I want to thank all of you for making me feel so welcome! I am beyond encouraged, and I couldn’t sleep last night because I was so excited about what I want talk about in the next weeks.
Today I want to give special encouragement to others, like me, who have a lot of weight to release: 100, 150, 200 lbs or more. We have such a long way to go that it is so easy to get discouraged, but don’t give in! Before every testimony, there comes the test. Our challenge is large, but our victory will be sweet.
Maybe you’ve already given up, but now you are thinking, “I don’t know…I wonder if I should try again?” Let me settle that for you: Yes. Yes you should. Your whole quality of life depends on it. “There are far greater things ahead than those we leave behind.” -C.S. Lewis
I call this channel The Butterfly Effect because small changes, as insubstantial as a butterfly flapping her wings, over time, can produce huge results. But I also love butterflies, and all that they represent. Jana Stanfield wrote a song called Butterfly, about a caterpillar :”Butterfly, please tell me again it’s all gonna be all right? I can feel a change is coming, I can feel it in my skin, I can feel myself outgrowing, this life that I’ve been living in…” That’s me. I’ve wasted so much time and lost so many opportunities being fat. But I am walking away from that life, and becoming something new.
“Butterflies remind us, there’s magic in every life. And we can become what we dream of, if fat, furry worms can fly!”
