After 41 years of struggling to lose weight, by May of 2013, I weighed 241 pounds. I became so discouraged and gave up on myself. But isn’t it wonderful, God didn’t give up on me. Now through His grace and mercy, I’ve lost 90+/- pounds and maintained this weight loss since. Compare the before picture taken in 2013 to my new profile picture taken in 2016. See how God delivered me from obesity. With God’s help, I feel like I’m in a process of healing. As you’ve witnessed my deliverance, choose to give God your struggles. He has all the answers and grants you victory!
For many years I’ve written my prayers to maintain my focus and to release stress. These prayers were written as conversation with God. I wrote my concerns, questions, and then wrote His answers just as He spoke to 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. several times throughout my lifetime. Now I am in the process of surrendering this addiction to God’s control and He has given me victory. I believe God speaks to all 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’s my hope and prayer that my counseling sessions with God will encourage you in your own journey of breaking free from food addiction. I hope you’ll also begin your own personal conversations with God. Let Him speak to your heart too.
I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. He rose again on the third day so we could have a “new” life both here on Earth and later in Heaven. He came to give us abundant life, not abundant size.
I also believe my overeating (gluttony) is a sin (addiction) that has held me in bondage with a constant struggle for all my adult life. This addiction, like all addictions, has prevented me from living a life to my fullest potential. I’ve always felt controlled and defeated by this overwhelming compulsion to overeat. This compulsion, at times, has damaged both my confidence and my potential. But God has set me free.
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. John 10:10
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 keeps His promises and He’ll make you free too!
John 8:36 Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
VICTORY IS COMING!!!
