Step one in any support group is acknowledgement. So I make this my step one. I have slowly realized that I have a problem. My problem is my addictive behaviors and extremes. I am overly obsessed with food. I acknowledge that this bondage in my life is slowly draining the great things God has in store for me and I am no longer allowing the enemy to use this weakness in my life to steal life from me.
I am overweight not extremely but enough that its an issue. I mean although i do want to loose weight badly my main thing is to be free from these overwhelming conflicting thoughts. I do want to be thin but most importantly I want to be healthy physically, mentally and spiritually. SO this is my dedication. God has been callig me to do a fast for over a year and I have set out to do it and then just give up. This time I know that I know that I know that it will be done and accomplished and it will be the next step to freedom and renewal.
This fast is going to be many things to me. First I want it to be the first step I take to reconnect spiritually with God. I feel as though as more and more i concentrate on weight and food the less I think of Him and what He wants for my life and how I can help others. Second I believe it will be the boost i need in confidence to go to others and share the good news. As well as this is going to break the addictive behaviors and help me crucify my flesh so that I am not led by emotions. I want to get to a peaceful state of mind that I will not have these exhausing debates between my mind and my flesh.
SO HERE IT GOES. To those of you that read this I hope I can give you a sense of inspiration that no matter how many times you fall the MOST important thing is that you get back up. God know that you cant do it alone. Will power has NO power with out Him. So I ask now for His blessing to use this for His glory and that my life may Glorify Him.
Starting tomorrow 11/11/06 I will embark on a 30 day water fast till December 10th.
Followed by a 12 Juice fast and a 7 or 8 day Raw food fast.
This will bring me to a new year to begin a fresh new start. God will use this so that I can inspire others and be able to touch lives and give them Hope.
I pray for all those out there that are searching for wholeness. I tell you that ONLY God brings that. To all fellow believers please lift me up in prayer that I stay the course and be strengthened. God bless Untill next time..
FYI these are my stats.
