Lord, even though I ate only two meals today, (three, if You count the apple at breakfast), I gained 2 lbs. in one day. Now how could this be? I don’t understand. I’m so disappointed.
Here I am eating correctly, and then gain weight. I haven’t had any desserts for 23 days, even through Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. None, not even one bite. Lord, what gives?
Child, even though you followed My instructions, some of your portions were rather large. I suggest you cut them down in size. You could also choose to cut out starches. Definitely increase your water intake. Exercise too.
Lord, how do I know this is You and not me from all these years of struggling with my weight and dieting experiences? If I succeed at losing this regained weight, how can I say it was because of You and not in my own power?
Because Child, we both know you have no power to resist food temptations. You have already proven that by your past record. But now, even though it will require a fight, these food temptations will end.
You will win because of My power within you. I will fill you with My power to say ‘No’ to foods not good for your body. Also I will provide you the power to say ‘Yes’ to foods that are good for your body.
Therefore you will know it is only through My power that you can win this war, this life-time struggle with food compulsion/addiction. But know this, My Child, you will win because I AM on your side. You will win. Expect your victory. Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me and I will see to it you win this victory. For I am Victory indeed!
Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.
Note: After writing this post yesterday, this morning those two pounds were gone. Praise God!
