You tell yourself all the negatives.
You never see what good you do.
I look off. Uncomfortable. Do I do good?
You hear a critic and you latch to those negative words.
I look down. Uncomfortable in my own skin.
Truth in those words, I hear.
Surround yourself with the positive.
I agree to.
Boundaries I need. Affirmations I long for.
Embrace. Give. Love. Serve.
The small echo in my heart. Cracks in my harden heart gorge from truths. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed and get a new heart and a new spirit. Ezekiel 18:31 Rid myself from the negatives. Rid myself of the hurtful words. Rid myself of the impurities found in binge eating. Rid myself. Embrace the new heart and spirit.
2 Corinthians 12:9-11 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness…. For when I am weak, then I am strong.'”
His grace. His love. This everlasting love is sufficient for me. I don’t need empty calories, guilt, nor negatives. God weakened me last week. So I may be strong.
Give yourself away…. one pound at a time.
Love given so I may love myself
Serve God. Serve others. In order to forgive myself.
Earthly weakness….. God’s strength for me to grasp onto.
Embrace it. “For I am the Lord, your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
Embrace. Give. Love. Serve
So God put it on my heart. Confirmed with Ann Voskamp. I need to plan my days better. It is all a part of forming a habit. (And our Pastor’s sermon summed it up for me….Jesus in the middle of it.)
Planning my meals. Planning my daily routine. Planning everything…. my prayer time, Bible readings, and my water in-take. Ann Voskamp has two planning guides that are helpful. Take a look. You will have to scroll down to the Weekends are for planning post.
Now, for the important note of the day. We walked 49.98 miles. We’ve walked a total of 103.44 miles. This week we ended up near Eddington, ME. We’re 3.06% of the way there!
