My Worst Enemy, Bulimia...My Best Friend, Jesus Christ

This is a wonderful little table I got from an online community for bulimics I used to moderate (before I got kicked out for being a biblical counselor, ironically enough). As you consider and "count the cost" of leaving bulimia behind, contemplate the riches of His grace and joy of His fellowship.

My Worst Enemy,


My Best Friend, Jesus Christ

1. Temporarily

numbs pain, but

never satisfies

1. He comforts and soothes me

with His love

Psalm 7:9: For he satisfieth the

longing soul and filleth the hungry

soul with goodness.

Isaiah 53:4: Surely he hath borne

our griefs, and carried our sorrows:

yet we did esteem him stricken,

smitten of God, and afflicted.

2. Makes promises

it can’t keep

2. Jesus is faithful and never changes

Mal. 3:6: For I am the Lord, I change


Psalm 37:5: Commit thy way unto the

Lord; trust in Him; and he shall bring it

to pass.

3. Gives me guilt

and shame for all

my efforts

3. The Lord justifies=declared

righteous=not guilty

2 Cor. 5:17 if any man be in

Christ he is a new creature: old

things are passed away; behold

all things are become new.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now

no condemnation to them which are

in Christ Jesus, who walk not after

the flesh, but after the spirit

4. Lies to keep

me chained

a. tells me I’m fat;


b. dirty, shameful,

no good

4. Jesus wants us to walk in freedom

and calls me His child; loves me

(Psalm 139)

John 8:32: And ye shall know the

truth and the truth shall make you


Luke 4:18: He hath sent me to

heal the broken-hearted, to preach

deliverance to the captives, and

recovering of sight to the blind,

to set at liberty them that are


5. Wants to claim

my life

5. Jesus wants to change my life

and use me for His glory

1 John 4:10: Herein is love, not

that we loved God, but that He loved

us and sent His son to be

the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:4b: Greater is He that is

in you, than he that is in the world.

  1. Thanks for sharing this Maria. With the choices written out so clearly, why do we even consider bulimia?
