How Is love your body month going? Have you really been finding the contentment with were you are at currently? When I hit those imperfect lows this past week, I often felt The Lord reminding me I have a purpose and that is to run the race he Has set before me with endurance. If I want to run this race I really not only love my body unconditionally but find contentment in those low imperfect moments.
Perfectionism is a weakness that I have truly struggled with for years. As my kids get older and we become increasingly busier, I have learned to really let of things to the point were I am able to find contentment in moments of total chaos. I have learned that a 20 minute workout is better than no workout at all on days were I am pressed for time but feeling that I need more. I can finally leave the house a hot mess and not worry. God has granted me grace and really shown me how to live fit but not to the point that it becomes extreme and controls my life. For that I am thankful.
Psalm 19:12-14 “Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from my secret faults. Keep back your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and shall be of innocent great transgression. Let the words of your mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O lord, my strength and my redeemer.”
We are our own worst critics! As you start to see a change in attitude and I have been really focusing on contentment it helps me love my body and the current season of life I am in. It helps me tackle that next obstacle. Last week we focused on finding love and contentment for our bodies and the stage of life we are in. This week we are beating perfectionism. Perfectionism is our enemy and Christ wants us to know that he didn’t create us to be perfect but holy and blameless, and wonderfully made in his image.
Next week we will Focus on 1 thing you want to eliminate that leaves your body feeling drained and one thing you can incorporate into your life that promotes energy and healthy living.
