In Observance of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week — 7 Comments

  1. Thank you, Sheryl, for sharing your excellent, heart-touching testimonial blog message with us! Love this: “Still, when I followed my counselor’s advice to meditate on God’s Word, I noticed my love for God and His Word grew stronger than my “need” to lose weight.” I could easily relate, because in my teenage years, I also struggled with anorexia and even with loving myself. God’s Word has helped to transform my mind, control my thoughts, and even learn how to love myself, so that I could love others even more. I’m so thankful you got the needed help and that you have had victory almost it for 20 years! God’s goodness and care for us never ceases! Great post! May your vulnerability touch those who need to hear! “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13. Even the temptation to focus on ourselves, our weight, etc…, rather than focusing on Jesus.

  2. ❤ Sheryl, thank you for sharing your heart with your readers through your testimony. May those who suffer from any type of eating disorder and have the blessing of reading your message know that there is hope for them through counseling and, most importantly, through seeking God for His wisdom, guidance, and strength are two major choices that they have available. May they learn to see themselves as their loving Father sees them and begin the healing process. It is significant to celebrate that, through your honest transparency, you can truly reach out to other hearts for His divine purpose and glory. Amen! ❤ I am both honored and blessed to share your blog message on my Timeline. ❤

    • Thank you for your encouraging and very kind words, Joyce. I too pray all those struggling with eating disorders will “learn to see themselves as their loving Father sees them and begin the healing process.”
      And thank you for sharing my testimony on your Facebook page!
