Jesus offering his hand to walk/lead me forward to dependance on him, not my own strength.

The thought (lie) is that I will never be able to make these changes stick and I will ultimately fail at this, as I have so many times. This brings up feelings of failure and makes me feel anxious and overwhelmed.

The TRUTH is, ” I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phil. 4:13 This scripture reminds me that I am able to do anything because though I am weak, HE is strong! I feel empowered and at peace with this promise in my heart and on my lips.

I am planning my meals today and making my shopping list for tomorrow.

I feel ready for this detox of my mind as well as my body. I had a good day today as far as eating within the right boundaries. This is evidenced by the headache I have tonight – means I’m doing this right!

I have written down some toxic thoughts like “this is so hard”, and have written down actions and verses to go with them.

I hear God telling me that I am still not fully surrendered to Him in every area. When I have surrendered all I will be able reach my goal with His help, and reach the Promised Land.

God revealed some personal things. Amongst them are toxic thoughts and fears regarding losing control of eating healthy and binging. Also I fear losing control with regards to exercising.

I do not have words to explain how I am feeling, but they would be negative words.

God told me that I do not trust Him with all things in my life, especially in the area of bringing me peace when I get anxious. Most of the time when I get anxious I do not know what I am feeling anxious about. Fortunately I do not get anxious often.

Fear of failure, fear of ridicule if I fail, fear that I I won’t be able to do things with friends because I can’t control my eating, fear that I’ll waste resources and people who are important to me will point it out to me

When I picture God, He says “I got this”

I hear God asking me, Deborah…what does new creation mean?”
What does that mean in relationship with ME…..and what you have thought about yourself in the past and how I see you?

It has been hard for me to get online so I’m a little late in posting. I am so grateful to the Lord for how far He has brought me this year. I am about half way done with losing weight and the glory goes to God. My biggest fear is that I would deceive myself into thinking I have done enough and I would stop striving. I fear this would cause me to be ineffective in ministry. And I don’t want to go backwards either by regaining weight.

From one who, because of crazy circumstances last year and this – did exactly what you’re saying. I stopped- and gained some back. Learn from my mistakes- stay strong. stay accountable and keep the Lord in your journey. You have an accountability partner? you can do this!
phil. 4:13!

Give this fear to God Mary Ann. The Lord will never take you to a place that He knows you can’t handle–and He has already brought you this far. When you face obstacles, remember that fear does not come from the Lord. He wants you to succeed and will give you the courage to do so.
