God's Goals

Monday, April 29, 2019

Every time you set a goal, you are saying, “I believe God wants me to do this by ‘such and such’ a date,” and that is a statement of faith. If you state a big goal, God will work in a big way. If you state a medium-size goal, God will work in a medium way. If you state a small goal, God will work in a small way. So you can see how goals stretch your faith. They affirm that you trust God, but they are also statements of how much you trust God.

So last week I was not feeling well at all. Instead of laying low on the food, I totally gorged myself until I vomited that evening. emoticon

The very next day I saw this post on Instagram and was like, "Yes, I can do this. But, God has to be included." I've set goals before, but haven't succeeded because I didn't make them with the mindset that God was in charge of the goal.

I don't know why I have this struggle with food. I don't know why it's lasted for most of my 48 years. But, I am a binge eater and I need help so that I can become the healthy person God created me to be.

I hope this blog will in some way encourage someone else on the same path as I am!

I like this image because it shows that we need one another's help.

God bless your Monday, Sparkers!

    That was deep and I find I need to depend on God for everything in my life and so grateful He's always there for me.

    The times I've lost weight has been with God giving me the strength to do so, but just as I start feeling good about it I, not God, give up and do damage to all we did together. I still haven't figured out why i make this horrible choice?

    Regardless, with God's help I eventually get it together again and start over. Thanking Him for not giving up on me and one day I look forward to successfully losing this weight forever. God bless you on your journey!
