An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

One More Time

(Pro 7:18 KJV) Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

Just this once and then I will stop.  How many times have I said that to myself?  How many times have I stopped?  One answer is, “Many” and the other time it is “Almost never.”  Years ago I lost a lot of weight.  It is slowly coming back.  I am still fighting the battle.  Usually I just give up and start eating again.  This time every pound has to fight its way kicking and screaming onto my body.  I like to blame others for the gain.  You know the drill, they fix your favorite desert.  They want to go to a fancy restaurant.  It is Christmas.  I keep telling myself those are the problems.  

Wrong.  The problem is that I always go for that second portion or continue the lack of restraint when I am by myself.  It is a continual parade of “just one more.”  It doesn’t work that way.

So?  Don’t give in or give up.  I know that is easy to say and hard to do.  It is still doable.  God is patient and forgiving.
