Created For Freedom

Turnaround victory

Child, you were created for freedom. As you yield yourself to Me, I’ll set you free. Then I’ll fill you with power to say “No” to unnecessary and trigger foods as you yield yourself to Me.

In fact, I’ll grant you the power to say “No” to all temptations. I plan on making you strong. Not defeated, but strong. Moreover I will grant you victory in all areas of your life.

So let go of what you have and come to Me empty-handed. Then I can I will fill your heart, mind, and soul with Myself.

Celebrate National Food Day

Oh Lord, that’s what I want. That’s what I really need, more of You.

Lord, settle my mind, and my spirit. Create in me, a new heart and a steadfast spirit. Holy Spirit, lead me to Your will.

Child, as you seek My will, I’ll lead you. But you must seek, trust, and obey as I lead. When you turn your own way, I stop leading for I will not force anyone to choose My way. It must be your choice, your free will, that chooses to follow Me.

So let go of what is in your hand, your abundant food, your pleasure food, and your night-time eating. Satan wants you in bondage, entrapped in defeat. But you were created you for freedom.

Let go of your plans, your dreams, and your desires. For I have more for you. And I want to give you more beyond your dreams, plans, or desires.

What I have for you is beyond your imagination. I want to give you more, but your hands are already too full of what you are holding on to.

I’ve come to give you an abundant life full of victory.

Lord, my sins are piled so high that I can’t see my way out. I’ve lost my courage, my confidence and my assurance.

But You, Lord God, are Almighty. Could you, would you reach down and pull me out of this mudhole I dug for myself?

Child, I love you. And yes, I will lift you up to victory, the one I have planned for you. Quit looking back and beating yourself up for your battles lost.

Instead, look up to Me, for I am holding your victory.

Thank you Lord. Your mercy endures forever.

VICTORY IN JESUS

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. . . Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, Psalms 51 :10-11 NKJV

“If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free [from the penalty of sin]. John 8:32-32 AMP

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! . . . Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalms 103: 1, 5

What Would You Choose?

What would you choose?
What would you choose?

Child, what would you choose? What if you were called to give up your pleasure food in exchange for the pleasure of My glory?

Oh Lord, I want to choose You. But I am weak.

Child, quit saying you’re weak. You are strong. https://talkingtomyweightlosscounselor.com/say-i-am-strong/

If you’re full of My Presence, then you’re strong. For I AM all powerful. And I can pull You out of this miry mud of self-indulgence.

Don’t you know that if you have My Presence, you have all you need?

What would you choose?

My children need to witness victory in the lives of those who identify with Me. My children need to see victory, not defeat.

People can lose weight with a strict diet. But you know it’s the minds and the hearts that needs changing. The desire for pleasure foods needs to be replaced with a desire for My Presence.

Habits need changing. You have the habit of relaxing after your evening meal with your pleasure food. So why are you seeking pleasure for that which does not satisfy?

Don’t you know yet that true satisfaction and peace beyond comprehension can only be found in My Presence? So what would you choose?

Yes Lord, I want Your Presence and the fullness of Your Holy Spirit.

Then come to Me, My Child. Come into My Presence. Allow Me to bless you with My Holy Spirit. I’m calling you forth to a higher walk, a higher place of victory.

Now come forth into My Presence and allow Me to fill You with Myself.

Yes Lord, here I am. Take my struggles, my defeat, my pride, my worry, and all my concerns. Take My heart and mind, including my thoughts.

Child, I don’t take anything from you. Not anything. You have to give them to me. Satan steals and takes. But I only receive as you give to Me. I never take.

Okay Lord. Then I give you my heart, my mind, my will, and my pride. I also give You all my failures, mess-ups, defeats, and shame. Lord, I’m a mess.

So what would you choose?
What would you choose?

But I give myself to thee.

Child, I will change you into what I designed you to be, My victorious child, full of My glory, My Presence, and My Holy Spirit.

The oil of Gilead will anoint your eyes so you see the truth versus the lies of Satan. You will know the truth. Therefore the truth will set you free to live a life of victory.

