struggling

Post by Rachel15 on Mon Nov 29, 2010 7:06 am

I'd be really grateful for prayer as I have been struggling with self dislike and self-hatred. I know it is a sin and I want to stop. However, when I look at myself in the mirror I really don't like what I see because I am carrying a lot of excess weight and I find it difficult to take care of myself. I've been struggling with it for a long time and I'm concerned that this has really affected my relationship with God. I am wondering now whether I am still saved.

Dear Rachel,
You are created in the image of God. Don't let the extra weight change how you see yourself. If you are not happy about how you look ask God for a plan! I took a free class in nutrition at a local church 2 years ago and it gave me a lot of good information. I have had my ups and downs with weight many women have. I finally found a plan that works for me and I try to walk/exercise to music for 20 minutes a day. May God bless you! huggins

I pray that as you place your helmet of salvation on that you would rest assured. Do you know the hymn Blessed Assurance?

I will keep you in my prayers Rachel. huggins

It feels like the Lord would like to walk with you - literally! Why not start out on very short walks and try to lengthen them over time and see what He has to say to you? I think you'll be delighted as you delight in Him. :hooray:
