Saved a Wretch Like... ME
A Testimony of Freedom From Christian Bulimia

My name is Waseme Berry, I am a 21 years old. Since an early age, I was raised in the church and accepted Jesus Christ as my savior. I loved the Lord with all of my heart and I knew that I wanted to live and do His will. It wasn't until I entered high school, that I began to slip away from my Christian walk and began to enter into unhealthy relationships.

I broke my promise to the Lord and lost my virginity at the age of 18. Upon graduating from high school, I moved away from my entire family, back to my home town, because I wanted independence and freedom. I moved more that 1000 miles away and lived on my own.

Before the beginning of my freshman year in college, I withdrew from school( upon meeting a couple of people in music), and decided to pursue a career in music. I began to work with a producer on an R+B album for over a year. My mother was heartbroken, of course, but she never once judged me or disowned me. Instead, she prayed for me to come back to the Lord.

In the beginning, things were smooth sailing- (or so they seemed)but the ride was only beginning...

Five months into working on the album, The constant scrutiny placed upon me by my producer and manager, was simply too much. I'd have to stand on a scale (in front of them) and in return, I'd be criticized for not loosing more weight (It wasn't enough that I'd lost over 20 pounds since my meeting them).

The ever-present deadlines took a toll on me and I developed an eating disorder. Bulimia was a way out for me. It soon got out of my control and I secretly struggled with it for months. I came to a point where I knew that I needed help.

I confided in my Producer. I told him that I'd been binging and purging for months and I needed help. He replied, "Well, that is a very dangerous thing, but you have to do what you got to do to lose more pounds".

I was crushed.

The one person that I thought could get me help, encouraged me to keep doing it. The sickness took over me. I purged everyday 5-6 times a day.

I was consumed in my sin. I felt as though God had left me and I was too unworthy for His forgiveness. I ceased prayer and the reading of His word for months. I broke it off with my Producer and manager-- not giving any thought to the civil consequences of my untimely leaving and braking of the contract.

I enrolled and returned to school after much encouragement from family and close friends.

I still, secretly struggled with Bulimia and depression for my first year in college. I continued to make horrible decisions involving men and soon turned over to an idle life of partying, drinking, smoking, and living with my on and off again boyfriend. The more I looked at my present state, the more I hated myself.

I had to get to a breaking point.. And it is where I called out to the Lord to rescue me. I was disgusted with where my life had gone in three years. Nowhere.

But that is the awesome Love of Jesus that welcomed me back. God never left me, I turned away from His teachings. I have experienced the pain as well as the forgiveness of the Prodigal Son.

This is my true testimony of how the Love of God isn't designated for certain peoples. It is unconditionally rendered to all who seek it.

Now, that I am born- again, I have moved home to be closer with my family. I have left behind the wretched lifestyle. I removed myself from all of the unhealthy relationships. I have made a commitment to stay pure and wait on the Lord to send a suitable husband for me.

Everyday is an obstacle. I am young, and unwise. Therefore, I seek answers in His Truth. The Word of God never fails.

I am weak but He is strong
by: Anonymous

I have struggled with bulimia for nearly six years now. I got therapy in highschool, but to be frank the only times it ever went away was when I was in romantic relationships. I literally have all of the blessings anyone could ever ask for. I am starting to realize that it's not about loving myself... Its about the love that Jesus has for me. His love has to be enough. If I am worth dying for certainly I dont need to be killing myself or wasting my life in depression under the bondage of binging and purging, losing and gaining. Its not important. Bulimia is my answer to every rejection, to every dissapointment, to every thing I find inadequate about myself. I cant control it. I am not strong enough but Jesus is. I am going to praying scripture over my life. Ladies, we are all princesses as beautiful as Adassa in the eyes of the lord. His love is enough. Our strength is in Him.

re: "needing hope"
by: Shana

You are not alone. I feel exactly the same way. I accepted Jesus as my savior when I was eight. I read the bible, pray, attend church regularly, listen to christian radio. But I am hopeless. I have no peace no matter how hard I pray for it. I know Jesus is the answer to my struggle with Bulimia. I just want more than anything to feel him... for his love to fill the hunger that drives me to binge and purge.

I am 23 and have been suffering with bulimia for 3 years which had branched from serious health issues.. I need prayer.. I can't seem to get past it and I pray all the time.. reading scripture and desperately wanting freedom.. i look in the mirror and hate myself during, before, after i binge and purge

i struggle with every sort of bondage to this - perfectionism, stress, self-hatred/condemnation.. i'm so depressed and don't know what else to do except ask for prayer.

