I am so glad to read a recent article about the truth, that weight loss doesn't equal happiness. And in the study, even those who lost weight were more depressed than those who didn't lose weight. The truth is that weight loss does not mean happiness (article at http://psychcentral.com/news/2014/08/08/weight-loss-does-not-mean-happiness/73340.html). Oh my goodness I am so glad to understand this. So Heavenly Father, do I have an equal chance at being happy now then when I lose ** lbs?
Yes, Julie. You are a child of Heavenly Parents. You have a ** inch waist but that does not mean anything about your ability to give and receive love. Witchcraft delights in thin women for their craft because it symbolizes death. A woman who is overweight symbolizes life, really. Remember Satan and his followers, they are usually very good looking. But they are not happy, are they. I do want my children to eat healthy and take care of their bodies and exercise self control, but that comes with loving yourself where you are at, not feeling horrible about yourself. So yes, you could say that the skinnier women obsess about becoming, the less happy they become, because ultimately a woman of God wants to be a symbol of life. And what is Satan going to tempt that woman of God with? He is going to tell her she is fat. She should respond “yes I am. I have hormones and I have fat because my hormones made that fat right there because I am a mother and I am fat because I am spending my time taking care of my babies and family instead of obsessing about being a particular weight."
I still don't feel like a good mother though.
But YOU ARE JULIE! You know me well enough to know my voice by now. And when you listen to Satan it makes me so mad. How can you keep listening to him, Julie, when you know Me so well. Stop it! I don’t ever ever ever ever ever want you to feel bad. EVER . I don’t care who says you should feel bad about yourself. That doctor who said you were overweight and had high cholesterol, do you think I am happy with that person? You are my daughter and I don’t care how many pounds you weigh! I am not telling you to lose weight. I am not. I only want you to be happy. And that means being happy where you are. Stop black mailing me and saying, “look God, I’ll be happy when you make me sickly and skinny like those movie stars look” Just knock it off Julie. Be happy now. Quit looking in the mirror and criticizing your fat. Take joy in finding opportunities to exercise self control. Be happy for who you are. Be happy for all your hormonal fat on your tummy because I gave it to you for an emblem of your beauty. Don’t listen to Satan. Paleo diets make me sick. I made meat and grain for you guys and you stick your noses up. Meanwhile people in Nigeria are giving their lives for a piece of lamb for their children. I have given you so much and you don’t care. I don’t hear gratitude and thanks, I see noses stuck up in the air.
You know there is a higher law of eating, but I have not given you the law nor the ability to live the law. If I had, you and your family love me enough that you would be living it. But I have not given that higher law yet for my own purposes. So live the lower law, just as Nephi in the book of Mormon lived the law of Moses in gratitude and thanks before the higher law was given. You can’t live the higher law if I haven’t given it to you. I do give certain of my children diets but that is only to help them in their relationship with Me as I walk with them to heaven. But you have young children Julie and I make amends for you. When the higher law comes I give you a special promise and blessing that the transition for you will be extra easy and this is because of your desire to prepare to live that higher law now.
Now, no more worries. No more letting the infectious devil into you to harass you. Next time he tries to tell you you are horrible, I want you to punch him. I mean a big one. Punch him and punch him hard. No longer will he be allowed to knock you out . You knock him out. You know how.
Your doting Heavenly Father.
In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
