Day 5: Lost or Gained
Where did that lost hour go, when we turned our clocks forward?
Wherever it may be
it may appear to be lost,
but it is 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 "FASTING" from those 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 whatever 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?
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 that needs to be filled.
But it becomes easier when
JESUS becomes the ONE whom you release it to
HE will replace whatever you need to lose
with MORE OF HIMSELF
enabling you to
"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)
FAST from whatever is "weighing" you down
By casting it upon
has so much for you to gain.
So that you will~
"...count everything as loss compared to the possession of the
priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, & supreme advantage)
of knowing CHRIST JESUS as my LORD & of progressively
becoming more deeply & intimately acquainted with
HIM [of perceiving and recognizing and 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)
Lost or GAINED?
Oh always GAINED when we embrace
"MORE OF YOU" (listen to the song below)
