I have been enjoying Pastor Prince’s messages and became very excited after reading his daily devotional entitled, ‘Lord, I Cannot, But You Can!’
I’d like to share that I have been very obese for all of my adult life and I’m now forty-nine years old. My weight at the start of this year was 333 pounds (151kg). I could barely make it up the stairs at home for bed. I was miserable about my size but constantly failed at dieting.
Finally, I gave up on trying to lose weight through my self-efforts and surrendered to God my area of weakness.
I knew I couldn’t bring down my weight but that He could, and believed that He would show me how. I also learned to declare my righteousness in Christ through Pastor Prince’s ministry, and experienced peace and rest by just depending on the Lord.
On January 22 this year, I started to eat healthily and lost sixty-three pounds by the end of May. I have a goal to lose a hundred pounds by the end of this year, and then beyond that to my ideal weight.
I’m also walking every day and enjoying all that God has for me! There’s not a doubt in my mind that I have been delivered from this weight problem and that we would reach our goal. I say “we” because I know that God and I are doing this together.
When people say they are proud of me because they know how hard it is to lose weight, I honestly think otherwise. It might have been difficult for me to lose weight before, but not anymore when I simply rest in the Lord.
Praise God for His goodness and for Pastor Prince’s ministry!
