Day Twenty Two: Weight Loss God’s Way


DAY TWENTY TWO:

WEIGHT LOSS GOD’S WAY

Day 22! I am so honored and excited that you have traveled this far! Please take a moment to reflect on all that God has shown you so far.

It’s so important we don’t become people looking for the next BIG thing for God to do because we fail to look back at all the small and consistent acts of mercy and grace he has done on our behalf. Day after day… He is good and He is faithful.

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1

We really are silly people, aren’t we? We get easily flustered by our discomforts and we have a hard time giving up our wants in exchange for the freedom of not wanting. The very thing we want (the most) is the thing we can’t have because we are not willing to give up what we want (in the moment). Like a dog chasing its tail, round and round we go. And Satan loves it that way.

We continue to pray for freedom and deliverance from the things that seem to be robbing our peace. Meanwhile God stands right next to us and asks:

Will you just give it to me?
Do you trust me?
Is my love enough for you?

DAY TWENTY ONE:

WEIGHT LOSS GOD’S WAY

In today’s training session I might be speaking more to the sisters than the brothers in the family of Christ, although the brothers are not exempt from these same snares and traps. And I am certain my brothers in faith who are reading this post know a woman who struggles desperately with this issue each and every day…her body image.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” Genesis 1:27

I’ve put off reading this post – when I saw the words “body image” I stopped reading. You see, I don’t have a body image. I don’t look in the mirror (except when I put make-up on in the mornings) and then that’s it. I hate looking at photos of myself. I hate seeing my body – the way it looks, moves and just the way it is.
