Each week in The Unwasted Life, I encourage readers with a fasting prompt for 3 days that week. I do this to help you eliminate the waste in your life and to encourage you to sacrifice for Christ.
We make sacrifices every single day for the things & people that we love. We sacrifice extra sleep to work out, get dressed, eat breakfast, scroll through our instagram. We sacrifice money to shop, for Starbucks, for music, for ourselves. We sacrifice time for friends, for family, for ourselves, for Netflix. We sacrifice energy for school, for play, for sports, for entertainment.
When was the last time you really sacrificed your time, energy, agenda, money, sleep, etc for JESUS?
Let’s stop wasting our lives for things that just don’t matter in the grand scheme of life, and let’s start sacrificing for Jesus in order to live a life unwasted.
The mark of a mature believer is one who hungers after the Word of God.
Sadly, I’m afraid we have a plethora of malnourished believers walking around.
When we forsake spending time in the Word, we starve ourselves of the nourishment that God longs to give us.
What voices are you listening to? It all comes back to what you’re taking in. What are you feeding on?
Opinions of others?
Locker room talk?
It’s time we start feasting on the Word of God. The riches at His table, rather than the junk at the world’s drive-thru.
Who’s ready to feast with me on the Word of God? Grab your copy of THE UNWASTED LIFE on Amazon today, and you’ll find an entire section about tasting and feasting on the Lord’s goodness.
PS: Who wants to do an online study group with teaching videos from me??
Give me a 🙋🏼 if you’re in!
For a long time I was measuring and marking myself by the world’s measuring system. But God doesn’t measure by the world’s system.
Your list of accomplishments.
Your list of failures
ALL FADE AWAY IN THE EYES OF GOD. These lists just don’t matter.
No success, accolade, or accomplish will ever bring you the identity or worth you’re searching for.
No failure, no insult, no lost friendship, mistake, heartbreak, low GPA, or WHATEVER can strip you of the identity and worth that is solely found in Christ.
When everything else loses it’s power to measure and determine our worth, rather than ebbing and flowing with the ups & downs of successes and failures, we will remain steady and sure, FOUND IN CHRIST.
Friend, are you tired of sliding up & down on the scale of worth that this world demands we stand on? Are you tired of being controlled by this ever-changing measuring system?
We find freedom when all those things lose their weight, and we rest in being found in Christ alone.
Join me in reading THE UNWASTED LIFE, as we journey to find the way to live in this freedom. ❤️
What’s on your success list? What’s on your failure list? What is it that’s chaining you to the world’s scale of worth? Would you mind sharing below? What do you measure yourself by?👇🏼
What I measure myself by:
– How much I DO for God, rather than BEING with God.
– What others think of me.
– How much prettier others are.
– How much better others seem.