Hi! Thank you so much for your testimony. I can relate a bit (unfortunately) and you really encouraged me. Thanks so much. Love and blessings!

by: Anonymous

wow, what a testimony. your family were most admirable and undoubtedly you appreciated their...patience for you to come around.

God truly is awesome, and I don't know what I, or anyone for that matter would do without Him. I don't usually comment on sites but i'm just going to blab what i feel right now..hope you don't mind...

you know the teenage years are the hardest years as it's when people begin to find themselves, who they are and how they fit in. it's not always easy. but you pulled through and sound happy and that is a great reward in Christ Jesus.

Life is full of its surprises not all of them are easy firsthand and as it stands/goes so to speak, times may be testing as peoples morals shift towards filthy sodom-like behaviour and at times it may be easy to fall into that path..even when your instincts suggest the feeling is right with that beautiful person..that kiss that touch (even though nothing more serious may follow)... but is it really right? Our body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. too often that is forgotten..i have forgotten. we as his children need to be stronger and will be stronger and unswayed by the cunning temptations thrown upon our laps. i know not a single person from this site, but through our honest hearts belonging to God, we are all bros and siss in Him.

what i have noticed is that when things get you down we humans turn to tempo highs and pleasures forgetting what great gold treasure we already have in God..perhaps it's because we want to feel someone flesh to flesh and be held in their loving arms..is it not until after the mistake that we realise our foolishness or weakness and we hate ourselves. but guess what we will never hate ourselves again. we will lift our heads high trust in the Lord and put that right foot forward and walk towards happiness, towards success, towards respect and the ultimate goal...Jesus.

with all that said God bless you all and stay strong even when you feel empty and abandoned...when you feel like there's only one pair of footprints in the sand instead of the two you saw earlier...it's because God is now carrying you through those hard times and when the time is right, His time, again you will walk side by side, Father and child, hand in hand along that beach. =)

Looking back 2 years ago....
by: Waseme

I see that much has evolved in my life since I last wrote this testimony, due to God's grace and generosity. I have been living in the D.C./ Metropolitian area and have enjoyed the vastness of great friendships with wonderful people. I have been blessed to work awesome positions and volunteer for the current Administration in the Office of Presidential Correspondence. Most excitingly, I am in my last year of undergraduate studies at Trinity University and I am looking forward to preparing for the Master's Program in the area of Social Work and Public Policy. I will someday run a non-profit organization whose ultimate goal is to assist struggling women and children. I adore policy/economics and I will use my knowledge to impliment changes where they are needed the most in the system. I am so fortunate to be able to look back at the testimony and smile, because I have grown from my life and am able to share my journey with others.

thank you

Hey, thanks for your entry!! I've struggled with bulimia for 3 whole years!! I still can't let go. There was a point in time when God really touched me and I made myself stop, but it was all human effort, and when the stress came, I fell back into the cycle. I want out. I cant seem to let go of the weight issues and the constant comments from people that I'm chubbier. But I am praying, always, for a miracle. Feel so much more encouraged by your testimony!! Thank you sister!

by: :)

Thankyou so much for showing that there is hope and freedom from these kind of issues in the strength of Christ Jesus!
I have several friends battling with eating disorders currently and struggling to support them, however this shows that it is not through our own strength but through that of Jesus that we are released into freedom!
Please keep my friends in your prayers and thankyou so much for sharing your story!
May God bless you.

Bulimia is bondage, the Lord can set you free

Please do not feel worthless my sister, I've been there... I remember times that I would get up from the toilet after vomiting... and look in the mirror and cry. I couldn?t believe who I had become. The Lord loves us unconditionally and no matter what we do. Just pray to him and ask him for his mercy in your life and He will see you through.

I am 21 and also struggling with bulimia. I can't get past the guilt. I feel so guilty because I KNOW the truth of Christ's love and forgiveness--I grew up knowing Him, loving Him, studying His Word, and praying, and still I struggle with this awful sin. I feel so worthless.

I did not know of your struggle with God! You were always that beacon of light in high school when it came to God's goodness. I hope that you are doing all right now, and I would love for you to get in contact with me again. It was pure coincidence that I stumbled upon your entry. Ahmad was just asking about you the other day. Please get in touch with me! greene.dwan@yahoo.com

Thanks Pat, I am so glad that my testimony of the redemption power of Christ has blessed you. If I but only am able to reach one, the Angels in Heaven will rejoice. I only wish that I'd done it earlier (come back to Jesus, that is). There is so much joy in Christ Jesus. Be encouraged and stay blessed. - Seme
