Entangled in Food Addiction

Lord, I’ve become entangled in food addiction again. I’ve been in this trap of defeat for several years now. Really all my life I have struggled with my weight and food addiction.

What’s humiliating is that after You healed me with a weight loss miracle of losing 90 pounds in 2014, I backslid. Yes, in 2017, I backslid and regained 30 0f those pounds.

Although I’ve maintained a weight loss of 60 pounds, I’m ashamed of regaining those 30 pounds. And now I’ve lost & regained the same 10 pounds over & over since 2020.

Lord, I wanted to help others defeat their food addiction, compulsive overeating, binge eating, gluttony, and bloating misery. But how can I help others when I, myself, am entangled in food addiction again?

Yes, here I am now due to my own wrong choices of yesterday. Lord, would You help me again to climb out of this hellhole of my own creation?

Entangled in Food Addiction

I have no strength to resist temptation, but I do want to help others climb out of their hellholes of food addiction. So how can I help them?

Child, I’m full of Almighty power- stronger than any other source. I am ALL power, stronger than your electricity and more powerful than lightening.

Don’t you think I have the power to defeat your food compulsions?

Yes Lord.

Then My Child, why don’t you come to Me first, before you put anything in your mouth- including your gum. As you chew your gum, practice thanking Me for your victories. When you chew your food, talk to Me.

As a matter of fact, even before you look at your food, talk to Me first about it. Talk to Me about all your concerns.

Talking to Me will bring you peace, henceforth destroying your need to stress eat. For then you’ll be stress praying instead of stress overeating.

Entangled in Food Addiction

Talking with Me will calm your spirit and mind, henceforth destroying the need for emotional eating. For then you’ll be emotional praying. And I will heal your emotions and fill you Myself with a calm and peaceful spirit. Wouldn’t that be better for you instead of a stuffed, bloated belly?

Talking with Me would bring you the pleasure of My sweet Presence, henceforth destroying the power of pleasure food temptations. And then you’d be experiencing the greatest sweet pleasure of life, My Presence surrounding you and within you.

When you’re full of My Presence, then you’re also full of My power and strength. Overall, you’d be full of My peace and My love.

Temptations would no longer defeat you for then you’d be walking in My power and My strength.

Now what do you choose, My Child?

Lord, I choose You. I want You. I want to be free, not entangled in food addiction. But Lord, I’m so weak. Would You help me, even though I backslid due to my own bad choices?

Child, the more of your time you spend in My Presence, the stronger you’ll become. You’ll be walking in My power.

Now come to Me for I love you. And I long to give you victory throughout all your life. As a matter of fact I long to grant all of My children victory over sin, shame and defeat.

I intend for all of My children to live victorious forevermore. For I AM victory. So all of Mine will be victorious too, as they seek to follow Me.

Lord, I’ve let myself become entangled again in food addiction by my own wrong choices. Please set me free from this prison, the one I created for myself. Help me make wise choices that will honor you.

CHEW ON THIS

Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your Name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of Your goodness to me. Psalms 142: 7 NIV

Come quickly, Lord, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Let me hear of Your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to You. . . . Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your gracious spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalms 143: 7,8,10 NLT

At last we have freedom, for Christ has set us free! We must always cherish this truth and firmly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past. Galatians 5:1 TPT

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. Galatians 5:13 NIV

Change Your Self-Talk 2

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I’m strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

______________________________________

Thank you Lord for this weight loss, even though last night right before bedtime I binged on No Sugar Fudgesicles and satsumas.

Change your self-talk to “I am strong. These have no power over me.”

 

Change your self-talk to, “I’m stronger than these.”

 

First thing this morning, I woke up with self-talk, “I’m so stupid. Why did I do that? I know better. Why am I so stupid?”

Then when I stood on the scales, there was a weight loss. What? . . . How can it be? But there it was, even after standing on twice, still a lower number.

Again more self-talk, “It would have been more weight loss if I hadn’t ate all that before bed. Why did I do it again? Why? I’m so stupid.”

Then the Lord spoke to my heart: “No, you’re not stupid. Change your self-talk. From now on, say to yourself- ‘I am strong. I am delivered and set free.’ This is what you say from now on for you are Mine.

None of Mine are defeated for I AM victorious in all things. So confess who you really are. 

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I am strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

Yes Sir.

