Day 10 of Prayer Guide - Confidence for Your Body

Day Ten
Confidence for Your Body

Psalm 45:11 The King is enthralled by your beauty

Am I defined by a number? The one who stares back from the scale taunts me. The one I push at the gym mocks me. Both beckon to by-gone days when the numbers were different – lower, higher, a source of pride.

Weak one, come experience confidence for your body.

Today I Pray for You:

·         To soak in the unconditional love of the One who shapes you.

·         To push through the fog of numbers and see clearly the One who is enthralled.

Today You Pray:

Strong God, I am a reflection of Your beauty. I am a reservoir of Your strength. The numbers cannot define me because You’ve already made Your declaration. I find favor in Your eyes.

Allow this truth to flush through my body, undress my insecurity and clothe me with Your vast love. I stand in front of the full length mirror of Your devotion and see the reflection of the King.

  1. Hey girl! This sentence was meant for me today.. "To push through the fog of numbers." We have an event coming up and not many people coming yet. God just like you taught Elisha...it's about obedience not how many people show up! Praising God for the opportunity to walk in his ways, not mine!

  2. That's a lot to chew on. I've wrestled long and hard with those numbers, it's only recently I've learned to ignore them and look deeper. Valuing wholeness and beauty above size and expectations. Thank you Shannon for pointing us back to the heart of the matter!

  3. There are some days the fog is so thick that it takes all the pushing I can do just to muck through it. Great post Shannon. Thanks!

  12. I try not to define myself by a number either:) I rarely weigh myself - much nicer to just focus on how you feel:)
    Thanks for sharing,

  13. Praying this... "Strong God, I am a reflection of Your beauty. I am a reservoir of Your strength. The numbers cannot define me because You’ve already made Your declaration. I find favor in Your eyes." I'm taking some medication that makes me hungry and makes me gain weight... trying to focus on His view of me and being confident in that :) Thank you Shannon!

  20. Hi Shannon - beautiful and so what I'm about the first 5 minutes of my day every morning. But I will pray this prayer and not let numbers define me. I am defined by my creator. Thank you for the reminder.
