It's one thing thing when we don't know the solution, or how to use it, or that there even is one. But it is entirely another when you know the solution and how to use it and you don't. I am guilty of it. The solution for me is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS God. When I look away from that and start planning, and obsessing, and basically doing God's job for him nothing gets accomplished-and I mean nothing. Yet I still do it.
I love the saying that when the student is ready the teacher will come. It has rang so true in my life. As you all know I have been in a rut what many of you don't know is that I have been obsessing over my weight...really badly. But I did the right thing-when I did get a break from obsessing-I prayed. And the other day the answer came via face book...I read this "What ever you think about the most is your God" WOW...at that moment I was all like woo-woo-woo wait a flipping minute I have totally made my weight my God. No more! I get it! Just like when I first got sober and alcohol was my God, or when I first stopped smoking and cigarettes was I needed to turn my weight over. Turning something over means every time you think about it you pray-at least that's what it means to me.
