I am very happy.
1 Thessalonians 4:4-5 says "Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body, not abusing it, as is so common among those who know nothing of God". (The Message)
My middle son and I were discussing this verse because they had been talking in school about intimacy and the boundaries God sets up for us to protect us from many of life's pitfalls. To live within these boundaries will require some adjustments in our mental attitudes. We talked about how teenagers need to understand that a Godly mind-set is important in how they think and act concerning intimacy with their boyfriend of girlfriend.
This got me thinking about how I had been abusing my body by not eating properly and exercising. I was not giving dignity to my body. I was definitely abusing my body by the food I was choosing to put into it most days. I need to change my mental attitudes about food. With God's help I think I have made a good start.
I am praying for all of you in your weight loss journeys also.
