1 Timothy 2 But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Seeing as Madelyn is now 4 months old, I start getting hit with all theses crazy,worldly thoughts about my weight..:( No matter how many times I try to tell myself, "the outward doesn't matter", "I shouldn't worry about", "who am I trying to impress?" I still get hit with these thoughts, I bet I'm not the only one either (lots of us just had babies) Just a guess?
Good thing that our thoughts aren't our own,they come to us out of no where just like the analogy of the bird pooping on our heads. The world puts out such a trip on us as young mothers to have a "perfect body", Lately Jonathan has been helping me see that I would much rather have peace in my home and enjoy my girls, than be caught up in the pressure of "getting my body back", as the world would say.
It also doesn't make me a very pleasant wife if I'm continually obsessing about it. Jonathan loves me for who I am a NOT MY BODY. I know I will need continually reminded of this but it definitely helps me to get it on my mouth. What greater joy is there than our children! I know that getting help with this constant battle is partly what it means that woman are saved through child bearing
