He Couldn't Get Out of There Fast Enough!

When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. Psalm 39:11

I think that I had mentioned that I have been dealing with a resistant sty and haven't been using eye makeup, to allow it a better chance to heal. I guess, because of my vanity, although I thought of myself as a very humble person, I wear sunglasses whenever I can to hide the lack of make up.

Well, I started walking through the automatic doors of a local grocery store and this man had this big smile on his face and started to say something to me. It was at that moment that I pulled my sunglasses to the top of my head and the man shut his mouth immediately and stopped dead in his tracks. Within seconds he was out those automatic doors and couldn't get out of there fast enough!

There are many lessons that God has for me in all of this. First of all, one of the difficult things for me to deal with in having a thinner body is unwanted attention from the opposite sex. Well, is that what I was dealing with? Kinda, half way. He was starting to flirt with me, but rushed out the door instead, but I survived both, the flirtation and the rejection. 

There's a part of me that can get caught up in feeling inferior because I was rejected because of the lack of eye makeup, but I didn't want that attention to start with. I could contemplate wearing eye makeup again, but who would I be trying to please and for what purpose?  I really just want God to heal my eyes and don't want to find myself slipping back into a vanity mode. When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. Psalm 39:11

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.


Although I can't comment on the book, because I haven't read it, this video clip has very eye-opening statistics that would be beneficial for all to read. Debbie
