Can I just be real for a bit? I’ve always struggled with my weight because I love food. I eat a lot. Lately, I’ve been at the gym 5 days a week and have still gained weight because I’m eating more than I burn. In a moment of desperation I asked a friend to pray for me and asked, ‘why isn’t God helping me?’
This is his reply: I am praying, but the more I think about it, the less I think this is about losing weight. You have to know that God is all about helping His kids, so if it ever seems like He isn’t helping, it’s because we missed something along the way. We CAN be thankful in every situation because we are commanded to and God doesn’t give out impossible commands. We often CHOOSE not to be thankful because we are running after something that God is not gonna give us BECAUSE He loves us too much and we don’t know any better than to chase empty wells and seek the wrong things. I really don’t know what He is trying to show you, and I could be way off course, but I recommend asking Him if you missed something.
My response: I’m so thankful for where I am even though it isn’t where I want to be. Not because I think He limiting me, but because I know He’s got more for me. So much good favor happens in my life. I don’t know if this is the answer, but I felt lead to jot down my thoughts.
His response: You. Are. Amazing!!!!
In those moments when you can’t understand what’s happening in your life, it’s ok to reach out and ask ‘Why.’ Just make sure that you’re asking a Kingdom minded friend who wants Gods best for your life.
