I recently added to my affirmations. One morning I rushed out of the house without saying them and it didn't feel right. So I went back to my room, started saying them and I started to weep...you see the night before I had binged a lot of food. This day I was supposed to go to go to the gym.
God told me I was using the gym as a way to punish myself for binging food. As I wept, I felt God lead me to start speaking love and acceptance over every part of my body where I felt insecure.
I was also directed to Song of Solomon 5 the day before by a friend. I was able to read the Shulamite woman's thoughts of her beloved over myself and at the end declare that "this is my beloved, my friend". Today, I'm fighting to be my own friend again. Not an enemy or an accuser. Just a friend that wants the best for a friend. Jesus is still helping me come #outofdepression.
Soon Song of Solomon 5 will be up as well. But for now, I'm speaking over my body words of acceptance. #WordOnTheWall
