It Takes Time

Friday, July 01, 2016

It takes time... Wow, six months have gone by and I have had my struggles learning to change my habits...Its been difficult sometimes and other times seems so easy to walk this walk, but then this morning a thought came to me about a butterfly. I realized that even a catapillar takes time to become a butterfly, but until it does, it is still beautiful and unique in its own way, Genesis 1:26 says, "And God said, Let us make man in our image" and chapter 2:7, "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."
So the Lord made me who I am.....We are already beautiful...Created by the breath of God....Wow! So instead of rejoicing of who we really are, we beat ourselves up, listen to other peoples opinions of us, put ourselves down, get discouraged, etc.. because we listened to lies our whole life. Get rid of the negative thoughts, the lies, the negativity and dwell on the truth! You are one in 7 billion! There is no one like you! You are unique, special, amazing, and beautiful!!!! So take time to realize your amazing qualities, characteristics etc. We are not supposed to be like someone else!!! If every flower looked the same, every animal looked the same, every tree, rock, cloud, bug etc. looked the same, what would earth look like? What if everything was one color? What if we all looked, talked and acted the same??? It wouldn't sound very appealing to be you, would it? BUT, When you realize you have a special purpose, you're unique, you have amazing qualities, creativity, and amazing characteristics etc. you can speak the truth without sounding prideful, but appreciative of who you are created to be...with joy you can say, "I am one in seven billion. There is no one on earth like me!!! Thank you God for all of Your creation, including me.

    great post! I too believe this way. Yet realize there are days that I am my worst enemy! Especially in 90 degree weather with no air conditioning! I am out of control eating foods like ice cream & diet pop, or anything to try to cool down. I do know that I am to forgive myself, and tomorrow is another day to try again. But if I were to constantly fight this battle of damage from prescription drugs, and air conditioning there would be no tomorrow. I need to do what I told a blind girl that I am mentoring to-pray, pray, pray, unceasingly!
    God I come to you today, feeling defeated. I know there are many of us, feeling unworthy, and defeated. I know you are the great comforter, so please come to in our hour of need, and show me how to overcome all the humidity without eating myself into disease, and an unhealthy weight. In Jesus' Name this I pray.
