Recently, I started a vlog (video log) in a week-long series called “April 3rd to April 9th 2022 Weight Loss”. I’ve been posting my links regularly on social media (because where else would I share them) as part of my devotion to the weight loss that I’ve determined of myself. I have been one of those strong-willed young women who took God – and His mantra of family being the cornerstone of society, that the individual who is united with God is a microcosm of the universe, and that the mind and body must be united centered on God – very seriously. Basically, this video series is my way to relate my specific weight loss regimen that I am doing to the attention of other people. In other words, I am not part of any group or club. It’s just me figuring out how to get my body back to a place of good health and strength that I had in high school.
The problems that I have endured with weight-loss came largely when I found myself at a dead end in my life after everything that I invested into the community and activities and people that were around me. The only people that wanted me to succeed, be strong and healthy, and to be filled with joy at every branch of life were the people who needed and depended on me to live: my children, my husband. It was very hard for me to come to terms with the extreme disregard that at the very least characterizes the ashes of life as it was meant to be. Instead, now that it’s over in every facet of what it could have been, I am regenerated in God’s divine holy purpose to be a perfect woman with a body that only He could have designed for me.
As I mention in Today’s video, a diet is more than just eating food or fasting – it’s a bodily transformation and it is very spiritual and mentally demanding as well as physical. If we choose God we will be anointed with His oil, that is, his love, life and lineage as it is written in Psalm 23 of the Holy Bible:
The Shepherd’s Psalm (Psalm 23)
1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
True Father always emphasized with such longing and hope that God’s desire would be our desire. Everyone is unique and we resemble God in that aspect so there is nothing wrong with his hope that all of humanity could desire what God desires in His perfect goodness power and purpose. One could even say that each man and woman on earth really does have a destiny.
As it is God’s purpose that our bodies are the temple of our minds, the physical houses of our eternal spirits, even my body has been completely given to God’s purpose and will. Only now I see the great healing that he has prepared for the troubles of earthly life that we have endured together. My body is being restored to me now and my cup runs over.
