Power View

I had a friend who wrestled with anorexia & bulimia. It was an entirely awful thing to watch her in this struggle & I couldn’t grasp how she could think she was overweight when the scale said 72lbs & she was like 5’7″. Despite numerous indicators that she was not fat or overweight, she still kept this mindset & it ripped me up. As she struggled with this challenge, I did my level best to be a supportive friend but there was nothing I could do to change her perspective. 
The vision she had of herself was defective & didn’t match truth, so this vision was inherently destructive. If we aren’t careful, our perspective & vision can be smoked with deception & distortion by the devil. This is why it’s absolutely critical that we live in Romans 12:1-2. Don’t be conformed to the world but be transformed by renewing your mind. Let’s choose power vision rather defective vision 🙂

Kris Kory’s Thought-Nuggets and Ramblings

I struggled with Bulimia as a teen. Now I am 47, had the bariatric sleeve surgery and lost 150 pounds so far. Yet, when I look in the mirror, I see LARGE. Romans 12 speaks of not conforming to the world’s view on anything. That includes body image. Fat shaming, Thin shaming, people shaming in general really warp a person’s sense of feeling normal. This is why outside help (as in well intended friends, nice words, etc) don’t register. I look forward to the day I’m in glory because I won’t suffer from that any more. I’ll be ok and loved as is.

totally AGREE!!!

Sara, me conmueve estos testimonios, en mi congregación en células en RDR, me sorprende la gran cantidad de Hermanos que viviendo en Cristo, tienen ataques de pánicos…entiendo que hay tiempos de Dios con cada uno de mis Hermanas y una espiritualidad que debe crecer…La sanidad la otorga Dios.. En sus tiempos…pero pregunto si realmente somos lavados, dejamos lo viejo cuando tomamos al Señor como nuestro Señor y Salvador…por que no nos perdonamos, y vivimos gozosos el amor del Señor.
