God Doesn’t Care if I’m Fat
God doesn’t care if I am fat. He wants me to enjoy my life. He wants me to live, love and be happy. Food makes me happy so I’m just doing what He wants me to do. There are things in this excuse that are true and things that are false. This is true of every excuse and it’s why we make excuses to begin with. They are pretty little lies filled with stuff that makes us think we are doing the right things when we aren’t.
While it is true that God really doesn’t look on our outward appearance, He does care about our health. When I weighed over 430 pounds God still loved me but He was very concerned about me. He knew I was unhealthy and going downhill fast.
Many I know, in my family and among friends, have died of heart issues. A heart issue was the thing that caused the cardiac surgeon to stamp an expiration date on my body and that hurt really badly. He gave me five years to live if I didn’t lose weight and keep it off.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that was 22 years ago. By changing what I ate and still eat, I extended my life by 17 years and counting.
When God sees us, He sees our potential. He also sees the real probability for us to ruin our potential. I was doing a really good job of that. When we follow God He promises to help us with whatever is giving us a run for our money. For me that was the fact that my weight was causing me to be unhealthy.
I share how God turned that around for me and how He can do the same for you.
