Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

His Thoughts Towards Me

     In the post called, "Fat and Ugly" I shared that it was revealed to me that I held that belief about my physical appearance, on a deep level, which had surfaced lately, and was seeking the Lord for why I would have that self-rejecting thought. Why did I place so much importance on how I looked? He told me to wait for my healing.
     He didn't follow my program of telling the answers to the "whys" that I thought I needed. I am learning the answer to everything is not always in understanding the problem.
     A few days ago, He spoke a few Life-giving words to me from His Spirit to mine: "You are precious." I don't know how these words brought healing to me, but they did. Not to say that I won't struggle in this area ever again, but knowing my preciousness to Him will protect me from ever being shaken by whatever my outward appearance is. Our preciousness  to Him is a strong tower against our own negative perceptions about ourself, because it's better to be precious than pretty. One is fleeting and the other is eternal.
