In 2007, I was a “Christian”, but not living any kind of abundance. I had tried literally every diet and lost hope. At 245 pounds, I was in emotional and physical pain. I had to literally crawl around the house from heel spurs in my feet. I had undiagnosed diabetes. I thought gastric bypass surgery was my only solution. But then God stepped in, by bringing me to a place of surrender. I never knew that God wanted to set me free so that I could live abundantly!
Food had become a stronghold in my life, and I couldn’t break free on my own. This is why I failed every time I tried in my own power and strength; only God can free us from our strongholds! It is not our job to make ourselves new; He makes us new. Otherwise we are just following diet rules, and wearing ourselves out by striving. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Please let me put your mind at ease. What I am proclaiming is not another diet; it is learning to live in the freedom Christ died to give you! He wants you to be free from the crazy diet cycle.
It is the Lord’s desire for us to live in absolute freedom. This is our birthright and true inheritance as daughters and sons of the King. However, so often, we find ourselves allowing the weight of day-to-day struggles and stress to keep us from fully enjoying life as God intends us to have, the abundant life He promises in John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
My beloved, I am here today to ask you to claim your freedom. Whatever has been your struggle, God wants you to have the victory. If you surrender any issue to Him, He will NOT fail. He is always faithful and you can trust Him. God wants you to lead you on this journey, step by step to your promised land.
Since God started me on this journey almost 7 years ago, I have lost 107 pounds and kept if off. I do not take the credit for this myself, but give all the glory to Jesus Christ alone. This is great news for you! For what He did for me, He wants to do for you. He does not do miracles just for one, but so that we can share His stories and help others who are trapped in bondage, like I was for 30 years of my life!
I am so excited to be sharing God’s miracle of how He set me free!
Here are some of the highlights of what will be included in this webinar:
- My background/testimony (story)
- Diet myths/lies of the enemy
- 3 factors to identify a stronghold
- Beginning the journey of surrender and deliverance
- Transformation from the inside out – body, mind, and spirit
- Key Bible verses for freedom
- Joy in the journey/attitude
Whether you have been struggling with a food issue, or perhaps another struggle, I pray you will join me. This is NOT a diet or a program; it is learning to live in the FREEDOM that Christ wants you to have. If you are ready to begin an awesome journey, it begins with surrender. This time can really be different. This time it won’t be you doing it in your power. This time it will be God doing it. He never fails. You have nothing to lose (except weight, pain, possible medical issues), and everything to gain… FREEDOM!
He is the breaker of chains. “For if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed.” (John 8:36)
In Christ love,
