We live, blessed by God.
I love the verses in Psalm 139, no matter what size, shape or the genes you have, His word holds true and you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Don’t let the world around you determine or define who you are. Let God’s word speak to you and know that He has created you with a purpose and He is making you into the beautiful person you are.
O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
Psalm 139: 1, 13-18
There are many definitions and ideas about what “healthy” is and looks like. It depends on who you ask. Some say its being active, some say it’s skinny, others may say it’s eating when you crave something, it could be as long as you have no major health issues the way you eat doesn’t matter, there are many ideas…knowing your body takes time. Learning the THM concepts has helped me figure out how my body works and has helped me to understand how to keep myself healthy. But most importantly God defines you as being fearfully and wonderfully made, take care of what God has given you.
The concepts in the book, Trim Healthy Mama, are wonderful and make sense! I love that the two sisters also talk about biblical truths. It is a blessing.
Some of us struggle with understanding the difference between S, E and FP. I admit, at first it took me some time and learning to understand the differences and how to put foods together. There are still some things I don’t always understand, so I am still learning! You can check out my husbands review of the THM book here.
There are many helpful blog posts that can be used as a guide in your process of reading through the book and understanding the concepts as well. Some that have been helpful to myself have been from the following blogs:
Though there are many other helpful sites they in no way are a replacement for reading through the Trim Healthy Mama book for the fundamentals of the plan. I encourage anyone who does not have the book to take the time to read the book for yourself. Listen to what Pearl and Serene have to say. It changed my view of what “healthy” means. Living and eating to keep your body healthy for God’s glory.
Above all seek God. He has blessed us with so much.
