These are a couple of “Before” pictures. Yes, I did gain weight from 2010, another 30 pounds and reached 241 pounds by May of 2013. But God didn’t give up on me, even when I gave up on myself. Since May 2013, I have now lost 62 pounds. Compare the picture of 2013 to my new profile picture. See the physical documentation of my deliverance from excess weight with God’s help. I feel that I am in a process of being healed. As you witness my progress, choose to give God your struggles as well. He has the answer and brings our victory!
For many years I have written my prayers to maintain focus and as a release from stress. These prayers were written in the form of conversations with God. I wrote my concerns, questions, and then wrote the answers just as they came into my heart. This website contains some of my conversations with God about the constant struggle with excess weight and my compulsion to overindulge in the pleasure of food. I have gained, lost, and regained over 60 lbs. severval times throughout my lifetime. Now I am 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 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 counseling sessions with God will encourage you in your own journey of breaking free from addiction. I hope you will also begin your own personal conversations with God. He’ll 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 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!!!
