Absence and Searching

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
Have you wondered where I've been? Maybe, maybe not. I'll tell you anyways, I've been fighting the good fight.
What does that mean? well, it means I've been fighting this battle of losing weight and becoming healthy. I've been listening to Satan tell me, "nothing I do is going to work." I've been having pity parties for myself and I've been crying out to God and saying, "Why me?"
I am here to tell you today that I haven't been following my life style of eating, I don't want to say diet, because saying "diet" makes me think that I can soon go back to my old ways, and I can't.
To be honest, I wasn't looking to scripture to help me and that's where I started losing my battle. I've been avoiding this blog because I felt like a hypocrite. But, I never stopped praying and asking God for help. You see, the problem wasn't with God. It was with me. I quit using the scripture to help me.
I come before you now confessing my faults: I haven't been following my lifestyle of change, I haven't been exercising and most importantly, I haven't been studying the scriptures to keep me on the straight and narrow path. 
I'm here to tell you today: Confession is good for the soul!
I'm here to ask you to forgive me, don't give up on me, and to please continue doing this with me. God has a purpose for this blog...
I believe it is to help both you and me.


  1. I forgive you....God forgives you.....You are a great role model for me!

  2. I am on this journey too Rhonda, I have been praying for help and asking the Holy Spirit to lend me the sanity- that I lack regarding overeating and caffeine intake. I have learned more, get better mindset/fitness interest a tiny bit at a time- some improvements. My own focus is on stopping my own rebellion against my own body - God's temple - and against God himself. I have problems with obedience, and they seem minor really, but that is my current path that I hope will lead to the revelation to end my own prison of fat. I pray that the Lord let!)s me unlock the real spiritual and share it to give Glory to God- In Jesus' name. Amen! 12/29/13 (Praying for you too Rhonda

  4. HI, I just came across your blog as I was searching for scriptures to help lose weight. I too have tried many diets that always failed. I said that I must do something differently and that is to use God's word to help me lose wight and become and stay healthy. I have just realized that my taking care of my body is an act of worship! What an amazing revelation! Thank you for this blog and your transparency. Let's continue this journey together.
