What about self-control?

Posted: June 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

The last week I have been struggling greatly with something…and the question came to my mind: “Why did you have so much self-control when you had an eating disorder, and now you have NONE!!?”

After thinking long and hard about this, I got really depressed, and finally mentioned the thought to my husband. He looked at me, confused, and said something that really makes sense for the first time! He said that the fact that I didn’t eat had nothing to do with self-control, it simply was a fast for my idol, which was food! Is’t that the real goal of having a fast? Thinking about your God, or in my case god of food, the whole time?? This made a lot of sense to me…but why is it that my god does not want to leave me? Why do I always have the little voice in the back of my mind telling me that I’m not good enough??

2Ko 5:21 “For He has made Him who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. ”

I know I have to hold on to my true Saviour, Jesus Christ, who has saved me from myself, and believe that I am the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ, and that I can’t believe Satan who tells me anything other than that!
