II Thessalonians 3: 5 "And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ."
We sometimes fall into a trap of wishing that we could drop weight super fast, and we can become a victim of diet fraud or of an eating disorder. It starts off quite simply, innocently and we are unaware of the dangerous snare that the devil has laid for us.
There is no other way to lose weight except by taking in less food than the body burns and through moderate exercise. God desires that we eat no more than our daily bread, and that we toil with our bodies six days a week.
Losing weight with God as our companion along the journey means that we let Him direct our hearts in love for Him, which is trusting, respecting and honoring Him, and that we be patient in the process.
Many people ask me for prayer, but include this tag: "And don't pray for patience for me."
To be successful and overcomers we must follow the Manual's instructions. So dear ones, love God and be patient. It took awhile to get your body in this condition, and it will take awhile to restore it.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, now that I do want to be healed of my disorder or gluttony, I am impatient to have it all just go away quickly and painlessly. I know You are with me, and starting today I will examine if I am doing my part to be made well, and if I am patiently waiting upon You to complete the process. Amen
