So, what am I going to do now? I will turn to my gracious Heavenly Father because I cannot do it alone. These are the verse that I am going to be repeating over and over this week:
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past. Isaiah 43:18
I cannot change this past week. I must put it in the past where it belongs or I will not be able to go forward.
This week will be a better week. I am not going to rely on my own strength but pray daily that God gives me the strength that I need. This isn't just about weight loss. This is, and has been, about self-control and my lack thereof. This is changing what I crave in order to find comfort. My craving and comfort right now is food. I need to change that craving and comfort to where it should be; God!
Lord, I pray that I crave You as my Great Comforter.
