Eating Disorders And The Power Of Christ – New Gospel Coalition Article

by Bobby Gilles

in Exhortations And Musings

Today our friends at The Gospel Coalition have published a new article by my wife Kristen Gilles, about her battle with an eating disorder, and Christ’s triumph on her behalf. We pray it helps those of you suffering from bulimia, anorexia, other disorders and body-image issues. We also pray it will help everyone understand these things more, and feel better equipped to comfort and minister to those in need.

An excerpt:

I thought I’d been “repenting” daily—really I was just going through ceremonial self-loathing exercises produced by my fearful heart. I also kept asking “Why?” Why was I bulimic? Why did I deserve this? Why wouldn’t (why couldn’t) God just make me stop? Why was I out of control, and fighting for control? Why wouldn’t God reveal the way out?
