The Blind Side

Bob and I watched The Blind Side last night for the first time and what a GREAT movie! I knew I was going to like it before I even watched it, so I bought it first :o). I love Sandra Bullock!

As I was showering and blow drying my hair I was thinking (this is when I do my best thinking)about all the things that blind sides me. I get swooped up by satan all the time. I wish this wasn't true, but it is. Satan I believe is my blind side. I get blinded what is right and wrong (I am sure we all do). I see all this horrible stuff happen in the world and I get numb to it. Then all the good stuff that is going on in the meantime gets over looked and I don't think it gets the praise it deserves.

I get blind sided by ME. I get so caught up in myself... I forget what is really important. For example... I get caught up in my hunger and I over eat. I can deny this all day long, but the truth is I over eat and I am unhealthy. I know this is not pleasing to God. My body is His temple and I do not treat it like it is holy. The Lord made this one body for me to love and treat it like He loves and treats us. I also get caught up in my feelings... my feelings take over and then I become unloving. I end up not treating my friends and family how God truly wants me to love on them. I end up not giving God the glory He so deserves and wants.

I am noticing these things more and more. I am clearly seeing these things as I am not being distracted my things I thought I was missing. Now I seeing what I truly have been missing. I have been missing giving God glory and I have been missing out on all the goodness of God.

I am not writng this to have a pity party for myself. I am only writing this because it is something that has been on my mind and maybe you are struggling too. I don't think this thoughts pop in my head for any old reason... I believe there is more behind them... like maybe the Lord :o).

Hey Sterling,
I have been reading more of your blog, you have been on my heart lately and I have prayed for you some. The overeating is the same as someone who curses or someone who looks at porn or someone who steals or wants s to lie. It is all sin in the eyes of the Lord. We as people want to make some sins worse than others. I say that to say this, the overeating is a symptom of something deeper within you. We act out to medicate or to get comfort. Jesus is the comforter and anything that we put in front of him for comfort could be a form of idolatry. So what we have to do is take every thought captive to Christ. A lot easier said than done. It does work
2 Corinthians 10:5 (NKJV)
5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
Here is a suggestion. The next time you have the urge to eat more than you should. Stop right then and ask Holy Spirit Why do I need to do this? What is the trigger that makes me feel this way? Then Listen …. You might not get an answer but I bet you will. If you don’t then keep asking where do these feelings come from? Did something happen in my past that causes me to feel this way. You are His daughter and Fathers answer their daughters. Sometimes you have to crawl up in the fathers lap and listen and don’t talk.
If you have any questions you can email me at wwjd33kee@gmail.com
Be Blessed and walk it out!
