Fat Chance

 

God says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. (From Philippians 4:13) Does he mean even when I have one arm in a sling….I think so!

Then I ask myself why I am still fighting that last ten pounds?

It is long after the Christmas season and I continue to struggle on. (Notice that I haven’t spent much time on that topic yet this year!)

Contrary to our opinion, the Bible actually says that we can be perfect. Thankfully the meaning is also complete and lacking nothing essential.’ Listen to this!

But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing. (James 1:4, AMP)

Possibly that last ten pounds is only our own lack of perseverance. Let’s face our own shortcomings and our own truth without blaming God for our lack-a-daisy attitude.

Prayer- Lord, let us meet next year with ten less pounds than this year. Amen.
