[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Has anyone ever told you, “I’m here for you, no matter what.” It’s a powerful, statement. And one, that requires great investment. How wonderful to know that there is someone who will never leave, no matter the circumstances. But for many that is not the reality. In fact, for many of us this sounds more like a fairytale, than reality. A fairytale that can only be played out in the movies, and one that certainly did not come true for us. We HAVE been left, we HAVE been abandoned, we HAVE been let down, and the pain is unbearable. And how do we cope with the pain? Some, self-medicate with prescription drugs, alcohol, and illicit drugs. But many who are reading this today self-medicate with food. Maybe, we have been left by the spouse that promised never to leave; so we eat. Or, we may have bee abandoned by the job that was supposed to always be there; so we eat. We may have been let down by the family member who continues to return to a lifestyle of drugs or alcohol, leaving us to wonder, “Will they survive another overdose?” So we eat. Or we may have simply been let down by LIFE; it wasn’t supposed to turn out this way; SO WE EAT.
Do you struggle to find the will to fight the stronghold food seems to have over your life and emotions everyday? Do you long for victory today, friend? Do you beg God to give you the willpower to be successful in weight loss once and for all? Be encouraged. Willpower is not what you need. Stop fighting the battles you are up against in weight loss, by simply opting for another meal plan. From this moment on, begin to fight this battle the ONLY way it can be won; God’s way. Today, I pray God grant you the wisdom you need to fight and win in weight loss and healthy living, by implementing the following battle strategies. If you will begin with just these two simple strategies, I believe God will show up on your battle field to give you complete and total victory in your weight loss journey! All because you learned to fight His Way
- Immerse yourself in His Word. WE can never truly know God’s plans or promises for our success in weight loss with a closed Bible. So many of us fail to realize that God has so much to say about weight loss, and healthy living in His Word. I encourage you to begin to read the Word daily, and ask God to speak to you about your weight loss. When yo simply start here, God will begin to provide you the wisdom, and clarity you need to make decisions, and follow a path that will finally free you from the strongholds of overeating; forever. We are reminded of the healing power of the Word of God in Psalms 107:20, “He sent out His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.” Delve deep into the Word of God today, and allow the power you find there to heal and deliver you from the struggles you face in weight loss.
- Pray constantly. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 reminds us that we are to “Pray without ceasing.” If we remain in constant worry, and fear regarding our weight, and carry the burdens of our guilt and shame around like heavy baggage, we can never be free. We must pray about our weight loss. In addition, if we choose not to take our burden of weight loss to the Lord, we are not heeding His instructions which say, “Cast all your cares on the Lord for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 God wants you to cast the burdens you carry regarding your weight on Him. It’s only when you give it all to Him, that you will experience the freedom of knowing He will take care of it. This beautiful freedom alone can finally eliminate the stress that so often leads to overeating, and bingeing.
As you begin to read and pray, God will begin to speak. He will use situations, people, circumstances to speak life into your world, and you, my friend will begin to experience success in weight loss, once and for all.
If you made it to the end of this post, that is confirmation for you sweet friend. God is speaking to you today. He is ready for you to know, He’s is here, and He wants you to find success on your weight loss journey!
