Day 16: What's Eating you?


Is food really the enemy or is it the "appetizer" that comes first?

You know~

when the appetizer of ANGER, ANXIETY or FRUSTRATION wets your palette

& you then reach for food.

If you are what you eat, then if you eat ANGER won't you be angry?

Oh the Temptation to eat

FEAR, DOUBT & BITTERNESS & ________.

What are you really eating, or what is really eating you?

Hmm...

It all began in the garden when DOUBT was dressed as an apple.

Abiding in the wrong vine. You become what you abide in.

But what if we FASTED from the real culprits that weigh us down.

Losing a pound of SHAME & BLAME

or BITTERNESS & REJECTION

or UNWHOLESOME TALK & CONDEMNATION

or _________.

Well tomorrow is the day~

FEBRUARY 17~

the first day of LENT,

when many FAST from "something"

in the time of WAITING for EASTER.

To FAST.

To abstain. To deny.

To say no when you want to say yes.

Going without something that you desire.

So how do we

BE WAITLESS~ MOVING FORWARD IN THE MIDDLE OF WAIT?

By

PUTTING OFF,

FASTING FROM

the

the REAL things that "weigh" us down

that strive to steal

our experiencing the

abundant life that JESUS has come to give

as we are in middle of

WAITING

for the

BREAKTHROUGH

that EASTER represents.

Do you want to draw closer to JESUS

in order to

gain

MORE PEACE

MORE JOY

MORE HOPE

MORE LOVE.

Oh it is possible, as we don't do it alone.

JESUS knows the struggle, as HE experienced it first hand, yet never succumbed to it~

"Because HE HIMSELF suffered when

HE was tempted, HE is able to help those who are being tempted" (Hebrews 2:18).

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 take you to spaces & places

where

less becomes MORE~

No MORE anger.

No MORE anxiety.

No MORE fear.

No MORE ________.

because

now is the time

to drop

the weight

that weighs us down.

while we

WAIT.

What is in your "SUITCASE" (listen to the song below)

that you need to

release so that you can

BE WAITLESS~ MOVING FORWARD IN THE MIDDLE OF WAIT?

Join the Journey

FEBRUARY 17- APRIL 4
