Fat People With Jesus?

Lord, were there fat people when You walked the Earth?

(Note: I can ask this because I have been obese most of my adult life. And I’m 30 pounds overweight now. So isn’t it nice that we can talk to our Lord Jesus about anything and He doesn’t condemn us for asking silly questions.)

Soon I wont be one of the fat people.
Soon I won’t be one of the fat people- only 30 pounds to go.
I'm one of the fat people
What I used to look like at 241 pounds

Our Present Troubles

“For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:17‬ ‭NLT

______________________________

Lord, even though I ate only two meals today, (three, if You count the apple at breakfast), I gained 2 lbs. in one day. Now how could this be? I don’t understand. I’m so disappointed.

Our Present Troubles
40 Days of Victory
Day 23

Here I am eating correctly, and then gain weight. I haven’t had any desserts for 23 days, even through Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. None, not even one bite. Lord, what gives?

Child, even though you followed My instructions,  some of your portions were rather large. I suggest you cut them down in size. You could also choose to cut out starches. Definitely increase your water intake. Exercise too.

Lord, how do I know this is You and not me from all these years of struggling with my weight and dieting experiences? If I succeed at losing this regained weight, how can I say it was because of You and not in my own power?

Because Child, we both know you have no power to resist food temptations. You have already proven that by your past record. But now, even though it will require a fight, these food temptations will end. 

You will win because of My power within you. I will fill you  with My power to say ‘No’ to foods not good for your body. Also I will provide you the power to say ‘Yes’ to foods that are good for your body.

Therefore you will know it is only through My power that you can win this war, this life-time struggle with food compulsion/addiction. But know this, My Child, you will win because I AM on your side. You will win. Expect your victory. Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me and I will see to it you win this victory. For I am Victory indeed! Even in our present troubles

Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.

Buffets-Tools of Satan?

Buffets-tools of Satan? I think so. As I looked back over time, I then realized  weight gain started when we were on that cruise ship. All those buffets, so many options and so much food. Fill your plate. Go back for seconds. Eat as many desserts as your hearts desires. Greed is encouraged. Lord, buffets-tools of Satan? Yes, I think it’s so. Lord, what do You say?
