Yes Child, you are . . . a food drunk. Today I say to you, “Sober up, get up, and wash your face. What’s done is yesterday.”
Now get up from your bed of self-wallowing. So wash your face and go forth in your new assignment from me.
Lord, again I ask forgiveness for the same old sin that comes back over and over. I ask forgiveness for yesterday’s drunken stupor.
Child, I forgive you. Now get up out of this squalor and go forth. Not only do I have many plans for you, plans for a hope and a future, but also My plans are not to harm you (or punish you).
After all Child, I’m not giving up on you.
Lord, I’m sorry I keep returning to the feeding bucket. How can I be so stupid?
Yes Child, you love food. But I am going to remove that love from your heart. You will love Me more than your necessary food. I have plans for you and it’s not for you to gain weight or be addicted to food. No, it’s for you to go forth in My assignments. You know, the ones I have planned for you.
There are many assignments ahead for you, people’s lives for you to touch, talk with, and connect with their hearts. They will touch your heart. Right now, your heart can’t connect due to being numb and satiated with food.
Oh Lord, please forgive me.
Child, I already have. Through all of this you are learning.
Lord, will I ever get it right?
Yes My Child, you will. But be aware. After gluttony leaves, then pride comes forth. That’s exactly what caused your downfall, pride in your previous weigh loss of 90 pounds. But know this, I have victory over both pride and gluttony. Overall I have total and complete victory. So come to Me. Allow Me to rule over you, both your spirit and your stomach.
Yes Lord. Here I am. Take me. I give myself to You. Thank you for not giving up on me.
Child, I will never give up on you. Never. After all, I died on that cross just for you. Yes, you.
Never Give Up
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. Romans 8:37 NKJV
