I will not be defined by a number on the scale any longer either. I will always be a recovering food addict and people pleaser, but I will be able to live victoriously even through the ups and downs. Because, you know what? God loves me no matter what. I am almost giddy at that thought, dear friends. More tomorrow!
I Corinthians 10:31: "So eat your meals heartily, not worrying about what others say about you—you're eating to God's glory, after all, not to please them. As a matter of fact, do everything that way, heartily and freely to God's glory." The Message
Yep, God cares even about our food; and, wanting to glorify God, and knowing my worth and value come from Him, today w...as even easier than yesterday. I have dieted and gained and dieted and gained all my life. What I NEVER did before is give it over to God and let Him have that part of me. What freedom I now have knowing that I can overcome this obstacle.
Why didn't I see it before? Because I had blinders on where my weight was concerned, always looking down at the number on the scale. Not any longer!
