Sugar Addiction Help For Christians | scripture prayer and affirmations to break free from craving food and sugar addiction
There are many consequences from being addicted to junk food. We can lose our job, our family, our health, and our mind. Life can become completely unmanageable. It’s important to realize we need to be healed from within from food and sugar addiction. I nearly lost my mind. I could not go a day without eating chocolate and I could never finish a meal without eating a cookie or something sweet. My sugar addiction lasted for years even though I thought I was taking care of myself by exercising and eating lots of healthy food.
Food addiction primarily is a slow progression, it becomes chronic, and can be potentially fatal. It's really sad that so many people go as far as getting gastric bypass surgery and it does not really help addiction, because they are NOT treating the underlying symptoms and they are not addressing the thought process of such an life threatening illness. The incidents of death after gastric bypass is very high and risk digestion complications.
Another source of treating food addiction are diet pills. Diet pills tend to give you a spike of energy and can make you crash and feel moody, tired and depressed. Many doctors who prescribe diet pills will also prescribe sleeping pills. Why? Because diet pills are like speed and can keep you from sleeping at night, then you need to take sleeping pills to get through the night. Many of the people that come to me with sugar addiction tell me how they cannot let go of the diet and energy pills. I know It's a sad place to be because i fell into the same trap years ago.
Ephedra gained popularity as a go to diet pill in the 1990s and it became a common ingredient for anyone who wanted a boost in energy and weight loss. I was one of them. I believed I could not have the energy I needed to get my feet moving and my appetite under control. I fell for the lies of the enemy and thank God I never got a heart attack. One popular product that hit the shelves was Hydroxycut used to contain ephedra, a powerful stimulant. Later, ephedra was banned by the FDA because it caused serious side effects. About 155 deaths are believed to have been caused by supplements that contained ephedra, including Hydroxycut. I thank God to this day that He provided a way out. Let's us think on in HOPE!
Talking to God in prayer is a sign of our desire and hunger to seek God. The above image is a great example of a prayer and affirmation to include during a time when you desire to humble yourself before God when seeking a healing for your soul from sugar addiction. As soon as you take your eyes off the things of this world (food) when you know you are struggling you can refocus your thoughts on the peace of God.
Practice prayer and reciting affirmations should not always be limited to a set time because we never know when our weakest moments during the day will be. Temptation to binge eat on sugar comes when we least expect it and God provided us a way out. In 1 Cor 10:13 we read No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. So we need to realize that we have a way to escape sugar addiction and trust in the power of God to help you in your Christian life to be set free.
When we choose to restrict sugar and other foods that make us eat more than we should know that it is not a method of punishing our bodies and it is not be used as a way to change your outward appearance. Prayer is wonderful when approached as a way to detox your mind from the lies of Satan who wants you to believe you cannot let go of sugar and food addiction for the rest of your life, he wants you to believe you cannot live without it. Hope In God and he will transform your life.
In Romans 15: 13 We read, May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
"Hope"to Stop Sugar Addiction -
So many of us are suffering from pain. There are so many types of circumstances that we have walked through in life that is causing us to suffer right now. Physical pain is one of them. Perhaps we have suffered a major accident and lost a limb or perhaps we have been having some kind of joint pain, head aches, or maybe we have a child or parent that is sick and we are suffering with them. Instead of turning to sugar and junk food when we are under stress, what can we do different to get us through these very difficult times? Prayer is always the answer.
For myself I have suffered the pains of abuse, rejection, physical pain, and grieving the loss of parents and a brother and some of my dearest and closest friends. These are pains that we suffer from things of the past. Often we need to purposely put aside a few hours a few times a week or a month to just let our Lord and God cleanse us and remove toxic thinking patterns that are the root cause of our poor choices and habits.
I need to pray for acceptance, courage and trust. In fact, this is EVERYDAY of my life. I NEED HOPE. I need to believe that i can get better and that hardships can turn around and teach me something about life. Otherwise, I get very discouraged and sad and I could very easily turn to food that I was addicted to. But, the beauty of God's grace is always there and we can interrupt the work of the devil who wants nothing more then to keep us locked in negativity.
I have no hope in myself or the things in my life. I am nothing without hope. God makes a way when I put my hope in Him. It is in the waiting and watching that I have hope. It is when I take my eyes off of myself and my troubles that I can trust in the Power of God to make a way that I never knew possible. My life is full of possibility because of God.
