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? Continue reading Buffets-Tools of Satan?
Lord, here I am with crumbs on my face. You’ve blessed me so much and yet I have food all over me. (*Don’t worry- This was hand-written last month.) But Lord, what would You like to talk about? Continue reading Be Confident
Child, you get to choose your path and how long it takes to achieve your victory.
Lord, how did I get here?
You chose where you are now.
So how do I get back where I was?
Child, you choose.
Change my heart Lord so that I choose You first and above all.
For now, Child, you’re an example of backsliding. But you can change that and choose to be an example of forgiveness, restoration, and deliverance.
Yes, I can deliver you again, but this time it will take more effort on your part. You will have to make a choice everyday. Every hour and every minute, you will be faced with decisions. And you will choose one way or another.
You can continue as a backslider or you can become an overcomer.
Books can’t give it to you. Even My Bible can’t give it to you unless You choose to open your heart and apply its truth. Choose deliverance and I will provide all you need for success. But if you continue in your backsliding ways, I’ll step back and let you have your way. I won’t leave you, but I will let you have your way. So what will it be?
Child, I am here for you.
So Lord, what do I do now?
Child, you already know the way to freedom. deliverance, and victory. You just have to decide. You know what to do.
Remember sin takes you further than you want to go, costs you more than you want to pay, and keeps you longer than you want to stay. Now choose wisely, My child.

See I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to Him, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30: 16 NIV
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. Isaiah 41:10 NLT
When praying, use caution. Be careful what you pray for because you just might get it. Sometimes God answers your prayers just to teach you. Continue reading When Praying, Use Caution
My child, give Me one week, just one week. Don’t weigh yourself and don’t think of your size 10’s in the closet. Don’t even think of your goal of losing two pounds a week, or that you’re behind in your self-made schedule for weight loss. Above all, don’t worry or even consider if you can lose 30 pounds by the end of November. By all means, let these concerns go and give them to Me.
In fact this week I want you to focus on Me and My will for you. Don’t eat or even say a blessing of rote words before a meal until you consult Me first. Ask and seek My will about what you are to eat. Then listen and follow how I lead you. Try this for one week, just one week. Do you think you can do this for just one week?
Yes Sir, I can try.
There’s no trying, I’m asking if you are willing to keep a commitment to Me for just one week. Try My way instead of your way. If you focus on seeking My will, My advice, and follow My way without question or hesitation, then I promise you a guaranteed significant weight loss at the end of this week. Now do you trust me?
Think of this as a semi- fast. You will only eat as I direct you, what to eat and when to eat. Now trust Me for I know your body. After all, I created it. You are different from everyone else. Know that I will help you if you trust Me with all your heart, even to the food you put in your mouth.
First seek my will. Then listen and obey all My directions for you. Fine tune your spirit ear to hear Me and listen to My words. If you will follow, trust, and obey for just one week, you’ll be surprised. You do want freedom from this bondage of binge eating, don’t you?
Yes Sir. But Lord, I am weak. You know this.
Child, don’t you know? You are weak, but I am strong. If you lean on Me, I’ll provide all the strength you need. You’re still trying to do this in your own power and it won’t happen, for as you said you’re weak. But know this and let it sink into your soul: I AM STRONG. I love you and as you look to Me, I’ll lead you to your victory.
Lord, I do want to do Your will. Yes, it’s more important to walk in Your Presence than it is to go through life. Without You my belly might be full, but my life would be empty. You Lord, are the reason I live.
Child, I love you and I am for you. Now today, let today be a day of victory for you. I may lead and instruct, but it is you who decides which way you’ll go. Know that My way is guaranteed victory. The self-way always leads to defeat and discouragement. Sure, it feels good to be in charge and feel you’re in control. But listen to Me, I died for you. So do you think you can trust Me?
Then choose, My child, this day whom you will follow. Will it be My will, henceforth victory, or your will? Pride in self-sufficiency ultimately leads to defeat, discouragement, and failure. Which will you choose?
Child, I implore you for your own good. I want to teach you how to walk with Me. If you walk in My Presence, I will lead you to your victory.
Yes Sir, I want to follow You and I start out well, but sometimes I mess up along the way. Help me to finish well.
My child, I will help you. Now hold on to Me.
Lord, I want You. Is there something tangible, a type of memorial that I could hold in my hand to help me let go of this food and help me remember to look to You?
Child, I’ll give you a gift today. Look for it.
