Today Godís message for you, "is to discover and nurture your inner source of strength. You possess strength and courage to battle through all of lifeís struggles. Deep within you is an infinite source of courage. This is what makes you a strong individual, ready to battle through each day. For every obstacle he puts before you, there is equal inner force to overcome."
Colossians 1:11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy...
I think for me that this is the key to my losing weight. I am on a teeter totter; on my heavy days I am on the ground trying to bounce to get to the top again. This is a ,journey in my soul.
My insecurities are deeply ingrained in me. There is a significant person in my life that told me negative things from the time I was a little girl to present day. I know that God wants me to forgive and let go. I have done this so many times and been at peace. Then I allow her back in just to break me down again.
I think the real message from God to me today is to reach deep inside me and grab that strength that He has given me. That same strength that He gave me to walk away when I was 15 and say, "NO MORE".
I am strong with Christ who strengthens me. I am beautiful from the inside out because His love fills my heart. Today I can let Him love me with His perfect love. Today I will hear Him. I will let Him lead me to the place where He wants me to stand strong and beautiful.
I will have patience with myself in this journey to be a more healthy me.
