Screaming At The Scales

Lord, I’m looking at theses scales and they aren’t going down. I know I’ve messed up a lot, but I’m not eating after supper. I don’t understand. Ahhhhh!

Child, you’re looking at what you see, . . numbers on your scales. I want you to look to Me, not what you see.

As you look to Me, you will be rewarded. As you learn, uh . . . relearn surrender and obedience, then you will be rewarded.

Don’t judge your victories by numbers you see on a box. How many times have I told you this before? As you surrender your will in obedience to Me, then you will be victorious.

It goes against all mankind’s logic that surrender and obedience would bring victory, but I am the Almighty. Mankind’s logic is nothing to Me. My knowledge is incomprehensible to humans.

 

Your job is to trust Me. “Trust and obey, for there is no other way” as the little song goes. There is much truth in children’s little songs. I value hearing the children sing to Me. I look on them with My heart full of love and pride just as their parents and grandparents, even more so.

Lord, what do You want me to do?

Trust Me. Hunger for Me and I will feed you.

Lord, show me how, what, when, and where. Direct me so that I please You and make You proud. Lord, I want to eat at Your table.

Child, you will.

But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4

Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endured to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him. John 6:27

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. John 6:35

    1. Susieshy,
      Well, to be a support for the hubby, at this time I’m trying to eat mostly low carb. My hubby’s doctor told him to lose 20 pounds in two months. I think that’s a little unreasonable, 20 pounds in two months? I’ve only seen that on the front cover of magazines promising you the new weight loss miracle. Hubby is diabetic, so he doesn’t need a lot of carbs. Therefore I thought I’d be his partner for support and figured it couldn’t hurt me either. LOL!

What do you think?
