Lord, is this way of eating to be a lifestyle change? Will I have to eat this way for all my life?
So I can never eat all I want. Will I always have to consider what’s before me and choose wisely? In fact, am I to seek Your wisdom and guidance over everything I put in my mouth, in my mind, and in my spirit too?
So whatever I eat, watch, read, or listen to, I am to consider my choices and then seek Your wisdom over it all. Overall, I am to live a completely yielded life in complete surrender of all my selfishness to Your guidance and wisdom.
Child, I am teaching you all throughout this process of your life. I will lead you as you seek My guidance. And yes, you will be making a lifestyle change. From now on, you are to seek My will in all things, with every thought, word, or action.
Child, I want you to focus on Me and the needs of those around you. Listen to them as they speak. You will learn much. Also I want you to learn from Me. I desire to teach you to listen to Me and follow My guidance without doubt or hesitation.
I want you to be a “follower” of Me, not of others, but Me. So yes, you could say this will be a lifestyle change for you.
Listen to Me. Follow My guidance and obey My will without doubt or hesitation. This is the lifestyle change I desire for you.
So learn to listen as I speak and learn to follow as I lead. The key to your victory is surrendering your will to My will.
Okay Lord, teach me how.
Child, I’m in the process of teaching you now.

Yes Sir. Lord, forgive me for all my diversions, for choosing my own way, and for seeking the words of others for encouragement. Forgive me Lord for I have failed in many ways.
But My child, you are Mine and none of Mine are failures. All of Mine are learners. You are a learner too. THEREFORE YOU ARE NEVER A FAILURE. But you are always a lesson. In fact you are My learner.
Now come to Me, come into My Presence and learn from Me, not others for they are only learners themselves. They are learning from Me.
So allow Me to teach you and then you can learn from Me. Seek My words, not the words of others.

At the Buffet –
Yesterday, you didn’t pray before entering that buffet. Pray first, then seek My will. Do this even over what you eat and you will be satisfied.
Yesterday, you looked at all the choices on the buffet and chose according to your wisdom. But if you had prayed first seeking My will, you would have chosen according to My wisdom and you would have been satisfied.
You thought it was because you didn’t eat enough that caused you to be hungry so soon after. If you had sought My will, you would have been full and satisfied.
Remember, choose Me first and then consider your food options. Seek My will first, and I will lead you to what is best. Not only will it be healthy for you, but it will also be satisfying as well.
Yes Sir. Help me. I really do want more of You.
Child, seek My Presence first and above all else, for then you will be satisfied.
Thank you Lord for Your words of instruction and encouragement.
Child, I plan for your victory. You will have it, for I have planned it. Seek My Presence above all. Then watch and see what I will do.
Yes Sir. Help me keep my focus on You, above all else.

And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for- But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groaning that cannot be expressed into words. Romans 8:26 NLT
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 NKJV
Lord, I don’t want to be double-minded. So help me focus on You, and Your will. Lead to those people You want me to help.
Lord, it seems the world has gone crazy, chaos everywhere, heartache, suffering, sickness, death, confusion, people attacking one another without even thinking about it. Hatred, it seems abounds throughout. Sometimes I think, “Jesus, come take me out of this mess.”
But then I remember all those who are lost. Some were never taught about You or Your love for them. Therefore they never had a chance to know Your love. So what can I expect from them except hatred?
They look at this world’s situation too. They see the chaos everywhere and they have no hope. Lord, send someone into their lives that will share Your love with them.
And Lord, I ask for forgiveness because sometimes I respond in anger to these haters, especially on social media. I forget they don’t know You.
How can I show Your love for them if I respond in hatred back at them? So what am I to do?
Child, pray before you respond to others. Up to now you’ve just responded without thoughtful consideration. In fact, you responded through your emotions many times.
Yes Sir. (Hanging my head in embarrassment)
Now Child, I’m instructing you to pray and seek My guidance before you open your mouth in response to others. Pray before you speak, type a word, or even before you “share” the thoughts of others.
God help me.
I want all My children to be witnesses of My love and not respond to others out of hatred. So pray before responding. Take a minute of your time before you respond to anyone. No more immediate responses. Seek My wisdom first.
Lord, help me. A while back, I saw a sign that said, “Lord, put Your arm around my shoulder and Your hand over my mouth.” I need this. Help me.
Child, if you seek My wisdom before you respond, then I will grant you words of wisdom to share. I will put My Word in your mouth. I will lead you and I will guide you.
Lord, it’s going to be hard. This is a year of politics. You know my feelings.
Yes Child. That’s why I’m giving you instructions. This year is going to be a war of words and chaos everywhere. But it’s always been that way since sin first entered Eden.
So remember to pray first before responding to others. Keep your focus to seek My wisdom before you speak.
Also, follow these same instructions before you eat too. Pray first. Then seek My wisdom. Do this before opening your mouth either to speak or to eat. Then you will have victory.
Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.
Lord, I also ask that Your love wash over this land and all people groups. Fill all of us with Your love and mercy. Help us to show Your love and mercy to each other. You are our only hope. Thank you for hearing our prayers.

Buffets-tools of Satan? I think so. As I looked back over time, I then realized weight gain started when we were on that cruise ship. All those buffets, so many options and so much food.
