God’s strength made perfect in our weakness. As I’m writing this post, I’m realizing that again, because I literally melted down selfishly over something related to food prep and making food, all because I am TOO focused on food control and such (ED GO AWAY!). Yet God is working on me, and I’m writing this realizing how silly it is of me to melt down over things like that; I am still very much a work of pottery in progress, a wretched sinner being mended, refined, stripped of so many idols.
These eating disorder recovery stories remind me of the beauty of that journey of God’s grace, of Jesus’ cleansing power. Naomi is one of those. She started her blog almost a year ago, and I can not believe that I found her blog and found some of the most encouraging posts I’ve encountered on eating disorder recovery, body positivity, and food freedom that I’ve ever read.
Here are some of my most favorite post from her:
Naomi is kind and tender and truthful in every one of her blog posts. She understands the struggles of diet culture in college. She understands the struggles of transitioning to intuitive movement and intuitive eating, but I have been humbled and thankful to see how she has grown incredibly over the past year in these areas. You will smile so much and nod in agreement with Naomi’s story in many ways. I’m thankful to be able to share it with you.
