I had an absolutely surreal experience on my drive home last Saturday that I just have to share. I was spending some time with the Lord just thanking Him for everything that He is doing in my life right now when something really awesome happened. You see, I was still suffering from some old emotions and baggage that I was carrying with me from when I was overweight. Even though I had been able to let go of a lot of my old thoughts of being worthless and not being good enough for anything or for anyone, I was still carrying some of those with me. These unexplainable waves of emotion just started falling over me. He told me that despite all the feelings I’ve had in the past, I do have worth. He told me that I’m needed, I’m loved, I’m valuable, that He has a purpose for me and that I AM His child! I could literally almost feel myself wrapped up in the biggest hug ever.
Thank you Father for breaking down those walls and old mindsets that hold me back from becoming the person you intended me to be. Thank you for showing me that through my faith in Christ, I am reborn – the old me has gone away. Thank you for reminding me that I am your child – a child of the one true King!
Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Galatians 3:26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
