Over the last 6 months I've read psalms and prayed almost every day my life has changed so much. Sometimes it's easy to beleive u can pray and it's like clapping your hands and issues will become resolved that's not the case most often ur mind is guided into making decision to better yourself, yourself. I'm from the uk with no help from Nhs health service I'm saving myself and have never felt so determined

John 10:10

 

King James Version (KJV)

 

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

 

My band helps me to have life and have it more abundantly. How can that not be God's will for my life?

 

My joy, confidence, health and beauty had been stolen, killed and destroyed. With the help of God and my band that is all being restored.

I chose a limited group of other believers before the surgery because I wasn't asking their for their opinions, but for their support so I chose people that I could count on. After the surgery, I have told people as the need came. My confidence in the people I told before hand was validated by their unswerving support, and I have been pleasantly surprised by those I have told afterwards as well. Additionally I found out that two others in Church had also been banded.

 

Scripture (Romans 14:20-22) from the lesson this morning is extremely appropriate for the subject:

 

So then let us lpursue what makes for peace and for mmutual upbuilding.

20 nDo not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. oEverything is indeed clean, but pit is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats. 21 qIt is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.3 22 The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God. rBlessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.

I see a few posts here from 2012 and 2013. Was wondering how everyone is making out on the weight loss journey. I will be banded in about one week. Do you feel the band was the right choice, would you recommend it
