Learning something...

I was on my way to Metro today (let's give a shout out to T-fab and Dean - great Praise & Worship today), I always go down Fort Street, turn right on Gibralter Road... and on my merry way... except today. I got right on the freeway and got off at Jim & Tonya's exit. DUH! So I decided to just take Huron River to Telegraph... it was GORGEOUS! If you are thinking about going up north for a fall color tour, save your gas money and just head down to Huron River Drive. I think I was meant to go that way today. Wish I had my camera with me though...

I will be honest, I went to Metro because I need to talk to a friend about a battle he has and today was about addictions... So I thought Jeremy might have some words I can use. What does it say in the bible about that whole splinter/plank thing?? Oh yeah... so I realized that plank sticking out of my own eye, the addiction of food. And how I use that addiction in my life as a crutch. I was glad I went.

Something else I struggle with? I really think that Metro should be my home church. I really do, but I struggle because what if the people at my now home church don't talk to me anymore. Changing churches means I have to give up my "youth leader" roll at my current church. I don't know if I am ready to do that.

I have a lot of praying to do. I am looking for an accountability partner for my food addiction in case Tonya really doesn't want to do it. I need help. I hate that I am this large, this fat. I am going to do what I can do. But I need help. Seriously.

2 Peter 2:19 They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

Most awesome scripture today...we are all slaves to what ever masters us. Seems to be a theme going on with people everywhere..this food addiction thing. We need to keep stomping it, me included ~ ALOT!

Must be a God thing. I just started a new blog to deal with my idolatry with food. God is moving to get his Army in shape.

I changed churches in January last year and it was tough. It also is the best thing I have done in years. We are so blessed in our new church. God needed us there.

I gave up being second in command on a praise team for a very large congregation. We left a lot of friends, but we also didn't feel in synch with that church anymore. Our new little church welcomed us warmly and God has used us in many different ways. Pray about this and if God is telling you to move, you should move. Leaving a position may mean nothing as He may have something totally different in mind for you somewhere else. Have Faith.
