Prayer: For Those Struggling With Body Image
I usually keep my own struggles between me and the Lord, but all week God has been telling me that I needed to share this prayer with others.
Maybe you're feeling the same way I am currently feeling, or just need a little encouragement to surrender it all to God, but here's the prayer that I wrote to God last week. I hope it touches your heart in the same way it keeps touching mine, every time I read it.
Heavenly Father,Today I am struggling with my body. I don't quite understand why my body has gained so much weight and doesn't want to let it go. I eat healthfully, trying to honor my body, my temple, that You have given me.Lord, Your word says that my joy, my happiness, comes from You - not my dress size. As I refocus my energy on You, please take care of the rest?I want to focus my energy, my mind, on things that matter to You God. Give me Your eyes so I can see as You see, Lord.And allow my heart to be filled with love, peace, and forgiveness, not just towards others but towards myself too.In Jesus Name, Amen.
