DAY THIRTY ONE: WEIGHT LOSS GOD’S WAY
Congratulations! 31 days. One month. We did it! I say “we” because I pray you are absolutely marvelously ruined to the truth that God is the hero of your story. You and I just partnered up with him for 31 days as he fought the fight you could not win apart from Him.
I pray your old ways of approaching health and fitness feel like chains around your feet. But most earnestly I pray that you are aware, more than ever, that you are a whole person. That Jesus came to proclaim good news to the whole you, to bind up the whole you, to release from prison your whole self, and to set your captive heart free to follow after God. That wherever he is going, he wants your whole self to come along, too. In the words of Elizabeth Elliot, “You can’t give God your heart and keep your body for yourself.”
