This morning I read a short article in our local newspaper, the Charlotte Observer, that was reprinted from when it originally appeared in the July 6, 2012 issue of the Washington Post. Carla Broyles is on staff at the Post.
I believe that what she writes in her article, Learning to Lose Weight By the Good Book, is right on target.
Since the beginning of time, we humans have struggled in our relationship with food because of how Satan messes with our minds. It began when the Serpent tested Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Broyles ends her article saying, “It’s about developing wisdom, loving myself the way God does and knowing when enough is enough. I don’t know why it took me so long to go to God with this issue, but when I did, He was there with his arms stretched out, ready to take me in like a proud parent.”
Thank you, Ms. Broyles, for sharing your experience and for pointing your readers to the wisdom and truth of the Bible and writing about a loving God.
I hope you enjoy reading her article, and that you have a great day!
