Encouraging Your Spirit
IT’S DARK. GOD ARE YOU HERE? The draw. The need. It screams. The mind says “Don’t go off plan. Don’t eat that.” The whisper says “You’ll still be within 5% of compliance. It’s OK, your not perfect.”. The struggle. It’s real.
You’ve eaten something — or a lot of something(s) — that doesn’t support your health or goal. Pause.
Your not alone. Get real and acknowledge it. I’ll pull that weed, But first, my beloved, you must see it. It has come up through the soil of your heart. Let Me get hold of it.
Allow whatever you feel to rise to the surface. Write it down or say it out loud. Don’t analyze. Don’t judge. Confess.
My lofty desires to do what is good are dashed when I do the things I want to avoid. Romans 7:19
God in Heaven, I’ve got a weed. You know it and I know it. Help me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
