The Continued Journey of GOD'S GIRL (formerly known as the Fat Girl)

The amount of responses I have gotten from this series has just been so overwhelming!!

And so fulfilling. . .

And so scary. . .

Now that the whole world's watching to see what God is going to do with me and through me, well. . .there's no stopping me now!!!!

At this point, I have lost 5 pounds.


Five down, about, uh, 135 to go~!!!!

I know, I know, baby steps. . .

The enemy would have me to think "Awww, come on, Lynn, it's just water.  After this, things will just go right back to where they started."

And normally, I would believe him.

Satan, YOU'RE A LIAR!!!!

GOD took those 5 pounds from me, and He ain't givin' em back!!!!

I am CLAIMING HIS VICTORY AS MY OWN!!!!  And praising Him for His mighty blessings!!

I now realize that it is no coincidence that I am pursuing two Bible studies at the same time right now.  That was God-ordained, too. 

I started Made to Crave a couple of weeks ago, and it has been such an eye opener to me, but when I started Believing God, that made it SO REAL to me!!

I am believing HIM. . .I am trusting HIM to heal me!!  And I KNOW He will!!!

You may have noticed from the title that I have changed my name.

And with good reason.

God doesn't see me as a FAT GIRL.

He sees me as:

**His forgiven child (Romans 3:24)
**His set-free child (Romans 8:1-2)
**His accepted child (1 Corinthians 1:2)
**His holy child (1 Corinthinans 1:30)
**His made-new child (2 Corinthians 5:17)
**His loved child (Ephesians 1:4)
**His close child (Ephesians 2:13)
**His confident child (Ephesians 3:12)
**His VICTORIOUS child (Romans 8:37)

Hmmm. . .think I'll adopt the term "God's Girl" for the rest of my journey!!

I'm thrilled that several of you are going to join me, and you have no idea how the postings, comments, followers, and texts have encouraged me.

Don't stop!!!  The enemy isn't happy with me right now. . .I still covet your prayers and your support!!

And by the way by doing this and sharing your journey, this will be a great testimony for others who have felt the craving of food, but we know that our real craving should be for our Heavenly Fathers word, that will sustain us in everything we do and all the things we need. Keep it up girl, I will be your cheerleader, well in mouth only I can hardly walk much less jump, (well you know what I mean). Trish
