God Given Boundaries

God given boundaries

God given boundaries aren’t to punish or rob us from pleasure. Instead, these God given boundaries increase our self-control. Thereby increasing our confidence. Overall, if we stay within these boundaries, they’ll guarantee our total victory.

God given boundaries aren’t to helm us in. Instead they’ll bless us with peace and joy and increase our victories.

Who would have known? In reality, rules are good. They bless you with your personal victorious living.

Thank you Lord for these God given boundaries.God given boindaries

Now Lord, I ask forgiveness for yesterday’s sins, especially the overeating. Not only did the consequences reveal themselves on the scales this morning, but the sense of shame hung itself around my neck.

Lord, I do want to make You proud. Overall, I want to please You in all things, even to what I eat. Thank you for not giving up on me.

Child, I will never give up on you. I never give up on any of My children. For I love each and every one right where they are. God given boundaries

 I have a plan for each and every life. It is a plan for their personal victory and abundant life. If only they would seek Me, then they’d find amazing love, real joy, and supernatural peace, even within the storms of life. After all, I AM what they are seeking for. I AM ALL.

Lord, I’ve tried so hard to eat correctly only to fail again. I’ve fasted, only to binge again after the fast. Lord, I’ve tried again and again only to fail over and over.

Today is the day of salvation. So make it your focus to walk in your victory for today, the victory I already have planned for you. 

Don’t turn to the right or to the left. Just focus on My will for you today and you’ll achieve your victory today. Because I have already planned your victory. Remember your future victory. http://talkingtomyweightlosscounselor.com/2019/11/01/remember-your-victorious-future/

Thank you Sir.Lies or Truth

Child, I’m your source of strength. So stay within the boundaries of what I have already told you, three meals a day, no snacks, and half portions. As a result of staying  within the lines of My boundaries, you’ll gain victory versus extra weight. Then you’ll become the masterpiece I have planned for you to be.

Trust Me, for I know all. Trust Me, for I am your source of victory. Now come to the light of My glory. Child, for I AM your victory. So come to Me and allow Me to fill you with My Holy Spirit.

Yes Sir. Here I am. Totally, I give myself to You. Forgive my sins of self-pleasing. Help me to turn away from these sins of self. Also help me give my whole self to You and Your will for my life.

Here I am. I give myself to You. So do with me as You will. Guide me and lead me according to Your will . Thank you for another chance at life, the life You have planned for me. Overall, it’s a new life of victory with a new beginning.

Finally, thank you Lord for not giving up on me.

For this is how much God loved the world- He gave His one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in Him will never perish but experience everlasting life. God did not send His Son into the world to judge and condemn the world, but to be its Savior and rescue it. John 3:16 TPT 

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with My victorious right hand. . . .  For I hold you by your right hand – I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, “Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you. Isaiah 41: 10, 13 NLT

“I – yes, I alone- will blot out your sins for My own sake and will never think of them again.” Isaiah 43: 25 NLT

But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved.) . . .  God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Ephesians 2: 4, 8 NLT

I pray that from His glorious unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3: 16,17 NLT

Don’t Let The Serpent Steal Your Testimony

 

“Don’t let the serpent steal your testimony,” the speaker stated as she stood in front of  listening ladies. She looked at each lady in the group and repeated, “Don’t let the serpent steal your testimony.”

. . . Lord, she doesn’t know me. So how did she know I was struggling with feelings of defeat. How did she know? I sense You’re smiling because You know how she knew.   IMG_2353 Continue reading Don’t Let The Serpent Steal Your Testimony

Almost 200 pounds gone! (From My House)

  IMG_5654 Lord, I want to scream! Hubby’s fussing, “Get this house clean. Get this clutter out. I want my house free of clutter. Look at this mess. Your friend’s house isn’t cluttered like this.” Grrrrrrrr! Fighting words. Lord, help me not yell at him.

IMG_6197Give me patience. I don’t want lessons, I just want to get through this. Help me keep my mouth shut. (Uh-oh.) Lead me as to what is best and Your will.

Before when I was anxious or stressed at others, I ran to ice cream for comfort. I ran to anything sweet to sooth my feelings and kept my mouth shut. Now that I’m following Your plan for my eating, I have these emotions I don’t know how to handle. It seems I’m gritting my teeth daily just to get through the day. People that didn’t used to bother me now irritate me to no end. Lord, I need help. HELP! Today, it’s him, the one I love.

Listen to him, My child, for I have given him a spirit of wisdom that I didn’t give you. I gave you a heart-cry for others that I didn’t give him. I created both of you and put you two together to serve My purposes. Do not criticize what I created.IMG_6188

For God is not  of confusion but of peace, . . . I Corinthians 14:33 NKJV  

My child, you tend to get full of religious, spiritual pride. I also see selfishness and greed. That’s all clutter in your life. Let it all go. Come to Me. Let Me fill you with Myself.

Let go of these material things you can touch and see for I intend to fill you full of things you cannot touch and see. These are of greater value than these objects you see and touch. Let go My child of what you hold in your hand so that I can fill your hand with what I have for you. You can’t receive when your hand is closed. Let go,  for I have much to give you.

 There is too much clutter in all of your life. I want to empty you out so that I can fill you with Myself.

Does this look like 200 pounds? The Home of Grace called for donations. They’ll pick it up. I cleaned out three closets and de-cluttered the house per Hubby’s request.

Yes Sir, I want all that You have for me. Help me to let go of what is not important to You. (And help Hubby too.)

And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.”  Isaiah 25:9

Let all things be done in decently and in order.                  I Corinthians 14:40

Then the priests went into the inner part of the house of the Lord to cleanse it, and brought out all the debris that they found in the temple of the Lord to the court of the house of the Lord. . . .  2 Chronicles 29:16

Lord, I guess if Your priests had to clean house and bring out all the debris, then I shouldn’t complain. By the way Lord, did You know that we had out-of-town company  coming? Hubby was proud of my work and our house. Thank you Lord for helping me.

The Guest bedroom, all clean and fresh. Totally uncluttered.

The now uncluttered dining room.

 

Hubby cleaned off the patio where we have our morning coffee.
The now uncluttered family room. God gave me the rug. The name under the corner is “Victory”. How about that.

The most peaceful spot in the house. This is where I meet with God for my counseling sessions. My grandchildren call this, “The Prayer Room”. Hubby calls it, “The Parlor.” But I have my exercise bike in there too.

 

GIFT OF LOVE

 

IMG_3034 Lord, I disappointed You, didn’t I? I knew exactly when I messed up. It was those last two pieces of candy. My feelings were hurt,  I was upset, and I thought they would make me feel better.  As I looked at the candy I felt the draw of Your love saying, “Come to Me. Bring Me your wounded heart. You won’t find love in this candy. Let My love sooth your hurt.”

I felt encouraged and had hope again.  “I don’t need those last two candies. But . . . why not? Go ahead, eat them.” So I did. Continue reading GIFT OF LOVE
