Thankfulness: yesterdays conviction was so eye opening and so loving. excited about today’s renewal and the new awakening I’m feeling
Step 1 (capture thoughts) – my active reach is helping me fight off the attacks from Satan on my body and my husband. It’s time to get more specific thought, dive deeper to find the root of these toxic thoughts. Use what the Holy Spirit Stirred in me yesterday – What would you life look like if you replaced every body image thought, every food thought, every weight thought with ME?!
Step 2 (focused reflection) – Pulling out the lies “I can’t go without food” – LIE TRUTHs: God sustains me. I trust in God for all thing. I can rest in my trust of God because He cares for me. God is doing great things within me.
Step 3 (journal) – my family has been seeing change in my attitude, strange thing is that they have no idea how much my internal thoughts have changed. That’s probably why they can see it though – I’m not distracted by my self-hate and am able to love them better.
Step 4 (pray and listen) – today I will remind myself of Luke 12:23 and I will take every thought about food and my weight captive making it obedient to the truth that God sustains me, Jesus is the bread of life and I have been given a sound mind do know the difference between truth, lies, flesh and spirit.
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothingLuke 12:23
Step 5 (active reach) – today I will take each hunger pain captive. I will be thankful for every bite and slow down. I will praise God each time I begin to think about my body. I will also continue to speak Isaiah 26:3, Psalm 19:14 and Proverbs 4:20-23 out loud
