I am doing a book study called Thin Within and have really struggled this week with fitting it in. Yesterday I realized that I was putting everything else before me. Taking more time to tend to others and not allowing time to tend to me. So I put on a worship song and laid out on the office floor with my face in the carpet and cried out to God. As I got still before Him, it wasn't pictures or words which is pretty much what I always get but instead just a feeling of, I got you. I got up from the floor and posted this status:
"How does He see you? We can talk all day about diet and exercise and getting healthy but true health and beauty start from within oneself. Deep within the heart and soul wherein lies your definition of who you believe you are. No matter what it looks like, have you taken that definition and held it up against who He says you are and how He sees you.
So take out a piece of paper fold it in half then making 2 columns number each side 1-5. Now without thinking twice about it write down the first 5 words that you would use to describe yourself. Now ask the Lord for 5 words He uses to describe you. How do the two list compare/relate to each other. You are more loved and beautiful and uniquely made than you know or perceive. #learntoloveyouexactlythewayyouwerecreatedanddreamptup "
