Day 21: Living Weightless



If you are what you eat

what if you eat ANXIETY or ANGER?

Who will you be?

Food glorious food!

We love it & we hate it.

To say no to the cookie & yes to the apple.

But didn't a yes to an apple get us all in trouble~

way back in the very beginning

when Eve said yes?

Oh the Temptation is real

because

I want what I want when I want it

& no one is going to stop me.

Oh the Temptation is real

To "eat"~

ANGER, ANXIETY, BITTERNESS, JEALOUSY, & FEAR

& these are just the appetizers!

What about

REJECTION, GUILT, & DOUBT

& so much more?

So if we are what we eat

what are you "eating" that is weighing you down?

But what if you could lose the REAL stubborn POUNDS that weigh you down

& keep them off?

Can you imagine how light you would be?

Tomorrow is the first day of LENT

when many will begin to

FAST from something

by refocusing their hearts and minds

on JESUS.

To FAST~

To abstain. To deny.

To say no when you want to say yes.

Going without something that you desire.

So I thought

what if we take this season leading to

EASTER

and FAST daily from the REAL WEIGHTS of the world

that rob us of the abundant life that JESUS has come to give.

TO FAST from~

ANGER

ANXIETY

FEAR

DOUBT

________...

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

Because JESUS was tempted for 40 days

& did not give into it,

HE will take whatever you give HIM

& you will lose so much more than you could ever imagine

because you will gain so much more

PEACE

HOPE

LOVE

FORGIVENESS

&

JOY

So let's spend the next "40"* days of LENT,

*(actually 46 days, as Sundays are not counted through lent)

February 22 - April 8

losing a pound a day

as we FAST from the REAL POUNDS of life

that weigh us down

through our new

DAILY DEVOTIONAL SERIES:

"LIVING WEIGHTLESS"

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 it

the moment you

"COME TO THE WELL" (listen to the song below)

*Actually 46 Days to Easter.
