This journey has been hard but joyful! I have gained new insight regarding my Father God. He is so faithful. He is teaching me that I can trust Him 100% of the time and I do not have to lean on my own understanding but to lean on His Word.
I will admit that the scales have really tried to pull on me. My weight last week was such a disappointment. I had worked so hard exercising and eating healthy. When I stepped on those scales I wanted to cry. But the Holy Spirit kept saying You can do all things thru Christ who gives you strength. I could feel the tug of the Holy Spirit on my life to not give up. Satan wanted me to give up, throw in the towel and just eat my heart out!
I made the decision to listen to His (God's) voice and to continue to bring honor to Him with my food choices and exercising. The verse in Isaiah 40:31 says "But those who wait upon the Lord shall change and renew their strength and power, they shall lift their wings and mount up as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired." (Amplified) Oh how true that verse is. I have actually jogged and walked, alot! Instead of getting tired I gained energy I did not know I had. I let God minister to me thru this week and just ignored the scales. After all they don't know me like my God knows me.
Well I am so happy to report that I have a loss this week! I weigh 236!! I will continue to honor God. Not because of what the scales have said, but because of what He has said!
I am learning that the spirit man has to be strong. I am the biggest giant in my life. I had to get delivered of myself. I can't know myself after the flesh. As my pastor said "The key to ressurection power was Jesus willinginess to do what the Father asked." When you are walking in the Word satan has no power to grasp you and keep you from succeding.
