Yes don’t blame me, I had not had coffee yet 🙂
Sat down to do my coffee date with Jesus. I don’ like to call it a quiet time because I do not want it to be quiet. I want Jesus to speak. Right now I am enjoying doing Kelly Minters study on 1 John called What Love is. sometimes we just need a redefinition of what Love really is.
So today.. the Lord really spoke to my heart about His power. His victory available to us. In every situation– everything that keeps us chained down, every sin we just can’t seem to get freedom from. I personally am thinking of the gluttony of food I ate this weekend at the awesome retreat I was on. I was doing so good being healthy and free from the bondage of food last week . Until I worked a retreat with some incredible teenagers that also involved some incredible food. And let it be said my weakness is party food. That IS my favorite food group. Dips, chips, cookies, finger foods that you can hold in both hands– glooorry!
But I know– I know when I have crossed the line to unhealthy eating, to obsessing about what is in that snack room, to wondering if I will ever find victory over this.
And today , I read 1 John 2. about victory.
And it really ministered to my Tuesday post retreat heart.
This weekend I watched Teenagers put their trust that Christ would over come and bring victory in their lives. It was beautiful. Us adults (although I still feel like a teenager.. that is until the day after the retreat when I am exhausted) also put our trust That Christ would overcome and bring victory.
But the amazing gift, is that victory is not just something to be talked about on a retreat away with Jesus, that victory is available to me to LIVE.
To you .. to live..
