I never intended to publicly confess that I suffered from bulimia, yet there I was on a TV set, confessing my sin. Frankly, the hostess was gob-smacked; speechless, and unable to continue the interview. Silence ensued.
I continued my confession.
“It started with a gall bladder attack. Certain foods triggered an episode. Friends, it’s hard to live without fresh fruits and vegetables. But I devised a plan. I ate food and then threw it up. “
Fine and dandy, right? Wrong. I discovered that I couldn’t stop. Even after gall bladder surgery, I continued on. E. D. (eating disorder) trapped me. I continued this lifestyle for the next sixteen years.
Only finding Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour gave me the strength to give it up.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.(Philippians 4:13, NIV)
Where are you trapped? Look to your Saviour.
