But more than all of that, Morgan’s beautiful honesty about her insecurities with her weight, and God’s beautiful transformation in her will truly touch, and inspire you!
Growing up I always struggled being overweight. Not only did being overweight hurt my health, it also made me feel broken and unwanted. I always want to feel wanted, but felt since I was overweight, it would never happen. This took a toll on friendships, and even relationships. When I got married, everything was great, but I still held onto these feelings of not being good enough. I had absolutely no confidence in myself. When I had my daughter, I thought for sure this would change. “I’m going to be wanted,” I thought. I was wrong. I sund into even more depression, which ultimately led to more weight gain. By now, I felt I was failing myself as not only a wife, but a mother too. Right before I got pregnant with my son, I started praying for God to help me. He led me to Julie’s Tuesday videos, but I knew I needed more support, and guidance. The Monday before joining Julie, and E4M, I found myself crying out to God, telling Him that I didn’t want to be this failure anymore, I wanted to fulfill my purpose that He had for me. That Wednesday, I ran into another member of E4M at church, Lisa McClane, and I knew it was a divine appt. Although times have been hard, God has carried me through. I’m nowhere close to where I want to be, but let me tell you, God has moved in so many ways other than just weight loss. Through the prayer warriors at E4M, and seeking God, I have found a new level of confidence in myself. I have found that I am wanted by the One who gave up everything for me. The scripture that has carried me through is Romans 8:18, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” I feel like this journey is no different. In everything (even weight loss) we have to let God step in and show us the way!
