Lent wellness day 4

Lent Wellness challenge day 4

Sometimes when we leave old patterns behind it can hurt.  Our old undesirable behaviors have become a friend to us.  Our comfort behaviors, destructive as they can be, feel just that, comforting.  When I first quit drinking I really missed drinking.  Quitting drinking was one of the best choices I have made in my life.  It gave me the ability to walk in His love.  Before I quit, drinking had become my God.  Most of you are not alcoholic.  Yet, many of us rely on things to comfort us that are not God.  I have used ice cream, exercise, cheese, soda, co-dependent relationships, gossip, and complaining to comfort me before I even asked for His help.  Today, when it feel painful to give up the old and walk in the new, don’t look back just push forward in the upward call of God.  Knowing that His comfort is exceedingly greater then the momentary pleasure we can get from our comfort behavior.

 1 Peter 5:10  “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” KJV

Be fit and be blessed,

  1. This is so true for me. I use food for comfort and to find some quick happiness. And I am finding it painful to leave these bad habits. I want God to be my comfort and happiness. Lord Jesus, help me to overcome. Thank you. I don't want the focus to be on me, on how beautiful I can be. But on God that He sustains me. My focus needs to be on God my Father and Jesus my Savior.

  2. Try to exhale and say His name, Jesus when you need a little help!
    Be blessed,
