12 Mar I have been a compulsive over-eater
I have been a compulsive over-eater since I was a small child and was sexually abused by my brother. I would eat large quantities of food at a time – cakes, cookies, chips – whatever I could get my hands on until I was stuffed and was sick. I would agonise about my body and my weight; it was an endless cycle that years of therapy and prayer could not seem to break.
Dorothy prayed with me about my compulsive eating. Ever since the night she prayed, I have not overeaten nor had the desire to overeat whatsoever. I had been to therapists, 12 step groups, to ministers, to conferences- all trying to figure out how to break this painful cycle. I had even concluded that overeating was the ‘thorn in my flesh.’
The Lord has healed me! Thanks be to God.
