Week 3 - Day 1
Chapter 7 - I'm Not Defined by the Numbers
This chapter has a basic and simple message...
pg 74 We can be victorious. We can step on the scale and accept the numbers for what they are - an indication of how much our body weighs - and not an indication of our worth.
We have to place our confidence in God and not in our self-image. If you have a poor self-image, then get closer to God and it will improve. If you let comments and remarks affect you, then learn to ignore them...how?
2Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Every comment or remark that comes your way is an opportunity to grow closer to God or further away from God. We grow away from God by allowing the remarks to hurt us and affect our self-image. But if we want to grow closer to God, then ask that comment or remark... pg 75 "Are you true? Are you beneficial? Are you necessary?" And if the answer is no, then we don't open the door of our heart. We make the choice to walk away from the comment and all the negative thoughts it could harvest if we let it in.