Chew On This

                   But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 

                        I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.                                  Philippians 4:13 

 . . . And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.                                I John 5:4 

 

 

 

Seek Your Face-Lord, How?

Lord, how do I seek Your face?

Seek Your face, how Lord? What does it mean to ‘seek Your face’? I want to seek Your face, but I’m not sure how. Does this mean actually see Your face? Or does it mean seek Your companionship or to bond in friendship? What does it mean?

It means ‘commune’ with Me.

[Commune: to focus on God- converse, talk often with profound intensity, intimate communication or rapport as sharing your heart and mind with God in prayer- an interchange of ideas or sentiments.]

Lord, I want to commune with You. I want You as my very best friend. And I want to please You in all things.

At times I try to follow Your leading, but due to distractions and the voices of others who tell me what to do, I miss out on Your best for me.

Help me to listen and focus on Your voice. Not because I’m trying to be holy and religion, or better than others, but because I want what’s best for me. Your will is best for me. So, in a way could seeking Your will, which is best for me, be selfish?

No Child, I want to give the ‘best’ to all My children. And it pleases Me when they humble their own pride to seek My will for them. After all, this is the ‘best’ for them.

My will is always the ‘best’. 

Also, I enjoy rewarding My children with the ‘best’ just as you enjoy giving to yours. My desire is to bless My children with My love. 

If only they would seek My face and bond with Me in intimate companionship-friendship. They would never be separated, living their lives in constant communion -interaction, allowing My Presence to interact with them in constant interchange of covenant.

Lord, I want covenant with You.

Child, I want you, and all of your family, friends, and associates too. My desire is to commune and covenant with all people.

And it’s the distractions and the voices of others that cause My people to miss what is My best for them.

If My people would focus on a relationship with Me and humble themselves, which means seek My advice, seek My will and follow it, then I would heal their land. 

The Lord says, “I will heal your land if you seek My face.”

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2Chronicles 7:14

_____________________________

But Lord, how do I seek Your face?

Talk with Me, even while eating and drinking you can be in My Presence. Invite Me to be involved in all you do, say, and even to what you think. Invite Me to be with you all throughout your day, within all you do. Throughout your day, interact with Me. I am real, not an imaginary friend, but real, more real than you’ll ever know.

“As you yield yourself to Me, I will increase your joy and peace,” says the Lord.

Overall, it’s My desire to be involved in every detail of your life, even within your thoughts. So invite Me in to be with you. Seek My will and My advice about everything in your life, even about what you eat and drink. Then follow how I lead you. Then follow My advice. 

Seek My face. Seek a relationship with Me and My involvement in every detail of your life. As you seek My involvement in all your activities and even your thoughts, then I can intervene for you. As you open your life, then I can bless you with My peace and My joy and My victory too. 

Not only do I give peace and joy, but I will grant you victory to overcome the difficulties of life. No matter the circumstances or difficulties, I will always bring those who belong to Me through it all to finish in victory. I always bring those who belong to Me to victory. After all, I AM VICTORY. 

_______________________________

For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17 NLT

 

As you seek His face, He will rejoice over you.

Still A Day of Victory

Still A Day of Victory

Still a day of victoryLord, thank you for the joy of yesterday. (Written December 15, 2020.) It was only because You told me it was still a day of victory that I had any joy at all. Every time I thought of the electors voting it made me sad.

But then I remembered You said it was still a day of victory. And You even gave me an answer for that negative critical person.

But Lord, what now?

Child, keep believing, no  matter what your eyes see. Remember, “Don’t look at what you see. Instead, look at Me.”

Know this Child, I AM your source of victory. And I AM the winner. So rejoice for I WIN. Told you I was the Winner. 

But Lord, I don’t understand. How can You be the winner because it looks like the other side won?  

Child, I won! I AM the winner. So rejoice for this in the day the Lord hath made. Therefore rejoice. Today is still a day of victory. Never forget that. Everyday is a day of victory for you because I live in your heart. And I fill you with My love, My forgiveness, and My Holy Spirit. Therefore everyday is a day of victory.

Why do you worry about politics? know ye not yet that I AM in control of all things? Trust Me. Look to Me for I AM your King. Still a day of victory

The joy of the Lord is your strength. Therefore rejoice, be full of joy. 

Lord, I want You

Child, I want you. 

