Work on your heart not your body

I know you have heard me mention the book "The Truth About Guys" by Chad Eastham. Amazing book, I advice every teenage girl to read it. I've read it like three times & I always get something new out of it.

I love how God shows you things right when you need them. Y'all know that I have had a problem with my body lately since the incident at the dress store with the new kid.. & about me following my flesh instead of God, Himself. Well, I was reading this book just now, before I was going to lay down & it says..

"God wants you to put down the mud that you're playing in and trust him. He has a treasure that he will give you instead. The treasure is something beautiful and won't easily slip away. God wants you to focus on your heart, not your body. You can trust that God's plan is better than your own, and he's working in someone's heart right now as you read this book! He is working to make that heart one that will love you the way you deserve to be loved. But now it's your turn. A friend of mine once said "Your heart and body should be so wrapped up in God that a man has to go directly to Him to ask for it." Wouldn't that be nice? A guy who asked for directions from the only one who knows the answer?"

That my friend, was amazing. That my friend, made me cry. Ahh! I love how God works. I think I might be getting this thing sorted out. Still trying to slap myself right in the flesh & look to God for guidance in my life.
