”For this reason we never become discouraged. Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed day after day.” – 2 Corinthians 4:16
We need our physical bodies to be able to play a part in the spiritual Body of Christ. The moment you realise that your flesh is only temporary (although extremely important!), you will be able to stop comparing yourself to top models and Hollywood stars, and rather value the vessel God gave you to travel through this life. Unfortunately the world sets a very high and unrealistic expectation on beauty.
Prayer: Ask God for wisdom and courage to graciously grow older, and to appreciate every single part of your being. And if you do not have clarity on where you fit into the Body of Christ, ask for guidance on how to become more involved with God’s work.
Journal entry: Write down your first thought(s) on how you can become more involved in your church or community. Pray about this involvement, as this is most probably where the Body of Christ needs you. And also write down what you love most about your physical body.
