Thank you. I still go to coffee to comfort me. I need to put prayer into my life more and take deep breaths and drink water and relax. Coffee does the opposite of what I need, but I have physical and emotional cravings still. I defeated them twice before and I can do it again...and then I will start losing again. Thank you for these prayers.

" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane

A Prayer For Weight Loss
Father God, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus that you will perform a miraculous healing in my life concerning my desire to lose weight. Thank you Lord that nothing is impossible with you and that you can help take away my desire to overeat and fill the voids within me that cause me to seek food as a substitute.
Lord, touch my mind right now, help me to see what causes me to overeat, give me a strong desire to want to take care of my body and see it as you do Lord. Help me to make the right food choices and touch my mind with creativity concerning food and what I eat. May I be restored to divine health again.
As I strive to do this Lord, please bless all within me - my cells, and my metabolism - that they will function properly so I can lose the weight. And let me take it one day at a time and not worry about anything else but the cares of the day that I woke up to.
Thank you Father for loving me enough to help me through this.
Amen.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

*Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

HERE ARE SOME HEALTH SCRIPTURES IF YOU NEED THEM!




That is an EXCELLENT idea!!!!! Here are some scriptures for you....

1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

God says there is some value in exercise but to balance it with godliness.

1 Corinthians 9:24–27 (NIV)
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last...

For me this is to say whatever things I do I should do my BEST!

2 Timothy 2:5 (NIV)
5 Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor’s crown unless he competes according to the rules.

Man, I need to remember this one... sometimes I don't want to see how much I'm really eating and measure but if I want success I have to do it!

2 Timothy 4:7 (NIV)
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

I have to have faith that God who began a good work in me will complete it! I have to have faith that I can do whatever I set my mind to. Remember as I think therefore I am!

Proverbs 23:2 (NIV)
2 and put a knife to your throat
if you are given to gluttony.

That one is HARSH!!!

2 Peter 1:5–7 (NIV)
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.

This SHOULD be my overall goal in my life!

2 Timothy 3:1–9 (NIV)


3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers

I pray this is NOT me!!!!

1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Why do I put so much stock in my outside? Taking care of my body isn't merely an exercise thing! I can't neglect my inside!

Proverbs 31:30 (NIV)
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

If I'm exercising and eating right just so my outside will change I am doing it for the WRONG reasons. True beauty is on the inside.

1 Peter 3:3–4 (NIV)
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4 Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

Another reminder of where my beauty is!

Thank you so much for posting this... I am going to take these scriptures and use them for myself! May God bless all of us in this awesome journey!!!
