Qs & As

Could you get a help me with some bible chapters or verses About how to get over a guy you really really need to get over? Lol. Okay memory verses about loneliness will do I think

I actually laughed out loud when I read this.
Girl, the age old struggle of getting over someone. I am so skilled in this art – maybe even TOO skilled haha. I haven’t been in too many relationships but I am the girl who is in a committed relationship with you in my mind and you don’t even know it, so I’ve had a lot of pseudo breakups and opportunities to have to get over people LOL.
But here’s the best advice I can give you:
Nine times out of ten, it’s not you, it’s God.

Qs & As

How is your lifestyle now different from the one you had before you truly gave yourself to God?

From what perspective? The changes I’ve made as an individual, or the changes that have happened in my life from an ‘external’ perspective?
Well, if you mean changes I’ve made as an individual, the answer is none really. See, we’ve been taught to believe that being a Christian requires ‘changes’ on our part- like we’ve got to scrub away some of the ‘filth’ before we can really boldly declare Christ our Savior. But the very flaw in this line of thinking is that the point of needing a savior is that there’s nothing we can actually DO on our own TO make ourselves clean. I’ve attempted it before though.

Qs & As

How did you fully trust God?

It’s a process – one I’m still going through lol
I think as human beings we all like to be in total control of everything. We’re taught the formulas for life and for success- be good and work hard and life will work out just right. So you’re good- or at least relatively so. You don’t do ‘bad things’ or kill anyone or anything of that sort. You work hard- go to the best schools and get good grades. You follow the formula to a T. And so you figure, it’s all going to work out. I got this in the bag.
But it doesn’t. And you don’t.
And for the life of you, you can’t understand why.

Qs & As

How did you let some people go from your life?

I could tell you it was an easy process, but I’d be lying. There’s something ridiculously hard about letting go of everything you thought you had- because even when it really is nothing substantial, it feels like you’re letting go of your world. And essentially you are.
But understand that it’s a process. It isn’t a one day thing. You’ll walk out of a relationship, the person will try to walk back in- and you’ll have to be able to preempt that and take steps back. I’ve found that when God is teaching you things like letting go, He doesn’t just leave you to it- teaching is a process. You will fail and have to retake some of those letting go tests.

Qs & As

How did you end up losing soo much weight?

First of all, God is good LOL
Secondly, I fell in love with exercise and clean eating. I work out at least an hour, at least 5 days a week (Except this week because I’m on a break because my workouts have been sluggish and my body needs to rest and recuperate.)
But I’d say it’s true when they say it’s 70% diet. I used to exercise like a mule and still not see results. Now I don’t go as hard, eat much better, and the weight came off.
