Good day! Truly, God changes everything. I am Liza Ludovico. I stand here because I have witnessed God’s goodness in my daughter’s life.
My daughter, Alicia Mae Ludovico, has recovered from Anorexia nervosa. (An emotional disorder characterized by an obsessive desire to lose weight.) She is 17 years old, 5’6 tall and her weight is at staggering 26 kg. She was afraid of gaining weight because she thought that she was overweight. We did not also expect that she would be confined in the hospital due to other complications.
God also revealed His message for me; as a parent, I did not notice how overprotective I have been on her. She felt that I put too much pressure on her and that resulted to her becoming distant to me. She could not control her bad eating habits and it even came to a point that she would vomit everything she eats.
Having Anorexia nervosa is very rare in our country, and I cannot do anything but to pray and hold on to God’s promises. We kept on saying that she can do all things through Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:13). I asked God if He could change my daughter’s stubborn heart into a pure one. After several months, as she continued to develop a habit of eating right, she started to gain weight. The Lord reminded me this verse saying, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Praise the Lord! My daughter is now in a good shape; her weight is normal for her age and height, and it is only because of the Lord!
I thank God for He has blessed our lives. Because of His promises, we were able to realize the importance of trusting and believing. My message to all who are here with their own burdens, whether you are physically ill, mentally ill, spiritually dry, or whatever you are going through right now; hold on! God’s grace is at work in you. Believe me, It will be one of the greatest transformation in your life! Continue to seek and pray to Him. He is all powerful. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords and He will perform miracles in your life no matter how hard you think it is!
All praises belong only to our Lord Jesus Christ!
