Struggle

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. - Romans 7:15-20

*sigh* Do you know how hard it is to accept that constantly overeating just might be a sin? I only pass judgment on myself, no one else.

Can't seem to stop myself....

It's stress eating, and I understand. From one sinner to another, I support you in love as you daily strive to hold the hand of Jesus. It's a work in progress, not overnight success, so don't be hard no yourself -- He sure isn't being hard on you. *HUGS!*