Satan has enjoyed beating you down. But now I’ll lift you up, clean you off, heal your wounds, and fill you with the nourishment of My Holy Spirit.

Then you can go forth as My servant spreading forth My joy and love to others.

First you’ll begin with those you love the most. Then you’ll spread My love and joy to the others I place in your life.

It will not be a chore to you. But rather, you’ll be filled with excitement and the thrill of victory. Then you will spread victory to others as well.

So what would you choose?

Child, in My Presence you will have peace as never before. Come to Me all throughout your day, evening morning, and noon.

Then watch what I do in your life and the lives of those you influence.

So what would you choose?

WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

Evening and morning and at noon I will pray and cry aloud. And He shall hear my voice. He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me. Psalms 55: 17-18

Pray with without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV

Let the weak say, “I am strong.” Joel 3:10

The Gluttony Monster

The Gluttony Monster

Lord, I think this gluttony monster comes to my house every evening. And when the compulsion from this monster hits, I don’t even stop to think. It consumes me.

I need more discipline, consistency, strength, and the power to say ‘No’ to this food obsession, this gluttony monster. I can’t change myself because I am powerless over myself.

But My Child, I have all the power you need.

Lord, My day starts out so good. I eat appropriate and sufficient. But then after supper, here comes this gluttony monster to consume my health.

Yes Child,  I see it all. My heart hurts for you. And I long to set you free. It is My will to set you free. 

So Lord, what can I do? I know You said to semi-fast for 40 days. But ever since that day, I’ve been invaded by this overwhelming compulsive to overeat. In fact, I’ve been eating like crazy.

I know You said, ‘Come to You’. But I haven’t stopped eating long enough to ‘come’ to You. Lord, I don’t know what to do.

I want to please You. I want to love You as I should. But here I am, all messed up.

I can pray words, “Create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit”. But they are only words, just words, unless I change.

Child, I have watched you and I’ve been waiting for you even as you fell. But I’m always waiting to catch you. I will help you, for I have the power.

You will win over this addiction, over this gluttony monster. You will defeat this compulsion for I created you to be a victor. I created you for victory.

So Lord, what do I do?

Pray without ceasing. Every hour of every day come to Me. Check it off your time schedule if you must. But you must come to Me.  

Lord, I do want You to create in me a clean heart. And I long for a steadfast spirit before You. Fill me with Your sweet Presence daily and forevermore.

Child, I intend to. You will win over this compulsive gluttony monster. For I am THE WINNER and I created you to be a winner too. Therefore expect victory.

Be strong in the Lord
There are no perfect people, but God has already planned for your victory.

Expect victory. You will have your victory for I have already designed it. I am holding it in My hand. And you are a winner. You will win.

It may look like defeat to you. But when I look at you, I see a winner. You are Mine. You are a winner for I have already declared it so. 

Now get up and wash your face. Go forth today marching in your victory

Thank you Lord for not giving up on me.

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

FEED OH THIS

You have already won a victory . . . because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 1John 4:4 NLT

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-4 ESV

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. . . . James 4:7-8

You Chose Another

You chose another.
You chose another. But My child, choose My Presence instead.

Child, you chose another. But you could have had My Presence last night. My child, I want you. Choose Me.

I’ve called you to a higher purpose other than to listen to others and eat your treats.

You could have had Me, but instead you chose another.

Oh Lord, I feel like such a failure.

You’re never a failure. Instead, you’re a lesson.

Child, you’re learning with new learning everyday and I want to teach you. It’s not your “to do” list. It’s not the voice of others . But it is I who will take you into your victory.

Victory is not getting it all done. Victory IS My Presence. I gave you a way out when your friend called. But you ate your snack afterwards.

Child, when you’re looking in the refrigerator or the cabinet for something to eat, what you’re really craving is My Presence.

My Lord.

You could’ve come to Me. But you chose another.

Oh Lord, I’m so messed up.

You chose another.
Choose My Presence, for I AM peace.

Child, come to Me and I will heal you. I’ll heal you both inside and out. It’s the inside of you, your spirit that determines your behavior and your actions.

Lord, help me.

