Hey There! I’m Jade. Thanks for stopping by! I’m a Southern girl who is naturally independent, ambitious, and a bit of control freak. Although my natural tendency is to try to do it all on my own, I’ve recently embarked on a quest to allow God to control every aspect of my life. Now I’m just along for the ride, anticipating the marvelous things He’ll do!
Through years of struggling with an eating disorder, I am beginning to realize that seeking to manage anything on my own only causes me pain and failure. I have always loved God, yet been afraid to fully surrender to Him in the area of eating. In June 2015, I finally made the decision to surrender this area of my life to God. As a result of my decision, Surrendered Stomach was born as a place to document where God leads me on this journey of full surrender to Him. I have no idea where or how He will lead, but I do know that He loves me, wants the very best for me, and that His way is absolutely perfect.
Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This [is] the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21
I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16
[As for] God, His way [is] perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He [is] a shield to all who trust in Him. Psalm 18:30
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8
