God's Role in Eating Disorder Recovery: Grace

Have you considered allowing God to have a greater role in your eating disorder recovery, but you find that something is holding you back? Perhaps you feel guilty over your eating disorder behaviors or maybe you feel unworthy of God's help. If you do feel like this, please remember that you can't earn His help anyway, but that you can be a recipient of His grace.

God's work in our lives is not dependent on us. In other words, we don't earn, and we can't earn, what He gives to us. As we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and become believers, it is a result of His grace, not because of anything we can do ourselves. We see this clearly spelled out in Ephesians 2:8-9, For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. From this time forward, we would do well to remember this same favor remains with us. We don't earn God's help, His blessings or His strength. Instead, we realize that He blesses us because He loves us.
