this addiction to God’s control and I know He will give me the victory. I believe that God speaks to all of His children in different ways. With me, He speaks both in my heart and in my dialog writings. ”My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27 It is my hope and prayer that these dialogs will both encourage and bless you throughout your own journey of breaking free from your addiction. I hope that you will also begin having your own personal dialogs with God. He will speak to your heart as well.I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and that He rose again on the third day so that we may have a “new” life both here on Earth and later in Heaven. I also believe that my overeating (gluttony) is a sin (addiction) that has held me in bondage with a constant struggle for most of my adult life. This addiction, like all addictions, has prevented me from living a life to my fullest potential. I have always felt controlled and defeated by this overwhelming compulsion to overeat. This compulsion, at times, has damaged both my confidence and my potential. John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. BUT I know that Jesus Christ has come to set me free! HE IS THE ANSWER! As I surrender the control of my life and desires to His direction and His will, He will set me free from all addictions! He promises and He will make you free too! John 8:36 Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. VICTORY IS COMING!!!
