YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE! (Written on May 16,2013)

Lord, I bought the book, “Dairy of a Fat Housewife” because I have indeed fallen and I can’t get up!

(My child, I am here!)

Lord, I have had my face down in the feeding trough! I now come before You with the crumbs still on my face and my belly swollen to its fullest capacity. I have run to my sin eagerly and with only a sight hesitation. Previously, I made a vow to fast and eat only one meal a day for two weeks. Now, what have I actually done? I put my face down in the feeding trough, then when I get out of the trough I graze in the field of pleasure foods. Lord, we have talked about this so many times.

I am coming before You, laying down the sacrifice of all my extra snacks and sweets on Your holy altar as my ‘sin’ offering.”

( “My child, I gave My life already as a sacrifice for your sins. Sacrifice is not required from you, My child, what I desire from you is your love and your obedience.”)

1 Samuel 15:22 NKJV:  So Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight  in burnt offerings  and sacrifices, as in obeying  the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams.


     I have lost 13 lbs. since Nov. 1st. Wow! I know that it is not much, but it excites me and gives me hope. I am so thankful that God has yet again extended His hand of mercy toward me. He has given me another chance to become the person that He created. The extra weight hanging off my Continue reading LOST 13 LBS! WOW!
