Faithful Friday

Sitting here just thinking.... Thinking about how amazingly faithful God is to me. How no matter what my circumstance or predicament, God is there faithfully standing by my side. He catches me when I fall, comforts me when I am wounded, encourages me to go on when I feel like I can't move and He remains faithful to me when I lose all of my faith in this life.

I have had many faithless moments. Many uncertain minutes. Too many to count days where I have doubted the saving grace of my Savior. Why do I have moments of weakness? Why do I have doubts and faithlessness? I have been saved almost all of my life and I still wonder... wonder if I will make it? Will I make it to see Him face to face? Will my life count for something when I breathe my last breath? Will when I take that final breath move forward to the sound of His voice speaking these words to me; "Well done my faithful servant enter into my Kingdom today."

My hope and prayer and my entire existence really comes down to this... Am I faithful? Am I able to withstand the doubts and fears that arise? Am I able to move forward even in the fiercest moments of combat? Do I remain faithful even in my weakest moments in this life? These are the questions I ask myself today. For I have seen my share of battles. I have carried with me many battle scars in life.... but through it all I have felt the imprint of God in my lifetime. I am His. I am faithfully, fearlessly HIS. I will hold on firmly, with a tight grip to this.

"We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith. The one who made the promise is faithful." Hebrews 10:23

Hello there! I'm new to your blog and actually have started reading in the very beginning of the blog (July 2010) just to see how your weight loss journey had started and what was working for you. I've gotten so sucked in that I read long past the beginning of the blog. You see, I could have written most of this word for word. My whole life (until about age 30) I was thin too... in the size 0-2 range. Then over time through career disappointments and a failed first marriage I went from a size 0 to a size 18! I did have three children but like you it wasn't the kiddos that did it (I was at my highest weight before the births of the second and third). I have managed to lose 20-30 lbs but I still have a way to go. Anyhow what I *really* wanted to say was that this post:

really hit home for me. You see, my first husband had that addiction too. And, like you, I ran to food. Well, no that's not being honest. I didn't just run... I swan dived face first and didn't come up for air for years! I'm glad to hear that the person close to you was open to help on the issue. I will continue to read the old posts and look forward to the new ones too. Thank you... this blog is a blessing!
