Hello to everyone reading my new blog post!! I hope this post will be a blessing to you as you read it.
Alright, let’s get started. This one is for my ladies out there. Boys can apply it to themselves as well, as the spirit leads lol.
So ladies, let’s say if all that weave, makeup, all your possession, and your circle of friends were taken away and you are left isolated in a little room with nothing but a mirror in front of you. Looking at the mirror, would you be able to identify the person staring at you? That is my question for you today.
You see, if someone would ask me, I’d admit that, yeah, I am chasing perfection. Yes, I do want to be perfect (you can claim that for yourself as well) but not in the same sense that you would normally think of perfection. My idea of perfection is to be at a place where I can truly be 100% myself. A place where I can laugh about embarrassing moments such as slipping and falling in public, farting unexpectedly, getting lost in space and so forth. The idea is that I don’t have to feel ashamed or feel guilty about anything (with the exception of sinning against God), or feel like I am living for someone, according to their standards or expectations of who they want me to be and how they want me to act. I don’t have to fit into anyone’s box because I am here to accomplish a purpose as destined by God. I don’t have to aspire to become any role model or someone else that is not me. In aspiring to be someone else, I am deciding to give up achieving true fulfillment in being myself.
True fulfillment in life is found when your mind, your body, your spirit and your purpose are one, in harmony. There has to be a balance between your mind, body and you have to lean on your spirit to lead and coach you to accomplish your purpose. To be led by your spirit, you need maturity in the discernment of the spirit and obedience to the voice of the spirit of God every single step along the way. Eventually, that will lead you to real happiness and fulfillment in life and finally finding your purpose in life.
To get to that point of fulfillment, it is very necessary that your mind, body, spirit, and purpose are one. Your mind has got to be your own (do not let anyone or society invade your mind not even the enemy). You have to live and think for yourself and feed every part of your being: your body, mind, and soul. Never be afraid to stand out.
See, I always used to think that I was smart because I used to get good grades in school. As I got older, I began to realize that I wasn’t that smart.
THE TRINITY OF THE BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT
that there is a wisdom beyond myself that I cannot acquire on my own but I needed to tap into. The moment I began to acquire the wisdom that is above all human wisdom, then I realized how little I know. Sometimes, some of us get so carried away with what we know, thinking we know a lot, but in reality, we don’t. When you acquire true wisdom, you have further insights into many things that many can’t see. Fewer things in life begin to bother/stress you because you have tapped into something bigger than yourself.
Have you ever thought of why someday you look at your reflection and you love what you see and other days you don’t? When we love what we see in the mirror, it is a reflection of the purity of our mind and heart. When what’s on the inside is beautiful, it is reflected in what we see on the outside. When our hearts and mind begin to get polluted with things that are not of God, it is reflected in what we see when we look at ourselves in the mirror. Those are the days we say to ourselves “I look so ugly today”. So the next time you look at yourself in the mirror, check the state of your mind and your heart. The moment you are able to be in a state of purity and love, you begin to see the world through a different lens. You will begin to see the beauty in all things including the beauty in yourself. And then, you will begin to truly love yourself which will enable you to love others. Sometimes we focus so much on making sure our body is in a healthy state while neglecting our mind, which resides in our soul, and our spirit. Can you imagine having an unhealthy spirit? Think about it this way. The body is for the present but the spirit is eternal. You may have the perfect body now but wouldn’t you rather invest in something that will remain forever? Just like how the Father, Son, and Spirit trinity are holy, your body, soul, and spirit must also be in a state of holiness and purity.
In order to discover your true identity in life and live in fullness the life God has given you, it is important to first build a true friendship with yourself. That includes all of you, inside and out and accepting yourself for who you are, both good and bad. For me, this is a work in progress. As I end today’s blog post, I pray the content of this post will inspire and touch someone. In Jesus’ name, Amen!! One love, one peace, one Flo 🙂
