Read an interesting blog today and thought it was worth posting for you all to read. So here it is:
Alright Ladies, this one is for you.
To be honest, I’m disgusted by the way our world treats you. It’s sad to say, but it’s almost as if our world purposely ignores the way we treat women. And Christian or not, the topic of weight and waist floats across the board of conversations. Not to mention how many women have struggled with weight issues in their past. The heartless conversations definitely don’t help.
The Church is supposed to be a place of freedom, acceptance and purity. But how many times have you found your insecurity level rise while in the presence of Christian men or women? Our conversation is supposed to encourage, not deter.
Ephesians 4:29 – Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
1 Samuel 16:7 – “For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”
If yes, why is that?
Now don’t get me wrong. I am not saying all Christian men/women are like this. But what I am saying is that it’s wrong and not of God. You are beautiful in the eyes or God, and until someone can look at you through His eyes, their sight is of the world and not of purity.
Continue to seek God, and do not let the opinion of men or women crush your foundation in Christ. Regardless if you weigh 50 lbs, 100 lbs, or 300 lbs. You have been made in HIS image, and don’t you ever forget that.
Ladies, your beauty is not defined by your waist size or weight, but by your heart and passion for Jesus Christ. And, if anyone says differently, I wouldn’t waste your time in their presence because they’re only going to bring you down.
A real man knows waist size is a waste. It’s a heart for God that counts.
Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
