I am afraid I will never get this right. I want to be a better person. I am trying to be nice and take care of myself, but things are blowing up all around me. Every time I get stressed I find food. How can I stop this? I am so far out of control; I fear I will never get this right.
Finding Comfort in Food
Dear Comfort food,
Things blowing up, all around you is part of life in this world. Don’t expect heaven here on earth. (Quote from my friend Pastor Randy Larson) We all have good days, and crazy days. Jesus loves us day-by-day, moment-by-moment regardless of our mess. In order to stop your feeding frenzy during times of stress, try trusting God in all things. Whatever the craziness, He can handle it and will in His perfect timing. Do you believe that? If you truly believe that in your heart of hearts then practice it. When you witness something blowing up, simply exhale, step back, pray and trust God. If you start thinking about comforting yourself with food, STOP, PRAY AND TRUST. Jesus loves you and will provide for you and the situation that is blowing up. The opposite of faith is fear. Find comfort in your faith not food. Try putting your favorite scripture verses on the fridge and make a deal with yourself that you will read and think about at least one verse, before you take your first bite.
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
You will get this right, keep on keeping on through the help of Jesus Christ. Remember, God loves you, regardless of your behavior, you are saved by grace!
Be fit and be blessed,
PS I have attached a few helpful scripture verses…The Bible is full of them!!!
