Well we’ve had a couple of weeks now to fail our New Years Resolution; am I right? Unfortunately, we have not done as well as we could have but does that mean that we give up for the entire year; really? Think about what you are saying or thinking right now.
Oh, what to do…what to do. So what do we do? We tell ourselves the truth and we do not let our spandex clothing stretch the truth out of shape.
We have another fifty more weeks ahead to deal with extra pounds or what ever looms. There is time to recoup.
First, we start NOW; we do not wait till Monday. We dare not wait lest five pounds becomes 10.
We eat smaller portions of some things and larger portions of others. I don’t have to tell you which is which! We read labels, we return to our neglected exercise and weight loss classes. We start NOW, because the Awful Truth is that if we don’t, we shall blossom forth into large sizes beyond our control.
Oh, I forgot to add the most important to- do. We place ourselves under the control of the Holy Spirit, We indulge heavily in the fruit of the Spirit, especially self-control, and we pray without ceasing!
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! (Galatians 5:22-23, NLT)
Prayer-Dear God, we’ve done it again. We’ve collapsed in our weakest moments. We did not lean on you for everything and here we are again. We trust your grace to help us to take care of the bodies you gave us. In Christ. Amen.
