Matthew 6:25 “…Is not life more than food?”
Matthew 4:4 “But He answered and said, ‘It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’.”
And the best thing I’ve learned throughout this journey?
That listening to the little voice has given me all the ingredients I needed to make a happy life. I used to think that looking like a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model would make me happy. That finding Mr. Perfect would rid me of loneliness. That food was an evil monster that wouldn’t let me go and I would be stuck in dieter’s hell for the rest of my fat miserable life.
I have not yet lost all my excess weight; but for once I’m not stressing about the issue. Food related depression has gone bye-bye once I realized a few of these amazing biblical facts I’ve shared with you. In John 8:32 Jesus says “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” Being fat has taken a back seat to being happy. Besides, I’ve got to have something to offer God and He likes it!
I now have one lifelong goal: enjoy life! And accomplishing my goal only takes three steps:
Cuddle in close to God. He’ll cuddle me right back.
Offer Him what He asks, even when it seems goofy.
Bless others in my life whenever I receive a blessing.
Jesus, my own personal chill factor, said of Himself in John 10:10 “I have come (to mankind) that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
