When you let go and let God… you will find acceptance by the best looking, most talented, richest, most powerful Being in the Universe, the Great I Am. Now that is how you build solid self-esteem! You can master this choice of truly repenting and giving your heart over to the Father. You must master it, because you were made to go down this narrow path and through the narrow door, which gets easier with every pound lost, because now you see that these are actually pounds of disobedience!
Peace and joy are the results of godly sorrow and true repentance, because the acceptance of God floods the soul. Even your countenance will change. Notice how easy it is to make this connection we are talking about. Make it a point to observe how depressed you feel when you mess up and how great you feel when you obey God and eat right and lose weight.
You can master this!
