You Are

You are not actually what you eat.
You are not what you wear.
You are more than both of those things.
Life is about more than food and clothes.

Whether you are born in a place where you spend so much time trying to decide what not to wear and what not eat because you have so many choices or you are born in a place where you don’t know where your next meal is coming from or if your shoes will last until you can get new ones- obsession in either way steals your time, energy and focus off what life is really about.

“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. (Matthew 6:25, 26 MSG)

You are not actually what you eat.
You are not what you wear.
You are more than both of those things.
Life is about more than food and clothes.

Life is about love, about risk, about adventure.
Life is about serving, giving, helping, loving.
Life is about being filled with God’s amazing grace every day and then pouring out on all those around us.
Life is about focusing on God and knowing he is focused on us.

Life is about worshipping God when we wake, when we walk, when we clean, when we work, when we eat, when we get dressed. Life is about knowing that you are loved by your Father in heaven. Life is about knowing that when He looks at you, He loves you for who you are (and whose you are- his) not what you wear or what you eat or don’t eat.

You are not actually what you eat.
You are not what you wear.
You are more than both of those things.
You are a child of God who is cherished, chosen and provided for.
