I do not think I have shared this in a post, if I have I am sorry.
Have you ever made a major change in your life, something you never could see yourself doing. I have, and to some of you it will probably not be a big deal but to me it was enormous.
See I was addicted to Diet Coke. I feel like I need to start by saying my name and admitting my addiction...lol. You know there are so many things in our life we can become addicted to. But Diet Coke was mine. I mean we are talking, me by myself, drank at least 5 or 6 - 2 litre bottles of Diet Coke a week. We would find it on sale and load the car down at times. That is so sad people, and what is really sad is I didn't even realize it.
I knew my health was deteriorating but did not realize what was causing it. Then articles started popping up about aspartame and how bad it was for you. And I decided I needed to do something if I wanted to see my grand kids grow up. So me and the Lord had a heart to heart talk and I gave it to Him. I knew without His help I would never make it. I lived and breathed Diet Coke, I had one by my bed at night and started the morning with one, along with one by my side during the day. If I did not have one of a morning I would have a headache within an hour of waking up, until I would drink a glass. I prayed that He would make them taste terrible to me and that I would never want another one as long as I lived.
" And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matthew 21:22
Not only was the desire taken away from me but the fondness of the taste is gone. I cannot stand the taste, we were in town and Stan had a fountain Coke and I took a taste of it and wanted to gag. I went back to my water, which is funny because I never drank water before, hated the taste of it. It is amazing what our God can do if we just ask and turn it over to Him.
My blood pressure medicine has been cut in half. I have so much more energy than I had before. I no longer am having issues with my right leg feeling numb. I have not had any more issues with losing the sight in my right eye, it would get blurry and black at times, not very often but enough it scared me. I do not get winded when I walk across the parking lot or up and down stairs anymore. I do not feel bloated anymore or swollen. I am not seeing a lot of change in what I weigh but clothes are fitting better and I am able to wear some things that I could not before. A few of my jeans I have to wear a belt with them now. I feel so much better than I did! Life is Good! And I give all the credit to God! Thank you Jesus!
