Lesson 5 – I Have Arrived!

​One HUGE obstacle on my journey was thinking when I met a fairly large goal that I have arrived. This always led me to begin eating whatever I wanted because I hadn’t committed to a total lifestyle change. I only wanted to lose 100 pounds and then go back to the way thing had always been.

This always caused me to gain the weight back. I hadn’t changed my habits. I hadn’t changed, I just had delayed my gratification of what I wanted until I got the weight off. Of course, this is flawed thinking. But many of us go into losing weight with this same mindset.

I am a former sugar addict, but I am still a sugar addict just set free by God almighty. If I ever go back to what captured me, it will be like falling down a slippery slope. I will hit bottom again.

We must spend time with God in solitude and silence every day, just listening to His voice and knowing who He is and what He wants for us. It’s so integral to keep us following Him.

Action Steps:

  • Spend 10 minutes a day following how to sit with God in silence and solitude.
  • After you’re finished write about what happened or any direction He gave you.
  • Hand Him your emptiness, name it specifically if you can, to Him and ask Him what do you give me in exchange.
  • Write down what you gave Him and what He gave you.
  • Write a paragraph about what you will do with what He gave you. Share with the group.
