If you keep seeing videos of people posting their workout videos on social media, know you are not alone. They are invading my feeds! Honestly, I’m feeling a little bit attacked because that’s not me. However just because I’m not working out doesn’t mean I’m not working on myself. Hence the title Self Love 2.0 😉
For starters, I am who I am and I look how I look. I want to be content with who I am and where I am in my life. I don’t want to look in the mirror and hate what I see, because then I would hate what God created. Genesis 1:27 says “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” This means if I don’t like what I see I’m saying that God didn’t do his job. God doesn’t make mistakes and he doesn’t mess up and everything has a purpose.
For me to have self-love I want to love myself because God made me as I am. In 1 John 4:8 is says “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” God is love through and through. Because I am made in his image he lives in me, he is a part of me. This gives me warm and cozy feelings ❤ In Psalm 139:13 it says “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” This means that he thought of me before I was even thought of being my loved ones. He looked down on Earth and thought this world needs a Christina, an Emily, a Lucy, a YOU. To be thought of, by the creator of all things, the prince of peace, the king of kings, is the kindest thing anyone can do for me.
In the end, we are exactly who we are because we are made in his image. So, just because you’re not working out and posting it online; does not mean you can’t work on yourself.
