Can we sit and have a talk? Thanks. I have had this on my mind for a while but really didn't know how to go about taking the first step.
This weekend I was given an assignment. The assignment was to forgive myself for something from my past. I have known that I needed to begin doing that but just let it go. This weekend's assignment has pushed me to take that step and do what I already knew that I needed to do. (Thanks BLC21!!)
There are so many things that I know I need to forgive you for but today, I am going to start with forgiving you for giving up.
I know that things get rough and things knock you down but honey, you gotta get back up when that happens.
I forgive you for the starts and stops, the mad dashes and the fizzle outs. I forgive you for giving up on your plans and giving up on yourself.
I know you think that you are in this all by yourself. I know you think that no one really cares. I know you have thought that you weren't good enough or that you couldn't do it and would never be healthy and thin. I forgive you for thinking that way and believing those things. I am here and I care and I believe in you and you have so many Spark friends that care and believe in you too! You are NOT alone!
I forgive you for telling yourself that you can't do things. You can do it! You can do all things through Christ who give you strength! That is in the Bible girls and God's word doesn't return to Him void! I forgive you for not stepping out on a limb to try things. You have let so many things pass you by but we can start today and live life to the fullest!!! I forgive you for worrying about what everyone else thinks. They aren't you and you don't have to do everything that everyone else does or wants you to do.
I forgive you for being scared of losing the weight. I know that this is like uncharted waters and the weight, although you have hated it, has become a hiding place. It is time to shed that weight and become the woman that God created you to be.
It is time to stop telling yourself all the lies of defeat and begin to speak the truth of success! You can do it and you are worth it. You are sick and tired of being sick and tired so let's do something about it and put all this negative past in the past. I forgive you! Now let's do this thing and move on to the positive future ahead of you!!!
Thanks for taking the time to listen and now....LET'S DO WORK!!!
