NO LONGER BROKEN, VICTORIOUS INSTEAD! (Past writings)

 

 

IMG_2007Lord, I confess to You that I love ice cream! I love how it tastes! I love how it feels in my mouth! I also confess to You that I ate two pork chops last night at supper, then I ate chocolate cup cakes and cookies for desert. Lord, I ate all that due to stress and frustration! I am so frustrated, depressed, and disappointed! I feel entrapped in a job that is no longer satisfying.  I am full of doubt, especially self-doubt. If the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, and a broken contrite heart, then I guess I qualify for I certainly feel broken! I feel broken in my spirit for sure and I have no willpower! I am just a broken vessel that cannot hold water!

DO NOT BE AFRAID, FOR I AM WITH YOU!

Good morning Lord! It’s Monday, my weigh-in day, but now I don’t know exactly when to weigh in? I woke up so early this morning, I don’t know what to do? It is now around 3:30 a.m. and I always weigh right after I get up!  I can’t go back to bed now because I am completely awake! Maybe this early morning would just be a good opportunity to spend more quality time with You? But if I drink my coffee now and then wait to weigh myself  later in the day, it will show a weight gain. Oh Lord, what do I do now? When do I weigh?

(Don’t drink your coffee now, just wait to weigh yourself at 4:00a.m. and then you can drink your coffee.) Continue reading DO NOT BE AFRAID, FOR I AM WITH YOU!

WALK BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT!

IMG_9445Lord, I want to stand on those scales really bad! I wonder if I have lost any weight this week?

(Wait My child, obey Me in this! Wait until the appointed time. Remember that your success is not determined by a number from a box you stand on. Your obedience and submission to Me determines your success.)

But Lord, what if I haven’t lost any weight?

(Then, what will you do, My child?) Continue reading WALK BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT!

OH, WHAT A LOVE!

     Lord, I am so hungry now! I want to eat everything, everything I can find! My stomach is even hurting with hunger! Lord, I need you to tell me what to do! I feel as though I am starving now! Lord, I want to eat a whole box of cereal, all the chips, with cheese, and all the cake left over from last week. Lord, I would like to eat a whole can of hot soup with crackers and swiss cheese. Lord, I would like to eat until I am sick and then go to bed. I would like to eat all night while watching anything I wanted on television. Husband is not here and I would have control of the remote. Lord, I feel as though my guts are screaming, screaming loudly with pain . . .”FEED ME NOW!” Continue reading OH, WHAT A LOVE!

     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!
