I am in Warrior Mode
We all have our own struggles – no one is without. I am a person who is confidently overcoming food addiction by following four bright lines; no sugar, no flour, 3 meals a day, measured portions. Lately, the hardest time for me is the evenings. When my kiddos go to bed and the house is quiet and calm, my head gets extremely loud. “You deserve to eat what you want, you’ve been doing so well, a little bit won’t hurt, just think how much you’ll enjoy it, you can regroup tomorrow, treat yourself, etc.” These thoughts and fiery darts come fast and furious and they will hit me if I drop my shield and become unguarded. Some call it their saboteur, I call it the enemy. The battle for my food freedom is waged – it is up to me to get into warrior mode and keep my shield up. The Bible tells us in Ephesians to put on the armor of God which includes taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one! God is always faithful and will give me the strength to take up my shield! I’d like to think that one day I will be able to rest and not have to be in warrior mode, but for now – I am a warrior! Shields up!!
