I've had a pretty good self image for most of my adult life, but I'll tell you what, my growing belly has be anxious. I know, it sounds ridiculous, right? All I've been praying for is a healthy baby, and here I am concerned about how big I'm getting....not to mention how much bigger I'll be at 39 weeks.
I feel like I need to get a grip. It's in this I'm reminded in 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, who you have received from God? Your are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."
My concern about my growing size had nothing to do with God and all to do with my vanity, and I'm growing a human for goodness sake! It can be so easy to get caught up in comparison: I will never be one of those long-legged pregnant beauties on Pinterest, but God made me and I'm in the midst of creating a life of my own. I think I need to remember I am to honor God with my body, with how I fuel it, and take care of it. If I'm doing that, that's what matters.
I'm not sure where you are with your body image, but comparison is the thief of joy. God loves us as we are. I'm not sure how big I will eventually end up getting with this baby, but that's ok. I plan to honor God and get over myself.
