I reflected on my sins tonight, and for the next forty days I will be disciplining myself by staying away from sugar. I indulge in sugary treats, and I drown my sorrows in sugar. I know it’s wrong as I’m doing it, yet I continue.
Not anymore. I will be tempted, but in my temptation I will turn to God. I will ask God to take my sorrows and comfort me. I will indulge in his word.
For as we were reminded tonight that we are mere mortals and ashes we were created from and ashes we will return. The only way to eternal life is through Jesus Christ, who sacrificed EVERYTHING for us.
I pray that the next forty days you will meditate on what Jesus did for you and reflect on your sins and come to repentance and humility in the name of Jesus. Amen
