Every time I try a new dress on I take a picture and send it to my sisters – cause codependent. 🤷🏼♀️
Guess what my reaction was when I put this one on? For a hot second – when I glanced at the picture before I sent it – I saw a big belly.
Now y’all, I know that’s ridiculous. My stomach isn’t big. But wouldn’t the devil love for me to believe that. For me to dwell on it. For me to be in my head over that all day long. Because let’s be honest – as women in this worldly world our focus tends to flitter that way.
And if I were in my head about that all day I wouldn’t be able to focus on my purpose, which is leading people to Christ.
Too bad for the devil that I started speaking scripture over myself a long time ago. And I challenge you to start doing the same.
In my twenties I would have listened to that voice. But in my forties – in my forties I only listen to THE voice. The voice of my savior. He said that I was fearfully and wonderfully made. He said I was born for a purpose. He said I was made in His image. He did not say you have a flaw that everyone will stare at all day and judge you for.
Just an FYI, fearfully when translated from the Hebrew means with great reverence, heart-felt interest, and with respect. Wonderfully when translated from the Hebrew means unique and set apart.
Wow!! That’s amazing, right?!
I want you to remember what I’m about to say – the flaw that you see isn’t there. It’s merely a mirage created by the devil to mess with your mind.
Sister, you are beautiful.
You are wonderfully made.
You were created for a purpose.
In His image.
“for it was You who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I have been fearfully and wonderfully made”. Psalms 139:13-14
