Lord, last week I had a dream in which I saw the number 8747. What can this mean? When I googled it, “The Dictionary of Bible Themes” revealed this number represents false gods. What? Did You send this dream to warn me of danger when I use food for comfort or when I use a credit card to supply what we have need of? Are credit cards false providers, thereby false gods who entrap?
HOPE AND VICTORY
I have joined a writer’s group that submits a story every week based on a scripture cue. I would like to share them with you, although they won’t all relate to weight loss. Then again, they may. Hope you enjoy.
I have enjoyed writing for this group. My stories are a little odd, but I pray asking God for guidance each week. I also draw from my personal life/feelings as I write about the characters. It’s fun. I enjoy it.

I thought maybe this was just extra skin due to my weight loss. (64 lbs.) “Could my skin just be loose like that of an old hound dog?” Continue reading WATER FOR LIFE
THE TRAFFIC LIGHT OF GOD!
Alright Lord, I hear you calling. I am so sorry that it took me so long to get out of bed to talk with You. Here I am, lead me, teach me. What is it that You want to talk to me about?
(Choices. Each life is full of choices. You choose what to wear, what to eat, where to go, and how to use your time. You choose who to love, and who not to love. You choose who to forgive, and sadly, who not to forgive. What do you choose to put before your eyes? What do you choose to enter in through your ears? Continue reading THE TRAFFIC LIGHT OF GOD!
