I am in maintenance/lose a few pounds/tone up mode. I've always had self-image issues. While I still am grossed out by my (nude) body, I have learned to appreciate how it looks in clothes...most likely from doing all my fashion blogging. (Check the blog out! Link is posted below!)

(Old)
I was 149 pounds when I entered a VERY emotionally (and physically) abusive relationship in 2006. During the following three years, I battled anorexia (as a direct result of him...) I didn't think I was too skinny, I actually enjoyed that weight, but I was also eating under 500 calories a day, and knew it was unhealthy.


I still have TONS of body image issues, which are SLOWLY getting a little better. I do, however, feel so much happier, exercising and eating healthily.

The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

Show Me Your Ways
Song by Hillsong Live

Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways

If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

Have a blessed week.

No matter what the circumstances are, we have to remember that the Bible says "Give thanks in all things"
Don Moen is one of my favorite Christian music artists. Here are the words to one of his songs, that I hope will minister to you this week. I sing it as a prayer.

Thank You Lord
Song by Don Moen
Bible says it's a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, amen
I come before You today
And there's just one thing that I want to say
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've given to me
For all the blessings I can not see
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me Your light
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
You took my sin and my shame
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name

SOmetimes I feel so discouraged on this journey. I feel defeated and like I am a failure. Some days I feel so unworthy knowing I have not made the right choices.
At times like those, Christian music can change my focus and lift my spirit. today I share the lyrics of a song written by Geron Davis. His wife Becky does such a touching rendition.

Mercy Saw Me- Written By Geron Davis

The years had left scars. The scars had left pain. How could he recognize me? I wasn't the same. I knew I should pay and I knew the price. For justice and law demanded my life. Yet, his tender heart heard my desperate cry. And he saw my past through merciful eyes.

Chorus: Beautiful! That's how mercy saw me; Though I was broken and so lost, mercy looked past all my faults. Justice of God saw what I had done, but mercy saw me through the Son; Not what I was, but what I could be, that's how mercy saw me.

Wherever you go, you can't go too far that his eyes of mercy can't see where you are. He loves you too much to leave you alone. You're flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. Yet his heart cries out for your heart today. See yourself through his eyes and then you will say, you'll say:

Bridge: Sin has stolen my dignity and all my self-esteem. But I was made brand new again when mercy looked at me.

Know that when the Lord looks at YOU - in HIS eyes - You are beautiful!

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
