Losing Weight

1 Thessalonians 5:18 King James

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

At sixty six years of age I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. So, for most of all the days of my life I have not honoured God in how I have cared for my body - The Temple of the Holy Spirit which God has given me.

1 Corinthians 6:19
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

Food has been a security that I have used throughout my life to give me comfort and though I have often been convicted of my sin in overeating and little physical exercise, "hushing" Holy Spirit or ignoring His sweet, gentle voice has been my method of operation.

Now I long to be obedient to my Heavenly Father, understanding more and more His heart for my well being - I need help, prayer and accountability. I have tried "to be good" many times over the years with little success. Now, it is crucial if I am to live out the number of years I have been given in health.

So, I do give thanks for this unhealthy situation I have created for myself - but at the same time I declare that I am going to walk into health.

Bless you for being here for me. Bless this wonderful ministry. I love "The Hem of His Garment" and all that you do to send forth the WORD. For therein is salvation, life and health!
Praise God.

Losing Weight
by: Pat Thacker

Hello Bernadette
I am also fighting that battle and have been for many years,I don't really know why I eat so much other than I love food.But I really hate being fat with every thing in me,and I know without any doubt that God has a plan for us. Because he loves us and has promised to be a present help "Hallelujah"! I'm starting slow in the lessons offered here learning to relax and be thankful and focus on my Heavenly Father and all he has done,and not being down about where I am because I'm not staying here. I hope you do well Bernadette and lose it and keep it all off!!!
Love ya
