Set free from cheat days
I don’t know about you, but I could relate to this picture.
For a loooooonnnngggg time, I justified a week of being “good” (eating, exercising, drinking my water, etc…) by “rewarding” myself with a “cheat day.”
I qualified my “goodness” through my many “achievements” of these healthy habits, which became idols.
I sabotaged my M-F efforts on the weekends (and then regretted it and started every new week “punishing” myself for being “bad” Saturday/Sunday.)
The word “cheat” is never a good thing–ever.
It took me a long time to transform my mind, (and I still struggle) but I’ve reframed all of these words and have replaced them, along with healthy behaviors, in order to set myself free from the bondage that kept me living in these constant-self-sabotaging-
If any of this relates, I feel for you.
I want to speak life and Truth as you begin this week:
You are pure goodness–just as you are.
You are God’s reward!
No amount of worldly treasure could ever match your worth.
I pray that as you start this new week and tie a bow on February, you begin afresh, knowing that God has great things in store for you–beyond your wildest imagination–are you willing to work with Him?
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever
imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us,
his Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
Eph 3:20 MSG
P.S. If any of this spoke to you, let me know.

I would love to pray for you to be set free.
