You are VALUABLE & LOVED
The more I work through my own internal issues, the more aware I am of what I’m saying and doing in front of Rhys.
His world is colored by my perspective.
Am I being a person of faith?
Do I turn to God when challenges arise, or do I crumble?
Does he know that he has a purpose? That he is valued and loved?
Am I instilling habits that set him up well?
Health is more than what we eat - though, you know I’m all about that part!
It’s also our emotional, mental, and spiritual health as well.
Am I showing him what it looks like to care for all of those areas?
Am I being consistent in walking out the example I want to set for him?
Honestly, some of the answers to these questions aren’t what I want them to be.
I’m not perfect.
I get impatient.
I get discouraged.
I get stressed.
I get overwhelmed.
I get angry.
I get frustrated.
But you know what else?
I get a LOT of opportunities to take hold of God’s grace and to learn.
When I start to worry about doing everything “right”, I feel tremendous peace in choosing the path of growth and humility.
Owning the fact that I’m in progress is very freeing.
I want Rhys to know that it’s okay to be on this lifelong journey of learning and growth.
That no matter what, he’s loved and accepted.
I think so often we forget those two things - that you don’t have to be perfect, and that you’re loved regardless.
“Getting healthy” can feel like a game of proving yourself and your worth.
Or maybe it feels like something that only someone who’s worthy should even bother with, and that’s just not you.
In either case, I want to set the record straight:
YOU ARE VALUABLE & LOVED
It makes sense to love and care for the body of someone who is valuable & loved.
Let your health choices come from the TRUTH that you are loved and treasured most of all by the One who made you and knows everything about you - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Are you allowing in God's grace, hope, and transformation in your life?
