tough pregnancy, enduring morning sickness for nearly eight straight
months. During that time, all she could stomach was waffles and other
simple, high calorie, starch laden foods. Needless to say, this led to
her gaining far more weight than the average woman would during a
pregnancy. After our son was born, try as she might, she just couldn't
seem to lose the weight. As you can imagine, this was very tough, both
emotionally and spiritually for a woman who was the prettiest girl in
her high school.
Well, she made up her mind last summer that she was going to give her weight problem over to God and made a vow that through Him, she was going to get her weight back down to a healthy level. Since last September, she's dropped over 80 pounds.
80 Pounds! That's an entire Back Street Boy! (as I'm fond of telling her)
Well, a few weeks ago, our Pastor asked Angie and two other women at
our church into his office, where he interviewed them about their
weight loss. He then used that as proof positive that God can help us
do anything, even if it seems impossible, as long as we're willing to
step out in faith.
You can watch the message here:
If you don't want to watch the entire service (which I recommend you
do), you can simply fast forward to 17:50 into the message to watch
the portion focused on Angie and her coworkers. You'll be amazed when
you see the before/after image they show.
While many people might take credit for the hard work they did to lose
that amount of weight, since the first moment someone acknowledged how amazing Angie's weight loss was, she's remained emphatic that she didn't do it, God did.
So, if you're struggling with something that seems impossible, watch
my awesome wife and know that with God, all things are possible.
