FREESTYLE FRIDAY "BEFORE AND AFTER"

Friday, January 24, 2014




Happy Freestyle Friday My SparkFriends! emoticon emoticon

I'm praying that this Freestyle Friday post will motivate MANY of you to keep moving forward or to get moving. I always start with a blank paper or a title. I started with a title and let God lead me the rest of the way. I was so sick when I started this journey in 2007. Before all this I thought I was MEANT to be overweight. What a lie of that enemy! I couldn't see how else I would live. I was a Child of God but didn't realize that I could lose the weight. What a mistake that was. BUT GOD! He knows just what to do and led me to SparkPeople and HISTORY is being made! emoticon I want every one of you to BE encouraged as you read today's poem. WE can do anything WITH God! He's the KEY! He Who the SON sets FREE is Free INDEED!






“BEFORE AND AFTER”
I break out in laughter…
When I think about my before and after;
Is this all a dream?
Or is it not what it seems?
Then I awake and see…
It’s a brand new me;
From the inside out…
I dance and shout;
God gave me hope…
Nope-
I didn’t think this would ever be…
Now I’m totally free;
I walk by mirrors and smile...
I’m like a little child-
Dressed in new clothes…
Or those-
With a new bike…
Shiny and bright-
Riding around…
With their feet off the ground;
I remember all the pain…
The weight gain-
For most of my life…
I was in hatred and strife-
With myself…
Who else?
Food was my comfort…
I made no effort-
To change my ways…
Many days-
I didn’t care what I weighed…
Yet I was hurt and dismayed…
By what others would say;
The jokes and puns…
Made me run-
And hide behind doors…
Sit and eat more-
Then I finally snapped…
I was slapped-
In the face by the truth…
I was being uncouth;
I was smarter than that…
Why was I fat?
Can’t blame my mother…
Or any other-
I ate…
What was on my plate;
I dined…
Double time-
Two burgers and fries…
Two pieces of pie;
Candy galore…
I ate even more;
But God led me…
To see-
This was not my lot in life…
He shined a light-
And I’ve never been the same;
I’m amazingly changed;
Motivated to excel;
I cannot fail;
Walking by faith…
With every step I take;
Before I was sick and tired;
Now I’m full of fire…
To help others go higher-
And see…
Their liberty;
Truth always sets free!
