Day 1: A Pound Of Self


Today begins our

40 DAY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY~

when we will

LOSE A POUND A DAY~

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 & rely confidently on

SELF

with all your heart & rely on your

SELF'S

insight or understanding &

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

likes to step in to mess things up,

because you never know

when the other shoe is going to drop.

When things are going not so great,

MY SELF

likes to 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 & 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 & I.

But now I have another three persons

who replace 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

&

receive all that HE has for you.

So let's FAST from

SELF

today~

Every time you start depending on

ME, MYSELF & I

Look up instead

&

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

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

(Proverbs 3:5-8 AMP)

Because

you, me & everyone else

can't do this life thing

on our own

as we are here

while trying to get there,

yet WAITING at the same time.

Let's

BE WAITLESS~MOVING FORWARD IN THE MIDDLE OF WAIT

and

FAST from ME, MYSELF & I

by letting

GOD

take control and take ourselves

""OUT OF MY HANDS" (listen to the song below)
