In the Thick of It

Sometimes life is just hard to navigate through. I just started the workbook series of my Thin Within journey and already I have fallen. I ate all day yesterday out of 0-5. I ate all day period. I was stressing about a recent heated discussion I had gotten into with my husband. Without getting into detail about that heated discussion lets just say, it got very ugly! I ran to food for comfort, which surprised me. I thought I had gotten past all of that. But, to my surprise I had not. I ate, and ate, and ate some more! It was disgusting really. But, I learned a lot about myself. I have not arrived. I am not even close to arriving and God has a lot of work to do in me before I will ever arrive. I do not want to keep running to food when I get into the thick of it in my life. I want to run to God. Crawl if I have to. I want to sit at His feet and cry, scream and yell instead of run to food and stuff my sorry face. Isn't this what it is all about though? We run, we fall and then we get back up again. Hopefully in the process of it all we learn a new trick or two along the way. I know that sometimes when we stumble and fall we get hurt and scraped up a bit. We may even brake a few bones. But, I heard that when we brake our bones the bone actually gets stronger after it heals. So we only get stronger when life gets thick, we fall, get hurt, then get back up again. It is never to late to start over. So today I will wait for 0 to eat. I will start over. I will get back up today stronger, and I will start over. Thank God for His unconditional love and help. Thank you God for your newness every morning. You are my strength when I am weak.

"Even if he has a fall he will not be without help: for the hand of the Lord is supporting him." Psalm 37:24

Seems to be "going around". Thankfully it wasn't between my husband and I but instead me fighting with me. ~Smile ~

I wished we lived closer too!

Girlfriend, you are awesome. Jesus delights over you with singing. I am so proud of you for just being willing to SEE what is going on and to keep getting back up...this is a journey. Sometimes it is 4 steps forward and three back. Maybe even sometimes 3 forward and 4 back! But over all, we will make headway. Press on. REJECT the club of condemnation...and embrace grace. Observe and correct (as you have been!) and rest in His embrace. You are his are beautiful!
