Day One: A Pound of Self


Today begins our

40+ Day "Weight" Loss Journey

when we will

Lose a Pound a Day~

of those pesky pounds

that you just can't keep off.

The first pound to go is

You

and that begins with

Fasting from

Self~

because

Your "Self"

weighs you down.

Think about it~

When you & when I~

"Trust in and rely confidently on

Self

with all your heart & rely on your

Self's

insight or understanding and

In all your ways know & acknowledge & recognize

Self..."

is Your Self

"able to make your paths straight & smooth

[removing obstacles that block your way]? (Proverbs 3, Your "Self" Version)

Hmm when

Self

takes over it never ends well.

When things are going great,

My Self

likesto step in to mess things up

because you never know

when the other shoe was going to drop.

When things are going not so great,

My Self

likesto step in and feed the woe is me spirit.

How about you....

When things are going ___________ how does your Self try to take over?

Do you need a divorce from yourself?

I divorced myself long ago,

the day

Jesus

reached down and grabbed me out of the pit that I was in

because

Self

was getting in the way.

At the moment I grabbed His hand,

the divorce was final.

But...

Do I try to get Self back into my life?

Oh yes..all the time.

I think that She can convince me that I need Her

or I will be out of control .

She is part of my three persons~

Me, Myself and I.

But now I have another three persons

who replace my mine~

God

Jesus

Holy Spirit~

All that I need

Alimony for life

Do you need a divorce from yourself?

I know a great Judge who will do it for you &

He won’t even judge you.

Just look up & grab

His Hand

and

receive all that He has for you.

So let's fast from

Self

today..

Every time you start depending on

Me, Myself and I

Look up

and

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, & He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord [with reverent awe and obedience] and turn [entirely] away from evil. It will be health to your body

[your marrow, your nerves, your sinews, your muscles—all your inner parts] And refreshment (physical well-being) to your bones.

Proverbs 3:5-8 (Amplified)
