Psalm 139:14 The Message
In my last post about "Change," we talked about changing the way we look at food, making new habits regarding our eating, and learning to daily rely on God, not ourselves.

Our control equals failure
God's control equals fulfillment.
Another change God would have us make is the way we view ourselves. Yes, the tighter we hold the reins of control, the less success we have. The irony of serving the Lord is the more we release control to Him, the more control we have.
You are special.
Another change God would have us make is how we view ourselves. We draw closer to God and begin to see things through His eyes. He sees us as His masterpiece.
When man tried to build a tower to the heavens at Babel, God stopped them by confusing their language. God Himself said that if He didn't stop man, they would succeed. He sees us as able to do anything. Look at the knowledge man has come up with in the last hundred years. Yes, man is unstoppable without God's intervention.
God wants what's best for us, so He steers us toward Him. Even the heavens cry out of His grandeur. The mountains and oceans remind us of a Higher Power able to help where we falter.
In Christ, we are precious and beautiful, whether we're underweight or obese, black or red, highly intelligent or slow. He loves us unconditionally. He longs to call us His children.

Remember, change the way you look at food.
Change the way you look at yourself.
With Christ, all things are possible, even losing a hundred pounds.
