Just Stop It!


Just...

STOP IT

Just

STOP IT.

Two little powerful words

shared by

Bob Newhart

for only 5 dollars

but

I thank you Bob Newhart

for giving me

the best advice that is

priceless.

I laugh ever time I watch this...

something so silly

something so true

yet

so hard to do.

Doesn't it just come down to stop doing whatever is making you crazy?

But

those words

tells us something deeper~

that we have a

choice

to do

or not to do~

that is the question

yet it is also

the answer...

Just

STOP IT

because

God said it

first

and

sent

Someone

to help us to

Just

STOP

Being anxious about everything

Just

STOP IT

by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

STOP

worring about your life, what you will eat or drink;

or about your body, what you will wear.

Just

STOP IT

and seek first His kingdom and his righteousness... Matthew 6:25, 33

STOP

Doubting

Just

STOP IT

and

cry out and say “I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:24

What do you know you need to stop doing, but you just can’t seem to STOP IT?

Easier said than done.

I am not trying to minimize the pain of the power of a habit or behavior that you just can’t stop…

as I just couldn’t stop it, no matter who told me to,

even when I heard the words from Jesus

because I would tell

Him to

STOP IT

when I chose to be

Anxious

Angry

Frustrated

Bitter...

I tell Him to

STOP IT

when I chose to

Doubt

Dear

Worry.

But

when

Jesus comes

and says

STOP IT

what He really is saying is:

I love you

Trust Me

Receive and Believe

That’s it!

STOP IT

is

the word for the day.

The simple truth of

STOP IT~

throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

Just

STOP IT

by

fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:2

because

His Eyes

are

Fixed on you!

I challenge you

as I'm challenging myself

to put off

whatever is weighing you down

from

living the abundant life that

Jesus

came

to give you.

Sorry Nike

Just Do It

is not going to fly anymore

because we going to

Just STOP IT

.. .and it isn't going to cost you

5 dollars!