If only those who reject Me could know the joy I bring. Then they would gladly turn their hearts to Me. 

 Even when evil people think they win, they still have no true joy or peace. Their pleasure is short lived. 

But when those who are Mine perceive they have lost, they can still be full of My joy and My peace for I AM the Winner over all.

I grant all of Mine true victory. No matter what they are experiencing here on earth- I AM their source of victory. 

By the way, listen and believe the voices of the prophets for I speak to their hearts just as I speak to all those who are Mine.

Now rejoice the birthday of My Son for that was the beginning of total victory over all- your victory and the victory of all My children.

Rejoice. Peace and goodwill to all men. For I have come to save the world. I have come to save you, even from yourself and your selfishness. For I did not come to condemn the world. Instead, I came to save the world. 

Believe. Keep on believing. Then watch and see what I will do.  

Uh. . . Lord, I really messed up yesterday.

Yes Child, I saw it all. But know I am the God of second, million, trillion chances. Remember?

Yes Sir. 

Now get over it. Remember, “You’re never a failure, only a lesson.” 

I have plans for you, plans for a future and a hope. Therefore rejoice for this is the day the Lord hath made. So rejoice. Rejoice. 

Child, don’t long for greatness. For I long to be “great” in you. Long for My greatness to be in you.

Yes Sir. 

Child, I love you.

Lord, I love you too. 

Child, it is a new year for you coming. Rejoice, for it is a “New Thing” I am bringing forth. 

Lord, is it revival?

Yes My child. But it is and will be bigger than even you can imagine. Therefore rejoice.

Don’t watch your fake news for they are not My voice. Instead, be happy for I AM the winner over all you see and over all you hear. Overall, I declare I AM the Winner. 

Yes Sir. Thank you for talking to me.

Child, I talk to all those who will listen. Now hear what I say. Rejoice, for today is not a day of mourning. No, instead, it is a day of victory. Be happy for I AM the winner. Therefore, you are a winner too.

Words of Victory 

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!  Philippians 4:4 NKJV

For this is how much God loved the world- He gave His one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in Him will never perish but experience everlasting life. John 3:16 TPT

For judgement is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgement. James 2:13 NKJV

But the Lord is is His holy Temple; the Lord still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth. Psalm 11:4 NLT

He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle. Finally He will cause justice to be victorious. Matthew 12:20 NLT

We are stupid sheep

Merry Christmas to you, my friends.
Remember- You are a winner because God said so. YOU ARE A WINNER!

Old Lies or Truth

Old lies or truth, what do you listen to? Specifically what do you speak in self-talk, old lies or truth? (Note: This is a repost from earlier this year, but I need to hear it again. How about you?)

Here’s some examples of old lies and truths I’ve heard:

1. Old Lie: “You’re fat and ugly too.” This was the #1 lie I’ve heard throughout my life, a lie from Satan.                                       This picture was made in May 2013.

Truth: You’re created in God’s image. So you’re beautiful. After all, God don’t make ugly. In fact He delights in you just as you are. And He sings over you too.

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love, He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

2. Old Lie: “You’re a failure. You can’t stick to a diet. You can’t do anything right. Even if you lost weight, you’ll just gain it back.” This lie competes with #1 for first place.Romans 8:28 and trust

Truth: With God on your side, you’re guaranteed victory. “Never a failure. Always a lesson.”

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV 

3. Old Lie : You’re older now, so its harder to lose weight. After all, your metabolism has slowed down to nothing. So why try? Just quit. Eat all you want and enjoy life.

Truth: Eating, although pleasurable, is not the source of joy in life. Living in God’s Presence is the ultimate source of joy. And He will fill you with His joy, true joy unspeakable.

You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your Presence. Acts 2:28 NKJV

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

Old lie or Truth Does life feel like this? It’s an old lie that food will make you feel better. It’s truth that seeking God’s advice will bring peace.

4. Old Lie: Everything’s going wrong today. It seems the world is going crazy. So go ahead, eat some comfort food. Then you’ll feel better. Food is comfort and pleasure. After all, you’re under a lot of stress. So get a treat.

Truth: Overeating causes more stress. When your clothes get tight, the scales go up, and shame comes due to overeating, you have more stress.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6 NKJV

God’s Presence brings peace and victory. So what do you listen to, old lies or truth? You get to choose.

