THE BEAUTY OF BEING SLIM

Oh yeah! You read it right, there’s beauty in being slim. If not, why do people like to keep fit!

Should I say the beauty of being slim fit because people will judge me and say they keep fit not because they are fat but to be healthy and all?

I’ve not actually come to shame body anyone, I have no right to. But best believe there’s beauty in being slim enough to enter some cloths na..lol. Most importantly, you are free of being obese which can lead to health issues, let’s not start to talk on how you can still be slim and your cholesterol level is high which can predispose you to health issues too…I’m a medic and sometimes it gets in the way.

Days back, I was sharing with a friend how narrow heaven is, and I wanted to check the dictionary for narrow, I think you all know what it is- having a small width; not wideslimslender.

As we all know too, the road to heaven is narrow, if we think about it, you can’t have a thin road and a large car enters, or a slim door and a fat person enters easily, it might take struggling to enter. A friend of mine replied to my status and said ‘how can a fat person follow the narrow way?’

I see the journey to heaven in such manner, do you? But how slim or narrow is this road? How slim should I be to pass through into heaven?

Matthew 7:13-14
[13]Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
[14]Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

What do people do when they start to feel overweight to probably to keep fit? They gym.

Even people who are not overweight are in gyms now just to keep their weight in checks and still look okay, they don’t have to wait for when they are overweight, they just want to live healthy, so it’s not until you call it sin, you should keep your soul in check always, gyming out the little foxes that can spoil your vine.

Funny enough, these people don’t contradict in their diet, they start to watch their diet…what is your diet? What do you take in to your spiritual soul? What message do you receive? Do you mix being of the world and being of Christ? You can’t successfully be of good shape in that manner.

The excesses, you know it, the loads you still carry on this journey, you might have started with it, but getting to the finished line strong needs you drop them . “Come, ye that are heavy laden” he will give you rest!

The load of anger, worldly slangs, etc. The road to heaven is too narrow to allow excesses, get rid of your desires that are so strong and want to control you.

Many are scared to miss it when it comes to marriage and that’s when they come to the point of who is the will of God, but you should as well be scared of missing the way to heaven when you don’t know the will of God concerning that relationship, that dressing, speech, etc.

A song writer says;

Signs of the time are everywhere and there’s a brand new feeling in the air, lift your eyes upon the eastern sky, lift up your eyes redemption draws near. Jesus is coming soon!

Do not miss heaven, I pray not to as well.
