Body Image

Psalm 139:14: “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
Body image is the perception of, beliefs about, and attitudes toward one’s body. Many people struggle with their body image largely because of comparisons made between themselves and an ideal standard that may not be based in reality. The perception of one’s physical body is impacted by a variety of factors including self-worth, emotions, the culture’s standard of beauty, and friends and family. Inaccurate body image perceptions negatively impact physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health. Appropriate attention to body image issues is important because of the impact it has on these areas of life. A fundamental component in the battle against negative body image issues is a shift to focusing on who we are in Christ rather than on how we look.
