Do not let the pain of the past steal the promises of tomorrow – Victoria Osteen
Whatever hurt we’ve gone through in the past are lessons for tomorrow, not revenge tactics. We dwell so much on the past that it blocks our view from the promises that tomorrow brings. Let go of the pain and move forward. God can heal of whatever pain there is. He did it for me, I used to be so bitter about my past mistakes and experiences that it deeply affected everything and everyone around me, but on hearing God’s Word daily I decided to handle everything to Him, and with the help of the Holy Spirit I gained freedom. You too can.
“Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man”.
In my local assembly, little cards with God’s daily promises, are shared to the congregation. I picked this verse on Sunday, and i decided to share it. It’s a form of advice or let me say what you’re to do to receive the promise of finding favor and good success… In whatever we do, let it be with love and faithfulness. God’s grace is sufficient.
It’s an emotional disorder characterised by obsessive desire to lose weight by refusing to eat.
According to Wikipedia “Anorexia nervosa, often referred to simply as Anorexia, is an eating disorder characterized by the fear of gaining weight, a strong desire to be thin, and food restrictions. Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight even though they are underweight. If asked they usually deny they have a problem with low weight. Often they weigh themselves frequently, eat only small amounts, and only eat certain foods. Some will exercise excessively, force themselves to vomit, or use laxatives, to produce weight loss. Complications may include: Osteoporosis, infertility and heart damage, among others. Women will often stop having menstrual periods.
The cause is not known. There appear to be some genetic components with identical twins more often affected than nonidentical twins.
Cultural factors also appear to play a role with societies that value thinness having higher rates of disease. Additionally, it occurs more commonly among those involved in activities that value thinness such as high level athletics, modelling, and dancing. Anorexia often begins following a major life change or stress inducing event. The diagnosis requires a significantly low weight. The severity of disease is based on body mass index(BMI) in adults with mild disease having a BMI of greater than 17, moderate a BMI of 16 to 17, severe a BMI of 15 to 16, and extreme a BMI less than 15. In children a BMI for age percentile of less than the 5th percentile is often used.”
