As I sit here and think about the journey that I am about to embark on with the Lord I feel so many different emotions. I fell excited, nervous, confident, fear, but most of all I feel amazed.
I never thought that I would ever come to a point in my life where I would feel ready enough to make this bold decision and to make these changes. Food has always been my most relied on source of comfort. Its taken a hold on every aspect of my life and it’s taken a grip on me and I am more than ready to change that.
As I get ready to go on this spiritual journey I feel ready. I want to make this work, I want God to be my number one source of comfort, strength, and peace. I want to learn how to satisfy my cravings with Him instead of food. I want to have an intimate relationship with my God.
I am ready to make these changes.
I am ready to awaken my faith and renew myself.
I am ready for the hard battles that are about to come my way.
I am ready to be made new.
I know that this is going to be so hard and that its going to take a LOT of sacrifice but I am ready for whatever comes my way. Today I am committing to work on my relationship with the Lord. I am committing to spending more time in His word. I am committing to put Him before food. I am committing to make this work.
This is going to be a hard new journey in my life. I’m going to need to rely on God more than ever right now. Food is my biggest addiction and I need to rely on God for my strength. I need to rely on Him to get me through this season. I want our relationship to blossom. I want to experience His beautiful love more than ever. I want to feel His presence in my soul and feel His light shine upon me.
