Day 5: What do you have to Lose?


Where did that lost hour go, when we turned our clocks forward?

It may appear to be lost, but it can be found.

How about in that extra hour of sunshine at the end of the day?

So we will adjust our inner clocks to compensate for the loss.

LOSS IS GAIN.

As we are losing those nasty "pounds" daily,

we are gaining more of

JESUS.

What stubborn pound do you need to lose?

Now it is your turn.

Through our 40 Day Journey,

Sundays will be your day

TO FAST

from what is weighing you down.

Whatever it may be...

Is it a habit that you just can't seem to break?

Is it a negative emotion that consumes you?

Ii it bitterness or anger?

Is it a relationship that brings you down?

Is it a ___________?

You fill in the blank.

Letting go is hard to do, because it leaves behind a hole behind

that needs to be filled.

But it becomes easier when

JESUS

becomes the One whom you release it to

because

HE will replace whatever you need to lose with

HIMSELF

enabling you to

SPRING FORWARD

beyond whatever is weighing your down.

Therefore,

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under GOD'S mighty hand,

that HE may lift you up in due time.

Cast all your anxiety on HIM because HE cares for you" (I Peter 5:6-7).

and

FAST

from whatever is burdening you~

by casting it upon

THE ONE

Who

has so much for you to gain.

And then you will~

"...count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless

privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage)

of knowing CHRIST JESUS my LORD & of progressively becoming more deeply & intimately acquainted with HIM [of perceiving & recognizing & understanding HIM more fully & clearly]. For HIS sake I have lost everything & consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain)

CHRIST (the Anointed One)." (Philippians 3:8)
