Can I be honest with you? I am discouraged. I want this process to be over already. I am tired of it. My life has been pretty stressful this week and I haven't really handled things so well. My normal reaction to stress is to eat .... a lot. Since I have been trying not to use food as a comfort, I find myself just being plain mad. I have been quick tempered with my kids, rude to my husband, and a general joy to be around.
This is dumb and embarrassing, but here it is. I know that this is just part of the process of dying to myself but I honestly never thought it would be so hard. I'm in the middle of the mess right now and I am trying to press through. I so easily forget that this is a spiritual fight, not a physical one. I know that I am not alone - God is mighty to save.
Pray for me today, please & thank you.