Old lies or truth This is the truth. We have victory because of Jesus.

Believe the truth-http://talkingtomyweightlosscounselor.com/2019/10/01/believe/

 

I Can Do All Things.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

_________________________ 

Lord, I’m sorry about my overeating.

Child, I love you. 

But Lord, what about him, her, or all of them?

I love them too.

_______________________

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

________________________

Child, yesterday you asked for a scripture to hold on to – to claim as a promise- to believe in. Here it is:

– I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

I AM on your side and I will help you because I love you. Now repeat after Me-

– I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

 But Lord, what do You want me to do?

i can do all things
40 Days of Victory
Day 2

To repeat what I’ve told  you many times already. 1. Seek My will in all you do, even to what you eat. 2. Listen as I speak to your heart. 3. Follow My guidance. 4. Obey My words. 5. Trust Me for I work out all things for your good. 

But Lord, even this weight gain?

Yes Child. for this weight that so easily attaches itself to you causes you to seek Me. Therefore I am working it out for your good. 

Although I intend for you to have victory over this food addiction. Also know that it’s not My desire that this freedom process take you 40 years. Of course, you make that choice by your actions. 

Oh Lord, the worst part is I feel that I have sinned and embarrassed You by my weight gain. I can do all things

Child, I will never give up on you. I never give up on any of My children. Rather I’m always drawing on their hearts, calling them unto Myself. 

As a matter of fact, I’m calling on many hearts now to turn to Me for their victory.

My peace is their victory. I offer unto all peace of heart and peace of mind.

After all, My Love is their victory. And I offer unto all a love that cannot be erased. Therefore I will never reject or abandon them no matter what they do or say. In spite of their failures, I’ll always love them. In fact I’ll forever call on their hearts with words of My love. 

Strength I offer them, not physical strength to move boulders. Instead I offer strong inner strength to withstand the pressures of life, especially when it feels overwhelming. Indeed, I am always by their side holding them up in My strength.

Finally Child, know this means ALL THINGS. After all, if I brought you to it, I will bring you through it.

Healing Begins Today

Healing begins today, Child. In fact, I’m going to use all the destruction and death you see now, even wrongful death, to bring about My healing for this land. And it begins today.Healing Begins Today

Lord, we all need You. So can You turn all this around? To begin with, we need revival. Specifically, we need a great move of Your Holy Spirit across this land.

Today, my own son plans to complete a prayer walk around his city’s courthouse. Likewise, maybe we all should do a prayer walk around our cities and throughout our land.

 To begin with Child, no matter what you see, My kingdom will never be destroyed. And My dominion will be for eternity. 

So Lord, can You turn all this around?

Yes Child, I can turn all things around and I will. Now watch and you’ll see what I will do.

Again Child, I tell you I’m going to use all this destruction and death, even wrongful death, to bring about healing to this land. Yes, healing begins today.

Healing Begins Today

Thank you Lord.

Yes Child, healing begins today. 

Also, I did not cause all this strife and heartache. No, Satan did for He is the cause of all destruction and death. His desire is to kill, steal, and destroy. But I am going to turn all things around. 

Lord, You’re our only hope. Only You can bring healing to hearts, broken hearts, grieving hearts, and even sick hearts.

Child, soon you will hear testimonies of those who once looted and destroyed with hearts full of anger and hate. Soon you will hear them say, “But God. But God intervened and changed my heart. Now I want to serve Him and spread forth the message of His love for mankind.”

Today healing begins. 

Lord, I look forward to hearing these testimonies. We all need to hear a good report of some kind.

First, we had CV-19. Then we witnessed unmerciful death. And then we witnessed riots full of destruction with more unmerciful deaths. Lord, it all looks hopeless.

Stay Home

But My child, wait until you see what I now will do across this land. Watch and see what I do. 

Look throughout My Word. Every time things looked hopeless for My people, I stepped in and brought  forth My victory. Every time.

So from now on, every time things look hopeless, look to Me. Remember what I’ve told you many times. “Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me.”

Look to Me, for I am peace and joy. I am real love, love that can’t be explained. Never look to mankind for true love. They are incapable. But always look to Me, for I AM LOVE. 

When My love enters a heart completely, then a life can be changed, truly changed. 

So keep your eyes on Me and what I do. You are going to see and hear of many miracles of changed lives. Watch and see what I do.

