Food Glorious Food


So~

What are you going to give up for Lent?

Hopefully it isn't chocolate because today is also

Valentines Day~

the day of feasting on

Chocolate & Sweet Tart Hearts,

Today begins the

46 Day Journey to

Easter~

when

God expressed the biggest

I Love You

on the cross

when

He gave up more than just chocolate..

So

What are you going to Give up for Lent?

For most it is a favorite tempting food~

Food glorious food! It all began in the garden & one bite of an apple is all that it took, from the wrong tree. But the temptation is real~ To say yes when we should say no. 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

But

is it really about the food?

If you are what you eat,

then what if you eat Anger, won't you be angry?

Think about it~

The 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.

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 enable you to

become

Weightless

as you

Fast from

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.
