What will people say… when they hear that I had an eating disorder and sometimes still struggle?

In reality, I’m sure that no one is surprised that I’m not perfect. But in my flesh, I desire to be thought of highly. If people know that I still struggle, then they won’t think I’m a good Christian.  The flaws in these statements are twofold.

Share this with a friend or tag someone in the comments as a loving reminder that they are a beautiful creation of God’s - they might really need that this week.

No, you are not perfect just the way you are – 1 Corinthians 12:9
