Who do you think you are?
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he told me: "My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak." So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ's power will live in me.
Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It's clear that when I'm weak, I'm strong.
I like the analogy of you are the portrait that you paint. I have a hard time with this one and I need to work on this but I do believe it is true. Losing weight has always been a struggle for me and the times that I have lost weight have improved this self image a lot. Now I know that God is on my side and doesn't care how big or small I am. Improve your self image and move the bar up for your expectations and good things will happen - I'm sure and I'm going to work on it!
