Emotional Healing in Christ
If you have a fever, you contact a doctor to determine the cause.
If you’re addicted to drugs, you know you need counseling, healing, and help to get to the root of your problem.
If you overeat, you need to buckle down and exert more will power.
Gluttony is the accepted sin of the church. We tease each other at pot lucks, we excuse our overeating, and we treat our troubles as no interference in our Christian walk. A survey done at Baylor University shows that the growth of obesity in America is greater in evangelical churches than it is in the general population.
Compulsive overeating is a symptom with an underlying problem that needs healing like any other addiction. For years, my life was ruled by emotional outbursts, compulsive overeating, and low self worth. Like Lacey in Worth Her Weight, I came close to suicide. My marriage strained at the seams. My life loomed empty and joyless. I believed my husband and daughters would be better off without me. After God healed me emotionally, I lost ninety-five pounds, quit biting my nails, and my entire personality changed.
Though different, Lacey reflects some of my same struggles. I pray it will touch the compulsive over-eater out there and heal the wound that festers. My message is—with God, there is hope.
About Worth Her Weight
How can a woman who gives to everyone but herself accept God’s love and healing when she believes she’s fat, unworthy, and unfix-able?
LACEY CHANDLER helps her mother, her sister, her friend, and then she binges on food and wonders is there really a God?
BETTY CHANDLER hates being handicapped and useless, so she lashes out at the daughter that helps, and the God who doesn’t seem to care.
TOBY WHEELER loves being police chief in Wharton Rock, but when the devil invades the small town, can he let God have control?
