Who the Son sets free, is FREE indeed…
To my fellow sisters in Christ… From the bottom of my heart I want each one of you to know that you are a beautiful daughter of the King. He is well pleased in you!
You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.
Song of Solomon 4:7 NIV
A little about me…
This is just a girl who adores writing from the heart, and loves to encourage others!
About 2 years back I had an eating disorder. (Anorexia) I remember trying to find blogs to read for support, and really had trouble finding blogs that were centred around CHRIST. My motivation for this blog is to post personal stories and blogs for you. To lead you to truth, to bring you closer to that freedom Christ has for you, and to teach you more about the abundant life He freely gives.
Who the Son sets FREE, is FREE INDEED
Did you know there is not one single command in scripture to be thin? Yet we all pursue that…
Trying to fit into the worlds mould… Worlds way of pursuing peace and satisfaction in life.
“I had spent my life pursuing a goal that was not necessarily Gods goal for me.
CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST (Romans 8:28) — GOD’S GOAL
Not many people post a before and after pic like this one… But that was me THEN, and this is me NOW. No longer dead, but FREE, alive, finding my identity in CHRIST!
Yes, to the worlds standards I may have once had the “perfect body”… But I firmly believe that was never the body Christ intended for me to have.
I don’t want to conform to the patterns of this world. I want to be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of my mind.
Yes I still have struggles with listening to the devils lies about my body and that I’d be happier if I was a stick again, and I do struggle with wanting to be super obsessive over food just to remain thin, but Christ has shown me to pursue something far GREATER and something that will last… my inner beauty, that which flows out of my heart.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but the woman who fears the Lord she is to be praised.
So here I start this blog as a reminder to myself and to anyone who maybe struggles that restricting, comparisons, caring so much about others opinions, counting every calorie, and always wanting to be less on that weigh scale, does NOT bring life. Neither does eating like a pig…
BUT health and moderation through the discipline of Christ does bring life! This girl now is much more joyful… something no one can take away. Much more thankful… I see my body as a gift and I want to use this gift He’s given me to bring GLORY TO HIM, and MUCH more ALIVE through Christ… who is the giver of ABUNDANT LIFE!
