For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. EPHESIANS 1:4
“Tying our happiness to food, skinny jeans, relationships, or anything else sets us up for failure. But tying our security, joy, and identity to God’s love is an anchor we can cling to no matter what our circumstances may be. ” Lysa TerKeurst from Made to Crave
Your body size is NOT tied to your happiness. You can still be upset, depressed or sad no matter your size. You can’t think “I’ll be happier when I’m smaller.” It just does not work that way. You have to not let the people around you or your circumstances define your mood.
Dear Lord, I declare today that I was made to be free, holy, new, loved, and confident in who You made me to be. Protect me from anything today that challenges this truth. Help me to redefine my identity. In Jesus’ name. Amen
I feel like this about eating a lot of times! I feel guilty for refusing to eat what other people serve at parties, sometimes I feel guilty for asking for my food to be prepared a certain way.
But then I remind myself that it’s not their bodies and I’m not on a DIET! It.s a lifestyle change and I want to maintain my lean body and that requires conscious decisions 99% of the time!
Now I can confidently say No to meals that are sabotaging my hard work and make better decisions because of my knowledge!
Never LET anyone make you FEEL bad about the lifestyle you are living, their negativity is just a cover up for other feelings!
Have a WONDERFUL DAY!