Child, your mind is on too many different things. And you have much confusion, anxiety, fear, and busywork. You strive to get it all done. The highest call you have is stay in My Presence. That’s your highest calling, not your job, not your housework, and not your hobbies.

Instead, I’m your highest calling. Your attention is on too many different things. I want your focus on My Presence. Seek Me and I will supply for all your needs. You stress unnecessarily over many things.

You chose another. But I will lead you to your victory.
You chose another. But it is I who will lead you to your victory.

Child, as long as you have My Presence, you’ll have My peace. Have no worries for I’m holding you in My hands. . . And as is My will. . . It will be done.

Remember back when you used to snatch times, different times in your day to talk to Me? Do that again. Do it again.

You need Me. You need My Presence to direct you. Satan desires to destroy your future and the influence you have on others. But I will overcome. Now come to Me to a higher place of victory.

No longer walk in defeat for I have plans for you a hope and a future, not to harm you, but to prosper you.

FEED ON THIS

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. Psalms 37:23-24 NLT

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. Jeremiah 29:11-12 NLT 

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. Romans 8:37 AMP

 

Commitment to Victory

Lord, I’m making a commitment to victory, 40 days of victory. Yes, I’ve lost 35 pounds, but I keep going up and down on the scales depending on what I eat each day. And yes, I’ve been sloppy with my eating, taking a few bites here and a few bites there. Overall, it’s always been small things. Continue reading Commitment to Victory

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

Lord, I Want Your Love

 

Lord, I want your love. Lord, I want Your love

 

Lord, I want Your love. Help me to return to You as My first love, my greatest love. Help me to obey You in all my ways especially in dealing with other people and my food issues.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 

What do You want me to write? Do You even want me to write? Lord, I don’t know what it is that You want for me or with me for that matter.

And I’m so concerned about all my grandchildren, and their parents too, living in the society of today. Lord, I don’t know what I can do.

Child, pray My will be done in their lives. 

Lord, help me to only speak words of affirmation, encouragement, and of Your love for them. Keep my mouth shut, clamped shut when, or if, it is full of criticism or discouragement.

Also Lord, help me to love You in a way that it pleases You. I want a real relationship with You, not just the mechanics of routine prayers and Bible reading. In fact, I want a deep relationship with You. Overall, I want Your Presence with me at all times, throughout all my life.

Lord, I want Your love.
Lord, I want Your love.
We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 

Help me to turn away completely from this unnecessary food that so easily tempts and  entraps me to compulsively overeat.

Lord, I do want to lose weight, and I also want to help Hubby lose his extra weight too. But I don’t want him to be skinnier than me. How embarrassing that would be.

So help me to yield Myself to Thee completely and resist temptation to put my face in the feeding trough.

Child if you seek and follow My will concerning your food, you will lose weight. I will lead you and you will have success.

Also Lord, when I write my prayers, thoughts, or even the words You spoke to my heart, I always consider if this would be good to write in this blog. Lord, I want our talks to be about our relationship, not the blog. But if I am to write for the blog, then lead me and help me to organize my time schedule to write and publish.

Child, it will be so. 

Lord, I want to know You like those people who say they have a “word” from You. I want to love You like they love You. Also, I want others to see You in me and be attracted to You because of it. Help me to please You in all my ways.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 
Lord, I want Your love
Lord, I want Your love.
I want a deep relationship with You as I have never had before. I want a new awakening, deep with my spirit.

Make me hungry for You. Yes, I want to be hungry for You. And I want a deeper walk with You too.

Lord, what do You want from me?

Your love, My child, I want your love. 

Lord, these people who say they have a “word” from You spend hours in reading Your Word and in prayer too. I don’t have hours due to my job and my home responsibilities.

Child, it is not your hours I want. It is your heart I want. I want your love.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 
Lord, I want Your love.
Lord, I want Your love.

 

Change Your Self-Talk 2

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I’m strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

______________________________________

Thank you Lord for this weight loss, even though last night right before bedtime I binged on No Sugar Fudgesicles and satsumas.

Change your self-talk to “I am strong. These have no power over me.”

 

Change your self-talk to, “I’m stronger than these.”

