Motivation: “What About Me?”/Don’t bother the Master-bronzegoddess01

Motivation to keep pursuing your dreams; even after you’ve given up, even after it feels like God has given up. Your dream is not dead. If He has blessed it, He will provide. Keep going.

The bible says you should treat your body like a temple but sometimes anxiety & insecurity makes it hard. What is your opinion on eating disorders?

They are not a good thing.

Jesus bore stripes on His back so that you don’t have to cut yourself. 

Jesus is the bread of life so you don’t have to starve or stuff yourself. 

You’ll never find lasting peace apart from God. It just doesn’t exist. There is no goodness without Him. 

Isaiah 26:3 “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”

Trusting in God is the best way to combat disorders of any kind. 

And the best way to build faith and trust is to spend time with the on you’re trusting. Pray and don’t stop praying. Read the Bible consistently and expect God to work inside you. 

And trust that God’s going to heal you and give you peace. It might not look like what you expected, but if you trust in Him, He will. 

It might be instantaneous. 

It might be over time.

It might be through modern medicine.

It might be through solid counseling. 

If might be today or tomorrow. 

It might be in 5 years. 

It might be at the final resurrection.

It will happen if you trust in Him. 

the devil talks to us all day long, talk back, tell him he’s a liar!

Psychologists found that the literal act of taking a small step backwards from a situation that is upsetting can regulate your emotions and help you feel more in control. I often employ this technique, both literally and metaphorically. Even a few seconds pause can make a difference.

     “I have a calling: to love people, to care about people, to be friends with people, to make people happy, to be nice, to say hello, to say ‘How are you?’ ‘How was your day today?’ ‘How is everything with you?’ There are too many sad faces in the world. It’s time to make them smile a little bit, to let them know they are loved. Hug somebody. Uplift somebody. People should be happy. Enjoy the day you have—it’s free. You don’t have to be rich. You don’t have to have everything. Just love life. Love people. Be you.”
