Hi. Yeah, I found it. Or got it. Or arrived. Or insert your favorite word to describe that place you arrive at that is your reality. My reality is that I’m broken. I’m healing. I’m traveling. I’ve arrived at the finish/starting line of myself. Of who I am in Him when I look in the mirror. Of who I am becoming in Him every day that I decide to be healthier than I was the day before.
Disclaimer: Dont mind the punctuation, grammar, sentence structure or the like…at times my ramblings stretch even my need for hyphens, periods and elipses…*smile* Elipses…They are my favorite and you will find them often here…as this one girl rambles on sweeping the temple.
Sweeping The Temple. What is it? Its my physical body and the need to clean the place up. It’s the thing that He refers to in the Bible when He says in 1 Corinthians chapter 6 verse 19, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Yeah. While the King is in residence, perhaps I may want to spiffy things up a bit…LOL!! Now Now…someone will inevitably comment that the condition of our heart is whats important or that we are spiritual beings in earthen vessels…ALL TRUE. I just happen to be of the thought that perhaps when He said that life more abundantly was mine to have that perhaps being able to walk up with the stairs without huffing and puffing might have been included.
So this is my journey. Broom in hand. Prepared to do what’s asked of me by the one that created me. Surrender? Absolutely needed and He has it from me. This isn’t a cake walk or something I take lightly however my ramblings take shape. It’s my need to stand with my eyes and heart wide open for all to see. My transparent heart. My candid and honest conversations with God and myself. You will get it all. Will you join me? Will you find yourself at a place where the journey to physical freedom through health and wellness is a priority for you? I’m at the starting line and I would love for you to walk with me…the more the merrier!! I’m beyond excited to see where God will take us…Oh yeah…that’s the other thing…I dont know the destination. A slimmer me/you? Perhaps… Lower numbers on the scale? Let’s hope so… A reconciled image in the mirror between the girl I see and the one HE sees? *smile* Most definitely. His word says that as I draw close to Him, He will draw close to me.
It is only through intimacy with Him that such things can take place.
Are you ready?
Grab your brooms and let’s begin sweeping our temples.
