Lightest Diet Well it’s that time again and we are all looking forward to the food and celebrations most times but we are not looking forward to the extra weight and extra attitudes that come along with it. So why do we put ourselves through this each year if it hurts and causes stress? After Christmas the fad diets and everyone else jumps on the band wagon to make money off people. If you do this you will lose, if you exercise more, cut back, go to the gym, eat only this food and the list goes on. So if the world knows and sees that a heavy body is not good for you. Not good for your organs, joints, and excessiveness to lose it – then maybe we can apply this to our soul too. So if having a heavy body is not good, having a heavy spirit is not good. A heavy spirit takes part in and partakes of things like gloom, bitterness, negativity, worry, selfishness, frustration, pride, worldliness, hopelessness, fear, doubt and more. A lot of these things are great and large at Christmas and we really don’t enjoy our Christmas. What if Jesus has a diet for us and it is quite simple. Colossians 3:12,13 “Put on then, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, bearing with one another…forgiving, so the Lord will forgive you.” Matthew 11:29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I Am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest.” Messiah’s Diet You’re not alone, He’s always with you.Let Him love you and care for you.Give Him your troubles and burdens.Trust in Him with all your heart.Be humble as He is humble.Don’t focus on you but on Him.Give thanks daily, hourly, when things come at you.All things work together if you love Him. This diet the world can’t give, man can’t give. He never leaves, disappoints, is impatient, and always listens when you talk to Him, and not complain to man. Turn your complaining into prayers that can change things. So lets NOT diet gloom, bitterness, negativity, worry, selfishness, frustration, pride, worldliness, hopelessness, fear, doubt. But let us diet and workout on compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, longsuffering, forgiving, love, gentleness, and rest in Him. THEN YOU WILL HAVE A TONED AND TRIM SOUL AND YOUR BODY WILL ALIGN WITH IT.
