Perfected by Him

I’ve learned a lot about myself over the past few months, lessons that have hit hard as of late.

I’ve learned that we can easily slip into the lies told by society, culture, the devil and our peers but it’s our choice to believe them.

I’ve struggled with my weight for many years, having fought many battles and won, the war still rages…It’s not the weight that I battle with…it’s the insecurity that comes with it.

In those moments I have to remember that God made me, 100%. He knew EVERYTHING about me before I was born and knew what my struggles, fears, insecurities and battles would be. He however did not cause them and He has given me all the tools to overcome them.

Hebrews 10 reads “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” By Christ dying on the cross I am perfect. That literally translates into perfect in who I am, in my identity. I am perfect because my identity is in Him; He gave his life so I could be free.

It’s a daily, sometimes minute by minute confession of this fact. We live in freedom because HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US.

Recently I noticed that in my day to day I was not giving these struggles up to Him. I would reflect on them and mirror them into my relationships. This, I know hurt some and caused pain. For that I’m sorry. I’m sorry that it caused heartache and anxiety, not only to me but to those around me. I’m sorry I can’t go back and fix it…and only hope that it repairs.

I choose, and I hope that if you struggle with your identity, whether that be emotionally, sexually, physically,to remain in Him and remember that He has made you perfect by His sacrifice.