 

First thing this morning, I woke up with self-talk, “I’m so stupid. Why did I do that? I know better. Why am I so stupid?”

Then when I stood on the scales, there was a weight loss. What? . . . How can it be? But there it was, even after standing on twice, still a lower number.

Again more self-talk, “It would have been more weight loss if I hadn’t ate all that before bed. Why did I do it again? Why? I’m so stupid.”

Then the Lord spoke to my heart: “No, you’re not stupid. Change your self-talk. From now on, say to yourself- ‘I am strong. I am delivered and set free.’ This is what you say from now on for you are Mine.

None of Mine are defeated for I AM victorious in all things. So confess who you really are. 

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I am strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

Yes Sir.

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27

Child, I’m your peace. Surely, I’ll break this wall that separates you from your victory. In fact, I’m going to re-create you into a new creature, full of My glory and grace.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Among these we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of body and mind, and so we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. Ephesians 2:3

 But Lord, this describes me, fulfilling the desires of my flesh for more and more food pleasure. So thank you for Your mercy. After so many failures, You still love me. Amazing. And You haven’t given up on me yet.

Child, you can’t do this on your own, in your own power. It’ll be a gift from Me. I’ve already prepared your victory. Now walk in it. Believe it.

— Child, here’s your sign. —

Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. Romans 6:17 NLT

Overall Child, My intent is to set you free. I provided you freedom. Yet you’re like the elephant held entrapped by a small stick tied by a rope.

——————————————————–(Photo copied from PicMonkey)

 

It is and has always been my intent to break that rope and small stick so you can go forth in freedom and your victory.

But it’s your faith that’s weak. Believe I’ve come to set you free. After all, today is your day of salvation. Now walk in your freedom from food bondage. 

Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.

Now Child, break free. I’ve already given you all the power you need to break free. So now believe and let go. 

Again Lord, I ask for a a strong word, a “power” word from You. I know you’ve spoke to my heart many times before. But now, I’ve given up and surrendered to my weakness.

Therefore, could I have a new fresh word from You? Could it be one I could hold on to and would cause my faith to be fully convinced so I can believe?

I Can Do The Impossible

I can do the impossilble
I Can Do The Impossible

I can do the impossible. You know why? Because My Lord told me so. Here’s how the conversation went:

________________________

Lord, here I am today. Overall, yesterday was awesome. Thank you.

To begin with, thank you for the weight loss. That’s a huge surprise considering what I ate yesterday. Amazing.

Child, if only you had followed My will for your eating. Then you would have seen more weight loss.

Well Lord, what do You want me to eat today? Or do I fast today, given what all I ate yesterday?

But . . .  can I have ice cream for breakfast first?

Yes, a measured amount.

Can I have it now?

So you want to have ice cream before our time together?

How about during our time together?

Yes, you can have your way. But realize what you are choosing – ice cream – ahead of Me. 

Oh Lord, I’m sorry. Help me choose You.

In fact Child, I’m trying to help you. But first, you must believe and you must change your self-talk. How many times a day do you say to yourself, “I can’t”?

A  lot.

Faith Comes By Hearing –

So haven’t you heard, “Can’t never could.”? To begin with, change your self-talk to “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Then repeat that to yourself several times a day.

Faith comes by hearing. Change your self-talk and then listen. First of all, say to yourself, “I can do all things through Christ.” Then you can resist the stronghold of ice cream before Me.

Lord, help my unbelief.

Child, I am here for you. And yes, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. For I am the Almighty, Most Powerful God of All, of everything. And I AM on your side helping you. Consider that. Think about that. 

Yes Lord, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.

 

I can do the impossible
This has always been a stronghold all my life. But no more, for I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Now I can do the impossible.

I Can Do The Impossible

. . . From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1-2 AMP

For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible. Luke 1:37 AMP

But He answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ moving in me. 2Corinthinans 12:9 TPT

I just want to obey all You ask of me. So teach me, Lord, for You are my God. Your gracious Spirit is all I need, so lead me on good paths that are pleasing to You, my one and only God! Psalm 143:10 TPT

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
