Episode 15 - I Was a Rebel

I Was a Rebel

When we don’t follow what God shows us to do, even if it is just in one area, we are a rebel. Of course I didn’t see myself that way. It would take some inner healing work to even find the lies I believed that were holding me back from trusting God completely.

I went so far as to ask God how I could lose weight. He gave me a plan, but it was a plan I didn’t like, so I rejected it. I continued to do everything else I knew to do, the easy things like going to church, reading my Bible, leading groups and even praying, but my relationship with God was dry.

It was dry because I knew I was in rebellion. The only cure for rebellion is surrender and yet, I felt like I had to fix the mess I had made of my life when I gained up to 430 pounds. Hear how I got through that and how you can find that same cure.

My free course #KickSugar is available now on my website. It contains 10 videos that lead you through a process to surrender this issue to God. Go here: https://TeresaShieldsParker.com/KickSugar/. Don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast and leave a review on Apple Podcasts (itunes).
