You know, I have been weight-conscious in all the wrong ways for more than half my life! And here, in God's word, is an admonition to look after myself. Why? Look at the price paid for me, and for you!
How can I be so self-absorbed and so self-destructive and so blind?
|Emotional roller coaster|
Its not about the world's measurements (pardon the pun). Its not about being magazine thin! It not even about health and fitness as the world sees it!
Its about looking after my body because God says so! If your body is being looked after, its easier to look after your spirit.
I know when my day starts with jumping on the scale, my emotions are effected up or down and I let it affect my day.
Jump up and feed my spirit, read God's word FIRST, and eat healthily and well and then I am honouring in some small way, God's sacrifice for my life. Its just one of the things I can do to show God I appreciate His gift to me.
Now, having said that I know that I will continue to struggle in this area. But each time I choose to honour God by looking after my body, I will have the victory and God the glory. That is my goal.
|First feed your spirit!|
My encouragement to you is to make feeding your body about honouring God which in turn will feed your Spirit and remove the worldly burden to be someone the world dictates to you, you should be.
