It was 5:30 a.m. and I woke up in the middle of the night so I went outside to pray. I talked to The Lord about all of my plans on going back to the daily walk today which naturally has 3 blessings: 1. a great night’s sleep, 2. weight-loss, and 3. lifted depression. I realize I need to cut sugar out of my diet because it has once again crept in and taken over ever so subtly. I dealt with an eating disorder for years and found recovery in Christ, but like everyone else I have to be cautious about what I put into my body. Sugar causes depression. Personally, once I get back on the sweet-train I gotta keep on going. But I went back to bed because it was too early for walking.
I woke up in bed 5 hours later to the sound of my husband calling my name for pizza at 11:30 a.m. So I stumbled out of bed and went in the kitchen. I am lactose intolerant and that cheese pizza was loaded with pain. I picked up 2 very small pieces and at my desk in our office I had 1 piece and a couple bites of the other. Poor decision making. This was a snare from Satan himself. Today is one of the days my husband and I get along best because there’s money. He wears me out and it’s by the grace of God that we are still together. I’m not perfect either, but he is truly a vessel in which the enemy tries to tear me down. Being unequally yoked is terrible and I would never recommend it to any believer. But then I saw this.
Yep. I could’ve died and gone to hell some years back, or been left behind because I attended this particular Church all my life that didn’t teach the whole Bible (I didn’t know there was a rapture). I have been forgiven much and I struggle with loving much. My patience is weak and I’m not one of the stronger sheep in the flock, but Jesus sustains me and has brought me this far in life. I know somehow in the end something amazing is going to come of our 7 year union. It has definitely stretched me out to the end of my limits. Sometimes marriage is like a box of chocolates. Ya never know what you’re gonna get… But looking back I know it saved me from the road I was on. Thank you Jesus.
I pray that my husband comes to know Jesus before it’s too late and I know God could use him in a great way for his purposes in the coming harvest. I’d prefer it be this one, but who knows. Miracles happen daily.
Romans 8:28 kjv “28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.“
No matter what you are going through, don’t give up. God has plans for your life. Even on your darker days, He does not change. Be blessed today in Jesus’ Mighty Name! †
