Lifestyle Change

Lord, is this way of eating to be a lifestyle change? Will I have to eat this way for all my life?

So I can never eat all I want. Will I always have to consider what’s before me and choose wisely? In fact, am I to seek Your wisdom and guidance over everything I put in my mouth, in my mind, and in my spirit too?

So whatever I eat, watch, read, or listen to, I am to consider my choices and then seek Your wisdom over it all. Overall, I am to live a completely yielded life in complete surrender of all my selfishness to Your guidance and wisdom.

Child, I am teaching you all throughout this process of your life. I will lead you as you seek My guidance. And yes, you will be making a lifestyle change. From now on, you are to seek My will in all things, with every thought, word, or action.

Lord, I need You to guide me for every little detail of my life and all my choices.

Child, I want you to focus on Me and the needs of those around you. Listen to them as they speak. You will learn much. Also I want you to learn from Me. I desire to teach you to listen to Me and follow My guidance without doubt or hesitation. 

I want you to be a “follower” of Me, not of others, but Me. So yes, you could say this will be a lifestyle change for you. 

Do this for yourself and for those I place in your life. I have a purpose for you and it’s not to be constantly seeking the voice of others. It is to be seeking My voice and following My will.Seek His answers

Listen to Me. Follow My guidance and obey My will without doubt or hesitation. This is the lifestyle change I desire for you. 

So learn to listen as I speak and learn to follow as I lead. The key to your victory is surrendering your will to My will. 

Okay Lord, teach me how.

Child, I’m in the process of teaching you now.

Seeking Day

Seeking Day
Today is “Seeking Day”.

Today is your “seeking day”. Seek My will and seek My Presence. I know you’ll be talking to others, but focus on talking to Me today, all throughout your day. 

Lord, this is such a struggle. It’s an ongoing battle, a major struggle in my life. In fact, it seems I can’t ever win.

Child, victories only come through struggles and battles. There’s never a victory without a battle. 

But Lord, it seems like there’s a war inside of me and I can’t ever win.

My Child, you can win, for you are a winner. After all, you are Mine and all of Mine win. Because I always win. Therefore you win. 

But Lord, right now I feel like a loser, defeated before all to see, especially myself. I see myself as a loser.

So My child, quit looking at what you see. Now look to Me, so you can see what I see. For you, My Child, are strong and victorious.

But Lord, I start out my day strong. Then by night fall I’m weak and defeated.

Then change My child, change your pattern of life. 

How can I? When I wake up, the house is quiet and I can hear Your voice clearly. But in the evening I am tired, the TV is blaring, news is depressing and I fall asleep in my chair.  How can I change this pattern?

Child, make today your “Seeking Day”. You’ve been listening to many voices throughout your day. On this “seeking day”, shut off all other voices and settle yourself in. Seek My voice. Seek My Presence and you will have peace. When I am on your side, you are a winner. It is so for I have declared it so. 

seeking Day
Seek My Presence.

Words From Seeking Day

The Lord will always deliver me from all evil and will bring me into His heavenly Kingdom . . .  2 Timothy 4:18 TLB

. . . God, who began the good work within you will keep right on helping you grow in His grace until His task within you is finally finished on that day when Jesus Christ returns. Philippians 1:6 TLB 

Nevertheless, I am continually with You; You have taken hold me of my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to honor and glory. Psalms 73:23-24 AMP

No Perfect People

 

No perfect people
There are no perfect people, but God has already planned for your victory.

Child, I have no perfect people. All those I love have flaws and imperfections. That’s why I came, to offer them healing for their souls, for their broken bodies, and for their disillusioned and disappointed minds. I came to offer them forgiveness for all their failures, even you.

Child, I love you. 

Lord, I love you too. Thank you for loving me. I’m so imperfect, so full of flaws and selfishness. Sometimes I’m even full of abundant food.

It seems I’m always praying about what concerns me the most, not what concerns You the most. I don’t do a “work” for You. Mostly I do a work for myself, to meet my needs and desires instead of Your needs and desires. Lord, forgive me.

As I look at people, I always think, “Who can I talk to about my program?” But Lord, what they need most is Your Program. I have yet to talk to someone about Your program, Your saving power.

Child, I have no perfect people. All of those I love have flaws and imperfections. But I came to offer them healing for their bodies, either permanently by bringing them home to be with Me, or through a process. Sometimes I touch them with My healing touch and it brings a miraculous healing for them. Only God, My heavenly Father, knows and I follow His will completely. Therefore, it pleases both Me and My Father when you seek My will in all things. 

But Lord, what about this program I’m on? I pray seeking your will, but I feel shame and guilt using a program to lose weight instead of just eating in obedience to You.

