E78 – Story Time: Bulimia, Gluttony, and Body Dysmorphia
If you struggle with any of these diseases, this episode is for you. I walk you through the addiction, shame, and downward spiral of my experience with eating disorders and how I've learned to live with it.
To borrow from Jesus' teaching to His disciples concerning how to enter the Kingdom of God: "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible." (Mark 10:27b NKJV)
I'm hopeless in this battle without my Lord and Savior. At the end of the episode I teach through my personal journey a guided Scriptural prayer & meditation exercise you can use the next time you face temptation around food addiction. You can watch the video of this exercise on our YouTube channel "SKULLBELLZTV": https://youtu.be/uefAYmmSHBg
