I want to praise God for the truth that has come from the Weigh Down Workshop. It is the only program that has ever loved me enough to tell me the WHOLE truth! I was raised up in the church and was thought to be a "good Christian girl,"but what does that mean? Well, I can tell you what it doesn’t mean. I was spoiled. I grabbed and got what I wanted when I wanted, never knowing that it is so detestable to God. I was very greedy for food, that got me to 440 pounds. I also would cut myself with a razor blade from my wrist to my elbows. I would steal and lie. I had sexual sins that make me want to throw up just remembering. I had 20 credit cards and owed over 20 thousand dollars in credit card debt alone.
I never knew until Weigh Down's teachings from the Bible, just how spoiled I was. It was so deeply rooted in my heart, that I still pray that God will scrape my heart so bare that nothing but love and devotion to him remains. It truly disgusts me to see that spoiled nature try to come up; never do I want to miss his spirit again. I used to be convicted of something days after it happened, but never enough to change. Now I want to change and never do it again. Praise God!! Praise God, I don't have to destroy his temple like I used to do again. Praise God for removing 300 pounds from my morbidly obese body!! A miracle!
Praise God he continues to teach me to be led by his spirit with the money he has blessed our family with. I praise God for being taught how to be a wife and a mother, and that he has blessed me with a godly husband and a beautiful son and daughter and true friends that tell me the truth and help when I have a need. Thank you God for Weigh Down, for this freedom, for all your blessings and for this true relationship with you!