Child, as long as you seek My will about what to eat, as long as you seek My strength to resist temptation to overindulge, you are eating in submission to Me. So depend on Me for all things and I will lead you. Remember Psalms 32:8.

Many of my servants advertise their books. You are advertising a program that benefits you , but it also brings deliverance to others. Yes, they pay for it, but sometimes healing comes through a process. Remember? And through this health coaching you’re reaching out to others in love. 

So there’s more to this than just selling a weight loss plan. This is a process in which freedom can come to many. In fact, it has already come to many. After all, this is not selling soap, or storage containers, it’s teaching a way of life. It’s breaking the bondages of defeat. So many of My children have struggled for so many years with food addiction and excess weight. 

Overall, this program can help them break free and learn how to make healthy choices. This time you are selling (offering) freedom, a way, tools to help others gain and find freedom. Look at how it has helped your husband. He has freedom now. So rejoice and do away with this guilt you have. 

Thank you Lord for talking with me.

Child, My pleasure.

Listen For My Voice

Listen for My voiceListen for My voice, seek My guidance. Remember at times, My voice at times is a still, quiet voice. Listen for My voice, Child. Even though there is much noise around, you can still listen. If you focus, listen, trust, and obey, then I’ll lead you to your victory.

I will never give up on you or the victory I have planned for you. So you never give up, My child, for I have great plans coming forth, plans for your victory.

Listen for My voice.

Oh Lord! Thank you, but at times I put my face down in the feeding trough. Am I stupid?

No, My child. . . .just. . .

What Lord? What am I then? Is it Your voice I’m hearing? Am I weird?

No, My child, just backslidden into your old ways. 

Lord, I’m in a trap of my own making. How can I stop this binge eating? I do good for several days, then I return to the slop jar over and over. How can I stop?

Child, come to Me before eating anything. Drink your water and come to Me.

Lord, will I ever stop?

Yes, when you start coming to Me. 

Lord, I thought I heard You correctly when I ordered this program.

You did hear Me correctly. But when you’re into our food pleasure, your ears are closed due to your will to overeat. 

Lord, is there any hope for me? It seems I have no self-control at all.

Child, I am your hope. And I intend to make you strong.

Lord, renew my mind. Make it yours.Submission in your heart

Listen for His voice

 

It’s About The People

Child, it’s about the people. It’s not the places you’ll go, it’s the people you’ll meet. In fact, it’s always been about the people you touch, you help, or you minster to or encourage. Minister My love to all who I place in your path. Overall, this is your assignment in life.

To begin with, always ask if you can pray for them. You don’t have to have a planned speech to witness about My love, just listen and love them. Be concerned about them and what they’re going through.

It's about the people

It’s not always about your “to do” list. Instead, it’s about relationships with those you love and those I love. It’s about those you live with, your other family members, your co-workers, those at your church, and all those I place in your path. It’s never about the “to do” list. But it’s always about the people. Remember that, it’s always about the people you meet.

Talk to Me first about everything. Also look up from your cell phone and see those I place in your path. Then listen to them. They all have a story. Each one is important to Me.

Remember I AM no respecter of persons. Therefore I’m concerned over each and every single one. So listen to their story for everyone has a story. Look up and listen. First of all, look up from your cell phone and look to Me. Then look around for those I place in your path.

Overall listen to Me, then listen to them. As you listen, seek My guidance and My wisdom. I will lead you how to minister to each one. Sometimes people only need to talk about their life, their worries and their heart cries. Most of the time they just need someone to listen, not give advice, just listen.

Most times they’ll pour out their hearts to a concerned stranger versus someone connected to them. So listen to them, My child. that’s your calling, to be a listener.

To begin with, seek My Presence first. Then ask Me how to lead you as to what to speak to them. Don’t ever worry about if you have the right words or not. If you seek My wisdom, I will give you the right words to speak.

I know you enjoy talking a lot. But I especially enjoy taking the weakness of My children and turning them into strengths. So as you surrender yourself to Me, I will turn your weakness of over-talking into a strength of listening. Just as I will turn your weakness of food compulsion into a strength of food deliverance.

It's all about the people

 

In addition to helping others by listening to them, you’ll also help inspire others to only eat what is necessary for their health and not emotional pleasure from food. In fact I am setting you free from this compulsion to overeat and I will use your story to inspire others.

So let go My child. Let go of all your conspired- preconceived ideas of what your life should be. Overall look up, speak up and listen up. What a grand adventure you will have.

Thank you Lord for talking with me.

The World Has Gone Crazy

Lord, I want Your will in my life. Because at times I think the world has gone crazy. It seems that everything has gone upside down from what it should be. And I am confused about many things.

