Theme: Made up Mind (Part I)
I went on the scale this morning and the weight revealed was, well, I think that is my secret for now. My ideal body weight for BMI purposes is 140lbs, which means I need to lose a certain amount of pounds. I am pretty sure this scale’s revelation is not surprising to me. I have lost tabs on the number of times I have resolved to get the weight down, not necessarily to 140, but to what I feel comfortable in. Over time though, I have appeased my fleshly appetite and satisfied my lazy desires. Gluttony for me became a very close companion.
Today though, our theme is about having a made up mind. All it takes is one step, and then, another, and another. Jesus made up His mind to die for me, knowing even beforehand the betrayal and neglect He would get from His friends. He was aware of the intense pain and agony He would have to endure. But, He made up His mind to follow through with the mission.
I am choosing today to have a made up mind not just about the weight, but also about the wait on whatever it is I am looking for. Will you?
“I have made up my mind to obey your laws forever, no matter what.” Psalms 119:112, CEV
Question for ponder: Have you ever made up your mind to do something and struggled to follow through?
