2 Corinthians 12:9 continued ~ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
I’m writing this post , because I have been influenced by a devotional book I’ve read: Made to Crave by: Lyse TerKeust . It has a sister book by the same name.
However, this post is based on a quote I found on day 3’s thought of the day, which is:
“We were made for more! More than this failure…more than this cycle…more than being ruled by our taste buds, body image, rationalizations, and guilt. We were made for victory. Sometimes we just have to find our way to that truth. ~ Lysa TerKeurst
As, an imperfectly made person, whose body weight is a few pounds over. I also don’t have marketable skin tone, features or hair. Further more my feet are way to big for my body. That I have to careful of what I put on my feet. Least, I look like a cat walking in boots :)))) Those are just a few flaws that ail me. I have others, such as, human emotions where my words can mirror them, when I don’t put them in check.
So, I’m amazed, that in our Heavenly Father’s eyes I’m beautiful and through Jesus Christ my transgressions are forgiven. This Gives me the opportunity to forgive myself and humble myself to whom I may have offended and start a brand new day.
It is for that leisure that I felt Lysa’s quote in my soul. As the Verse from 2 Corinthians 12:9 heals my soul as my insecurities try to mold me. So, I must stay strong.
Have a Blessed Sunday evening and may our prayers of a peace of mind be answered ~ Amen
