Thank you sweet Julia for the Recovery Roundup today!
When I first began recovery, it seemed like a really long, almost impossible road. That time when I discovered my HAPPY weight? At times, I imagined that it would never come. Yet, the Lord truly has been merciful and gracious and restored those years that I did so much damage to my body.
Joel 2:25, ‘And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.’
There were times I became really discouraged in this battle. Yet, I am SO grateful, that the longer recovery became, the more clearly I saw the healing hand of God in my life.
Isaiah 41:10, ‘So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’
The amazing part about the body is that God has given it a marvelous way of healing, even if the damage seems irreparable. God is such a gracious God. He made my body, and in His graciousness, He has also healed it, bringing me back to a happy weight where my body is finally starting to function normally again.
When did I discover my happy weight? What is a happy weight?
