YOU ARE NOT ALONE! (written on May 22, 2013)

IMG_7200Lord Jesus, here I am. I don’t even know what to say?    Uh . . . well . . . I got there. I hit a new mark not seen since 2001. I now weigh 241.2 pounds. Oh why, why did I keep eating until I arrived at that number? Why?  Insanity describes all my actions, or at least those about food. Continue reading YOU ARE NOT ALONE! (written on May 22, 2013)

IS ANY TOO HARD FOR GOD?

IMG_9563[I wrote this over a year ago. I have struggled with this overeating issue for most of my life, but praise God, I now see victory!]

Good morning, Lord. How? How? How can You stand me?

(My child, I love you!)

Lord, I don’t deserve Your love at all.

(I do love you!)

Lord, why would You love me? Why? Continue reading IS ANY TOO HARD FOR GOD?

HOPE, RENEWED, REAWAKENED HOPE!!

IMG_9874Lord, as I look back on my life and now as I look at my body, I see all the failures of the past!

(My child, I see you as My creation, “the finished product, perfect in every way”!  I am in the process of  shaping you into who I want, a “vessel of My Holy Spirit” walking forth in My Presence, showing forth evidence of My Power, and  showing forth My Victory in your life! My child, I give unto you, “Hope”, renewed, reawakened “Hope”!) Continue reading HOPE, RENEWED, REAWAKENED HOPE!!

THE VICTORY CAKE!!

English: Chocolate cake with chocolate frostin...

Oh man,  . . . I looked at that chocolate cake setting on my kitchen counter! My friend brought it over and my mother in law is eating it, but she eats little small slivers. I have not wanted any of it until now. . .  As I just walked by, it called my name! Continue reading THE VICTORY CAKE!!

DIRECT MY STEPS AND MY EATING TOO!

IMG_9855— For His eyes are on the ways of man, and He sees all his steps.    Job 34:21 NKJV

Thank you Lord, for watching over all my steps. Thank you for ordering them according to Your plans.

— A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.   Proverbs 16:9 NKJV

Thank you Lord so much for directing my steps. It is nice to know that You are in charge! It takes the burden off me so that I don’t have to worry about my day. After all, it is now Your responsibility. Now whatever happens, I can look to You and Your plan for this day. Continue reading DIRECT MY STEPS AND MY EATING TOO!

JUST TRUST ME- GOD

IMG_9502

Lord, . .  a one pound weight GAIN!!! How can this be??? I have followed what I thought was ‘Your’ eating plan for me! I am eating only three meals a day and what I thought was half portions. I have eaten small deserts with each meal, but I thought it was acceptable to this eating plan. I thought I was just to focus on smaller portions and only three meals a day. Lord, . . . I just know my body is weird! Continue reading JUST TRUST ME- GOD

GOD CAN!!!

       Lord, lead me according to Your will for today. Lord, I ask for forgiveness for all my sins of gluttony.

(My child, I have given you the gift of healing from this bondage of overeating. But as of yet, you have not accepted it! Accept this gift, My child. It is not something you earn, for I have freely given it to you! Now reach out and take this gift of mercy and healing. Be set free from this bondage and oppression now in My Name-Jesus! Be set free and delivered completely! Go forth in My power the power of the Holy Spirit! Those I have set free are free indeed!) Continue reading GOD CAN!!!

YOU WILL BE FREE, FREE INDEED!

Praise God for setting me free!
Praise God for setting me free!

Written on a Saturday morning after a party:

—-Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. . . . . . Romans 8:26 NKJV

Lord, do You still love me even when I sin? Last night, at a Sunday School party I really overate! I turned completely away from the “eating plan” that You directed me to! But Lord, I enjoyed every bite so much that I just threw caution away and ate until I became bloated!  I binged on sweet pickles and cinnamon bread of all things, but Lord, they were so good! Lord, do You still love me even when I sin?

(Yes My child, I love you like no other! I died for you while  you were still immersed in your sin, remember?)

Yes Lord, I remember. Help me to turn away from the weight of this sin that so easily besets me!

(My child, I see you as finished and complete, standing glorious before Me without spot or wrinkle.)

— I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of   righteousness, . . .           Isaiah 61: 10 NKJV

—- There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.             Romans 8:1-2 NKJV

(My child, I did not come to condemn you.  I came to set you free, free indeed!)

— Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.         John 8:36 NKJV

(Rejoice in My love, My child, for I have come to set you free and you will be free indeed!)

PRAYER IS BATTLE!

20130911-191638.jpg

Lord Jesus, forgive my anger. Help me to have the attitude that please You. Lord, I want You to fill me, not the anger.

(Let go, My child, of what is in your hand and I will bless you. Let go of your self-desires and I will increase My Spirit within you.)

Lord, help me, guide me.

— I will instruct you, I will teach you the correct path, I will guide you with My eye.    Psalm 32:8 NKJV

—- Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good consciences, and from a sincere faith.                I Timothy 1:5 NKJV

Lord, give me the kind of love that pleases You.

— And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.                 I Timothy 1:14 NKJV

Thank you Lord, for Your grace, and Your love. Help me to please You! I am so sorry about my behavior.

— Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in sight of God our Savior.               I Timothy 2: 1-3 NKJV

Lord, am I to pray for him and his co-workers?

(My child, praying is battle in warfare. Prayers are what moves mountains. Do you think he is more powerful than I?)

No Lord, he is not more powerful than You, it is that I have just given up!

Child, My warriors do not give up! Instead, My warriors rise up!)

Well Lord, show me, teach me how to pray for him because he irritates me with his words and I don’t agree with anything he says!

(My child, I will teach you. Pray first that My Will be done, that witnesses minister to him the truth and then pray for his heart to change.)

Alright Lord, may Your Will be done in this place, here on earth just as in heaven. Lord, send to him witnesses of Your glory and grant him a heart change. Lord, Your will be done in this situation. Amen
