Self-Absorption

As I was dressing this morning, I began to dwell on the amount of weight I had gained over the past few years.  It was definitely visible.  Then I thought of how thin I was through my earlier years and almost laughing aloud, I thought, surely, I must have been the perfect size for at least an instant.  I couldn’t have gone from too thin to too heavy overnight.

Today is God’s day and I will spend it praising Him, not in bondage over false images of me.  If I truly am made in the image and likeness of God, I must be perfect in His eyes!  My desire is to see through His eyes and that cannot be done while criticizing His creation, which in the first chapter of Genesis says “God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.”

No, I think I’ll look at what He sees!
