I'm Thankful For...God

Today I am so thankful for God and all that He has done in my life.  I know that I would not be where I am today if not for Him.  My dad is a pastor and I grew up as a Christian, but during and after college is when it really became personal for me.

I have chosen to make God my number one priority and to live my life for him.  He has changed my life and blessed me in so many ways.  He has given me peace and a desire to help others.  

Throughout this weight loss journey I have learned so much about myself and my eating and realized that I have chosen to put food as a god in my life.  I had made that my priority and instead of going to God for comfort or strength I would go to food.  I am really starting to change my thinking and view my relationship with food in a different light and choose to go to God instead of going to food.

I am so thankful for God's love, grace, and protection in my life!


  1. I love this! I could definitely learn from this. I need to seek God for comfort in all situations, and not just "tough" ones. Food really holds no answers to lifes problems, unless that problem is hunger.
