Isaiah 41:10– Fear not (there is nothing to fear) for I am with you. Do not look around you in terror and be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties. Yes I will help you. Yes I will hold you up and retain you with my victorious right hand of righteousness and justice (AMP).
For years I was afraid of everything. I feared the dark, getting lost, and being alone. I even feared not having enough to eat. This last fear drove me to gluttony. I ate whole chocolate cakes and stashed food in weird places. I ate anything and everything, anywhere I could. Then I had a new fear. I was afraid that I would get fatter than I already was. I was afraid because I didn’t know God and what He said.
1 Samuel 16:7b- I do not judge as man judges. Man looks at the outward appearance, but I look at the heart. (GNB)
In desperation, I decided to get rid of any food that I swallowed—only later to discover that “it”is an uncontrollable disease called bulimia. For 16 years “it” controlled me.
There is an old saying. When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. When I reached the end, somebody was there to give me the knot. Somebody told me about Jesus.
Prayer: Thanks, God. When we had no where to turn, there you were. And God, thanks for people who carry the truth about Jesus, the knot for our rope. Amen.
