I have struggled with my weight and self-image for years. I tried diet pills and any other weight loss I could find. Every time I would lose weight I would go back to my bad habits and gain it all back and then some. Frustrated and ashamed that I could not keep my weight off, I started hiding from people not wanting to been seen.
Nobody likes the idea of feeling weak, being weak, or weakness in general. We want to be strong! We want to be self-sufficient! We want to be in control. When God tells us that His grace is sufficient, it usually means we are at a point where we must relinquish all control and completely trust Him; trust Him for our peace, trust Him for our answers, trust Him for the ability to endure, and for patience to bear up under every circumstance.
I had been looking at Grace and Strength Lifestyle for quite some time, but couldn't commit financially until I had [had] enough of this extra weight that I had gained in the last 7 years.
If any of you have young children or grandchildren, you may have seen the movie Frozen in which these 3 words (let it go) were forever etched into that part of your brain that plays animated movie soundtracks ON REPEAT. While we may not desire to ever hear this song again - EVER – there is something very liberating in the idea of letting go of the things that have been holding us back.
Embracing your season: The end of each year brings with it reflection on our lives, our time, our goals (whether we met them), and where all the days went! Were we able to do what we set out to do, and how can we make sure we do better next year? We are actually encouraged to do this in the Word of God.
