The 41st Day
The basket is empty
The chocolate bunny is eaten
The fast is over
So what now?
If you gave up cookies for lent are you now eating a bag of oreos?
If you gave up a glass of wine are you now drinking a bottle?
If you gave up _____________ are you giving into it now?
When we fasted from the weights of this world
the past 40 days
did it bring you closer to God
because your eyes were fixed on His Son?
I know it did for me
as I had to fast
as I was the one who has been
spouting off my mouth the past 40 days about fasting,
it has been life changing.
So what do I do now...
forgetting I fasted from that,
I have been dreading this
Because now what?
Do I put Jesus back in the tomb until Christmas
when I place Him back in the manger in 252 days?
But Jesus didn't put Himself back in the tomb.
not looking back
He still wore the scars in His hands and His feet.
He moved forward
Walking as the
He is for real
He said to doubting Thomas~
“Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side.
Do not doubt but believe. John 20:27
It is really Me
The Risen Lord
He has risen to walk with you
The Day After
it is really about
Living Daily with the Risen Lord
we can't undo what has already been done?
It is finished.
Where are your 40 pounds that you lost?
Are you tempted to gain them back?
Which pound tries to keep weighing you down?
Sad to say
but the temptation to gain back the weight
is so great
you can let it go again
and it gets
easier and lighter
as He gets bigger in your life…
because He came to carry your weight.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9
It is by
Putting into Practice.
It is a forever process until forever comes.
Say no to the cookie yes to the carrot.
Over my lifetime
I lost 500 pounds
hmm... actually more than that
but I did it the wrong way,
losing a lot more than i planned~
and then I
gained myself back
because of the
fed me with
All of Him
Who enables me
Who enables you
to live weightless
flying above all that tries to weigh you down
Are you ready to put off and put on..
And live Waitless in the moment?
the wait is over~
He has risen
to walk with us.
As long as we are on this earth there is a lot of weight to lose
will you join me and continue to lose more pounds
take the hand of the
who wants to walk with us on the
what do you have to lose?
