You Are What You Eat

If you are what you eat, then if you eat


Won't you be angry?

Food glorious food!

It all began in the garden and

one bite of an apple is all that it took,

from the wrong tree.

Eating the wrong food,

Abiding in the wrong vine

You become what you abide in.


The temptation is real.

To say yes when we should say no.

Jesus endured temptation for 40 days, so that He could relate to us

Because He himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.

Hebrews 2:18

Jesus knows the struggle, as He experienced it first hand, yet never succumbed to it

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet He did not sin.

Hebrews 4:15

Temptation to eat

Anger, Anxiety, Bitterness, Jealousy, Fear...

and these are just the appetizers!

What about

Rejection, Anger, Guilt, Doubt...

And so much more.

Eating of what weighs you down.

Because Jesus was tempted for 40 days

and did not give into it,

let's spend the next 40 days

losing a pound a day

as we fast from

what weighs you down.

We spent the 24 days before Christmas picking up

The Baby,


it is easy to pick up a baby.

There is a sense of control


the baby is helpless in the arms of the controller.

The roles have now shifted

as Jesus tells us to become like little children.

and take His hand


Who is the baby now?

It takes a leap of faith…

but that leap is only a hand away.

Are you ready to become the baby in the arms of your Controller?

Reach out because He is reaching out to you…

And take HIs Hand


you will become what you eat..





What is in your hand that you are getting ready to eat?

Get ready to drop it so you can take the hand of the

One Who

will make you Weightless.
