can simply seem like a challenge.
In the light of a new day, what ended as heartbreak,
could be the beginning of a new relationship.
In the light of a new day, what burdens weighed us down,
have been lifted and we now weigh less then ever before.
~ Sheila King
How do you handle struggles and disappointments? Do you fret over them to the point you have a restless night and feel completely overwhelmed as the alarm clock goes off? I have been there, and at times, I am still there. But I have to say I am growing, and maturing and feeling like above all, I can always run to the Father and in the least talk about what is bothering me ~ no matter how small or big it is. NOTHING is too small.

As God created the beauty of the earth, He too created the beauty in you. I have one eye that is bigger then the other, and that is His unique signature on me. I have a birth mark between my upper left thigh and my groin area. THAT too is part of His unique signature on me. I am learning, as each moment goes by that there is nothing about me that God hasn't already had His hands on. Nothing. Nada. NOT ONE THING.
Did I eat the best yesterday? Nope. I had sugar. I had lots of it but in little bits at a time. Do I feel like a failure? Nope. I am realizing that I am just wired with a sweet tooth. Always have had it, always will. It's a part of who I am, my unique stamp that God gave me. Sure I can go on sugar fasts and get rid of the cravings, or I can put on my big girl pants and learn how to not only discipline myself to use moderation but I can also enjoy the little tidbits I give myself.
Since I am not trying to be scale focused, I am learning to accept me for what I am and work with it. Not change it. But work with the hard parts to allow them to make me a better me. For better or worse. I want to be stronger, healthier, more fit, but until I can embrace what I have and know what I am working with how I can improve? It's like saying to a car dealership I want a red car and not focusing on that you might really need something bigger then a car to fit your needs. I can easily say I want to be 120 pounds (not that I want to really go that low) but yet not look to see if my body would even be healthy at that number. I realize it isn't about "ME", it is about becoming the woman that God created me to be. I know for a fact He did not create me to panic over a candy bar. He did not create me to weigh myself five times a day. He did not create me to be a food Nazi and tell everyone they are eating unhealthy and I have the perfect answer. No. He created me with a heart that is passionate for His people, particularly his daughters. He created me to change my life in a way that inspires others themselves to live a life of inspiration. He created me to teach young ones how to love Him, not for what He can do/did do, but simply for WHO He is. He created me to love and to be filled with Joy.
