Losing weight while enfolded in God's love

I haven't been posting or writing very much for a long time because I'm being still about certain things, and waiting. In the meantime, I have been active in various ways, one being as part of a weight loss group. If anyone is interested in a closer walk with God as He helps you break a trouble area, addiction, stronghold, these are what I have been posting there and with the prayers of other Christians, I can't believe how much God is blessing me. I have never felt so free. Here is the opening post and I'll be adding to this as time goes on. I pray God give you breakthroughs in your endeavors. Feel free to comment anonymously or by name at the bottom of the page and we will pray for you too. It says, "No Comments" to start with,  just click on that.  God bless!

Everyone has their own ways of trying to lose weight and that's great, but the one common thread everyone can have is seeking God for help. So if you want to lose weight for Godly reasons, for health, for energy, to repent from possible gluttony, for husbands, to find a godly husband, (and most important...) to give glory to Him; then I believe God is wherever you are to carry you. If your goal is to drive men wild, to lord it over other women in social settings, to feel superior, well, believe me, God knows and I highly doubt you will find much here.

Dieting almost always fails because so many of us approach it with an attitude of "I'm not good enough" as we are. Many beat ourselves up while mentally dangling seductive visions of ourselves born from today's culture. I know I didn't have the right reasons many years ago and it was like beating my head on a wall. I have learned since then how much God LOVES us, just as we are, today. He knows why we reach for unhealthy foods, He watched us grow up, He saw everything that tripped us up even before we could remember. I don't understand myself but I know God does, and I am always learning to trust Him more. I honestly think the Holy Spirit kept me from achieving my goal because God knew the trouble I would get into if I had the body I hoped for (good grief how I would have!)

So first and foremost, be honest with yourself. Ask God to search your heart and examine why you want to lose weight. Once you have that on the right road with Him, get ready to love yourself through Christ's eyes, which melts away that kneejerk reaction to toxic thoughts that cripple us. Toxic thoughts about ourselves and those around us. Anger, guilt, rebellion, there are so many reasons besides good taste that cause us to eat too much. My prayer is that all of us discover God's truths about how He sees us, about the love that He has for us, about His protection and strength in carrying the burden as we discover Him through our trials and the trials of others on this page.

I had a page like this before and the insights of friends were such a blessing to me. Community prayer covering over ourselves and others on this page is a huge part of it. If you join this page, please come back often and pray over all of us together, openly or alone with Him. Christian, Catholic, charismatic or not, it's all about being born again. God knows His own and His arms are open wide! Praise God!

"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s." (1 Cor 6)
