Pledge of Peace - Finale
A month ago God pressed it upon my heart to take a journey. He made it very clear that this journey would teach me things about myself and that it did. This journey showed me the importance of loving and nurturing myself. It taught me how to truly forgive myself and in turn has taught me how to forgive those who have offended me.
During these 31 days subtle revelations about me and my relationship with God and those in my life have come about. I have never been ashamed of my handicap, but I did let loved ones and society ridicule me of my weight. This decreased my self-esteem big time. I no longer care what others think of my weight, because I now know that God loves me no matter what I look like. That has taught me to love the skin I'm in. Am I aiming to lose weight presently? Yes, but only because I want to help my lungs have a fighting chance. God honored me with this body, so I must do whatever in my power to take care of it until I no longer need it. If it takes me a year to lose 40 pounds, so be it. But I WILL lose 40 pounds on my terms and for my own reasons and not for another being.
This life is temporary, but while I am in it I am going to be the best me that I can be! It all begins with me loving the me within, trusting God, loving others and living in His righteousness. With those four elements we/I can not go wrong. Thank you all for following this journey and thank you to everyone who took this journey in their lives with me! It has been a rewarding 31 days and I'm excited to see what's ahead, but for now I will cherish this moment, this day and these life lessons learned.
