Finding Relief from Entrapment

18 12 2010

Does anyone remember how I posted some quotes from a book I was reading?  Well, with how crazy school has been I went ahead and put it down.  Finals are done so I am bringing it back for your enjoyment.  Today is Chapter Three.

~*~Finding Relief from Entrapment~*~

“The truth is that loving oneself–and one’s body–is a discipline all its own.  It means challenging the images that the fashion industry has foisted on us.  It means ignoring the voices that tell us that being healthy is a distant second to being thin.”

“Satan has filled the world with lies and deceptions about the body.  He tempts many to defile this great gift of the body through unchastity, immodesty, self indulgence, and addictions.  He seduces some to despise their bodies; others he tempts to worshit their bodies.  In either case, he entices the world to regard the body merely as an object.”

“Change can happen, even one tiny step at a time.”

“What a bright spot in a world filled with sorrow and uncertainty, to understand the love and constancy that Jesus demonstrated in His atoning sacrifice and in carrying out the Father’s will.  It is assuring also to know that in the extremity of His suffering, “There appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him ” (Luke 22:43) Though it may not be an angel that will comfort and sustain us, we can also receive divine strength in our personal struggles.”
