When I chose the SparkName FREELADY, it was a feeble step of faith. I understood that Jesus Christ has acted in history on my behalf to gain liberation for me. Because of his sacrifice I am officially acquitted before the throne of God. Now I have the responsibility to make choices daily which reflect that invisible reality. I aspire to demonstrate eternal truth in how I think and act.
I have been well aware that food was one area where I had not claimed the FREEDOM which Jesus Christ won. For example, I would read the following New Testament verses from 1 Corinthians 6 and ponder how to make them real in my experience . . .
"12All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.
13Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.
14Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. " www.biblegateway.com/
In my heart I knew I was usually behaving like a person mastered by food. By God's mercy, the Beck Diet Solution has given me tools to help me start to break free from that mastery. I am a baby-stepping beginner with Beck, but already I am feeling a new sense of freedom in regard to food thinking and food choices.
I have a long road ahead, and a lot of growing and changing to do. I am very thankful to God for all of you SparkFriends who have been so compassionate and encouraging. Your support means a great deal to me.
