With Valentines day happening this month why not start praying and meditating on just how much God loves you and just how important it is to Him that you also love yourself the way God loves you? Your body is a good body and it belongs to Christ. It is designed to be the place where you and God meet and where you engage in the world with His love.
Did you ever stop to think about God's commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves? SEE [MARK 12: 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’] What does loving yourself look like when it comes to taking care of yourself? Are you nourishing and taking care of yourself as a member of God's body?
In just a little over a week we’re going to see the pattern of this world lining the shelves with chocolate candy, romance and flowers. Valentine’s Day is going to fill our mind with illusions and images that entice us to eat things that are addicting, especially chocolate.
Speaking about Valentine's Day, what about the thoughts of romance? How often have you heard yourself saying, “I wish, I wish I had a body like hers”. How often have we tried to lose weight and look good for a man? Is your body meant to be a sex symbol or a sanctuary? An ornament or an instrument? Are you living for self-gratification or God’s glorification? As Christians our main focus when trying to lose weight and maintain it means we are after purity not vanity. Ok, I said enough, I promise you'll love this short devotion.
LET"S DIVE INTO THIS SHORT POWERFUL DEVOTION
For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church: but we are members of his body, of his flesh
and of his bones.
Since it's the truth that sets us free, free from foods that are addicting, free from unhealthy habits and free from crippling emotions, we come to love this truth even when it hurts.
To love God is to love truth. It is by listening to God that we learn to be more aware of ourselves and of others. When we are willing to spend time alone in stillness we are willing to seek the will of the Father.
To love God means we are willing to give up our own will
and become receptive to the love of God.
Removing our trigger foods and changing our eating habits is necessary in order to stop feeding our illusions and let God’s truth shine through.
As we choose to live according to the truth we experience the fact that we see self-defeating habits slip away as we choose to no longer
cling to old damaging dependencies.
God's love and truth is life-changing because it is him that is changing us and we are gradually able to assimilate the reality of our situation.
By accepting reality and God‘s love in our heart and by refraining from using food as an escape we are able to live with truth instead of illusions.
