Healing in Stages

I’ve most often wanted instant healing without work or effort on my part. When I look at the four Gospels in the Bible, I see a wide variety of ways Jesus healed people. Some required participation (read that WORK).

Recently I’ve taken a fresh look at what I’m calling addiction to food. I numb with food. I’d love to be free of this and I do believe God is giving me steps to freedom. On the way, work is required. I’m fighting the urge to just give up…again. I have tried so may different diets and ways to lose weight. The bottom line (pun intended) is that I will be involved moment by moment in the healing God is offering me.

I learned from my Pastor (Process Over Product) this past weekend that I must learn to put off what I want now for what I want most. That applies to this area of my life like nothing I’ve learned before. God has taken me on a gentle journey for many years to get me to the point I can take this in and apply it. Embracing the process and believing it is more important to God than the final result is what I am daily working toward.

What about you?
