Ugh!! I’m so sick of looking in the mirror and not being pleased! If it’s not my weight it’s my hair, and if it’s not my hair it’s my weight (ha who am I kidding most of the time it’s my weight). It would be easy to lead you guys to believe that my physical weight is the real issue, but that’s not the case. While I would love to lose a few pounds, the weight I’m referring to is emotional.
In a world that focuses so much on appearance, I’ve been convinced to zoom in on my outer appearance while spending little to no time dealing with the emotional weight I’ve been carrying around. I often find myself over thinking various situations (like this blog for example). The natural me has a tendency to spend countless hours dwelling on negative things. This habitual routine causes a lot of sleepless night and down right bad days; but most of all it tampers with my ability to focus.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.(Hebrews 12:1)
While my physical weight matters (a lot) I realize that my emotional weight is what’s really weighing me down. The word instructs me (gotta make it personal) to lay aside every weight. I wasn’t designed nor am I expected to carry weight…and while this revelation is currently fresh and exciting I realize that this is a journey. Join me! We have a lot to do.
God’s daughter. His wife. Their mother. Your friend.
