I just want someone to tell me it’s okay…
to be a few extra pounds… to hold a little more weight around my waist than I once did.
I don’t want to have to hide it. But I have to…
Cause this whole world tells me it is not okay.
“But you don’t live for the world… do you?” You live for Me.”
Your life is Christ. He will preserve you. He tells you He loves whether you are under or over weight. You could be 90 pounds, or 200 and He would love you the same. Your weight doesn’t change your worth!
One day I am fine and then the next day I feel such shame over what I’ve let happen to myself. I can’t even look. I’m disgusted with myself.
This is the problem… I am looking for life in all the wrong places. Im trying to find life in something apart from Christ… in myself.
I’ll never find life there. I’m looking for fulfillment in a place that will constantly disappoint. A place that is always changing and is completely out of my control… I’m trying to find freedom in the place where I was once held captive.
I am not my own. I’ve been bought with a price and I’ve been released from captivity. He bore my sin and shame on that cross. I am a new creation.
Let’s look to Him today. Let’s allow Him to tell us our worth. Let’s find our identity in Him alone. In Him is life. Seek Him, find Him. Find out that in Christ you are free!
My focus today in this raging storm inside of me (to live for Christ or to live for myself): You
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
Who the Son sets free is free indeed. (John 8:36)
