Temptation, everywhere I look. Lord help me. Forgive my stupid sins. Help me to please You in all I do, don’t do, say, don’t say, eat, don’t eat, and even what I think, or don’t think. Fill me with a greater desire for You versus anything else, even my food. Let me feed on You Presence. Thanks for loving me even though I don’t deserve it.
Now that I’m here Lord, could You tell me why do I overeat like I do?
Because you need Me. The next time you’re tempted to overeat, come sit with Me and talk with Me about it first. After all you’ve been through, don’t you yet know I am here for you?
But Lord, I don’t know what to do?
Just come to Me. That’s all you need to do. Just come to Me.
Talk with Me before looking at your phone, eating, or even reading your devotions, etc. Talk with Me first. Trust Me.
Lord, it’s myself I don’t trust. So far my record is “untrustworthy”.
Child, I am not part of your “to do” list. So you can check off: 1.Talk to the Lord-done. 2. Read the Bible- done. 3. Pray for others-done. Child, it’s not My desire to be checked off your “to do” list.
I want to be your “all”, and your source. So come to Me first and above all else. Bring Me your hurts, your fears, your worries, and your plans too’ Let us discuss them before you go forth.
Bring me those you love and give them to Me. Trust Me to take care of them. You worry yourself sick. Why don’t you just give them all to Me? Then sit back in My Presence, watch, and see what I will do. Trust Me with it all. You are too burdened trying to solve it all. Just pray your desires for them. Then let it all go into My hands for I have big hands, big enough to handle it all. After all, don’t you remember the song you sang as a child? “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands.” It’s true. I do have it all in My hands.
So quit trying to take it out of My hands to hold in yours. Your hands aren’t big enough. You have no power to change anything, not even yourself. Let go, My child, and give it all to Me.
I want your heart and your mind at peace. And true peace can only be found in My Presence. So come here. Let Me fill you with My peace. As you spend your time with Me, your peace will increase and you will find that all you have been concerned about is being taken care of in ways you can’t imagine. In fact, you can’t fix any of it, not even yourself. So let it all go.
Know that I am with you. In fact, it’s My desire to fill you with My peace, My joy, and My love. So come to Me and let Me fill you. What I have to offer you is more fulfilling than anything you can imagine.
Now come here, My child. Come sit with Me and talk with Me.