Child, as you put it, the world has gone crazy. But nothing has really changed. For it has always been so, since Adam. But I have come to offer hope. For I AM hope, I am deliverance, I am freedom, and I am salvation. Therefore I AM all you need.

Adam and Eve in the Garden

Lord, my attention is so easily distracted on so many different things. Sometimes I choose to turn on the television, or radio, just to get the news of what is going on in my world. I’ve been seeking the other sources besides You. Forgive me.

Lord, I want You as my first love. And I want to keep You first in my life. Help me to stay focused on You.

Child, you can’t build success without Me. If you depend on Me to lead you, I will help you. Make Me the boss of your life.

Do you remember last May when you were going through that difficult time at work? Remember when you declared that I was your boss. Therefore you worked for Me and no other. Remember how I helped you each day?

Yes Sir.

Child, I am still your boss. So come to Me with all your concerns. Then I will lead you and direct all your steps, even your words.

Lord, I went to the grocery store today. But I didn’t think to ask for your guidance about what to purchase for our food preparations. Help me remember to seek Your wisdom. Forgive me for not consulting You first, for You know what is best for our bodies, and what is best for my pocketbook.

Child, put My words in your car, on your desk, and in your kitchen.

-I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Psalms 32:8 NKJV

Thank you Lord for the assurance from that verse that You will guide me and teach me as I go forth.

Lord, guide all my actions, words, and even my thoughts. Help me to do Your will in all things. Overall Lord, help me to do Your will, say Your will and even think Your will in all my ways. Amen


I Want To Be An Overcomer

I want to be an overcomer

Lord, I want to be an overcomer. Can You help me? Because we both know I can’t do this by myself.

Come to Me, Child, for I am the Overcomer. And through My Presence you will become an overcomer for that is My will for you. Continue reading I Want To Be An Overcomer

Entangled in Food Addiction

Lord, I’ve become entangled in food addiction again. I’ve been in this trap of defeat for several years now. Really all my life I have struggled with my weight and food addiction.

What’s humiliating is that after You healed me with a weight loss miracle of losing 90 pounds in 2014, I backslid. Yes, in 2017, I backslid and regained 30 0f those pounds.

Although I’ve maintained a weight loss of 60 pounds, I’m ashamed of regaining those 30 pounds. And now I’ve lost & regained the same 10 pounds over & over since 2020.

Lord, I wanted to help others defeat their food addiction, compulsive overeating, binge eating, gluttony, and bloating misery. But how can I help others when I, myself, am entangled in food addiction again?

Yes, here I am now due to my own wrong choices of yesterday. Lord, would You help me again to climb out of this hellhole of my own creation?

Entangled in Food Addiction

I have no strength to resist temptation, but I do want to help others climb out of their hellholes of food addiction. So how can I help them?

Child, I’m full of Almighty power- stronger than any other source. I am ALL power, stronger than your electricity and more powerful than lightening.

Don’t you think I have the power to defeat your food compulsions?

Yes Lord.

Then My Child, why don’t you come to Me first, before you put anything in your mouth- including your gum. As you chew your gum, practice thanking Me for your victories. When you chew your food, talk to Me.

As a matter of fact, even before you look at your food, talk to Me first about it. Talk to Me about all your concerns.

Talking to Me will bring you peace, henceforth destroying your need to stress eat. For then you’ll be stress praying instead of stress overeating.

Entangled in Food Addiction

Talking with Me will calm your spirit and mind, henceforth destroying the need for emotional eating. For then you’ll be emotional praying. And I will heal your emotions and fill you Myself with a calm and peaceful spirit. Wouldn’t that be better for you instead of a stuffed, bloated belly?

Talking with Me would bring you the pleasure of My sweet Presence, henceforth destroying the power of pleasure food temptations. And then you’d be experiencing the greatest sweet pleasure of life, My Presence surrounding you and within you.

When you’re full of My Presence, then you’re also full of My power and strength. Overall, you’d be full of My peace and My love.

Temptations would no longer defeat you for then you’d be walking in My power and My strength.

Now what do you choose, My Child?

Lord, I choose You. I want You. I want to be free, not entangled in food addiction. But Lord, I’m so weak. Would You help me, even though I backslid due to my own bad choices?

Child, the more of your time you spend in My Presence, the stronger you’ll become. You’ll be walking in My power.

Now come to Me for I love you. And I long to give you victory throughout all your life. As a matter of fact I long to grant all of My children victory over sin, shame and defeat.

I intend for all of My children to live victorious forevermore. For I AM victory. So all of Mine will be victorious too, as they seek to follow Me.

Lord, I’ve let myself become entangled again in food addiction by my own wrong choices. Please set me free from this prison, the one I created for myself. Help me make wise choices that will honor you.

