Praise God for the devotions on You Version
Hi, I look forward to receiving your emails and devotionals.
Last month I did whole30. I was really committed to heathy eating and working out. At the end, I got no results. I didn’t lose any weight. I felt good and blood pressure is perfect but the pounds were still there.. now two weeks later, I’ve gained even more weight. I struggling with feeling good in my own body and really pray that God helps and stay with me on this journey.
I pray that all are well who read this in Christ. This is a “THANK YOU” for the 21 day plan on YouVersion. It has been used mightily to get me back on track. Since January 2019, I shed 80 pounds as my mind has been renewed to optimal living in Christ. I lost focus after a significant surgery and began to gain back weight. I could discern the Holy Spirit telling me that my thinking was off (as it is with all misfires) and I was not overcoming the challenge to make poor choices, BUT I knew it was in me to be led of Holy Spirit thru this. He led me to this 21 day devotional which led to this website as I completed it today. I have begun the journey again and 1.6 pounds down from last week’s weigh in. I have resisted weight loss devotionals in the past because they seemed very superficial and non- beneficial. That is not true. I am encouraged to continue this optimal health journey forever. Thanks Cathy! I will continue to connect with this support system to get the additional unhealthy weight off and walk with The Holy Spirit for good stewardship of this body. Blessings!
Wow, thanks for sharing your testimony India. Continued blessings on your journey!
Please pray for me. I have been stuck for four months. Lose a pound or two then gain it back. I have a gym membership but haven’t been able to get to the gym. Work, stress and lots of responsibilities keep me from getting to the gym. People say get up earlier. What’s earlier than 4:30 am to pray and study the word? I’m in two bible studies that I really enjoy and study for one in the morning and one at night. The one helps dig really deep (inductive study) the other talks about issues affecting women. Plus I volunteer. work sometimes has my mind going constantly so when it’s time for exercise I’m too tired for the kind of workout that really burns calories.
Praying for you Mary but you should understand that change is impossible when you’re overwhelmed. Why have you taken on so much responsibilities? That is the deeper question.
When I read about where you are at right now it was as if I wrote this message just a couple months ago. The best advice I can give you is to heal what is making you comfort eat. For me I had to do the work and yes it was hard but so worth it. I prayed, journeled, and with the help of my therapist I was able to get real with myself and put words to the trauma I had spent so many years trying to forget. I also made myself top priority by not allowing my schedule to stop me from making time for self care. I pampered myself and gave myself time for me and nothing else. I had to learn to say no more and say this is my time for me and God. I had to ignore my cellphone! And as I started to heal I began to be mindful of the things I put in my mouth. I was a lover of sweets and I started substituting chocolate, cakes, and cookies with oatmeal mixed with trail mix. Substituting really worked for me cause I couldn’t control the cravings. Next I stopped eating anything heavy after 5. I got a membership at a gym and I have physical limitations so I couldn’t do alot of the equipment but I could do exercises in the pool. When I started all of this I was 254 with type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritis in both my feet, and a neck and arm injury. I am still in school and I have lost 20 pounds so far. You can do it. Heal, Self Care, Substituting, and being consistent will help you get there. Also block out the negativity from others and what you say to yourself and if you have to use sticky notes surround yourself with what our Lord God says about you. You are the 🍎 of His 👁️. Be encouraged 👑
All I ask is all of you, my brothers and sisters in Christ, please be in prayer for me. I am 5’6 and by now, probably weighing 260. I have hypertension and diabetes number fluctuates between pre-diabetes and once reached diabetes level.
I’m on two medications for high-blood pressure, and do not want to add diabetes medicine to these. However, I am also an emotional, compulsive eater.
I eat comfort sweets and junk food with any negative emotion I feel or want to block out of my mind. It’s hard for me. I’m also, an adult student with very little time that I’m not stressing over schoolwork or concerns over my future.
This keep me mentally fatigued where it make me physically tired. I say all of this not to be pessimistic, for pity, or to make excuses. But, to be totally transparent in what is going on, and the battle I’m facing.
I’ve tried losing weight with every diet and gimmick out there, and I’m tired of failing. So, please keep me in prayer, and advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
Praying for you.

Good morning! I tried and stop. My support friend give up. I need to lose weight because of my height 5’1. I weights 164. I was in a car accident back in 2015 and it change me totally. So now I need to get me back in shape. Our bodies are the temple of the HolyGhost. I want to represent who I am in Christ. I can do all things through Christ who strenghthens Me! We can do this together. Proverbs 27-17 AMP. As iron sharpen iron, so.one man sharpens and influences another through dicussion. Have a Bless Sunday!
This is my 2nd time trying, I pray this time I get yo see your videos,
What happened the first time Christine?
Your video was SO ME…. why do we do that? God has done such wonderful things in my life the last 3 years. Im putting this in his hands. Let the journey to better health begin. Thank you Cathy.
I would like to lose weight get stronger into my walk with God.
I’m excited to start my journey with the Lord
Holy Spirit you are welcome in this place. My body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost. I’m here to give Holy Spirit a better Temple to dwell in!
Hi ladies. I just found this through my Bible app. I gained all my weight after losing my gall bladder and then going through menopause at same time. Anyone else?
Thank you this program. I have tried many diets,teas and pills with no success. I ready to get to the root of my emotional eating and experience a permanent lifestyle transformation. The spirit of gluttony has to go.
I believe God lead me here I’ve been looking for a biblical prayerful weight loss program to help encourage me to keep going I’ve been struggling with my weight up and down since 2001 I believe it seemed as soon as I gave my life to Jesus back in 99 that’s when the weight piled on
The devil is a liar! Don’t allow him to cause you to believe that you’re gaining weight as some kind of result of giving your heart and life to God. He is a liar. One of the Fruits Of The Spirit is self control. God desires us to take on that Fruit and exercise it. That’s why we’re all here, I believe.
On this day I have made a commitment to myself and God to hand over my weight to Him. I have been wondering around in this wilderness for 36 years 4 years short of how long it took the children of Israel to reach the promise land. I’m excited to see where this journey leads me.
Welcome Aynot. It’s time to walk into your freedom!
I hope, with the grace of God and your kind help, I can lose weight!
Give a happy, winning day to God!
With love: PiTZi
