The Last Five Pounds

“I’m tired of losing the same five pounds over and over.”  I guess my friend was tired of my whining. This is her reply.

“Then don’t lose them!   If you lose something then you usually look for it and then you find it.

Try releasing it to Jesus in prayer and worship and watch him get the glory. It may not happen overnight or as quickly as you want but it will happen in His timing.”

How will you use this wisdom in your own life? It applies anywhere from pounds to people.

Think of the bad attitudes, the cranky relatives and the size twenty slacks that keep turning up in our vicinity.

This is the only finding we should be worried about.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7, NIV)

Prayer – Father God, steer us in the right direction so that the things we keep looking for all lead to you and your will for our lives. Amen