CHEW ON THIS

Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your Name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of Your goodness to me. Psalms 142: 7 NIV

Come quickly, Lord, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Let me hear of Your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to You. . . . Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your gracious spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalms 143: 7,8,10 NLT

At last we have freedom, for Christ has set us free! We must always cherish this truth and firmly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past. Galatians 5:1 TPT

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. Galatians 5:13 NIV

Slow Down

Child, slow down your eating. Take time to enjoy each bite versus swallowing it as fast as you can in order to reach for the next bite.

To begin with, eating is not a marathon race to finish first. For you, winning is not cleaning your plate first. Instead, winning for you is eating only what is sufficient for your body, savoring each bite. Yes, I want you to enjoy your food, but not inhale it.

So slow down, take your time. You’ve heard the saying, “Take time to smell the coffee.”  Now I say to you, “Take time to taste your food.” And chew it slowly too. Chewing slowly increases the flavor.

When you chew and swallow your food as fast as you can, you can’t enjoy the taste as much as you would have if you chewed it slowly. So try slowing down to enjoy your meals.

And see for yourself if this doesn’t increase the pleasure of your meal. Trust Me.

Yes Sir. I’ll try today.

Also try eating less at your meals in order to increase your hunger for the next meal.

Your Hubby will be eating every every 2-3 hours on his food plan. But you, My child, I want you to hunger for Me.  You are to be semi-fasting. Do you remember what you said to Me yesterday?

Yes Sir.

You said you wanted to live a semi-fasted lifestyle to increase your spiritual focus. 

Yes Sir, I did say that.

Well child . . .  eating all of it is not semi-fasting. In reality, it is eating all of it. 

Yes sir.

So try again today. Start over again today. And focus on enjoying the pleasure of My Presence versus the pleasure of food. 

Also before you eat, seek My advice about what and how much to eat. Use your “before the meal blessing” as a time to seek My will about your food. 

Thank you Lord for talking with me about my food issues again today. You’ve never given up on me even though I’ve messed up so many times.

Child, I never give up on any of My children. Therefore, I will never give up on you.

Lord, help me to please you in all my ways. Help me to not be filled with anxiousness and self-pity parties too. Overall Lord,  I need Your help just to deal with all this stress in my life.

So be at peace, My child. I will help you. Allow Me to fill you with My Presence. This will strengthen you as you goes forth. And slow down your eating too. I have already planned for your victory. Never give up on yourself. Know this, I will never give up on You. Never give up.

Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.


Defeat This Giant

“Child, your weight struggle is a giant before you at this time. So use the rock of My Presence and you’ll defeat this giant in your life.” 

____________________________Defeat Your Giant

Yes Lord, I’ve struggled with my weight and these regained pounds, up and down with the same 10 pounds for basically two years now.

All this time I’ve experienced guilt, shame, or rejoicing due to the numbers on a scale. This year I want release and deliverance. Lord, I’m sick of this struggle. And I’m sick of what I consider to be my failures. Would You help me? I’m ready to move on to the victory You have for me.

And yet with all the problems, issues, and major life struggles throughout this world, I feel guilty talking to You about my weight struggle. So many people throughout Earth are struggling just for a piece of bread. Here I am struggling not to eat the bread.

Child, it’s your heart I want, a yielded heart, seeking My will, full of love for Me. That’s what I desire most. So yield yourself totally to Me. Then I’ll fill you with more of My Holy Spirit to overflow. When you’re full of My Presence, you’ll lose desire for other things such as unnecessary food.

When conditions of this world are overwhelming, you want to to overeat due to stress. Come to Me now.

Sing to Me. As you sing to Me, then My calming peaceful Spirit will fill you with My peace. 

Also remember, look away from your earthly news and keep your eyes on Me. 

So Lord, how do I keep My eyes on You. How do I look at You? I can’t see You.

Child, look around. What do you see? 

I see a beautiful peace lily plant growing.

I made it grow. 

There are pictures of my grandchildren.

I gave you their love. 

There are souvenirs from our trip to Israel.

I arranged that trip for you.

There are framed cross-stitched scriptures on the wall and prompted up on the floor.

Those are My words presented in a beautiful form to please you and encourage you. 

There’s a bowl of rocks I picked up from the valley of Elah where David killed Goliath.

Child, I have many David’s throughout this land who are killing their giants of defeat.   

Your weight struggle is a giant before you at this time. So use the rock of My Presence and you’ll defeat this giant.

Just as the Israelites shook in their knees fearful of Goliath, you’re full of  fear too. But know this, just as David was full of faith knowing I’d help him, I’ll help you defeat your giant too. 

Now go forth in your victory singing praise songs for My glory. Because I have already given you the victory. 

Defeat this Giant Defeat this giant

Yes Sir.
