Romans 6:23 (NLT) For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
The truth is that in the same way I have been ignoring this blog is the same way I ignored my commitment to posses Christ's victory for me about my eating. Now the truth is that I haven't lost my victory but for a moment I did let it go. I abandoned my freedom of victory and embraced my freedom of being able to eat what and how much of what I wanted. And now I face the truth today of what REAL FREEDOM really looks like to me.
Galatians 5:1 So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in the slavery to the law.
The truth is that I really HATE overeating because it is doesn't feel good physically, mentally or emotionally. And for me I know that sugar and flour are addictive to my body and so when I eat them then my body wants (NO DEMANDS) more . The truth is that this desire is not me..but it is addiction, compulsion and habitual all speaking for me. Well the realest part of me (my spirit) speak for me to say NO to sin. The truth is regardless to how I feel or what my body thinks it wants or need I can say NO to overeating or any other sin. It may be hard at first but it will get easier the more I say NO to the sin and YES to the LORD. I have to learn that something may be hard but it is not impossible. The truth is that I really really really want this- the healthier, more attractive body. The everyday manifestation of godly controlled eating. So why do I keep slipping and falling? I think one reason is that I am NOT being alert to the temptations of the enemy. I keep thinking one little slip wont matter until it has turned into 3 weeks of overeating.
Be Blessed, Manie