Offer Your Body to God

 

Offer your body in submission

“Not only am I calling you to offer your body in submission, but also I’m calling you to serve others as well,” said my Lord. “In addition you should also seek My will about your food choices, when to eat, what to eat and how much to eat. Then your victory over food will come.”

Yes Lord, I do want to serve You. And I want to help others too.

_______________________

Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:2 NIV

“So do it today, not tomorrow. In fact, start now living in the victory I’ve already planned for you. Don’t wait until tomorrow.” 

Of course Lord, I want victory in my life. But what do You want from me?

“Specifically, . . . I want all of you,. . . your heart, your mind, and your body.” 

But Lord, I’m pretty messed up. Why would You want me?

“Child, I want all of you because you are Mine, even the messed up parts. Overall, you are to seek Me about all things. Seek My advice, My wisdom, and My guidance one day at a time, one moment at a time. So ask and ye shall receive.” 

All who listen to My instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. Matthew 7:24 TLB

“In fact Child, I have many plans for you. First and foremost, I’ve already planned  your freedom and total deliverance from this bondage of compulsive overeating. So as you offer your body in submission to My will, I set you free. Also read My Word. Thereby feeding your spirit and not your body.” 

Being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 NKJV

_________________________

“Yes Child, I’m using your weight struggles as a witness for My glory. I will be magnified in your body as you yield yourself in total submission to My will for you. This also includes your food choices.

Do you think failure and entrapment is what I have planned for you? No, what I have planned for you will give you a hope and a future. My plans are not to harm you, but to prosper you instead. And I plan to fill you with My Presence forevermore.”

 

 

Temptation, Lord Help Me

TemptationsTemptation, everywhere I look. Lord help me. Forgive my stupid sins. Help me to please You in all I do, don’t do, say, don’t say, eat, don’t eat, and even what I think, or don’t think. Fill me with a greater desire for You versus anything else, even my food. Let me feed on You Presence. Thanks for loving me even though I don’t deserve it.

Uh Lord, . . . were You ever tempted by food? Continue reading Temptation, Lord Help Me

There’s Always Hope

There’s always hope.

Lord, is that true? Is there hope I’ll get back to where I once was?

To begin with there’s always hope. Next to get back where you once were, let go of your abundant, unnecessary food.

Would You remove this love of food from my heart? Also, would You grant me an increase of love for You?

After losing 90 pounds, I told others how You helped me lose weight. Now I feel trapped by my “self.” And this love for food has me trapped in defeat. Since I don’t know what to do, I can’t fight it. After all, I’m weak.

Child, I’m your hope. 

Lord, You never stopped me from overeating.

To begin with Child, the desire for to stop overeating has to come from you. I won’t go against your free will. Therefore you’re free to choose. 

Lord, my free will caused me to gain weight. My free will chose to overeat, and to run to food. But I can’t stop it and You won’t stop it. So what am I to do? Now I’m trapped.

How do I defeat this “self?” How can I gain victory over this self that defeats me and holds me in bondage to excess food? Will I ever have freedom or victory again?

In fact, I’m your victory. Now give your “self” to Me for I am stronger. I can defeat your enemy of “self.” Through My power, you can have victory. 

I am the way, the truth, and the light. If you give your self to Me, I will set you free from this entrapment of self and defeat. 

Lord I start out each day fresh and strong. But by nightfall I’ve fallen in defeat never to make the finish line. How can I get my victory back? Is it possible to gain my victory back?

Yes child, for I am your victory. Come to Me. 

What do You want me to do? How can I stop eating at night? What’s the magic trick to stop me from reaching for food?

Child, there’s no magic. There’s only My power. And I’m all powerful. 

In fact Lord, You’ve never stopped me. So how will this be different?

Child, you’re good at surrender in the morning. Then at evening you give in to “self” and it’s desires for fleshly self-gratification.

Lord, I’m trapped in “self”. What can I do?

To begin with, replace your nighttime snacks with talking to Me. 

Lord, how will this work? Will it work?

Child, you won’t know unless you try it. In fact I’m your answer. I’ve always been your answer. For this reason come to Me and let’s talk together. 

Yes Lord, here I am. I give myself to You.

———-

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil. Hebrews 6:19 

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace  in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Romans 8:25

Working on getting my victory back. How about you?
