The enemy wants you dead. And what better way to kill you than to starve you out and bleed you dry? What would be even better, is if he could lie to you and get you to do it yourself…. That is the reality behind eating disorders and self-harm. So stop listening to him. Don’t believe those lies. Go to Jesus and be made whole.
Your existence does not revolve around finding a spouse. It revolves around Christ, loving others, and bringing Him glory.
Do you have this sense of awe and reverence and love and trust and joy in Jesus Christ? Is he your God and your Savior and your Master and your Friend and your Treasure? Are you earnest about him? Do you think on him and keep close fellowship with him through the day?
Or are you like so many who make light of him—through neglect or scorn or trifling? Does it grieve you, for example, when you hear a comedian like Bill Cosby get everybody laughing by saying that he thought his brother’s name was dammit and his was Jesus Christ, because his dad always said, “Dammit, get in here. Jesus Christ! where have you all been!”? Funny? Yes, sort of? The kind of “funny” that brings the whole world to ruin by trifling with infinite holiness and infinite horror."
