A friend of mine read this at church yesterday during the Old and New Testament reading. I love it because she chose it for herself because she was struggling with her weight and as soon as she said it.....I related it to my weightloss journey. I have to realize that I am not going through this by myself. It's just not me making the eating decisions. It is God who is guiding me for the good stuff and it is the enemy who is guiding me to the bad stuff. Do I give into the bad stuff yes I do, but sometimes its not always the enemy, it could be God saying here you go enjoy it for now, but don't do it all the time. It is hard to depict which thing is God and which one is the enemy. But you have to have confident in what you are doing and move out the way so God can do his magical work on you to keep you healthy and whole. My pastor talked about changing your address doubt or declaration. As of Sunday morning I was having doubt in my weightloss because it felt like I wasn't accomplishing anything because it wasn't right there in my face. But see God knew what was in my mind and sent my friend Brodderick to tell me I am doing good and he is proud of me and I know you want to see results right now, but you aren't suppose to see the results now, but you will see the results later. That stayed in my heart and he said that before my pastor spoke her word. So today I am changing my address when it comes to my weightloss, because I could be sitting and doing nothing and getting bigger, but as long as I am doing something about my weight I am going to let God steer me in the direction that I need to go into because it is now out of my hands and it is in God's hand.
