Finding God's Goodness

Week Thirty-Two. Moderation. My True Self. 

Month Eight – Valuing My Body. Temperance with hope leads to self-control. 

What if I just let go? What will I find? Where would I fall? Would I lose all control or would I actually gain self-control? Would I live in moderation or excess and extremes? Would I find my reality is what it is supposed to be and everything is exactly as it should be? My fear of falling affects my self-control. 

As I loosen my grip and unclench my jaw and surrender to the flow, moderation fills my life. I don’t need to conquer or control. I can listen, be present, enjoy, and just be. Reality shifts my perspective to knowing that I’m loved and held as I am shining a light on my true self. 

I live in a reality where a compassionate loving creator draws me to my own goodness.  A place where deep in my bones there is no question I’m fearfully and wonderfully made. A place of eternal hope where my value is measured by how well I love. Loosening my grip on the values of the world gives me space to grow in the gifts I’ve been given. As I fall into the flow, I swim in God’s grace bearing the good fruit of my true self.  

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Psalm: 13-14

Thank you Lord for drawing me into the flow of knowing my true self as You designed.
