Pregnant

[I] who [am] pregnant with [thoughts of food] and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. Psalms 7:14

Round with thoughts of food.  My body scarred with stretch marks of the truth.  My mind pregnant with thoughts of food.  I have conceived trouble.

I think then I act.

The trouble comes in all sorts of venues…… guilt-filled eating.  Harsh resentment towards God for allowing it to happen.  Feelings of failure, betrayal, and physical discomfort.  Had, ahem, have conceived them all.

It all breeds disillusionment.  Pride.  I can do this alone.  Secrecy.  No one will know.  Worthlessness.  I am such a big fat loser.

The cure comes from Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

I want to miscarry those thoughts of food and impregnate myself with noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy thoughts.
