Change is Hard
Saturday, January 05, 2008
I have been doing so well this week with my new way of eating. However, it is still new and I know that it will be hard to do long-term. This time, when I try to make these changes, I want to do it for good and for God. I know God created me to be many things and fat wasn't one of them. I have been reflecting today on how many ways my life has been hindered by this excess fat. Could I have been serving God in even more ways if I didn't have this overwhelming desire to eat all the time? If I didn't have so much weight to carry around that I can't physically do what I feel I need to do? How much better mom could I be to my kids and wife to my husband if I could only let go of the sin of overeating? I cannot do this alone. I have tried and failed too many times to count. I need God to change me from the inside out. I need to give up the emotional eating and the laziness and fill myself instead with God's love, his grace, his word, his peace, his joy. I need to be able to release this food idol and put God in his proper place in my life: At the TOP! Please pray for me.
