 About Self
If I were just my physical body, I would be, of most people, most desolate. I have tortured it, overfed it, under-exercised it, hated it, driven it almost to death. If I were my emotions, I would also be in the same case, having lived my life by my emotions - having hated myself and sometimes others. If I were just my mentality - I would be in constant argument and not agreement with everything I have done with my emotions and physicality! I cling to the Spiritual side of me that hungers for my holy Creator Who keeps me from self harm, Who loves me in spite of me. My Spiritual side is in its infancy, looking at life as something brand new and exciting beyond measure - because He blessed me with it, giving me newness of life, and the ability to forgive myself for the pain I have allowed in my physical, emotional and mental beingness, as He has so graciously forgiven me through His beloved (and mine too!) Christ. I am not a goddess, but I am a growing child of His, having the sweetest privilege of having Him as my Father. I cannot see myself as "light" (especially weight-wise!), but as I follow Him, I draw closer to His light, and anticipate greatly being bathed in the light of the Christ throughout eternity. Through Him I can learn to respect my physical body, take care of it - nurture that and my emotional and mental self. Sometimes I feel closest to Him in dreams where I free myself from the restraints of the physical and find myself yearning for a closeness with Him that is beyond anything I could ever know or experience on this playing field called Earth. And yes, we can be the master or our bodies - when we become aware that through the Christ and His gift of grace - we can be free of the temptation to sin against ourselves, our fellow man and most especially, against our wondrous almighty God. Matthew 7:21 "Not every one that merely saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity." Loving you through Him, while snuggled in His wondrously warm arms, Judi
