Recently, I have gained a few pounds, okay maybe more than a few...
I have committed to a new way of eating and I joined a gym.
As I was preparing for the gym this morning, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the extra "stuff" we have when we start this Christian journey.
It takes commitment and dedication to rid ourselves of the "stuff". We have to "go hard" and not give up.
Unfortunately, sometimes that pound you lost may show back up and you have to start over. Guess what? That "stuff" you thought was gone, may present itself to you again. What do you do? Stay committed, do not give up, keep going hard. Stay in the Word. Pray without ceasing. Remember Who has you in the palm of His Hand.
You win! The victory is yours!
1 Thessalonians 5:17, Philippians 3: 12-14
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
