I struggled for two days before I sat down today to write this. I shared this article because it hit me right between the eyes: I am the one who felt powerless against food. I know it to be an issue. I know it to be an idol, or dare i say an addiction. BUt I didn’t know how to break those chains. All I had was a sense of urgency that something needs to change.
A couple of months ago, the LORD confronted me with the way I was using the body He gave me. How i didn’t honor Him or it by living the sedentary life I was in. And that because I was using my body unnaturally it made it (or me) more subject to disobey Him. It is interesting to me how when you are not under His guidance in one area, everything else falls apart. Since then I have started exercise classes, and went back to learn how to swim (it will take another post for that). But the food was still an issue.
Until this article when I realized a couple of things. First that I wasn’t the only one struggling. Second, there is help.
So here begins the quest to find help. I am thankful for the LORD for His goodness in loving me the way He does. He is awesome!
