I started 2020 with
FASTING from "myself"~
instead of making
as I am never able to keep them because they are PROMISES to "myself".
So if I am in charge of myself,
then I have the free will to do what I want to do when I want to do it~
meaning I can break even my own PROMISES that I make for myself.
Me, Myself & I
are free to do what we want to do when we want to~
and that is why I am FASTING from "myself"
every time "myself" starts to stir the pot~
striving to take over by
drowning out the PROMISES that GOD has made that HE never ever ever breaks.
When FEAR strives to distract
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your GOD. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with MY righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10).
When TRIALS strive to distract
"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory
that far outweighs them all" (2 Corinthians 4:17).
When we are so distracted by ourself & get in the way of
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for HE who PROMISED is faithful"
Because HE PROMISES & all we have to do is follow HIS PROMISES~
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the GOD of peace will be with you" (Philippians 4:8-9).
let's finish out the first month of 2020 with our eyes off of "me, myself & I"~
what we feel & what we SEE right before our eyes
and get REFOCUSED on HIS PROMISES~
"Let us fix our eyes on JESUS, the author and perfecter of our faith..."(Hebrews 12:2)
JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION
"For my FATHER'S WILL is that everyone who looks to the SON and believes in HIM shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day" (John 6:40).
For HIS WAY is way better than my WAY because HE IS
"THE WAY" (listen to the song below)
