The Lord's Table

Today is Temptation Tuesday where I choose to share my struggles with food for those who care to listen. My addiction to food is something I am working to overcome. I've been working on this for most of my life but only just recently I have discovered something that has opened my eyes to what my journey has been lacking.

This is me at my current weight of 200 lbs.

The Lord's Table is a free online course that guides you through the principles of filling your life with the everlasting love of Jesus instead of turning to the lure of temporary happiness that addictive behavior gives us. There are other courses at the Setting Captive's Free site as well. Courses to address addictive behaviors such as s.e.x.ual purity, substance abuse, and self-injury. If you need help with any of these issues I would highly recommend dedicating yourself to the free 60 day course. This site also sets you up with a mentor who will email you with advice and can help you stay accountable to overcoming your addiction.

Never before have I been so excited to see what this journey will bring for my life. I am learning not to focus so much on the weight loss aspect but, rather, on learning how to fill my soul with real food and growing in my relationship with Jesus Christ.

Readers, I hope that if you find yourself needing this intervention in your life that you will commit yourself to the 60 day course and if you need prayer or additional support please feel free to email me at ashtinafayelou at gmail dot com. I would be happy to go through this journey together.
