Losing weight in Christ's love, Page 7



 "For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." (Matthew 7:2) 

If we look to criticize others, we internalize it ourselves. Negative thoughts about others are toxic thoughts to ourselves.

"Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." (Philippians 4)  

First, be honest. If you want to lose weight for Godly reasons, for health, for energy, to repent from possible gluttony, for husbands, to find a godly husband, (most important) to give glory to Him; then God is wherever you are to carry that burden. If your goal is to drive men wild, to lord it over other women in social settings, to feel superior, well, believe me, God knows and I highly doubt you will find much here. 

Dieting almost always fails because so many of us approach it with an attitude of "I'm not good enough" as we are. Many beat ourselves up while mentally dangling seductive visions of ourselves born from today's culture. If we are in Christ, then the Holy Spirit is indwelling us, and we might be able to lie to ourselves about our motives but He knows us better than we do. So first and foremost, be honest with yourself. Once you have that, get ready to love yourself through Christ's eyes, which melts away that kneejerk reaction to toxic thoughts that cripple us. Toxic thoughts about ourselves and those around us. Anger, guilt, rebellion, there are so many reasons besides good taste that cause us to eat too much. My prayer is that all of us discover God's truths about how He sees us, about the love that He has for us, about His protection and strength in carrying the burden as we discover Him through our trials and the trials of others on this page.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Everything published was very logical. However, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting
    your content isn't good, however what if you added a title to maybe grab people's attention?
    I mean "Losing weight in Christ's love, Page 7" is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post titles to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything've
    written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

    You really make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

  20. It takes GOd to get any good thing done. This verse of the bible says it all. "Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." (Philippians 4). May God help His children.
