Lent is very much upon us and quite honestly I knew I needed a change long before this!
I have always gone to something other than the Lord when things were going wrong. This year instead of anything else I would go to food for my comfort. PS it didn't comfort me at all!!! I gained 10 lbs. This comfort was killing me.
With the help of my daughter Emma's disciplined eating habits, my dad's own health journey, and some great friends I decided to allow the Lord to fill me (when I think I am hungry -every 15 mins). I have started intermittent fasting and working out at home. It has really helped me in my journey to let go of food to satisfy me.
He has truly shown Himself faithful to me. I still find myself not knowing what to do because I am not making, cooking or eating something all the time, but He is gracious with His reminders to trust in Him. He is enough for me and I pray He will be that for you in this season and beyond.
"But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God's presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praise to him who rides on the clouds. His name is the LORD- rejoice in his presence!" Psalm 68:3-4 NLT
