Day Two: Year 6! What a "season."
If you're an "old" friend, we've been through an amazing season together as only Spark Friends can weather. I'm in awe of how this site and people have helped me heal. I'll just leave it at that.
After a few devastating hits to my soul, my faith is strong and my mind made up...I WILL get through this next season...but I need help. Six years ago, my SP siblings helped. Today, I will begin leaning again. (Team Caregivers...BEWARE!) wink wink
Six years ago, I surrendered to my Heavenly Father, my appetite and need for control. I started each day of my journey with HIS word before even one BITE of fleshly food. I used the resources SP provides and healed 50 pounds from my being.
As I journeyed, the Lord blessed me with friendships and teams that only SP folks will know what I mean when I say...CYBER BLESSINGS! Through these people and site, I've found opportunities to encourage, learn, and continue to heal.
Being paralyzed with emptiness, I've quietly sat quiet for two years. Sparse interaction, little to no blogging. My words were buried and the tears wouldn't fall. Empty.
Today, I will try again...not on yesterday's promise...but today's. Not for "weight loss" this time, but for continued healthy living and emotional well-being. Surrendering control and honoring the opportunity to "walk" with others...
Mathew 4:4 "Jesus answered, "The scriptures say: 'No one can live only on food. People need every word that God has spoken.'"
Please, Lord, help me fill up on YOU today.
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
And yet as I live in "Babylon," please help me find contentment and joy in YOU.
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ 11 Then the devil left him...
Thank you, that in YOUR name, I have power over the enemy.
