I started my journey for weight loss last year.
I knew that 21 days is what it takes to form a habit. So, I thought.... ok... I need to diet for 21 days.
But during my journey's... (I've done several 21 days journey's), what I found is this.
My struggle to "diet" was a fight... a fight with ME. Knowing what I needed to do... but not doing it!
I found that I couldn't lose weight.... I believed in the past it was my metabolism... it was menopausal, hormones... etc.
What I did find during these Journey's:
In order to fix my body (lose weight, be fit) I need to fix my mind!
In order to fix my mind I needed to fix my Spirit.
what I really found is "ME".
I found myself stll eating wrong foods, too much foods.... eating snacks before bed while I said to myself... stopped don't do it.... yet I shoved it in my mouth....... it was NOT ABOUT MY WILL......
It was about my SPIRIT! I needed to detox my spiritual life. I needed to "clean house" (detox)
I thought I was walking the walk with the Lord.... but TRUTH is that when I was seeking Hot Chocolate Chip Homemade Cookies at 11 pm.... I was really seeking to satisfy somthing in me.... emptyness, hurts, disappointments.... looking to food NOT the LORD!
The truth is FOOD can't satisfy our souls. THIS IS THE TRUTH!!!!
Yes, we are conditioned as children that when your disappointd or hurt, sad... whatever.... go eat some "nice ice cream... it'll make you feel better". Or so the voice of our mother's told us.
Bottom line.... when there is a weight problem IT IS A SYMPTOM of an unblanced life. We are conditioned (some of us) to use food to treat our PAIN. Yes, some use food, some use alcohol, drugs, sex... YES!
Harsh but TRUE.
For some there may be abuse as a child or neglect as a child that has manifested as an eating problem
For some it is harboring resentments, unforgiveness (unforgiveness of others, or not forgiving ourself )
.... TOXIC things we've held on to...
Maybe it's the current situation, circumstances .... Your just not happy... It's not your plan... You don't deserve it....
SO you turn to FOOD to make yourself "feel better"......
I'm sure there will be some that read this and turn aways saying "that's just crazy"....
I won't justify my statements in today's blog... but it will be forthcoming.
What I am saying is biblical and now recently I have found it is also Scientifically Proven.
Think about it... pray about it..
What has really held you from being a healthy weight
What has really held you from getting great sleep and waking up refreshed, full of joy
What has really held you in sickness
What has really held YOU back from living life!
ONLY Christ knows YOU, Only Christ Knows YOU!!!!
Won't you stop and ask him - He can Heal and cleanse and restore YOU!
