In Christ I am made New!
The devil tried to steal my identity as a young girl.
The aftermath of experiences I had at age 8 then at age 18, sent me into a downward spiral of food, alcohol addiction. I became morbidly obese, tipping the scale at 99.8kg and at one stage 101kg. I had no sense of self-worth and looked for love in the wrong places, because of that I became pregnant at a young age and raised my daughter as a single parent.
The emotions of guilt, shame, heartache, loneliness, abandonment, rejection drove me to alcohol, food and giving myself to those who did appreciate or value me.
I was playing Russian roulette with my life. I didn’t care, because I felt God didn’t care.
But GOD cares!
He chose me even when I thought nobody else did!
Fast forward 13 years later, 45 kg lighter, losing my mother and only sibling to Cancer, divorced with two kids. He uses every situation and experience to process us, mold us and to make us into the person He knows we can be.
God will never leave us and He will never forsake us!
Ezekiel 34:16 – “I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak….
I do what I do because living healthy is a glorification to God, and because we are fearfully and wonderfully made by GOD and He dwells in us, He deserves the BEST!
