HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!! We made it into 2017, and that is something that we all need to thank the Lord for because soooooooo many people did not make it into 2017. Thank you Lord for ordering our step through 2016 and into 2017, and I pray that you continue to order our steps in 2017. I know that it has been awhile since my last post and I now that you all are wondering what has happen with me on this journey. Well, if you read my last post you know that I was feeling like a total failure because I was gaining weight instead of losing weight. You would also know that I found out that I really did not believed that I deserved to be at a healthy weight and because of that belief I found a way to gain the weight back. So, after I poured out my soul to you guys (and myself) I needed a vacation. So, I went home to Mississippi and my realizations continued
First, I want to clear up somethings that I though about my self that I revealed to you guys, and the Lord showed me that it was NOT True:
- I am not a failure because I continue to learn and grow form my mistakes
- God wants/needs me to be at a healthy weight, so I may not deserve it but Jesus died so that I can be healthy so I have been given the authority to be at a healthy weight -I AM HEALED FROM OBESITY…….
- And lastly, I am proud of where I come from because that is part of the foundation of me. But I realized that it is okay to grow and want more because that is what life is about…..
Seeking God about this journey has really given me so much clarity and strength to walk out my journey no matter what people say or think about me. God put me here to be a blessing to mankind, and by being honest about my life journey, the ups and downs, the successes and failures, is showing someone else that the journey is not a straight line, and that it is okay to make mistakes-but learn from them and move forward.
So, instead of making a new year’s resolution this year, I decided to be committed to listening to God about my life’s journey because He will lead me in the right path. NO Resolutions needed because those types of commitments are commitments that you try to do with in your own strength. 2016 has really showed me that my own strength does not last, but God’s strength will last forever and He never fails.
In my last post I stated that I might join Weight Watchers if that is were God leads me, and that is true, but for now He has advised me to speak over myself daily and make a visual calendar so I can see what the Lord is doing and how it is transforming my life. God also told me to be realistic when making goals and focus on 1 day only. So, that is what I am doing. I have more faith in what God can do through me, if I let me Him, then in any world system that is put in front of me. Because like I have always said-Losing Weight Is A Mind Thing. And it is, so I have to fight those negative thoughts with words and those words have to line up with what God says about my life (which is the true).
I have started this year off with peace-God’s peace. And if you knew my whole story you would ask how can you have peace in the middle of your storm, and I would say because I know how it ends-I WIN. Being a Christian is so much more then a religion- it is a way of life because God needs us to transform. Again, I trust God with everything and I encourage everyone that is reading this post to trust God too concerning your storm, because with God you WIN…….
