I have lost 13 lbs. since Nov. 1st. Wow! I know that it is not much, but it excites me and gives me hope. I am so thankful that God has yet again extended His hand of mercy toward me. He has given me another chance to become the person that He created. The extra weight hanging off my body was evidence of my love for food, but as I let go, God gives me more and more of His love. Praise God, He is taking the mess that I created and He is re-creating me into a new creature.
II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.
Praise God! He is creating in me a new person. I am growing and will continue to grow smaller physically each day. But praise God, because of His counseling talks throughout the day, I am also growing and will continue to grow larger and stronger spiritually each day.
I see this as a win-win situation for me. It is a wonderful feeling to know that God is with you! I am so excited! Dance! Dance! Joy! Joy!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
I will focus on being thankful for His love , His blessings, and my family this Thanksgiving. I will not focus on the food on the table! Thanksgiving Day will not be a day of greed and gluttony for me , but instead it will be a day of ‘awe and amazement’ of God’s blessings.
Last night at church, a woman told me of her Thanksgiving tradition. First, she gets a white pillowcase and a waterproof pen or marker. Then at the family Thanksgiving celebration, she has each family member to write on it what they are thankful for this year, sign their name, and date it. Then next year, she gets it out and they repeat the process. It is a yearly record of God’s blessings year after year. She said that she hangs hers up as part of her Thanksgiving decorations so that all can see the blessings of God to her family.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! MAY GOD BE WITH YOU!
Thank you Father! I love you, Lord!
(I love you, My child! I am here! I will be at your Thanksgiving celebration for you will be praising Me and I so enjoy listening to the praise words of My children. I always show up when My children are praising Me because I have great pleasure in their expressions of love for Me. You enjoy hearing your children express their love for you. I also enjoy hearing My children express their love for Me. I ‘pleasure’ in the ‘love praises’ of My children! Be well, My child! Know that I am with you! I am with all My children!)
GOD IS SAYING THIS TO YOU TOO! LISTEN FOR HIS VOICE!
Romans 8:15-16 NKJV: For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.
