Hi ya’ll!

I’m just a girl fervently seeking God. I suffered loss, and although I knew God, I decided to self-gratify with food, in my unsuccessful attempt to heal a broken heart.

I lost my father on 11/22/2006 and on 12/05/2006 I ended a relationship that broke me in every sense of the word. We all go through moments of brokenness, and it is in those times that we should remain closer to God and cry out to Him from our knees. But, like many of us do, I allowed my flesh to take over, and although a pint of Haagen-Dazs a day made me forget temporarily; my waistline did not. It saddens me to say that within a year I went from 130 lbs. to 286 lbs.

Although, I have managed to lose some of that weight, I could be and should be more disciplined. But, the “Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda’s” are finished. “What if’s” kill the spirit.  Today, I am turning the page and I’m allowing God to transform and re-new my mind again!

“Do not be conformed to this world, but
continually be transformed by the renewing of
your minds so that you may be able to determine
what God’s will is-what is proper, pleasing,
and perfect.”-Romans 12:2

Now it’s time to take responsibility for my weakness and lack of faith and call on to God who can and will provide me with a strategy to overcome this obstacle.

If I am to call myself a disciple of Jesus Christ than I must live by the Spirit of Excellence, Disciple, Self-Control and Obedience. Our God is a God of order not chaos. And so, today I encourage you to join me in this fight of faith, remember that we are called to be conquerors and overcomers.

“No, in all these things we are more than
conquerors through him who loved us.”
–Romans 8:37

Lord, I humbly come before you and my request is that your Word speaks louder than ever, my desire is to be excellent as You are excellent. I ask this in the name of Jesus – Amen.
